    TORONTO, April 28 /CNW/ - Wallbridge Mining Company Limited (TSX:WM, FWB:
WC7) (the "Corporation") announced that it intends to complete a non-brokered
private placement for an aggregate of 7,500,000 units in the capital of the
Corporation (the "Units") at $0.10 (Canadian) per Unit raising aggregate
proceeds of $750,000 (the "Offering").
    The Units will be sold at $0.10 (Canadian) per Unit with each Unit being
comprised of one common share and one-half of one common share purchase
warrant. Each whole warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one
additional common share of the Corporation at an exercise price of $0.20

pay a finder's fee of up to 7% of the gross proceeds.
    Commenting on the proposed placement Alar Soever, President of Wallbridge

size of placements to our immediate needs in order to minimize dilution, while
still maintaining an active exploration program, during this period of
relatively low valuations in the junior mining sector."
