The Company also announces that it has completed its previously announced brokered private placement equity financing (the "Brokered Financing") (reference is made to the Company's July 18, 2011 press release). Under the Brokered Financing, which was conducted by a Canadian securities dealer (the "Agent") as agent, the Company has issued 2,163,000 units of the Company at a price of Cdn$1.00 per unit for total gross proceeds of Cdn$2,163,000. Each such unit consists of one common share of the Company and one-half of one warrant of the Company, with each full warrant entitling the holder to purchase one common share of the Company at a price of Cdn$1.25 for a period of one year from the date of issuance of the warrant.

In consideration for its services, the Company paid to the Agent a cash fee equal to 8% of the gross proceeds of the Brokered Financing, and granted to the Agent compensation options (the "Compensation Options") equal to 8% of the number of units sold under the Brokered Financing. Each Compensation Option entitles the holder to purchase one common share of the Company at a price of Cdn$1.00 for a period of two years from the date of issuance of the Compensation Option.

The Company has also completed a non-brokered private placement equity financing (the "Non-Brokered Financing"), pursuant to which the Company issued 1,222,500 units of the Company at a price of Cdn$1.00 per unit for total gross proceeds of Cdn$1,222,500.  Each such unit consists of one common share of the Company and one warrant of the Company, with each such warrant entitling the holder to purchase one-half of one common share of the Company for a period of one year from the date of issuance of the warrant, provided that a minimum of two such warrants must be exercised by the holder thereof at any one time in order that any such exercise thereof will result in the purchase of one common share of the Company at a price of Cdn$1.25.

The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the Brokered Financing and the Non-Brokered Financing for exploration and development activities related to the Company's mineral properties in Oman and for working capital and general corporate purposes.
