The Company paid a Finder’s Fee to Mackie Research Capital Corporation of $30,450 in cash and 362,500 warrants (the “Finder’s Warrants“) each Finder’s Warrant being exercisable into one common share at $0.18 for a period of 18 months from the date of issue.

Geoff Hampson, Chairman and CEO of Para Resources, commented:

“We are pleased with the strong support shown by investors in our business plan as is evidenced by the over subscription of this Private Placement. Para now has cash on hand to pay for the final additions to the El Limon mine rehabilitation and to provide working capital to see the Company through to anticipated cash flow early this summer. The Ball Mill, floatation tanks and the cyanide circuits are now fully operational and we expect to begin the ramp up to full production beginning in the week after Easter. Para expects production to slowly ramp up to full production of 200 TPD by August 2016.
