VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - May 18, 2011) -

NOT FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES OR FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES AND DOES NOT CONSTITUTE AN OFFER OF THE SECURITIES DESCRIBED HEREIN.

Paget Minerals Corp. (TSX VENTURE:PGS), ("Paget" or the "Company") today announced that it has completed its previously announced non-brokered private placement for aggregate gross proceeds of $1,150,000.

Paget issued 5.0 million units at a price of $0.23 per unit (the "Common Units"), each consisting of one common share (a "Common Share") of Paget and one whole common share purchase warrant (a "Common Unit Warrant"). Each whole Common Unit Warrant will be exercisable for a period of 24 months at a price of $0.35 per share. The shares are subject to a hold period of four months and one day, expiring September 17, 2011. In the event that the 20-day volume weighted average price of the Common Shares on the TSX-V is greater than $0.35 at any time following the Common Unit Closing Date, the Company may accelerate the expiry date of the Common Unit Warrant by giving notice to the holders thereof and in such case the Common Unit Warrant will expire on the 30th day after the date on which such notice is given by the Company.

A commission totalling $50,000 cash was paid to two finders and 250,000 finder's warrants exercisable at $0.35 with a 2-year term was paid to one of those finders.

The net proceeds received by Paget from the Offering of Common Shares will be used for exploration and development activities and general corporate purposes.
