HUDSON ANNOUNCES PRIVATE PLACEMENT
Vancouver, BC – HUDSON RESOURCES INC. (“Hudson” – TSX Venture Exchange “HUD”) announces that it will be seeking approval from the TSX Venture Exchange to complete a non- brokered private placement of 5 Million units (“Units”) of the Company. The Units will be priced at $0.20 per Unit for total proceeds to the Company of $1,000,000. Each Unit will be comprised of one fully paid and non-assessable common share (a “Share”) in the capital of the Company and one transferable Common Share purchase warrant (a “Warrant”). Each Warrant shall entitle the holder thereof to purchase one additional Share (a “Warrant Share”) in the capital of the Company from the date of the issue until expiry 18 months after such date at an exercise price of $0.30 per Warrant Share. In certain events, the Company can accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants if the common shares trade above a weighted average of $0.50 for 20 days. Hudson reserves the right to issue an over-allotment of up to 5 million Units for additional proceeds of $1,000,000. A finder’s fee may be paid to arm’s-length parties on this private placement.
The net proceeds of the private placement will be used for further exploration of the Company’s previously identified rare earth element (“REE”) and niobium-uranium-tantalum bearing Sarfartoq Carbonatite Project, and for general corporate purposes. The Company has recently completed a review of over five years of historic work undertaken in the 1990’s and early 2000’s on the Sarfartoq Carbonatite Complex. A PowerPoint presentation outlining the results is available on the Company’s homepage at www.hudsonresources.ca.
Subject to the results of the sampling program scheduled to start on June 20, 2009, Hudson plans to conduct a minimum 1,000 meter drill program on the Sarfartoq Project in September.
