Petro Horizon Announces Private Placement


VANCOUVER, July 28 /CNW/ - PETRO HORIZON ENERGY CORP. (TSXV.PHE), announces that it is proceeding with a non-brokered private placement of up to 1,750,000 flow-through units in the capital stock at $0.20 per unit for total gross proceeds of $350,000. Each flow-through unit will consist of one common flow-through share and one 1/2 share purchase warrant. Each full share purchase warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one additional share of the Company at a price of $0.35 per share for a period of up to eighteen months from the closing date of the private placement.

The shares are subject to a four month hold period. This private placement is subject to approval by the TSX Venture Exchange.

The proceeds of this financing will be used to finance the 2010 work program on the Brazil Lake Lithium Rare Metals Project.

About Brazil Lake Lithium Rare Metals Project

The 3,160 acre property is located approximately 30 kilometres north of Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, and 12 kilometres west of the Avalon Rare Metals (AVL) East Kemptville Project. Although the Property has yet to be diligently explored by the company, drilling to date has successfully revealed two Lithium bearing pegmatite dikes. In addition to Lithium, the dikes host several other rare metals such as tantalum, niobium, beryllium, tungsten tin and rubidium. Metallurgical bench testing to date has also revealed other potential economic targets, including cosmetic grade mica, silica chloride, aluminum chloride and rubidium enriched potassium feldspar.

The two identified lithium and rare metal bearing pegmatite dikes that appear at the surface have been defined by drilling as being up to 20 meters wide and having exposed lengths of up to 300 meters. The deepest drill hole intersected the dikes at 50 meters depth. Both pegmatites remain open at depth and future drilling in the upcoming work program will attempt to extend the depth of the dikes to a minimum of 100 meters.

The signature dispersal train of pegmatite boulders identifying the currently drilled pegmatites will assist in identifying three other boulder fields indicating potential pegmatite targets. Geochemical surveys have assisted in the identification of these additional targets. It is well known that pegmatites occur in swarms, and therefore the company plans to carry out a detailed prospecting program to source other potential targets, in addition to the drilling program on the two currently established dikes.

The Lithium on the property is hosted by the mineral spodumene which makes up approximately 14 to 20% of the pegmatites. The lithium oxide (Li(2)O) content in the spodumene is approximately 7.4% to 7.7%.
