Vancouver, British Columbia — December 7, 2006 — Galway Resources Ltd. (“Galway” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: GWY) announces that it has completed its previously announced private placement of 6,250,000 units (“Units”) at a price of $0.80 per Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of $5,000,000. Each unit is comprised of one common share and one-half of one non-transferable common share purchase warrant, each whole such warrant exercisable for one additional common share at a price of $1.25 per share until June 6, 2008. The warrants will be subject to acceleration in the event the closing trading price of the common shares of Galway on the TSX Venture Exchange is $1.70 per share or higher over a period of 20 consecutive trading days beginning on the date that is four months and one day after the date of issuance of the warrants.
Two arm’s-length finders were paid an aggregate of $74,480 in finder’s fees and were issued an aggregate of 86,050 common share purchase warrants (“Finder’s Warrants”) in connection with certain subscriptions under the offering. Each Finder’s Warrant is exercisable for one common share at a price of $0.85 per share until June 6, 2008, subject to the same acceleration provisions described above.
The securities are subject to a hold period and may not be traded until April 7, 2007 except as permitted by Canadian securities legislation and the TSX Venture Exchange.
Galway intends to use the proceeds of the private placement to fund the Company’s 12 month work program on each of its three properties (Indian Springs, Victorio and Lone Mountain), as recommended in the technical reports prepared by SRK Consulting (U.S.), with the balance available for general working capital purposes.
