Vancouver, British Columbia - Cedar Mountain Exploration Inc. (CED: TSX-V) (Cedar or the "Company") is pleased to announce that further to its news release dated February 18, 2011, the Company has increased the non-brokered private placement by $1.25 million to raise gross proceeds of up to $4.25 million by the issuance of 17,000,000 units (the "Units") of the Company at a price of $0.25 per Unit. Each Unit will consist of one common share and one non-transferable common share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one additional common share of the Company at a purchase price of $0.35 per share for a period of 12 months from the date of closing (the "Closing Date") and thereafter at a price of $0.45 per share until 24 months from the Closing Date, subject to acceleration as described below.
In the event that, after the four month hold period on the Units has expired, the average closing price of the common shares of the Company is greater than $0.55 per share for any period of 10 consecutive trading days during the term of the Warrant, the Company may at its sole option, provide notice of such event to the holders of the Warrants and thereafter the Warrants will expire and cease to be exercisable on the date which is 30 calendar days after the notice is deemed delivered to the holders of the Warrants by the Company.
The Company may pay a finder's fee in cash or securities in connection with the Private Placement on terms to be negotiated by the Company.
