TORONTO, ONTARIO-- MacDonald Mines Exploration Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:BMK) ("MacDonald") has completed a financing which raised $500,000 through the sale of 5,000,000 flow-through units ("FT Units") at $0.10 each in a private placement brokered by IBK Capital Corp. Each FT Unit consists of one common share of MacDonald to be issued as a "flow-through share" and one non-flow-through common share purchase warrant.

All securities issued in connection with this financing will be subject to a four month hold period from the closing date and is subject to final regulatory approval.
The proceeds from the private placement will be used by MacDonald for exploration work on its properties in the James Bay area of Northern Ontario.
