/NOT FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES. FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH THIS RESTRICTION MAY CONSTITUE A VIOLATION OF UNITED STATES SECURITIES LAW/
CALGARY, Nov. 21, 2012 /CNW/ - First Mountain Exploration Ltd. ("First Mountain" or the "Company") (TSX Venture: FMX) announces that it intends to make application to the TSX Venture Exchange to obtain their approval to reprice 3,093,500 common share purchase warrants ("Warrants"). The Warrants were initially issued on December 23, 2011 as part of a brokered private placement of 6,186,000 units, where each unit consisted of one common share and one half of one Warrant. The Warrants were initially issued with an exercise price of $0.65 per share and have an expiry date of June 23, 2013.
Subject to the consent of all holders of Warrants and the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange, the exercise price of the Warrants shall be reduced from $0.65 to $0.20. The expiry date of the Warrant will remain until June 23, 2013, however the exercise term of the Warrants will be shortened to 30 days if, for a period of 10 consecutive trading days, the closing price of the Company's shares on the TSX Venture Exchange exceeds $0.20. The Company will issue a press release notifying the holders of Warrants if the exercise term is shortened.
Neither the TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider (as that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
