18 may 2009

African Queen Mines, which is exploring diamonds in Botswana and Namibia, says it was closing the second tranche of its previously announced non-brokered private placement which has raised gross proceeds of CAD441 810 (USD1=CAD1.17).
Together with the first tranche, previously announced, the company raised aggregate gross proceeds in this private placement of CAD1, 278 million, it said.
Under the terms of the private placement, the company had issued in the second tranche 1,472,700 units at CAD 0.30 per unit.
"We are very gratified by the strong investor response to African Queen's private placement, resulting in gross proceeds of CAD 1.278 million. The offering was oversubscribed, reflecting confidence in management's ability to execute its business plan for development of new exploratory resource projects. Company chief executive Irwin Olian said.
He said the firm was “working hard” to advance its regional gold project in Mozambique as well as our diamond projects in Botswana and Namibia.
The company licences in Botswana and Namibia comprise approximately 11,800 sq km of diamond prospects.
