Liberty Lake, Washington, June 14, 2011 - Hunt Mining Corp. ("Hunt Mining" or "the Company") (TSX-V: HMX) is pleased to announce that it has completed its previously announced bought deal private placement with Macquarie Capital Markets Canada Ltd. ("Macquarie"). The Company has issued 25,645,000 units of the Company (the "Units") at an issue price of $0.45 per Unit (the "Unit Price"), including the full exercise of the underwriter's option granted to Macquarie, for aggregate gross proceeds of $11,540,250 (the "Offering").
Each Unit is comprised of one common share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant of the Company (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one additional common share of the Company at a price of $0.65 per common share for a period of 24 months from the closing date.
The Units issued in connection with the Offering are subject to a four month and one day statutory hold period pursuant to applicable securities legislation, which expires on October 15, 2011.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the Offering for exploration and development work at the Company's properties in the Deseado Massif precious metal region of Santa Cruz, Argentina, and for general working capital and corporate purposes.
Macquarie received a cash commission of 7.0% of the gross proceeds raised in the Offering and also received compensation options (the "Compensation Options") equal to 7.0% of that number of Units issued in connection with the Offering (including upon exercise of the underwriter's option). Each Compensation Option is exercisable to acquire one Unit on the same terms as the Offering for a period of 24 months from the closing date at an exercise price equal to the Unit Price.
The TSX Venture Exchange has conditionally approved the listing of the common shares forming part of the Units, as well as the common shares issuable upon exercise of the Warrants.
