Alhambra Resources Ltd. Announces Its Intention to Complete a Cdn$8.0 Million Financing
Alhambra will issue up to Cdn$8.0 million in convertible secured promissory notes (the "Notes") and warrants. Each Note will bear interest at an annual rate of 12%, will have a term of three years and will be secured by the Corporation's assets in Kazakhstan. The holders will have option to convert both the principal and interest portions of the Notes into common shares of the Corporation at Cdn$0.075 per common share. Alhambra has the option to pay the interest in either cash or shares of the Corporation.
In connection with each common share issued upon conversion of the Notes, the holder of the Notes will receive one-half (1/2) of a warrant. Each full warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one common share of Alhambra at a price of Cdn$0.15 per common share up to including a date which is eighteen (18) months from the date the common shares are issued.

Completion of the financing is subject to receiving approvals from the TSX Venture Exchange Inc. and the Alberta Securities Commission
