("Manado") (TSX-V: MDO) announces update on its previously announced private placement financing of up to 5,000,000 units at a price of $250,000 per unit for gross proceeds of $250,000 (see news release dated March 27, 2014). Manado completed the first tranche of its private placement financing on April 22, 2014 by issuing 1,500,000 units at a price of $0.05 per unit for gross proceeds of $75,000.

The proceeds of the private placement financing will be used for mineral exploration on Manado's Takla-Rainbow Property and working capital purposes.
