June 10, 2011


Orosur Mining Inc. (“OMI” or “the Company”) (TSX-V: OMI) (AIM: OMI), the South American-focused gold producer and explorer, announces the successful completion of the placing (the “Placing”) announced yesterday. A total of 12,501,100 new common shares (the “Placing Shares”) have been placed by Canaccord Genuity Limited (“Canaccord Genuity”) acting as sole manager and sole bookrunner, at a price of 66.0 pence (CDN$1.05) per common share (a discount of 9.0% from the closing price on AIM on 9 June 2011), raising gross proceeds of US$13.5 million (£8.3 million).

Mario Caron, David Fowler, William Lindqvist, Julio Porteiro, Roger Davey, Ralph Browning and Ignacio Salazar, all of whom are Directors of the Company, have agreed to subscribe for common shares at the Placing Price, and their disclosable interests are as set out below:

Director New common shares subscribed Shareholding immediately following Admission Percentage of enlarged issued share capital
Mario Caron 28,000 78,000 0.10%
David Fowler 106,500 239,951 0.31%
William Lindqvist 28,000 58,000 0.07%

Ralph Browning 65,000 65,000 0.08%
Ignacio Salazar 93,000 173,000 0.22%

In connection with the Placing, Canaccord Genuity will receive a 5% cash commission on all proceeds received as well as that number of broker warrants equal to 4.5% of the number of Placing Shares, each of which will entitle Canaccord Genuity to purchase one common share at 66.0 pence per share until the date that is 18 months from the date the Placing Shares are admitted to AIM.

In connection with the Acquisition, the Company shall allot 231,321 new common shares (the “Consideration Shares”) for issuance, as consideration for the introduction of Talca to the Company.

The Placing Shares and Consideration Shares (collectively referred to as the “Placing and Consideration Shares”) will be issued as fully paid and will rank pari passu with the existing common shares of the Company, including the right to receive all dividends and other distributions declared, made or paid on or in respect of such shares after the date of issue of the Placing and Consideration Shares. The Company will apply for the Placing and Consideration Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM and for the Placing and the placement of the Consideration Shares to be approved by the TSX-V. It is expected that closing of the Placing will take place on or around 16 June 2011. The Placing and Consideration Shares will be subject to a hold period in Canada of four months and a day from the date of issue, in accordance with applicable Canadian securities laws.

Following the issuance of the Placing and Consideration Shares, the total number of issued common shares in Orosur to which voting rights are attached on the basis of one vote per common share held will be 77,740,988.  Subject to the admission to AIM of the Placing and Consideration Shares and approval of the Placing and the placement of the Consideration Shares by the TSX-V, the above total voting rights figure may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine whether they are required to notify their interests in, or a change to their interest in, the Company under the FSA's Disclosure and Transparency Rules and applicable Canadian securities laws.

Definitions in the Company’s announcement on 9 June 2011 shall have the same meaning in this announcement unless the context otherwise requires.

Commenting on the successful placing, David Fowler, CEO said:

“We’re delighted that we have raised the necessary funds for the acquisition and exploration programme at Talca, a project which we feel has great potential. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank our shareholders for their continued support and look forward to updating them on our progress.”
