Wallbridge Mining Announces Closings of Private Placements

Toronto, Ontario - July 22, 2009 - Wallbridge Mining Company Limited (TSX:WM, FWB: WC7) is pleased to announce that it has closed on tranches of two private placement financings ("the Offerings"). The closings to date comprised 1,400,000 Units at $0.10 per Unit and 1,500,000 Flow Through Shares at $0.11 per share raising aggregate proceeds of $305,000.

The Offerings consist of (i) up to 6,818,181 Flow Through Shares at $0.11 per share ($750,000), which is now fully subscribed, and (ii) up to 7,500,000 Units at $0.10 per unit ($750,000). Further closings with respect to the Offerings are expected to occur within the next two weeks.

Commenting on the placements Alar Soever, President and CEO of Wallbridge stated, "These placements are in keeping with our philosophy of tailoring the size of placements to our immediate needs in order to minimize dilution while still maintaining adequate working capital to advance high priority projects such as our Rogers Creek, BC porphyry-copper-gold-molybdenum project."

Each Unit is comprised of one common share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant where each whole warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one additional common share within a period of two years from closing at an exercise price of $0.20 (Canadian) per share.

Wallbridge raised $90,000 in respect of the placement of 900,000 Units, which closed on July 13, 2009. A further $215,000 was raised in respect of the placement of 500,000 Units and 1,500,000 Flow Through Shares, which closed on July 21, 2009. TSX approval is subject only to filing closing documentation, as preliminary approvals were given in respect to the Offerings on April 27, 2009 and June 23, 2009.
