Stocks in this article: FRI

TSX Venture Exchange:  FRI Shares Issued:    14,226,232

VANCOUVER, Dec. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ - Freeport Resources Inc. (TSXV-FRI) is pleased to announce  closing of the first tranche of a non-brokered private placement announced last month.  A total of $521,000 has been received from the issuance of 105,000 flow through shares at $0.20 per share and 2,500,000 non-flow through shares at $0.20 per share.  These shares are subject to a four month hold period expiring April 24, 2012.  Finders' fees in the amount of $25,000 cash are payable in connection with the issuance of these shares.  The second tranche is expected to close by mid-January 2012.  As previously announced, Freeport intends to raise up to $1,060,000 from issuance of up to 5,000,000 non-flow-through and 300,000 flow-through shares, at a price of $0.20 per share.  Proceeds will be used to further advance Freeport's exploration programs in Canada and meet ongoing working capital requirements.

Our 100% owned properties include the Hutton Garnet Beaches, a high grade heavy mineral sands project advancing to the production stage in NL, and three projects in BC:  a) Spanish Mountain Gold, immediately adjacent to and on strike with an advanced stage, multi-million ounce gold project; b) The Q, a large, advanced stage fluorspar deposit with associated molybdenite, and; c) the Red Rose Mine, a past producing tungsten-gold-copper mine, of increasing interest due to strong tungsten demand and all-time highs up to $470/MTU (approx. $21.50/pound).

Freeport thanks our friends and shareholders for their continued support, with best wishes to all for the holiday season.
