Armistice Resources comments on Toronto Star article

    Issued and Outstanding common shares: 51,264,184

    TORONTO, Jan. 14 /CNW/ - Armistice Resources Corp. (TSX: AZ) ("Armistice"
or the "Corporation") wishes to comment on an article by Tony Van Alphen
published in the Toronto Star on Sunday, January 13, 2008. The article
contains references to Armistice which are not correct. Contrary to certain
statements made in the article, Armistice was not a participant in the scheme
described in the article. IMM Investments Inc. ("IMM") acquired shares of
Armistice (then known as Armistice Resources Ltd.) in a private placement
financing in June, 2004. The acquisition by IMM was made pursuant to a partial
revocation of a cease trade order granted by the Ontario Securities Commission
("OSC"). Armistice did not participate in any activities of IMM, Pender
International Inc. ("Pender") or individuals trading in Pender. The trading
activities of Pender subsequent to the private placement were carried out
without the knowledge or participation of Armistice. At the time when the OSC
lifted the cease trade order against Armistice in August 2005, the OSC was
aware of IMM and its investment in Armistice. In addition, the TSX was also
aware of IMM and its holdings in Armistice at the time of the Corporation's
application to list its shares on the TSX in 2006.
    The facts relevant to IMM and its holdings in Armistice were set out in
an earlier press release (August 15, 2006) when the following was disclosed:

    "On June 15, 2006, the Corporation received a conditional approval for
the listing of its common shares on the TSX. Final listing is conditional
upon, among other matters, completion of the financing announced in this press
release, the appointment of an additional independent director within 90 days
of listing and an undertaking with respect to persons (the "Respondents")
named in a cease trade revocation order issued by the Ontario Securities
Commission (the "Commission") and posted on August 19, 2005 at the
Commission's web site. None of the Respondents are related to the Corporation
but were involved in trading activities of the parent company of IMM
Investments Inc. ("IMM"), a significant shareholder of the Corporation. The
undertaking provides that: (a) none of the Respondents will be appointed an
officer or director of the Corporation; (b) until the Commission's
investigation relating to the allegations against the Respondents is complete,
IMM will not nominate any individual to the board of directors without the
consent of the TSX; (c) IMM will execute an amendment to an escrow agreement
providing that its securities being held in escrow cannot be voted without the
consent of the TSX (which amendment was executed by IMM on June 5, 2006); (d)
none of the Respondents will participate in future financings of the
Corporation until the Commission has completed its investigation; and (e)
until the Commission's investigation is complete, if any derogatory
information is found on any officer or director of the Corporation, the TSX
may require the resignation of any of these individuals if deemed unacceptable
to the TSX".

    Armistice has no relationship with IMM, Pender or its principals.
Armistice has contacted counsel and will be seeking a retraction of statements
made in the Toronto Star article.

    Armistice is a Canadian exploration company that owns an advanced
exploration underground gold project in North-eastern Ontario located on the

adjoins the former producing Kerr Addison gold mine which produced in excess
