Latin American Minerals Inc. (CVE:LAT) announced today that it has arranged a non-brokered private placement of up to 12 million units at a price of C$0.05 per unit for gross proceeds of up to $600,000. According to the company, funds raised will be used for general working capital purposes.

According to the terms of the placement, each unit will consist of one common share and one common share purchase warrant. Each warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one common share for a period of 24 months from the closing of the offering at a price of C$0.10 per common share. The company said funds raised will be used for general working capital purposes.

"Led by Jeremy Niemi, our exploration program has led us to a point where we are visually beginning to see what we believe to be a continuous formation of silicified rocks. These rocks are similar to those that have resulted in gold mineralized assays in previous drill campaigns," said Mathew Wilson, president and chief executive officer.

"While we realize that this extra dilution is not ideal, we believe it is necessary to drill additional holes in an effort to properly define what we believe could be the start of a significant structure."
