North Arrow Minerals Inc. (TSXV-NAR) ("North Arrow" or the "Company") is pleased to announce it intends to complete a non-brokered private placement of up to 7,000,000 shares at a price of 50 cents per share for total gross proceeds of $3,500,000.

North Arrow also intends to complete a non-brokered private placement of up to 3,000,000 flow-through shares at a price of 60 cents per share for gross proceeds of $1,800,000.

It is anticipated that insiders of the Company will participate in the private placement on the same terms and conditions as arm's length subscribers. The Company may pay commissions and finders' fees in connection with a portion of the financing.

The private placement announced in this news release is subject to certain conditions, including receipt by North Arrow of all necessary regulatory approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
