VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 29, 2012) - Comstock Metals Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:CSL) ("Comstock" or the "Company") is cancelling the Private Placement that was announced on August 24th pending the release of new assay results recently received form the Company's follow up trenching program on its QV claims in the White Gold District of the Yukon. The proposed financing was to be a non-brokered private placement of up to 8,000,000 Units at a price of $0.25 per Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of $2,000,000.
The Company feels that the preliminary assay results from the QV trenches have changed its view of the project, and in the interests of all shareholders management has decided to cancel the proposed financing at this time. The Company recently closed a non-brokered private placement as also announced on August 24th and raised gross proceeds of $2,996,050.

About Comstock Metals Ltd.
Comstock Metals is focused on two principal projects: the QV Property in the Yukon Territory, and the Corona Property in Mexico. The QV Property lies within an area of 494 claims covering 10,374 hectares (25,634 acres) within the prolific White Gold District in the Yukon Territory about 70 kilometres south of Dawson City that were optioned from Shawn Ryan, a Yukon-based prospector responsible for the discovery of two of the prominent gold discoveries in the White Gold district: Kinross Gold's 1.5 million ounce Golden Saddle deposit and Kaminak Gold's Coffee projects.
The Company has also earned a 60% interest in the Corona Property in Mexico and can earn an additional 15% interest from Golden Goliath Resources (GNG) to hold a 75% interest by completing a positive bankable feasibility study by December 31, 2017. Comstock's Corona Gold-Silver project is located in the prolific Sierra Madre Occidentale in Chihuahua, Mexico. The Company completed a drill program in the spring of 2012. The drill program discovered two new zones of gold and silver mineralization. Please refer to the website at http://www.comstock-metals.com/projects/corona_gold_silver/ for details. Previous reverse circulation drilling identified both bulk tonnage and high-grade vein type gold/silver targets, some of which the Company plans to diamond drill.
