October 21 2005 – Purepoint Uranium Group Inc. (TSX-V:PTU) is pleased to announce a $4 million private placement of Units with Blackmont Capital Inc. and CIBC World Markets Inc. (the “Agents”). Each Unit will be priced at $0.40 per Unit and will consist of one flow-through common share and one half of one common share purchase warrant. Each full warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one common share at $0.50 per share for a period of one year from the closing date.
Purepoint has granted the Agents an option exercisable at any time up to 48 hours prior to closing to increase the size of the offering to $5.5 million. The offering is expected to close on or about November 7, 2005.
Gross proceeds of the offering will be spent on the Company’s properties in the Athabasca Basin. This winter’s advanced program on the Turnor Lake and Red Willow projects will be one of the few drill programs this season carried out by a junior explorer in the Basin. In addition, this financing will allow Purepoint to advance its remaining 5 properties in preparation for drilling during the 2006-2007 session.
Completion of the private placement is subject to certain conditions, including satisfactory due diligence by the Agents and receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals. The Agents will receive a cash fee equal to 8% of the gross proceeds raised from the offering, as well as broker’s warrants, exercisable for a period of 24 months, to purchase a number of common shares equal to 10% of the number of flow-through common shares issued in the offering.
