(the "Agents") in respect of a brokered private placement of 22,100,000 subscription receipts of Mena at a price of $2.30 per subscription receipt to raise gross proceeds of up to $50,830,000. The Agents have been granted the option (the "Over Allotment Option") to place an additional 11,050,000 subscription receipts for additional gross proceeds of $25,415,000. Each subscription receipt will be exercisable without further consideration into one share of Mena and one-half of one share purchase warrant.

The gross proceeds of the offering will be held in escrow pending satisfaction of certain conditions (the "Escrow Conditions"). If the Escrow Conditions are satisfied, the subscription receipts will be deemed to be exercised immediately prior to Rusoro's proposed acquisition (the "Acquisition") of all of the issued and outstanding securities of Mena. Pursuant to the terms of the Acquisition, one common share of Rusoro and one common share purchase warrant of Rusoro will be issued for every 1.7 issued and outstanding Mena common shares and Mena warrants (an equivalent price of $3.91 per Rusoro common share). If the private placement and Over Allotment Option are fully subscribed, 19,500,000 common shares of Rusoro and warrants entitling the holders to purchase 9,750,000 common shares of Rusoro will be issuable in exchange for the Mena common shares and Mena warrants underlying the subscription receipts. The proceeds of the offering will be used for further development of Rusoro's existing properties and working capital. Completion of the private placement is subject to certain conditions, including acceptance for filing by the TSX Venture Exchange. A meeting of shareholders of Mena has been called for February 26, 2007 to approve the Acquisition. Shareholders will be receiving shortly materials relating to the meeting. If the Mena shareholders approve the Acquisition and all other conditions are satisfied, completion of the Acquisition is expected to occur on or about March 5, 2007.
