(formerly Northcliff Resources Ltd.) in accordance with the TSX Venture Exchange Inc. (the "TSX-V") Policy 2.4 Capital Pool Companies.  The common shares of the Company are expected to begin trading as a Tier 1 Issuer on the TSX-V under the symbol "NCF" on June 8, 2011.

Further to the Company's news release dated January 19, 2011, the Company and Northcliff Holdings (Canada) Ltd. have also completed a non-brokered private placement financing of 27,857,544 common shares of the Company at a price per common share of $1.00 for total gross proceeds of $27,857,544 (the "Financing").

Northcliff President & CEO Christopher Zahovskis commented "We are very pleased to complete the Qualifying Transaction and financing, even as equity markets soften.  Both the size of the offering and the share price confirm that the Company has a high-quality mineral asset. We will use the proceeds to advance work on a feasibility study and an Environmental Impact Assessment for the project. Our goal is to complete the feasibility study and submit the Environmental Impact Study by the third quarter of 2012."

"Tungsten prices have been increasing for over a year as the supply from China has tightened" said Chairman Robert Dickinson. "This bodes well for Northcliff and its feasibility-stage Sisson Project, which hosts a significant deposit of tungsten and molybdenum that is located near tidewater and readily accessible to markets in the United States and Europe."

Feasibility work advancing at the Sisson Tungsten-Molybdenum Project

In October 2010, Northcliff entered into an agreement with Geodex Minerals Ltd., whereby it acquired a 70% interest in the Sisson Project which it can retain by investing up to $17 million in exploration, feasibility and project costs.

The Sisson Project hosts a large, near-surface, tungsten-molybdenum deposit that is potentially amenable to open pit mining. Previous project work includes 237 core drill holes, and initial engineering studies including metallurgical work.  Baseline environmental and socioeconomic data collection also began in 2007.

Currently estimated mineral resources, as reported in the Company's technical report at a 0.100% WO3 equivalent1 threshold, comprise:

  • 177.4 million tonnes of measured and indicated resources grading 0.157% WO3 EQ, including:
    • 28.8 million tonnes of measured mineral resources at 0.167% WO3 EQ (0.097% WO3 and 0.034% Mo) &
    • 148.6 million tonnes of indicated mineral resources at 0.155% WO3 EQ (0.094% WO3 and 0.030% Mo) plus
  • 69.0 million tonnes of inferred mineral resources grading 0.153% WO3 EQ (0.086% WO3 and 0.033% Mo).

The Company's current program includes engineering and environmental studies, designed to provide the data necessary to complete mine planning and necessary environmental and socioeconomic assessments for the project, as well as active engagement with local communities and other stakeholders.

Information Concerning Estimates of Measured, Indicated and Inferred Resources

This news release uses the terms "measured resources", "indicated resources" and "inferred resources". Northcliff advises investors that although these terms are recognized and required by Canadian regulations (under NI43-101), the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission does not recognize them. Investors are cautioned not to assume that any part or all of the mineral deposits in these categories will ever be converted into reserves.  In addition, "inferred resources" have a great amount of uncertainty as to their existence, and economic and legal feasibility. It cannot be assumed that all or any part of an Inferred Mineral Resource will ever be upgraded to a higher category. Under Canadian rules, estimates of Inferred Mineral Resources may not form the basis of feasibility or pre-feasibility studies, or economic studies except for Preliminary Assessment as defined under NI 43-101. Investors are cautioned not to assume that part or all of an inferred resource exists, or is economically or legally mineable.

1 %WO3 EQ calculations use prices of US$9.00/lb for WO3, US$15/lb for Mo and recoveries of 70% for WO3, 85% for Mo.
