Aldridge Minerals Closes Previously Announced Non-Brokered Financing 
TORONTO, Feb. 22, 2013 /CNW/ - Aldridge Minerals Inc. (TSX Venture: AGM) 
("Aldridge" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has closed the 
non-brokered portion of its previously announced financing (the "Offering"). 
The Company issued a total of 9,534,737 common shares on a private placement 
basis at a price of $0.475 per common share and 222,463 special warrants to 
ANT Holding Anonim Sti ("ANT") for gross proceeds of approximately $4.5 
million. Each special warrant entitles the holder to purchase one common share 
of the Company at a price of $0.475 per common share for a period of 24 
months. ANT purchased the common shares and received the special warrants 
pursuant to the exercise of pre-emptive rights held by ANT that entitle it to 
maintain its pro rata interest in the Company in certain circumstances. By 
exercising its rights, ANT has maintained its ownership of 30.1% of the 
outstanding common shares of the Company. 
The net proceeds of the financing will be used to advance the exploration and 
development of the Company's Yenipazar property in central Turkey and for 
general working capital purposes. The Company may pay a finder's fee of up to 
$226,500 to an arm's length Turkish-based party. 
All securities issued under or in connection with the Offering are subject to 
a four month hold period expiring June 23, 2013. 
The securities offered have not been, nor will they be registered under the 
United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or state securities laws and 
were not offered or sold within the United States or to, or for the account or 
benefit of, U.S. persons absent U.S. federal and state registration or an 
applicable exemption from the U.S. registration requirements. This release 
does not constitute an offer for sale of securities in the United States.

10% NPI from there on.
