Toronto, Ontario – October 4, 2012 – PJX Resources Inc. (“PJX”) is pleased to announce it has amended and closed a non-brokered private placement announced on September 17, 2012. The amended private placement was oversubscribed and closed with the issuance of 8,939,500 million units for total proceeds of $1,485,720 through the issuance of 1,385,000 flow through units (“Flow Through Unit”) at a price of $0.20 per flow through unit, and 7,565,500 non-flow-through units (“Unit”) at a price of $0.16 per non-flow through unit. Each Unit, whether acquired as part of a Unit or a Flow Through Unit, consists of one common share and one non-transferable common share purchase warrant. Each warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one common share at an exercise price of $0.25 for 24 months following completion of the offering. All securities issued under the offering are subject to a four-month hold period.
In aggregate, and in accordance with the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange, $82,954 brokerage commissions and 507,360 brokers’ warrants were paid to Union Securities Ltd., Canaccord Genuity Corp., PI Financial Corp., and East-West Trade Partners Inc.
The proceeds from the issuance of the Flow-Through Units shall be used to fund exploration expenditures on the Company’s Canadian mineral projects and will qualify as Canadian exploration expenses (as defined in the Income Tax Act). The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the offering for expenditures on the Cranbrook, British Columbia Properties and for general working capital.
“This financing will allow PJX to test new, large target areas for gold and other metals. Many of these targets were identified by compiling historical work with new mapping and modern airborne technologies. We expect that more targets will be identified as we continue to focus our exploration on areas with the greatest potential for discovery.“ states company President and CEO John Keating.
Multiple target areas with gold and base metal potential on the Eddy property will be the first to be tested by drilling this fall. These large targets were identified by an airborne geophysical survey and occur in areas with historical surface showings of gold, copper, lead, zinc and silver. The new targets have never been tested and do not occur at surface.
Gold targets on the Zinger property are also planned to be drilled this fall. Grab samples of rock at surface have returned gold values ranging from anomalous to up to 39 g/t along a 4.5 kilometre trend on the property. An airborne geophysical survey has identified areas with greater resistivity near surface that correlate with altered zones containing gold. Modeling of the geophysical data suggests that the resistive zones increase in size at depths below 300m. Drilling will test potential for gold within the altered zones and the geophysical anomaly at depth.
Dewdney Trail Property
Exploration on the Dewdney Trail properties has identified target areas with potential to host large sediment-hosted gold deposits. Mapping in the M1 area this summer has defined a structural warping in the sediments that is associated with areas having the most visible gold and grades up to 15 g/t in grab samples. Similar mapping in the Lewis Creek area has better delineated a large structural fold that occurs with a 2.5 km long gold in soil trend. Additional soil sampling and exploration work will be done this fall to define targets for future trenching and/or drilling.
The Vine Property has an historical resource estimate of 1.3 million tonnes grading 2.2 grams per tonne gold, 36.3 grams per tonne silver, 3.12 per cent lead, 3.12 per cent zinc and 0.11 per cent copper. The resource estimate is from exploration work done in the early 1990’s and was not prepared using the resource categorizations set out in NI 43-101. No other drilling has been done since on the resource that remains open and has potential to continue to depth and along strike. The historical drill data has been digitized. Computer modeling of the drill holes will be used to define drill targets to expand existing mineralized zones on strike and at depth.
The foregoing geological disclosure has been reviewed by John Keating, P.Geo. (a qualified person for the purpose of National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects). Mr. Keating is the President, CEO and a Director of PJX.
