Northern Shield Resources Commences Exploration at Wabassi, northern Ontario and completes Private Placement

    OTTAWA, June 10 /CNW Telbec/ - Northern Shield Resources Inc. ("Northern
Shield") (TSX-V: NRN) is pleased to announce that a reconnaissance rock
sampling program has been completed at its 100% owned Wabassi property in the
western James Bay Lowlands. The Wabassi property covers a PGE bearing layered
mafic-ultramafic intrusion that Northern Shield discovered in late 2007.
    The Wabassi property is located up-ice from a series of till samples
collected by the Ontario Geological Survey that are distinctly anomalous in
Ni-Cr and PGEs. The PGE potential of the intrusion was confirmed earlier this
year when Northern Shield identified significantly enriched PGEs in bedrock
(see press release dated January 17, 2008). The rock sampling program focussed
on the area of the property where the enriched bedrock located. The property
was also visited by Dr Wolfgang Maier, consultant to Northern Shield and world
renowned PGE and layered intrusion expert. The rock samples were sent to ALS
Chemex in Vancouver B.C where they are being analysed for PGEs and
base-metals. Assays are expected within two weeks.
    Exploration at Wabassi was supervised by Christine Vaillancourt, Northern
Shield's Chief Geologist, who is a Qualified Person under National Instrument

(the "Private Placement") of 920,000 units ("Units") of Northern Shield and
