Each flow-through unit will consist of one flow-through common share and one half of one share purchase warrant.

The Offering is subject to the acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange. In connection with that Private Placement, the Company will pay cash finder's fees in an amount of up-to 8% of the gross proceeds raised and will issue finder's warrants, having the same terms as the Units, in an amount equal to 8% of the Units sold in the Private Placement. All securities issued to purchasers and finders under the Offering will be subject to a four-month hold period from the date of issuance of the securities, pursuant to applicable securities legislation and the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange.

Puma Exploration also announces the closing of a private placement of $250,000 with a strategic institutional fund. With this placement, Puma issued 1,000,000 common shares at the price of $0.25 per share, and 1,000,000 warrants. Each warrant gives its holder the right to purchase one common share at the price of $0.35 per share until June 04, 2014. No intermediation costs, commissions, or broker warrants were incurred as part of this placement. These securities will be subject to a holding period of four months. This placement has received the conditional approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

The proceeds of the private placements will be used for the exploration and development of Puma's properties in New Brunswick and Manitoba, and for general working capital.
