VANCOUVER, Sept. 22, 2011 /CNW/ - Cosigo Resources Ltd. (TSXV: CSG) today announced the closing of a non-brokered private placement of 1,008,366 units at a price of $US0.50 per unit, for total gross proceeds of $US504,183.

"Colombian and Brazilian investors have oversubscribed to this non-brokered private placement.

"We are delighted by their show of confidence."

Each of the units consists of one common share and one common share purchase warrant. Each warrant will entitle the holder to acquire, for a period of two years, one additional common share of the Company at a price of US$1.00 during the first year following the closing of the private placement and US$1.25 during the second year. All securities issued in the private placement will be subject to a four-month hold period expiring January 23, 2012.
