Nouveau Monde Mining Enterprises Inc. ("the Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:NOU) is pleased to announce that it has closed the second tranche of a non-brokered private placement of an aggregate number of 2,550,000 units of the Corporation, at a price of $0.10 per Unit, for an aggregate gross proceeds of $255,000, finalizing a $500,000 financing, the first tranche of which closed on May 6th, 2015.

Each unit is comprised of one common share of the Corporation and one-half of one common share purchase warrant. Each whole common share purchase warrant shall entitle the holder thereof to subscribe for one common share of the capital stock of the Corporation, at a price of $0.15 per common share, for a period of 12 months following the closing of the second tranche of the Units Offering.

The proceeds of the offering will be used by Nouveau Monde for its working capital and to incur exploration expenses on its properties. Maison Placements in Toronto received a cash payment of 3,500$ and 35,000 broker warrants to purchase up to 35,000 common shares in the capital stock of the Corporation, at a price of $0.15 per common share, within a delay of 12 months after the closing.

All securities issued under the second tranche of the Units Offering are subject to a restricted period of four months and a day, ending on September 22nd, 2015 under applicable Canadian securities legislation.

Following the radiation of an underlying asset in its last financial statement, 2,348,500 common shares of the Corporation were cancelled. This cancellation results from the application of the section 2.3 of the Surplus share escrow agreement applied to Tier 2 TSX Venture Stock Exchange (TSXV) companies signed between the Corporation insiders and the TSXV on the closing of the Qualifying Transaction in January 2013.

As a result of the financing and the escrowed shares cancellation, the Corporation will have 35,081,904 common shares issued and outstanding.
