Medoro Resources Announces Completion of Private Placement

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 3, 2009) –


Medoro Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:MRS) ("Medoro" or the "Company") announced today the closing of its private placement of 128,700,000 special warrants representing the initially announced offering of 125,000,000 special warrants plus the agents' exercise of a portion of their over-allotment option to arrange for the purchase of an additional 3,700,000 special warrants. The special warrants were issued at a price of $0.80 per special warrant for aggregate gross proceeds of $102,960,000.

The offering was made through a syndicate of agents led by GMP Securities L.P. and including Canaccord Capital Corporation, Thomas Weisel Partners Canada Inc., Haywood Securities Inc., Salman Partners Inc. and TD Securities Inc. For their services in connection with the offering, the agents received a cash commission equal to 5.5% of the gross proceeds of the offering. The funds raised, net of fees and expenses, will be used principally for exploration, drilling, debt repayment, social work related to the Zona Alta of the Marmato Mountain acquired in its recently completed acquisition of Colombia Goldfields, and for working capital and general corporate purposes.

Each special warrant entitles the holder thereof to receive one unit of the Company on the exercise or deemed exercise of the special warrant, each unit being comprised of one common share of the Company and one-half of one common share purchase warrant. Each whole common share purchase warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one common share of the Company at a price of $1.25 for a period of two years following the closing date.

The special warrants issued pursuant to the offering, and the securities issuable upon the exercise thereof are, or will be, as the case may be, subject to a four month hold period in Canada commencing on the closing date and expiring on March 4, 2010, except where the distribution thereof is qualified by a prospectus. The Company shall use its reasonable best efforts to obtain a receipt for such (final) prospectus within 60 days of the closing date.

The offering was made in compliance with the rules of the TSX Venture Exchange.
