Canarc Closes $100,000 Private Placement Financing
December 1, 2008
Vancouver, Canada – December 1, 2008 - Canarc Resource Corp. (TSX: CCM: OTC-BB: CRCUF, DBFrankfurt: CAN) announces that it has closed a $100,000 non-brokered private placement financing.
The private placement consisted of 1,000,000 units priced at CA$0.10 each for gross proceeds of CA$100,000. Each unit consists of one common share and one half share purchase warrant. Each full warrant can be exercised to purchase an additional common share at CA$0.15 within an 18 month period.
The units will be subject to the standard four month hold period (and a US legend for American subscribers only). All of the subscribers are existing shareholders of the Company. Canarc will use the net proceeds to evaluate prospective gold mine property acquisitions, and for working capital.
Canarc management is of the belief that, notwithstanding the dramatic sell-off of junior gold mining shares in recent months (including Canarc shares); the current market environment is quite attractive now for making strategic gold property acquisitions.
Canarc Resource Corp. is a growth-oriented, gold exploration company listed on the TSX (CCM) and the OTC-BB (CRCUF). Canarc is currently focused on advancing its New Polaris gold mine project in British Columbia, exploring the large Benzdorp gold property in Suriname and acquiring attractive gold exploration and mining projects in North America. Barrick Gold Corp. is a shareholder.
