TORONTO, Jan. 4, 2012 /CNW/ - Hudson River Minerals Ltd. ("Hudson River" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that on December 30, 2011 it closed a non-brokered private placement of units issued on a flow-through basis ("Flow-Through Units") at a price of $0.08 (Canadian) per Flow-Through Unit for gross proceeds of CND$155,000 with 1,937,500 Flow-Through Units being issued.

Each Flow-Through Unit sold under the Offering consists of one common share in the capital of the Company issued as a "flow-through share" (a "Flow-Through Share") and one-half of one non-flow-through non-transferrable common share purchase warrant (a "Flow-Through Unit Warrant"). Each whole Flow-Through Unit Warrant is exercisable into one common share of the Company at an exercise price of $0.16 (Canadian) per share to the extent such Flow-Through Unit Warrant is exercised in whole or in part at any time prior to 5:00 p.m. (Toronto time) on December 30, 2013. The hold period for the Flow-Through Shares expires on May 1, 2012.

Each Hard Unit sold under the Offering consists of one common share in the capital of the Company issued on a non-flow-through basis (the "Hard Unit Shares") and one-half of one non-flow-through non-transferrable common share purchase warrant (a "Hard Unit Warrant"). Each whole Hard Unit Warrant is exercisable into one common share of the Company at an exercise price of $0.15 (Canadian) per share to the extent such Hard Unit Warrant is exercised in whole or in part at any time prior to 5:00 p.m. (Toronto time) on December 30, 2013. The hold period for the Hard Unit Shares expires on May 1, 2012.

Finders used to source subscribers were paid a commission of 7% of the total gross proceeds, payable in cash for a total commission of CDN$11,375, and 7% payable as compensation options (the "Finder Warrants") for a total of 148,125 Finder Warrants. The Finder Warrants are exercisable into one common share of the Company at an exercise price of $0.15 (Canadian) per share to the extent such Finder Warrant is exercised in whole or in part at any time prior to 5:00 p.m. (Toronto time) on December 30, 2013.

The proceeds from this financing will be used to advance Hudson River's exploration projects in Ontario, primarily the Forge Lake project, and for general corporate expenses.
