Metropolitan Mining Inc.: Private Placement of Equity Securities


VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 1, 2011) -Metropolitan Mining Inc. (TSX VENTURE:MNZ) -

THIS PRESS RELEASE IS NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWS SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES

Metropolitan Mining Inc. ("Metropolitan" or the "Company") announces that it intends to complete a non-brokered private placement (the "Placement") pursuant to which it proposes to issue up to 5,900,000 units. Each unit (a "Unit") will be issued at a price of $0.06 per Unit and consist of one common share and one share purchase warrant (a "Share Purchase Warrant"), for gross proceeds of up to $354,000. Each Share Purchase Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to acquire one common share of the Company at a price of $0.10 for a period of two years from the date of issue. The Common Shares and the Warrants issued in connection with this Placement will be subject to a four-month hold period from the closing date, as prescribed by the TSX Venture Exchange and applicable securities laws.

Directors and officers of the Company will acquire up to 50% of the Units under the Placement, including Michael Thomson, CEO and a director of the Company, who has indicated his intention to subscribe for up to CDN$ 75,000 or 1,250,000 Units. Any such participation would be considered to be a "related party transaction" as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 ("MI 61-101"). The transaction will be exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as neither the fair market value of any units issued to nor the consideration paid by such persons will exceed 25% of the Company's market capitalization calculated as of the close of trading on the TSX Venture Exchange on May 31, 2011.

The proposed use of proceeds from the Placement is to provide corporate overhead for a one year period, to provide Metropolitan with a reserve for asset acquisition investigations and for general working capital purposes.

Metropolitan, a junior mining company, currently holds an interest in a copper/gold exploration property located in Salta, Argentina, pursuant to an option agreement. Management of the Company continues to investigate potential resource property acquisitions and other opportunities on an ongoing basis.
