Cap-Ex Provides Company Update and Announces Non-Brokered Private Placement
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/22/13 -- Cap-Ex
Iron Ore Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:CEV)(OTCQX:CPXVF)(FRANKFURT:XOV) ("Cap-Ex"
or the "Company") is pleased to announce that with the release of the
maiden resource and the metallurgical results on its Block 103 Iron
Ore Project in the Labrador Trough, the Company is now actively
seeking a strategic partner.
Key to the Company's efforts in searching for a strategic partner is
Mr. Mark Morabito, Special Advisor to the Chief Executive Officer of
Cap-Ex. Mr. Morabito was appointed to this role in June 2012 to
assist the Company in advancing the Block 103 Project. Mr. Morabito,
as Executive Chairman of Alderon Iron Ore Corp., was instrumental in
Alderon's signing of an Off-take and Partnership Agreement with Hebei
Iron and Steel Group ("Hebei") last year, culminating in last week's
announcement that Hebei had completed the remaining cash contribution
of its initial $182.2 million investment.
Francois Laurin, President and CEO of Cap-Ex, stated, "We have made
rapid progress, from completing a 22,300 metre drill program in 2012
to last month's announcement of a 7.2 billion tonne inferred iron
resource and positive metallurgical results. With Mark's success at
Alderon, and the recent closing of their Hebei transaction, now is
the time to leverage his expertise and experience to assist Cap-Ex in
taking the next step forward in securing a strategic partner."
The Block 103 Project hosts an initial NI 43-101 inferred resource
estimate of 7.2 billion tonnes at 29.2% total iron. Preliminary
metallurgical results indicate marketable pellet feed product.
Cap-Ex also announces that it is undertaking a non-brokered private
placement financing of up to 33,333,333 units (the "Units") at a
price of $0.15 per Unit for gross proceeds of up to $5.0 million (the
"Offering"). Each Unit will be comprised of one common share and one
common share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each whole Warrant will
entitle the holder to purchase one common share of the Company at an
exercise price of $0.20 for a period of 24 months from the date of
issue. Insiders will subscribe up to a maximum amount of $2.5
At any time after
four months and one day from the date of the
closing of the Offering, if the volume weighted average trading price
of the common shares of Cap-Ex on the TSX Venture Exchange is greater
than $0.50 per share for 20 consecutive trading days, Cap-Ex may give
written notice to warrant holders that the Warrants will expire 30
calendar days after the date of such notice.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering to
continue to advance its Block 103 Project with a 2013 drilling
program and to seek a strategic partner.
The offering remains subject to certain conditions including, but not
limited to, the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
The securities being offered hereby have not been, nor will they be,
registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as
amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United States or to,
or for the account or benefit of, U.S. persons absent registration or
an applicable exemption from the registration requirements. This
press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the
solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of the
securities in any state or province in which such offer, solicitation
or sale would be unlawful.

Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-looking Information
This press release contains "forward-looking information" within the
meaning of applicable Canadian securities legislation.
Forward-looking information includes, but is not limited to,
statements with respect to the development potential of the Company's
Block 103 iron ore property, future exploration plans and the
expected timing for completion of an NI 43-101 mineral resource
estimate and a preliminary economic assessment. Generally, forward-looking information can be identified by the use of forward-looking
terminology such as "plans", "expects" or "does not expect", "is
expected", "budget", "scheduled", "estimates", "forecasts",
"intends", "anticipates" or "does not anticipate", or "believes", or
variations of such words and phrases or state that certain actions,
events or results "may", "could", "would", "might" or "will be
taken", "occur" or "be achieved". Forward-looking information is
subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors
that may cause the actual results, level of activity, performance or
achievements of the Company to be materially different from those
expressed or implied by such forward-looking information. There can
be no assurance that such information will prove to be accurate, as
actual results and future events could differ materially from those
anticipated in such statements. Accordingly, readers should not place
undue reliance on forward-looking information. The Company does not
undertake to update any forward-looking information, except in
accordance with applicable securities laws.
Cautionary Note Concerning Reserve and Resource Estimates
This press release uses the terms "reserves", "resources", "proven
reserves", "probable reserves", "measured resources", "indicated
resources" and "inferred resources". United States investors are
advised that, while such terms are recognized and required by
Canadian securities laws, the United States Securities and Exchange
Commission (the "SEC") does not recognize them. Under United States
standards, mineralization may not be classified as a "reserve" unless
the determination has been made that the mineralization could be
economically and legally produced or extracted at the time the
reserve determination is made. Mineral resources that are not mineral
reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. United States
investors are cautioned not to assume that all or any part of
measured or indicated resources will ever be converted into reserves.
Inferred Resources are in addition to Measured and Indicated
Resources. Further, inferred resources have a great amount of
uncertainty as to their existence and as to whether they can be mined
legally or economically. It cannot be assumed that all or any part of
the inferred resources will ever be upgraded to a higher category.
Therefore, United States investors are also cautioned not to assume
that all or any part of the inferred resources exist, or that they
can be mined legally or economically. Disclosure of "contained
ounces" is permitted disclosure under Canadian regulations, however,
the SEC normally only permits issuers to report "resources" as in
place tonnage and grade without reference to unit measures.
Accordingly, information concerning descriptions of mineralization
and resources contained in this release may not be comparable to
information made public by United States companies subject to the
reporting and disclosure requirements of the SEC.
National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral
Projects ("NI 43-101") is a rule developed by the Canadian Securities
Administrators, which established standards for all public disclosure
an issuer makes of scientific and technical information concerning
mineral projects. Unless otherwise indicated, all reserve and
resource estimates referred to in this press release or released by
the Company in the future have been or will be prepared in accordance
with NI 43-101 and the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and
Petroleum Classification System. The requirements of NI 43-101 are
not the same as those of the SEC and any reserves reported by the
Company in compliance with NI 43-101 may not qualify as reserves
under the SEC's standards.
Neither TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider (as
that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange)
accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
