Premium Exploration Amends Terms of Private Placement

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 20, 2009) - Premium Exploration Inc. (TSX VENTURE:PEM) ("Premium") has amended the terms of the private placement announced on September 11, 2009. Under the terms of the amended offering, Premium intends to raise up to $2,800,000 through a non-brokered private placement of 14,000,000 Units at $0.20 per Unit. Each Unit will consist of one Common Share and one non-transferable Share Purchase Warrant. Each Share Purchase Warrant will be exercisable at a price of $0.30, for a period of 18 months from the closing date of the financing. The securities are subject to a four-month hold period.

The Warrants are subject to an acceleration clause which comes into effect once the shares trade above a weighted average price of 200% or more from the exercise price, for any fifteen consecutive trading-day period subsequent to four months from the Closing Date. In this event, Premium may accelerate the expiry of the Warrants upon providing 60 days' notice to the Warrantholders.

The closing of the offering will be completed in two tranches. The funds raised will include up to 7% finder's fees in cash or shares. The amendment of the private placement is subject to approval from the TSX Venture Exchange.
