VANCOUVER, June 3 /CNW/ - Lincoln Mining Corporation, TSX-V: LMG ("Lincoln" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has closed the previously announced private placement.
The Company issued a total of 12,045,395 units at a price of $0.22 per unit ("Units") for total proceeds of $2.65 million in connection with the brokered private placement, under which Casimir Capital LP acted as agent with Bolder Investment Partners Ltd. involved as a significant member of the agent's selling group. Each Unit is comprised of one common share of the Company and one half of one non-transferable common share purchase warrant.

Concurrent with the brokered private placement, the Company also closed a non-brokered private placement of 6,088,454 Units at the same price and having the same terms as the Units under the brokered private placement, for total proceeds of $1.33 million.
As compensation, the agent's selling group in the brokered private placement, and certain finders involved in the non-brokered private placement received an aggregate (i) cash commission of 7% of the total proceeds raised and (ii) non-transferable warrants ("Broker Warrants") to acquire common shares of the Company equal to 7% of the total number of Units sold. Each such warrant will entitle the holder to acquire one common share of the Company at a price of $0.35 per share until June 1, 2012. At the closing of the private placement, the Company issued a total of 1,142,415 Broker Warrants and paid a total of $251,269.28 in cash commissions.
All securities issued under the private placement will be subject to a four month hold period in Canada expiring on October 2, 2010, in addition to such other restrictions as may apply under applicable securities laws of jurisdictions outside Canada.
