CARUBE COPPER CORP CLOSES PRIVATE PLACEMENT

Carube Copper Corp. (CUC: TSXV) is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously announced private placement financing of 13,000,000 units (“Units”) @ $0.105 per Unit for gross proceeds of $1,365,000.

Each Unit is comprised of one common share in the capital of the company and one half of one common share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant is exercisable into one common share at a price of $0.15 per for a period of two years from the closing date. The proceeds will be used for exploration and general working capital purposes. The actual allocation of net proceeds may vary from the aforementioned uses depending on future operations, unforeseen events or opportunities.

The closing of the placement constituted a related party transaction within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 (“MI 61-101”) as certain insiders of the company subscribed for Units. The company is relying on the exemptions from the valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 contained in sections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of MI 61-101, as the fair market value of the participation in the offering by insiders does not exceed 25% of the market capitalization of the company, as determined in accordance with MI 61-101. The company did not file a material change report in respect of the related party transaction at least 21 days before the closing of the private placement, which the company deems reasonable in the circumstances in order to avail itself of the proceeds of the private placement in an expeditious manner.

Certain eligible persons (the “Finders”) were paid cash commissions totaling $72,379.40 which represents 6% of the proceeds raised from subscribers introduced to the company by such Finders and were also issued an aggregate of 689,328 unit broker warrants (“Broker Warrants”). Each Broker Warrant entitles the holder to acquire one Unit at a price of $0.105 for a period of two years from the closing date of the offering. The common shares, warrants and Broker Warrants are subject to a hold period of 4 months and a day following the closing.
