Campbell Resources Announces Closing Of Equity Financing For Corner Bay Project



    MONTREAL, April 23 /CNW Telbec/ - Campbell Resources Inc. (the
"Corporation") (TSX: CCH, OTC Bulletin Board:   CBLRF) announces the closing of
a brokered private placement of 56,000,000 flow-through common shares for
proceeds of $7,000,000 with a syndicate of agents lead by Cormark Securities
Inc. and including Dundee Securities Corporation and Octagon Capital
Corporation (collectively, the "Agents").
    As consideration for acting as Agents, the Corporation has paid a cash
commission of $420,000. In addition, the Agents received 3,360,000 broker
warrants. Each broker warrant entitles its holder thereof to purchase one
common share in the capital of the Corporation at a price of $0.13 for a
period of 18 months from the closing date of the private placement.
    The proceeds of the brokered private placement will be used for continued
exploration on the Corporation's Corner Bay project. Work on the 725 metre
ramp will begin before the end of the month of April and it is expected that
the mineralized zone will be reached at the beginning of the fourth quarter.
    The Corner Bay project is located some 45 kilometers from Campbell's
Copper Rand mill. Measured and indicated resources stand at 446,000 tonnes
averaging 5.58% Cu. Inferred resources total 1,441,000 tonnes averaging 6.76%
Cu (Ref.: GEOSTAT Technical Report, July 2006, available on SEDAR at
www.sedar.com). Following the extraction of the 42,000 tonnes bulk sample, the
Corporation plans to mine some 500,000 tonnes of ore grading 4.5% Cu over the
next 4 years. Exploration at depth will also be carried out to confirm and add
to the resources already identified.

    Campbell is a mining company focusing mainly in the Chibougamau region of
Québec, holding interests in gold and gold-copper exploration and mining
properties.
