Copper North Closes $200,000 Non-Brokered Private Placement

VANCOUVER, Nov. 16, 2011 /CNW/ - Copper North Mining Corp. ("Copper North" or the "Company") (TSXV: COL) is pleased to announce that it has closed its non-brokered private placement of 800,000 units of the Company at the price of $0.25 per unit to Sally Eyre, the President and Chief Executive Officer and a director of the Company.  Each unit consists of one common share and one non-transferrable warrant, with each warrant entitling the holder to purchase one additional common share of the Company at a price of $0.28 until November 16, 2013.

The shares, warrants and shares issuable on exercise of the warrants are subject to a hold period expiring on March 17, 2012.

Copper North intends to use the proceeds from the sale of the units for general working capital.

The participation in the private placement by Dr. Eyre is considered a "related party transaction" as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 ("MI 61-101").  The transaction is 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, nor the consideration paid by, Dr. Eyre exceeded 25% of the Company's market capitalization.

The Company did not file a material change report more than 21 days before the expected closing of the private placement as the details of the private placement were not settled until shortly before the announcement of the private placement and the Company wished to close the private placement on an expedited basis for sound business reasons.
