Amerix Precious Metals Corporation (TSX Venture: APM, Frankfurt: NJG) announces that it has received conditional approval from the TSX Venture Exchange for a non-brokered, private placement financing (the "Offering") of up to $1,050,000.
The Offering consists of up to 15,000,000 Units at a price of $0.07 per Unit, with each Unit consisting of one Amerix common share and one-half common share purchase warrant, with each whole common share purchase warrant entitling the holder to purchase one Amerix common share at a price of $0.15. The warrants will expire twenty-four months from the date of issue unless the closing price of the common shares has been $0.30 or higher for ten consecutive trading days, in which case the warrants will expire thirty (30) days after a news release announcing an earlier expiry date. The Offering also includes provision for a finders' fee payable at a rate of up to 8% of gross proceeds from Unit sales and Unit-purchase options ("broker warrants") at a rate of up to 10% of the number of Units sold.

The securities issued in connection with the Offering are subject to a four month hold period from the date of issue.
