    TORONTO, June 7 /CNW/ - Roxmark Mines Limited (TSXV - RMK) (CNQ - RMKL)
today announced that it has entered into an agreement for a non-brokered
private placement financing with MineralFields Group of Toronto, a leading
mining fund, subject to final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
    The $1 million private placement consists of the sale of 3,773,584
flow-through units of the Company at $0.265 each. Each unit will consist of
one flow-through common share and one common share purchase warrant of the
Company. Each warrant entitles the holder to purchase one common share of the

will be subject to certain resale restrictions which require that the

    Roxmark has agreed to pay a cash finder's fee to First Canadian
Securities(R) of 5% of the proceeds raised and options equal to 10% of units
subscribed for, at an exercise price of $0.265 for a term of two years.
    Proceeds of the private placement will be used to fund the exploration
and development program to advance Roxmark's holdings of gold and molybdenum
properties in the Geraldton-Beardmore mining camp in Northern Ontario.

    About Roxmark Mines

    Roxmark Mines Limited is the leader in gold and molybdenum exploration
and development in the historically significant Geraldton-Beardmore area of
Northwest Ontario. In the last two years, Roxmark has generated cash flow from
bulk-sampled gold and molybdenum processed at its fully-permitted mill and has
the advantage of infrastructure from six formerly highly productive gold mines
located on its properties. These mines previously produced nearly two million
ounces of gold from high grade ore but were closed primarily due to
dramatically lower gold prices at the time and to boundary issues, since
eliminated.
