TORONTO, Aug. 23 /CNW/ - Largo Resources Ltd. (TSXV: LGO) ("Largo" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has filed a preliminary short form prospectus in connection with a proposed offering (the "Offering") of up to a maximum of 27,941,175 units (the "Units"), at a price of Cdn$0.17 per Unit (the "Offering Price"), for gross proceeds of up to Cdn$4,750,000. Up to 17,647,058 Units (the "Brokered Offering') will be offered and sold on a best-efforts basis pursuant to an agency agreement to be entered into between the Company and Byron Securities Limited and Cormark Securities Inc. (the "Agents"). Up to 10,294,117 Units may be sold directly by the Company to certain current shareholders of the Company. The Offering is subject to a minimum of Cdn$1,200,000 being raised.

Each Unit is comprised of one common share of the Company and one common share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one common share of the Company at a price of $0.25 at any time prior to 5:00 p.m. (Toronto time) on the date that is 12 months following the closing date of the Offering.

In addition, the Company has agreed to grant the Agents an option (the "Over-Allotment Option") to arrange for the purchase of up to an additional 2,647,058 Units (representing 15% of the maximum Brokered Offering) on the same terms and conditions as under the Brokered Offering, exercisable any time, in whole or in part, up to 48 hours prior to the closing of the Offering. If the Over-Allotment Option is exercised in full, the total gross proceeds to Largo will be Cdn$5,200,000.

The net proceeds raised pursuant to the Offering will be used principally to further develop the Maracas Project by advancing the licensing process and furthering construction activities.

The Offering is expected to close on or about September 2, 2010 and is subject to certain conditions, including but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

For their services in connection with the Offering, the Agents will receive a cash commission equal to 7% of the gross proceeds of the Brokered Offering and broker warrants (the "Broker Warrants") exercisable to acquire that number of Units equal to 7% of the number of Units sold pursuant to the Brokered Offering. Each Broker Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one Unit at the Offering Price at any time prior to 5:00 p.m. (Toronto time) on the date that is 12 months following the closing date of the Offering.
