    Shares issued and outstanding: 374,718,877

    MONTREAL, Aug. 4 /CNW/ - KWG Resources Inc. (TSX-V: KWG) ("KWG" or the
"Company") announces a proposed non-brokered private placement (the "Private
Placement") of a maximum of $1,437,500 of units of securities of the Company
comprised of (a) up to 20,000,000 "flow-through" units (each, an "FT Unit") at
a price of $0.05 per FT Unit, with each FT Unit comprised of one common share
of KWG (each, a "Common Share") to be issued on a "flow-through" basis and one
Common Share purchase warrant (each, a "Warrant") exercisable at a price of
$0.10 per Warrant to acquire one Common Share for a period of 5 years from the
date of the issuance the Warrant (the "FT Offering"); and (b) up to 8,750,000
non-"flow-through" units (each, a "Unit") at a price of $0.05 per Unit, with
each Unit comprised of one Common Share and one Warrant (the "Unit Offering").
    The net proceeds of the proposed Private Placement will be used to
finance the exploration work on the Freewest Option in the Ring of Fire and
for working capital. The proceeds from the FT Offering will be used for
eligible flow-through exploration expenses and will be renounced for the 2009
taxation year. Two directors of the Company have indicated they will each
subscribe for 5 million FT Units with the balance of the FT Offering to be
subscribed by non-insiders of the Company. It is expected that the Unit
Offering will be subscribed by Cliffs Greene B.V. ("Cliffs"), an affiliate of
Cliffs Natural Resources Inc. (NYSX: CLF) (Paris: CLF), in order to maintain
its 19.9% equity interest in KWG following the Private Placement and KWG's
recent acquisition of a royalty interest. The expected participation of Cliffs
and the two directors in the Private Placement will constitute a "related
party transaction" under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 -Protection of
Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). However, the
Company expects that it will be exempt from both the formal valuation and
minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-601 in connection with the
Private Placement because neither the fair market value of the securities to
be issued, nor the consideration for such securities, is expected to exceed
25% of the Company's market capitalization as calculated in accordance with MI
    The Private Placement remains subject to the approval of the TSX Venture
