Vancouver, British Columbia: Metallis Resources Inc. (TSX-V: MTS) (the “Company” or “Metallis Resources”) is pleased to announce that it has arranged a non-brokered private placement to raise gross proceeds of up to $4,014,000. The financing is expected to close shortly. 

Private Placement Details:

Up to 1,670,000 Non Flow-through Units will be issued at $1.20 per Unit and up to 1,340,000 Flow-through Units will be issued at $1.50 per Flow-through Unit.  Each Non Flow-through Unit will consist of one common share of the Company and one-half of one non-transferable share purchase warrant.  Each Flow-through Unit will consist of one flow-through common share of the Company and one-half of one non-transferable non flow-through share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one additional common share of the Company at a price of $1.65 per share for a period of 36 months following the closing of the financing.

A 6% finders’ fee will be paid in accordance with the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange to EMD Financial Inc. which is acting as the finder in this non-brokered private placement. The private placement is subject to Exchange approval.

Proceeds from the Flow-through Units will be used for further exploration, including drilling, at the company’s 100%-owned Kirkham Property situated in the heart of the Golden Triangle’s Eskay Camp in northwest British Columbia.  Proceeds from the Non Flow-through Units will be used for general working capital purposes.

Fiore Aliperti, Metallis President and CEO states: “We are working as far into the fall season as we can at the Kirkham Property, given the success of our summer exploration programs. This relatively low-dilutive financing builds on an already strong treasury and gives us maximum flexibility as we drill at Thunder North and other promising targets.”
