VANCOUVER, Feb. 6 - Mawson Resources Limited ("Mawson") TSXv - MAW; Frankfurt - MRY. Mr Michael Hudson, President & CEO, is pleased to announce that the Company has closed its non-brokered private placement financing of 4,000,000 units at $2.00 per unit.

Each unit consists of one common share and one half warrant. Each whole warrant entitles the holder to acquire an additional common share at a price of $2.75 up to and including February 6, 2008. The share purchase warrants issued are subject to a forced conversion which is effective once the shares trade on a weighted average price of $3.50 per share for 20 consecutive trading days. The expiry date of the warrants will then be 30 days from the date of issue of a news release announcing the forced conversion. The Company has paid $497,500 as finder's fee on a portion of the private placement. All of the securities issued have a four month hold period expiring June 7, 2007.

The net proceeds from the private placement will be used for exploration expenses on the Company's projects in Sweden, Finland and Spain and for general working capital.

On behalf of the Board,

"Michael Hudson"
