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

VANCOUVER, Nov. 3, 2011 /CNW/ - Copper North Mining Corp. ("Copper North" or the "Company") (TSX.V:COL) is pleased to announce a 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 will consist of one common share and one warrant, with each warrant entitling the holder to purchase one additional common share of the Company at a price of $0.28 for a period of two years following the date the warrants are issued.

The proceeds from the sale of the units will be used for general working capital.

The participation in the private placement by Dr. Eyre will be considered a "related party transaction" as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 ("MI 61-101").  The transaction will be 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 will exceed 25% of the Company's market capitalization.

This financing is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.  The Company anticipates closing of the private placement as soon as practicable subject to receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals.
