Wallbridge Announces Private Placement Financing



    TORONTO, Dec. 19 /CNW/ - Wallbridge Mining Company Limited (TSX:WM) is
pleased to announce its intention to proceed with a brokered private placement
of up to an aggregate of 4,000,000 units in the capital of the Company (the
"Units").
    A minimum of 2,000,000 Units will be placed through the facilities of
Mineralfields Group with a non-brokered private placement of up to an
aggregate of 2,000,000 Units, both subject to approval of the Toronto Stock
Exchange (the "TSX") (collectively, the "Offering").
    The private placement is for the combined aggregate proceeds of up to
CAD$1,600,000. The Units will be sold at $0.40 (Canadian) per Unit with each
Unit being comprised of one common share to be issued as a "flow-through
share" as defined in the Income Tax Act (Canada) (a "Flow-Through Unit Share")
and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each full common share
purchase warrant hereinafter referred to as a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will
entitle the holder thereof to purchase up to one additional common share of
the Company (each a "Warrant Share"), such Warrant Shares to be issued as
follows: (i) to the extent such Warrant is exercised during the first 12 month
period from the closing date (the "Closing Date"), one Warrant share at $0.80
(Canadian) per share, and (ii) to the extent such full Warrant is exercised
after the end of the first 12 month period from the Closing Date and on or
before the end of the second 12 month period from the Closing Date, one
Warrant Share at $1.00 (Canadian) per share. Only qualified Canadian residents
are eligible to subscribe for the Units in the capital of the Company.
    100% of the gross proceeds of the Units sold under the Flow-Through
Offering will be used for Canadian exploration expenses (within the meaning of
the Income Tax Act (Canada)) (the "Tax Act") which qualify as "flow-through
mining expenditures" for purposes of the Tax Act related to the Company's
exploration projects in Ontario, Canada. The Company will renounce such
Canadian exploration expenses with an effective date of no later than
December 31, 2007.
