Vancouver, BC -- September 16, 2009: Jason Weber, P.Geo., President and CEO of Kiska Metals Corporation ("Kiska") is pleased to announce that Kiska has closed the brokered private placement of 9,000,000 units at $0.55 for gross proceeds of $4,950,000 announced on August 26, 2009. The financing was completed through a syndicate of agents comprised of Haywood Securities Inc. and Research Capital Corporation.
Each unit consisted of one common share and one half of one non-transferable share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant entitles the holder to purchase one common share at a price of $0.80 per share until March 16, 2011. The terms of the warrants provide that if, during the term of any unexercised warrant commencing on January 17, 2010, the closing price of the common shares of the Company on any exchange is greater than $1.10 for a period of 20 consecutive trading days the Company may, at its option and by notice in writing to each holder, require the holder of the warrant to exercise such warrant within 30 days, failing which the warrant will be deemed to have expired. The units issued under the offering are subject to a four-month hold period expiring on January 17, 2010.
A cash commission of 6% of the total gross proceeds realized from the placement was payable in cash together with 540,000 agent's warrants, equal to 6% of the number of units placed. Each agent's warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one common share at a price of $0.80 per share until March 16, 2011
The proceeds from the private placement financing will be used for exploration of the Company's Whistler Project in Alaska and for general corporate purposes.
