Revolver Resources Inc. Announces $40 Million Private Placement to Be Completed as Part of Revolver's Takeover Transaction

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - May 4, 2011) -


Revolver Resources Inc., (TSX VENTURE:RZ) ("Revolver"). Mr. Craig Engelsman is pleased to announce that Revolver Resources Inc. has entered into an agreement pursuant to which a syndicate of agents, led by Cormark Securities Inc. and including Paradigm Capital Inc., JonesTrading Canada Inc., HSBC Securities (Canada) Inc. and certain others (collectively, the "Agents"), have agreed to conduct a private placement offering on a best efforts agency basis of up to 80 million subscription receipts ("Receipts") at a price of $0.50 per Receipt for gross proceeds of up to $40 million (the "Offering").

Each Receipt is convertible for no additional consideration into one unit ("Unit"). Each Unit will consist of one common share (a "Common Share") in the capital of Revolver and one-half of one common share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share at a price of $1.00 per Common Share for a period of 24 months following the closing date.

The Company has agreed to pay to the Agents a cash commission equal to six per cent of the gross proceeds raised from the Offering and to issue to the Agents broker warrants exercisable to acquire that number of Units that is equal to six per cent of the number of offered securities sold pursuant to the Offering at an exercise price of $0.50 per Unit at any time on or before the date which is 24 months following the closing of the Offering.

The Offering is related to the previously announced agreement between Revolver and Oculus Mining S.A. ("Oculus") which provides that Revolver shall acquire all of the issued and outstanding shares of Oculus and thus indirectly all of the quotas of Cofersul Mineração Ltda ("Cofersul"), a private Brazilian company (the "Acquisition"). As a result of the Acquisition, Revolver will acquire certain producing iron ore assets arising from Exploitation Permit nº 79, located in the Quadrilátero Ferrifero (iron ore superstructure) Itaúna, Minera Gerais, Brazil. The Offering is intended to provide the requisite financing for Revolver to carry on the business of Oculus and Cofersul post-Acquisition. The Acquisition remains subject to the receipt of requisite regulatory approval, including without limitation, the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange and the shareholders of Revolver.

The gross proceeds from the sale of the Receipts, less the Agents' expenses, will be deposited into escrow pending Revolver completing the escrow release conditions which include: (a) receipt of all regulatory approvals required to complete the Acquisition, (b) Revolver and Oculus agreeing that all conditions under the definitive agreement have been satisfied and (c) that the Common Shares to be issued upon the exercise of the Receipts will, subject to relevant securities laws, only be subject to the statutory hold period of four months plus one day.

Closing of the Offering is scheduled to occur on or about June 30, 2011, or such other date as Cormark Securities Inc. and Revolver may agree.

Revolver is currently a Tier 2 mining issuer. The acquisition is an arm's-length transaction and upon completion thereof, it is anticipated that Revolver will apply for a Toronto Stock Exchange listing. There is no assurance that Revolver will be listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange.

Other information and updates

The Common Shares are currently listed for trading on the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV"). In accordance with TSXV policy, the Shares are currently halted from trading and will remain halted until such time as determined by the TSXV which, depending on the policies of the TSXV, may not occur until the completion of the Acquisition and the Offering.
