CALGARY, June 14, 2012 /CNW/ - 3MV Energy Corp. ("3MV" or the "Company") (TSXV: TMV) is pleased to
announce that it has agreed to engage Cornerstone Asset Management L.P.
as its exclusive agent (the "Agent") in connection with a proposed
brokered equity private placement (the "Brokered Private Placement") of
approximately $5 million which may include flow-through shares. 3MV
proposes to concurrently offer a minimum $5 million non-brokered
private placement (the "Non-Brokered Private Placement" and together
with the Brokered Private Placement, the "Offering"). The Agent will be
granted a 15% over allocation which will be calculated on the combined
Offering. Final terms and pricing will occur prior to the closing of
the Brokered Private Placement.
3MV shall pay the Agent an agency fee equal to 7% of the gross proceeds
of the Brokered Private Placement, payable in cash on closing, plus 7%
broker warrants having a term of 24 months. 3MV has also agreed to pay
the Agent a work fee in the amount of $7,500 per month, payable upon
the closing of the Brokered Private Placement and shall reimburse the
Agent for its expenses.
Closing of the Offering is subject to receipt of all necessary
regulatory approval. Securities issued by 3MV pursuant to the Offering
will be subject to a hold period of four months from the closing of the

3MV is an oil and gas exploration and development company with assets
throughout west central Saskatchewan's Viking oil play, including its
most recent discovery and oil pool development near Fiske, which is
located 60 kilometers east of Kindersley, SK. 3MV intends to focus its
drilling and production efforts on its Fiske light oil discovery. With
36 net sections of land subject to a farmout agreement (of which the
Company has earned and participated in 2.65 net sections) and another
section (crown lease) owned by 3MV Energy, and a recent 19.9 km² 3D
seismic program, 3MV has identified and licensed 20 future drilling
locations, eight of which the Company considers to be infill locations.
The Company's recent success in the play, with three wells producing
over 100 boe/d during the first 30 days of production, has led to
significant reserves additions in the area. 3MV intends to build off
that momentum as quickly as is practicable with additional capital
raised in the upcoming periods.

Oil and Gas Disclosure
For the purpose of calculating unit costs, natural gas volumes have been
converted to a barrel of oil equivalent ("BOE") using six thousand
cubic feet equal to one barrel unless otherwise stated. A BOE
conversion ratio of 6:1 is based upon an energy equivalency conversion
method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a
value equivalency at the wellhead. BOEs may be misleading, particularly
if used in isolation.
