CANADIAN ARROW RECIEVES ONTARIO GOVERNMENT APPROVAL FOR RESUMED ALEXO/KELEX PRODUCTION

SUDBURY, ON, June 15, 2011 /CNW/ - Canadian Arrow Mines, Ltd. (CRO: TSX-V) (the "Company") reports it has received acceptance and filing of its Amended Alexo Closure Plan from the Ontario Ministry of Northern Development, Mines and Forestry (MNDMF). The Company is also pleased to report that it has received a critical "Exemption to Refine Domestically" from the Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, allowing refining of its mining products outside of Canada and clearing the path to conclude a production off-take agreement with a suitable partner.

Canadian Arrow President, Mr. Kim Tyler said, "Two more critical milestones required to resume production at our Timmins nickel mining operations have been met. Two-thirds of the world demand for nickel is consumed in stainless steel production. 2010 was a record year for world stainless steel production at 32M tonnes produced. 2011 is anticipated to break a new world record exceeding 35M tonnes. We are excited about the exceptional demand and continued robust prices for nickel in steel products such as rail lines, aircraft, ship building, girders and beams, water mains, oil and gas lines in the developing economies of Asia, Indonesia, South America and Africa. The upside potential of both our Timmins and Kenora based operations and the available capacity in world nickel processing facilities auger well for competitive negotiations. The Company is confident the investment community will soon recognize the glaring opportunity gap between these strong nickel market fundamentals and the exceptionally discounted market capitalizations of the North American junior nickel developers and producers."

The Company's NI 43-101 Measured + Indicated contained nickel metal resource including its flagship Kenbridge nickel project (Sedar Aug. 19, 2008) totals 110 M lbs of nickel. A Preliminary Economic Assessment completed on Kenbridge concludes a net present value of $253M. By comparison the Company's market capitalization currently stands at $11.5M or a discount of 99% to NAV. The closing non-LME spot nickel price on June 14, 2011 was quoted at US$10.17/lb. Canadian Arrow Mines trades on the TSX-V under the symbol "CRO" and has 132,792,030 shares issued and outstanding.  Closing share price as of June 14, 2011 was $0.065 per share.

Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability.

About Canadian Arrow Mines:

Canadian Arrow Mines Limited is developing two advanced nickel/copper mining projects located near existing infrastructure in Ontario, Canada. Its principal asset is the Kenbridge nickel-copper sulphide deposit located near Kenora, Ontario that remains open in three directions, is equipped with a 620 m shaft built and explored by Falconbridge Limited and has never been mined.

Highlights of an updated NI 43-101 Preliminary Economic Assessment Technical Report (PEA) on Kenbridge reported Sept. 4, 2008 include an operating cash cost/lb payable net of copper credits of US$3.47/lb nickel. At life of mine metal prices of US$10/lb Ni and US$2.50/lb Cu; a CD$1.00:US$0.90 exchange rate and a 7.5% discount rate the PEA concludes a Net Present Value of CD$253M is achievable. In addition to the work that Falconbridge expended, Canadian Arrow has additionally expended over $10M since acquiring the project.
