Fieldex announces private placement of up to $2 million

ROUYN-NORANDA, QC, Sept. 30 /CNW Telbec/ - Fieldex Exploration Inc. (FLX:TSXV AND F7E:FRANKFURT) announces that it intends to effect a non-brokered private placement in a maximum amount of $2 million by issuing a maximum of 11,111,111 units at a price of $0.18 per unit. Each unit will be comprised of one common share and one-half of a common share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant will entitle the holder to acquire one additional common share of Fieldex at a price of $0.23 for a period of two years following the closing of the private placement.

The units will be sold to "accredited investors" in Canada and elsewhere on a prospectus-exempt basis. Subject to regulatory approval, closing of the private placement is expected to occur on or about October 12, 2009.

The proceeds from the private placement will be used for exploration on Fieldex's Lac Sairs' heavy rare earth elements' property and for working capital purposes.

In connection with the private placement, Fieldex will pay finders' fees in a maximum amount equal to 8% of the gross proceeds raised under the private placement. In addition, Fieldex will issue non-transferable "finders' warrants" to the various finders, entitling them to purchase, at a price of $0.18 per unit, a number of units equal to 10% of the number of units sold in the private placement. The units issued on the exercise of the "finders' warrants" will be identical to those issued in the private placement. The "finders' warrants" may be exercised for two years from the closing of the private placement.

There are currently 46,810,907 common shares of Fieldex issued and outstanding. The shares and warrants to be issued in the private placements will be subject to a four-month "hold period" under applicable securities legislation.
