(“Beaufield” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has completed its previously announced brokered private placement (the “Offering”) by issuing 5,000,000 flow-through units (the “Units“) at a price of $0.40 per Unit (the “Offering Price“) for gross proceeds of $2,000,000.
Each Unit is comprised of one flow-through common share and one-half of a common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant“).

This property occupies a key central position adjacent to the town of Schefferville. Beaufield has agreed that expenditures incurred with proceeds will constitute Canadian exploration expense (“CEE”) (as defined in the Income Tax Act) and will be renounced to the subscribers.

In connection with the Offering, Industrial Alliance was paid a cash commission of $120,000 and was issued 250,000 compensation options entitling it to purchase, for a period of 12 months from the closing of the Offering, at the Offering Price, 250,000 additional common shares in Beaufied’s share capital.
All securities issued by Beaufield pursuant to the Offering are subject to a four-month hold period ending on July 3, 2012 under applicable securities laws. The Offering is subject to the final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
