TORONTO, Sept. 12, 2012 /CNW/ - ("Treasury Metals" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with Canaccord Genuity Corp.

The net proceeds raised through the Offering will be for the advancement of the Company's assets and for general working capital purposes.
Closing of the Offering is anticipated to occur on or about September 21, 2012 (the "Closing Date").
