Tamerlane closes flow-through unit financing

    BLAINE, WA, Sept. 16 /CNW/ - Tamerlane Ventures Inc. (TAM: TSX-V)
announces today that, subject to regulatory approval, the Company has closed a
non-brokered private placement of 2,877,778 Flow-Through Units at a
subscription price of C$0.45 per Flow-Through Unit for gross proceeds of
C$1,295,000. Each Unit comprised one Common Share and One-Half of One Common
Share Purchase Warrant. Each whole Common Share Purchase Warrant will entitle
the holder to purchase an additional Common Share at an exercise price of
C$0.60 per share for a period of 18 months. For introducing certain investors
to the Company, the Company paid a 7% cash finder's fee and issued broker
warrants equal to 5% of the number of Units issued to those investors. Each
warrant will be exercisable into one Common Share at a price of C$0.60 per
share for a period of 18 months.
    This financing was previously announced on August 19, 2008 when it was
anticipated that the Company would raise up to $2.03 million. Due to market
conditions the financing for the anticipated amount was not completed.
    All of the securities issued in this private placement will be subject to
a four-month hold period.
    The proceeds from the Flow-Through Unit Offering will be used to fund
additional surface drilling at the Company's Pine Point Zinc-Lead Project in
the Northwest Territories.
