TORONTO, June 20, 2011 /CNW/ - Starfield Resources Inc. (TSX: SRU / OTCBB: SRFDF) ("Starfield" or the "Company") today announced it has closed its previously announced private placement offering of units led by M Partners Inc. (the "Offering").

Together with the flow-through unit closing announced on May 30, 2011, and this closing, the Company raised a total of $5,153,285.

The Offering consisted of the sale of $1,363,650 of units (the "Units") at a price of $0.05 per Unit. Each Unit consisted of one common share and one common share purchase warrant (each a "Warrant"). Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional common share of Starfield at a price of $0.08 for 24 months from the closing date. All securities issued under the Offering will be subject to a hold period of four months plus one day extending from the closing date of the Offering.

The Company intends to use the net proceeds from this closing for exploration on its Stillwater property in Montana and for general operating expenses. The proceeds from the previously announced closing of flow through funds will be used for exploration at the Company's Ferguson Lake property in Nunavut, including the advancement of the Hydromet project.

In connection with the Offering, the Company paid a cash commission of 8% of the gross proceeds of the Offering.
