Starfield announces $12 million private placement offering


    VANCOUVER, March 7 /CNW/ - Starfield Resources Inc. ("Starfield" or the
"Company") (TSX-V: SRU and OTCBB: SRFDF) is pleased to announce a private
placement offering consisting of up to 25,000,000 units of the Company (each a
"Unit") at a price of $0.24 per Unit and of up to 21,428,571 flow-through
common shares of the Company ("Flow-Through Shares") at a price of
$0.28 per Flow-Through Share (the "Offering"). Each Unit will consist of one
common share of the Company (a "Common Share") and one-half of one
transferable Common Share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each whole Warrant
will entitle the holder to acquire one Common Share at an exercise price of
$0.30 per Common Share. The Warrants will be exercisable for 24 months
following the closing of the Offering (the "Closing Date"). In the event that
the Common Shares trade at a closing price on the TSX Venture Exchange
("TSX-V") of greater than $0.375 per share for a period of 20 consecutive
trading days at any time after four months and one day after the Closing Date,
the Company may accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants by giving notice to
the holders thereof and, in such case, the Warrants will expire on the 30th
day after the date on which such notice is given by the Company.
    Mr. André J. Douchane, President and CEO of the Company, stated "I am
pleased that Starfield has commenced with this new private placement offering,
and upon completion of the offering, I am confident that we will be able to
advance our Ferguson Lake Project to the next stage."
    Starfield will use the proceeds from the Offering for general exploration
expenditures and general working capital purposes.
    Westwind Partners Inc., Westwind Partners (UK) Limited and Westwind
Partners (USA) Inc. (together "Westwind") will act as the lead agents for the
Offering and will offer the Units and the Flow-Through Shares on a best
efforts basis. Westwind may appoint other duly qualified agents (collectively,
with Westwind, the "Agents") to assist with the Offering. The Company will pay
the Agents a commission fee equal to 7% of the gross proceeds of the Offering.
In addition, on the Closing Date, the Company will issue non-transferable
broker warrants to the Agents entitling the Agents to collectively purchase
Common Shares in an amount up to 7% of the aggregate number of Units and
Flow-Through Shares issued pursuant to the Offering. Each broker warrant will
entitle the holder to buy one Common Share at the Unit issue price. The broker
warrants will be exercisable, in whole or in part, for a period of 24 months
following the Closing Date.
    The Company has provided Westwind with an option (the "Agents' Option")
to purchase or offer for sale up to an additional 12,500,000 Units and/or
10,714,285 Flow-Through Shares, collectively not to exceed an aggregate
principal amount of $3,000,000, on the same terms and conditions as the
Offering. The Agents' Option is exercisable no later than 7:30 p.m. (Toronto
time) on the second business day prior to the Closing Date. The Closing Date
is expected to occur on or about March 22, 2007 and is subject to certain
conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary
approvals including the approval of the TSX-V.
    The Offering will be made available in all provinces and territories of
Canada. Units may also be sold to U.S. purchasers on a private placement basis
pursuant to exemptions from the registration requirements of the United States
Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "U.S. Securities Act") provided by

categories of persons referred to in Article 19 (Investment Professionals) or
Article 49 (High net worth companies, etc.) of the Financial Services and
Markets Act 2000 (Financial Promotions) Order 2005.

solicitation of an offer to buy any of the Units, Common Shares, Flow-Through
Shares or Warrants (the "Securities") in the United States. The Securities
