All securities acquired pursuant to the private placement have a four month hold period expiring on August 2, 2014 and were sold pursuant to applicable securities law exemptions. The net proceeds will be used for exploration of Savant's South West US properties and general corporate purposes.

John McClintock, president, commented, "The funds raised in this financing increase the company's treasury to approximately $1.2 million allowing us to advance our new Southwest U.S. copper exploration strategy while maintaining a strong balance sheet."
