AXMIN Enters Into Subscription Agreement With Dickson Resources Limited

AXMIN Enters Into Subscription Agreement With Dickson Resources Limited 
TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 03/25/13 -- AXMIN Inc. (TSX
VENTURE:AXM) ("AXMIN" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that
it has entered into a binding subscription agreement (the
"Agreement") with Dickson Resources Limited ("Dickson"), whereby
AXMIN is proceeding with a private placement to raise aggregate gross
proceeds of approximately C$6.75 million by way of a two stage
private placement (the "Offering"). The Company will issue an
aggregate of 45,000,000 common shares of the Company (the "Offered
Shares") at a price of C$0.15 per Offered Share. The first tranche of
the Offering will consist of 15,800,000 Offered Shares for gross
proceeds of approximately C$2.37 million on terms set out below. This
represents a 25% premium on AXMIN's current share price. The
remaining C$4.38 million (the "Escrow Amount") will be placed in
escrow by Dickson. 
If the conditions set out in the Agreement are satisfied on or before
June 7, 2013 (the "Outside Date") the second tranche of the Offering
will close and the Escrow Amount will be unconditionally released to
the Company. If the conditions are not satisfied on or before the
Outside Date, the Escrow Amount will be returned to Dickson and the
Agreement will be terminated. 
Closing of the initial stage of the Offering is subject to a number
of conditions, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
Closing of the second tranche, which includes the issuance of the
remaining 29,200,000 Offered Shares, requires the requisite
shareholder approval of 50.1% of the votes cast at a Special Meeting
of Shareholders (the "Meeting") to be held on or before the Outside
Date. An information circular regarding the Offering will be filed
with securities regulators and mailed to the Company's shareholders
prior to the Meeting and in accordance with applicable securities
laws. 
As per terms of the Agreement, AXMIN has agreed to procure lock-up
agreements from George Roach, President, CEO and Director, David de
Jongh Weill, Chairman and Director and from AOG Holdings BV. Assuming
AXMIN's shareholders approve the transaction at the Meeting and all
regulatory approvals are obtained, the final stage of the transaction
is expected to close in the second quarter of 2013. Pursuant to the
transaction, AXMIN has agreed to effect a change of board following
the Meeting at which Dickson will have nominees on the Board
representing a majority of board members. In order for the Company's
Board to meet Canadian residency requirements under the Canada
Business Corporations Act, Director, Ozge Erdem has agreed to step
down as a director effective March 23, 2013. AXMIN's Board would like
to thank Ms. Erdem for her guidance and contribution during her term
and wish Ozge all the best with her future endeavours. 
President and CEO of AXMIN, Mr. George Roach, comments, "We are
pleased that following months of rigorous negotiations the Company
has successfully brought to the table a major investor who has both
the financial resources and extensive international mining expertise
to ensure that the Passendro Gold mine is developed. This mutually
beneficial transaction offers Dickson exposure to a robust
near-production gold project with exceptional exploration upside and
gives AXMIN the stability it needs during the debt lenders final due
diligence process. 
"As much as I look forward to working with the Dickson team and the
new combined board of directors, I further welcome the reassurance
from a CAR Government Spokesperson that the Company's tenements,
licenses and agreements are valid and will be respected by the new
Government, and that the Government remains committed to facilitating
a stable environment as quickly as possible to allow AXMIN to proceed
to completion of the debt finance arrangements that are on hold
during the current Force Majeure. I feel it opportune to remind our
Shareholders that in our opinion, Passendro Project in the Central
African Republic remains one of the most financially robust "ready to
build" projects available in Africa today."
