VANCOUVER, Oct. 6 /CNW/ - Golden Peaks Resources Ltd. (TSX: GL) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has negotiated a commercially reasonable efforts private placement with Canaccord Capital Corporation (the "Agent") for up to 4,000,000 units (the "Units") at a price of $0.51 per Unit for gross proceeds of up to $2,040,000 (the "Offering").

Each Unit will consist of one common share of the Company (a "Common Share") and one Common Share purchase warrant (a "Warrant").

Closing of the Offering is anticipated to occur on or before October 28, 2009 and is subject to the receipt of all necessary corporate and regulatory approvals including approval of the TSX. All securities issued in connection with the Offering will be subject to a statutory hold period of four months plus one day from the date of issuance, in accordance with applicable securities legislation.

The funds raised from the issuance of the Units will be used for general exploration expenditures on its La Fortuna and Golden Cateo properties in Argentina and for general working capital purposes.
