NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWS WIRE SERVICES OR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES

Fortune Minerals Limited (TSX: FT) (OTCQB: FTMDF) (" Fortune " or the " Company ") ( www.fortuneminerals.com ) is pleased to announce that it has closed a private placement of 3,571,399 common shares issued at a price of C$ 0.14 per share on a "flow-through" basis pursuant to the Income Tax Act (Canada) to raise gross proceeds of approximately C$500,000. The net proceeds received from this offering will be used to fund eligible Canadian Exploration Expenses on the Company's wholly-owned NICO cobalt-gold-bismuth-copper project (" NICO Project ") in the Northwest Territories.

Fortune is conducting a drill program at the NICO Project testing high priority targets identified in earlier geophysical and drilling programs, as well as surficial mineralization exposed in a road cut along the NICO Project access road alignment. Four holes have been completed at the east end of the NICO deposit to test the continuity of mineralization beyond an area of faults and dykes that were previously thought to terminate the deposit. Four holes have also been drilled to test the continuity of the Peanut Lake Zone where five holes drilled in 1997 each intersected 3 metre intervals exceeding 1 gram per tonne of gold, including one 3 metre intersection of 1.105 grams of gold per tonne and 0.355% cobalt. Two holes have also been drilled to test extensions to the Ralph Zone mineralization. The drill rig is expected to be moved to the area of the Road Cut mineralization later this week. No assays have been received to date.

The securities will not be and have not been registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933 and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or applicable exemption from the registration requirements.

However, such forward-looking information is subject to a variety of risks and uncertainties and other factors that could cause actual events or results to differ materially from those projected in the forward-looking information. These factors include the risks that the current drill program may be delayed and the results therefrom may not be as anticipated, the Company may not be able to finance and develop NICO on favourable terms or at all, uncertainties with respect to the receipt or timing of required permits, approvals and agreements for the development of the NICO Project, including the related hydrometallurgical refinery, the construction of the NICO Project may take longer than anticipated, the Company may not be able to secure offtake agreements for the metals to be produced at the NICO Project, the use of proceeds from the private placement may be different from those currently anticipated, the Sue-Dianne property may not be developed to the point where it can provide mill feed to the NICO Project, the inherent risks involved in the exploration and development of mineral properties and in the mining industry in general, the market for rechargeable batteries and the use of stationary storage cells may not grow to the extent anticipated, the future supply of cobalt may not be as limited as anticipated, the risk of decreases in the market prices of cobalt and other metals to be produced by the NICO Project, discrepancies between actual and estimated mineral resources or between actual and estimated metallurgical recoveries, uncertainties associated with estimating mineral resources and reserves and the risk that even if such resources prove accurate the risk that such resources may not be converted into mineral reserves, once economic conditions are applied, the Company's production of cobalt and other metals may be less than anticipated and other operational and development risks, market risks and regulatory risks.
