VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Oct. 7, 2013) - Declan Resources Inc. ("Declan" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:LAN) is pleased to announce that it has completed its previously announced private placement of units (each, a "Unit"). Declan issued a total of 15,000,000 Units at a price $0.05 per Unit for gross proceeds of $750,000. Each Unit is comprised of one common share in the capital of the Company (a "Common Share") and one common share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one Common Share at any time within 12 months of the date of issuance at a price of $0.10 per Common Share. In connection with the completion of this private placement, Declan paid aggregate cash finder's fees in the amount of $49,525 to eligible finders who introduced subscribers to the private placement.

Declan intends to use the net proceeds of this private placement to further the Company's exploration projects and for general working capital.
