China Nonferrous Metals Exploration Corp. acquires a 14.95% interest in Murgor Resources through an $810,000 private placement

    -  Murgor issues 8,100,000 shares at a price of $0.10 per share

    KINGSTON, ON, Aug. 31 /CNW Telbec/ - Murgor Resources Inc. (MGR: TSX-V)
has completed its previously-announced private placement to China Nonferrous
Metals Exploration Corp. ("CNME") by issuing 8,100,000 common shares to CNME
at a price of $0.10 per share, for proceeds to Murgor of $810,000. As a result
of the private placement, CNME now holds a 14.95% interest in Murgor
    "We are very pleased with this investment by CNME", stated André Tessier,
President and CEO of Murgor. "This is more than a simple investment, this is a
new partnership with CNME from which Murgor should greatly benefit in the
future. We are thrilled that CNME recognizes the value of Murgor's copper-gold
and zinc deposits in Canada's Flin Flon belt. We will explore ways to move
these projects to the development stage as quickly as possible after Murgor
makes its final payments to Hudbay Minerals Inc. for the Hudvam and Wim
deposits on September 12, 2009."
    "We are pleased to be making this initial investment in Murgor
Resources", said Mr. Nick Zeng, a CNME director, China Mining Investment
Expert and Executive Director of the China Mining Association of Canada. "This
is CNME's first investment in a Canadian public company and we feel that
Murgor's advanced Wim and Hudvam deposits, along with its significant
prospective land package, represent great development and exploration
opportunities. We look forward to continuing to build our relationship with
    Murgor will use the proceeds from the private placement primarily for
working capital and corporate purposes.
    The Subscription Agreement between Murgor and CNME provides that in the
event that Murgor in future issues any common shares or securities convertible
into common shares, CNME has the right, subject to limited exceptions, to
purchase such securities on a pro rata basis, so that CNME may maintain its
14.95% interest in Murgor. Murgor and CNME have also entered into a Board
Representation Agreement under which CNME has the right to designate a person
to serve on Murgor's Board of Directors. Murgor expects that CNME will shortly
designate a person to serve on Murgor's Board. Any person designated by CNME
must be acceptable to Murgor, acting reasonably. CNME's right to subscribe for
shares and its right to designate a person to sit on Murgor's Board will
terminate if CNME holds less than 5% of Murgor's outstanding shares.
    In connection with the private placement, Murgor also issued 486,000
common shares to one individual as a finder's fee. As a result of the private
placement and finder's fee, there are 54,168,782 common shares of Murgor
issued and outstanding. The shares issued to CNME and as a finder's fee are
subject to restrictions on resale until January 1, 2010.
