VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - July 13, 2005) - Pine Valley Mining Corporation (TSX VENTURE:PVM)(OTCBB:PVMCF) is pleased to announce that it has reached an agreement in principle with Sprott Asset Management Inc. to enter into a non-brokered private placement to purchase 1,250,000 shares of its common stock at a price of $4 per share.

Completion of these financing arrangements is subject to certain conditions, including completion of due diligence processes and negotiation of final documentation.
