ST. JOHN'S, NL, Aug. 9, 2013 /CNW/ - Canada Fluorspar Inc. (TSX-V:CFI) ("CFI" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Company has closed a non-brokered private placement of 1,510,526 flow-through common shares (the "Flow-Through Shares") at a price of $0.19 per Flow-Through Share for gross proceeds of $286,999.94. Each Flow-Through Share is equal to one (1) common share in the capital of the Company and is issued on a flow-through basis.

"Based on positive results of the current drilling program at Grebes Nest, we have decided to extend the drilling and keep the drill rig on site," Lindsay Gorrill, President and CEO of the Company, said. "We are also targeting a National Instrument 43-101 compliant technical report on this site."

The Company paid finder's fees of 6% in cash to certain introducing parties on the gross proceeds of the private placement attributable to the purchases made by purchasers introduced by such parties. Finder's fees totaling $17,220.00 have been paid with respect to this private placement.

All of the Flow-Through Shares issued pursuant to the private placement are subject to a four-month and one day hold period expiring on December 10, 2013.

The gross proceeds from the Flow-Through Shares will be used for the Company's continued exploration activities on the Director and Grebes Nest Veins and other fluorspar properties located on the Company's 100% owned mineral properties at St. Lawrence, Newfoundland.
