Acadian Mining Announces Initial Closing Of Second Tranche Of Private Placement And ACQUISITION OF REMAINING INTEREST IN FIFTEEN MILE STREAM GOLD PROPERTY


Acadian Mining Also Announces That ScoZinc Has Paid Creditors Pursuant To Approved Plan Of Arrangement


Acadian Mining Corporation (TSX: ADA) ("Acadian" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has completed the initial closing ("Initial Closing") of the second tranche of the private placement ("Second Tranche") of common shares ("Shares") to Golden River Resources Corporation ("Golden River") announced on March 17, 2009.  On the Initial Closing, Acadian issued 46,166,666 Shares for aggregate gross proceeds of approximately $1.4 million. 


With the Initial Closing, Golden River has irrevocably committed to complete the entire Second Tranche, consisting of an aggregate of 300,000,000 shares at $0.03 per share for aggregate proceeds of $9 million.  Additional closings will be held between now and no later than March 2010 in order that proceeds can be advanced to the Company to fund operational overheads and the advancement of Acadian�s gold properties in accordance with an agreed upon budget.  The Second Tranche was subject to the approval of Acadian�s shareholders and to the satisfaction of certain other conditions.  Acadian�s shareholders gave their approval at the Company's annual and special meeting held on June 9, 2009.  See news release 12-09 dated June 10, 2009 for further details.


As a condition of the Initial Closing, Acadian acquired the remaining 50% interest in its Fifteen Mile Stream property and also acquired certain lands required for the mining of the Forest Hill deposit.  See news releases 03-09 and 06-09 dated March 17 and April 3, 2009, respectively, and the Company�s management information circular dated May 7, 2009 for further details. 


Payment of ScoZinc�s Creditors


Acadian is also pleased to announce that ScoZinc Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Acadian, has completed its plan of arrangement ("Plan") prepared pursuant to the provisions of the Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act ("CCAA") to settle the claims of certain of its creditors.  The amounts owing to the creditors were paid today pursuant to the terms of the Plan.  The completion of the Plan was contingent on Golden River committing to the Second Tranche.


ScoZinc's creditors had voted overwhelmingly in favour of the Plan at a meeting of creditors held on May 21, 2009 and, on May 29, 2009, the Supreme Court of Nova Scotia ("Court") ratified the Plan. See the Company�s news release 07-09 dated April 29, 2009, for further details of the Plan. The materials filed with the Court to date in the CCAA proceedings are available at under the Creditor Updates Links.
