(TSX VENTURE: KEC) ("Kallisto" or the "Company") announces that it has completed a non-brokered private placement by issuing 7,185,714 common shares on a "flow-through basis" (the "Flow Through Shares") at a price of $0.07 per Flow Through Share for gross proceeds of $503,000. The gross proceeds from the sale of the Flow Through Shares will be used to fund Canadian development expenses at Minnehik - Buck Lake, which will be renounced in favour of the subscribers of the Flow Through Shares effective on or before December 31, 2014.
The Flow Through Shares issued in connection with the private placement are subject to a hold period of four months under applicable securities laws.
