PanTerra Announces Brokered Private Placement for Cardium Drilling

TSX-V: PRC

CALGARY, Jan. 28 /CNW/ - PanTerra Resource Corp. ("PanTerra" or the "Corporation") is pleased to announce that it has engaged Byron Capital Markets (the "Agent") in connection with a proposed private placement, on a commercially reasonable efforts basis, of up to 3,333,333 units (the "Units") at a price of $0.45 per Unit and up to 4,545,454 common shares to be issued on a "flow-through" basis at a price of $0.55 per share (the "Flow-Through Shares") for total gross proceeds of up to $4,000,000 (the "Offering").

Each Unit will consist of one (1) common share (a "Common Share") in the capital of the Corporation and one half of one (1/2) common share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each whole Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one Common Share of the Corporation at an exercise price of $0.60 for a period of eighteen (18) months from the closing of the Offering.

The proceeds of the Offering will be mainly used for drilling and development activities on the Corporation's 100% held Cardium properties located at Carrot Creek, Alberta and for drilling and development activities on the Corporation's other properties at Tomahawk and Gadsby, as well as for general working capital. While the Corporation anticipates that it will spend the funds available to it as set forth above, there may be circumstances where, for sound business reasons, a reallocation of the net proceeds may be necessary.

The Offering is subject to receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals. The securities issued pursuant to the Offering will be subject to a 4 month hold period in Canada from the date of the closing of the Offering. The Offering is expected to close on or about February 19, 2010.

The Agent will receive a commission of 7% of the gross proceeds of the Offering payable in cash, and the Agent will be granted a number of non-transferable Agent's options (the "Agent's Option") equal to an aggregate of 7% of the total number of Units and Flow-Through Shares sold pursuant to the Offering. Each Agent's Option will entitle the holder thereof to acquire one Unit or Common Share, as the case may be, on the same terms as the Offering for a period of eighteen (18) months from the date of the closing of the Offering.
