Wallbridge Announces Private Placement Financing
Toronto, Ontario -- December 15, 2006 -- Wallbridge Mining Company Limited (TSX: WM) today announced it is currently in the process of completing a non-brokered private placement financing for the sale of up to approximately 6.0 million flow-through common shares at $0.50 per share, and 3.0 million non-flow through units at $0.50 per unit aggregating $4.5 million in total private placement financing. The financing is subject to regulatory approval. The funds will be used to advance exploration on the Company's Sudbury area properties and in the case of the non-flow-through units for working capital purposes.
The non-flow through units consist of a common share and half of one common share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant gives the subscriber the right to purchase a common share at $0.75 for a period of two years from closing.
The Corporation may pay finder's fees in the event agents are used to source subscriptions, which fees will be equal to up to 6% of the gross proceeds of all Flow-Through Common Shares and Units sold as a result of the efforts of such agents.
The Company is currently completing a NI-43-101 compliant initial economic assessment (scoping study) on its Broken Hammer resource, and has active drilling programs on its North Range project. Once these programs are complete, drilling will be focused on mineralization which was discovered last year on the Trill and Frost Lake properties.
