Galileo Exploration Ltd. (TSX Venture Exchange–Symbol: GXL) (the “Company”) has arranged a non-brokered private placement for gross proceeds of $500,000. The non-brokered private placement will consist of 4,000,000 units (“Units”) at a price of $0.125 per Unit, for gross proceeds of $500,000 (the “Private Placement”).
Each Unit will consist of one common share of the Company and one common share purchase warrant. Each Warrant will be exercisable by the holder to purchase one common share of the Company at a price of $0.175 for 18 months from the date of issuance.
Subject to regulatory approvals, the Company may pay to arm’s length finders a finder’s fee consisting of up to 7% of the amount raised by Finders in cash, and finder’s warrants up to 7% of the number of units sold by Finders under the Private Placement.

Mr. Ron Rieder, President and CEO noted: “Looking forward to the next 6 to 12 months, we anticipate final approvals for our recently announced Majuba Hill Copper project and we have set aside property option spending requirements for year one.
Consultants are identified and set to begin the 2017 exploration program, with applications for drilling permits completed and awaiting submission to the proper authorities upon the Exchange’s confirmation of final approval. Further details of the 2017 Galileo exploration initiatives will be released as soon as possible.
