Solex Resources Announce Further Extension to Non-brokered Private Placement Closing

    VANCOUVER, Aug. 20 /CNW/ - Solex Resources Corp. (TSX-V: SOX) ("Solex" or
the "Company") today announced that the previously announced offering of up to
15,000,000 units ("Units") on a private placement basis at a price of $0.15
per Unit to raise gross proceeds of $2,250,000 ("the Offering") which was due
to close on August 20, 2009 will be extended. The Company has initiated a
process to consider and respond to various strategic opportunities which may
be available to the Company. The review was precipitated by the receipt of an
unsolicited third party offer to subscribe for the full amount of the
placement with the intention to negotiate a business combination of the two
parties. The Board of Directors of Solex Resources has formed a Special
Committee of independent directors to review and consider this offer and
alternative ways of maximising value for the shareholders. The Company
emphasized that there can be no assurance that any transaction or other
alternative will ultimately be completed.
