Odin Announces Private Placement

Vancouver, British Columbia - Odin Mining and Exploration Ltd. (TSXV: ODN) ("Odin" or the "Company") is pleased to announce a non-brokered private placement of up to 13,636,364 common shares of the Company at a price of Cdn$0.22 per common share for gross proceeds of up to Cdn$3,000,000 (the " Private Placement").

Odin will use the proceeds of the Private Placement for the payment of its obligations for its mineral concessions and for general working capital purposes.

Certain directors, officers and other insiders of the Company may acquire securities under the Private Placement. Any such participation would be considered to be a "related party transaction" as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 (" MI 61-101"). The transaction will be exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as neither the fair market value of any shares issued to or the consideration paid by such persons will exceed 25% of the Company's market capitalization.

Closing of the Private Placement is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. The Company anticipates closing of the Private Placement as soon as practicable subject to receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals. Finder's fees will be payable on a portion of the private placement, in accordance with the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange.
