St. Eugene closes non-brokered $189,300 private placement



    VANCOUVER, Oct. 18 /CNW/ - (TSX.V: SEM) Rolly Trenaman, President
announces the Company's non-brokered private placement of flow-through units
reported in our news release of October 9, 2007 has been approved by the TSX
Venture Exchange and has closed.
    A total of 1.578 million flow-through units were sold resulting in gross
proceeds to the company of $189,360. Each unit consists of one common share of
the company and one-half of one non-transferable common share purchase
warrant. Each full warrant will be exercisable to acquire one additional share
for a period of 12 months from closing date. These warrants will expire on
October 15, 2008. A finder's fee of 118,350 common shares of the Company and
157,800 agent's warrants exercisable at 15 cents for a period of 12 months
from date of closing of the private placement will be paid. The agent's
warrants will expire on October 15, 2008. These securities shall be subject to
a hold period of four months and can not be traded until February 16, 2007.
    The gross proceeds from the flow-through financing will be used to drill
a further approximately 850 metres in four holes at the Company's Moyie
zinc/silver/lead project, 20 kms south of Cranbrook, BC. Information from
these holes will allow to the Company to make a decision on underground
development, the next logical step in defining the magnitude of the
zinc/lead/silver mineralized zones identified in two earlier drill campaigns
on Company's Society Girl target.
    The Moyie Project is located in an historic metal mining district, which
stretches from Idaho's Coeur d'Alene silver/lead mining camp to BC's
150-million-ton Sullivan zinc/silver/lead mine. Zinc/silver/lead ores have
been continuously produced from this area for more than 110 years. From
1900-1911, the St. Eugene Mines reportedly produced approximately 1.4 million
tons of ore grading 5% zinc, 15% lead and 7 opt silver from three main ore
shoots - Lakeshore, Moyie and St. Eugene.
