Extract Resources Announces $30.5M Capital Raising

    SOUTH PERTH, Western Australia, June 13 /CNW/ - Extract Resources
("Extract" or "the Company"), (TSX / ASX :EXT), a Uranium exploration company
with projects in Namibia, Africa, today announced that a placement to
institutional investors has been committed to raise a total of A$30.5M from
the issue of 27.75M fully paid ordinary shares at a price of A$1.10 per share.
    The placement has been facilitated jointly through BBY Limited and
Patersons Securities in Australia and Haywood Securities in the UK.
    Funds from the placement will enable the acceleration of the exploration
and development activities in Namibia and are expected to be sufficient to
move to Definitive Feasibility Study phases for both the Ida Dome and Rossing
South projects, once initial resource estimates are generated.
    Peter McIntyre, Managing Director of Extract Resources, said today "We
are delighted to welcome some new high quality institutional investors to our
register." Mr McIntyre further added, "The Company continues to develop the
potential of its projects and has now secured sufficient funding to further
advance them. I anticipate that the next 6 to 12 months will be a period of
significant expansion in our resource potential."
