Orko Silver Provides Update on Non-Brokered Private Placement
| ||September 13, 2010 - Orko Silver Corp (the "Company") (TSXV- OK) is pleased to provide an update on the non-brokered private placement announced on September 8, 2010. The Company intends to issue to a group of European investors, on a non-brokered private placement basis, approximately 700,000 common shares at an issue price of Cdn$1.65 per common share (the "Issue Price") for gross proceeds to the Company of Cdn$1,155,000 (the "Non-Brokered Placement").|
On September 8, 2010, the Company announced that Pan American Silver Corp. ("Pan American"), the Company's joint venture partner and the operator of the La Preciosa silver development project, would participate in the Non-Brokered Placement. Pan American has indicated that they will not participate in the Non-Brokered Placement.
Since forming the joint venture in mid-2009, Pan American has invested approximately $10 million in the exploration and development of La Preciosa and wants to dedicate their financial resources solely to the significant on-site and related engineering and technical work required to prepare a Preliminary Economic Assessment for the project, which is scheduled for completion in the fourth quarter of this year.
