Vancouver, British Columbia – August 2, 2007 – Galway Resources Ltd. (“Galway” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: GWY) announces that it has completed its previously announced brokered private placement of 6,400,000 units at a price of $1.25 per unit through Evergreen Capital Partners Inc. (“Evergreen”) of Toronto, Ontario, for aggregate gross proceeds of $8,000,000. Galway has also completed a separate non-brokered private placement of 400,000 units at a price of $1.25 per unit, for aggregate gross proceeds of $500,000.
“We are pleased to have considerably increased our institutional shareholder base with this financing. The additional funding will enable us to continue to aggressively advance our three US based mining projects,” cites Robert Hinchcliffe, CEO of Galway Resources.
Each unit is comprised of one common share of the Company and one-half of one non-transferable common share purchase warrant, each whole warrant being exercisable for one additional common share of the Company at a price of $1.70 per share until February 1, 2009. The warrants are subject to acceleration in the event the closing trading price of the common shares of Galway on the TSX Venture Exchange is $2.00 per share or higher over a period of 20 consecutive trading days beginning on or after December 2, 2007.
In connection with the brokered private placement, the Company paid Evergreen a cash commission equal to 7% of the gross proceeds of the brokered private placement and issued Evergreen an aggregate of 448,000 non-transferable broker warrants (equal to 7% of the number of units sold pursuant to the brokered private placement). Each broker warrant entitles Evergreen to purchase one common share of the Company at a price of $1.25 per share until February 1, 2009.
The securities issued pursuant to the offering are subject to applicable Canadian hold periods and may not be traded until December 2, 2007, except as permitted by Canadian securities legislation and the TSX Venture Exchange.
Galway intends to use the proceeds of the private placements for the ongoing development of its three U.S. based projects and for general corporate purposes and working capital.
