TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 30, 2009) -

THIS NEWS RELEASE IS INTENDED FOR DISTRIBUTION IN CANADA ONLY AND IS NOT INTENDED FOR DISTRIBUTION TO THE UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES.

Canadian Shield Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:EXP) ("Canadian Shield" or the "Company") is pleased to announce it has completed the previously announced non-brokered private placement offering of 2,250,000 Units at $0.80 per Unit and an over allotment of 250,000 Units for gross proceeds of $2,000,000. The private placement was substantially oversubscribed and the Company was forced to decline more than $3,000,000 subscribed for under the private placement after accepting subscriptions for 2,500,000 Units, the maximum number of Units that were price protected. The strike price was reserved with the TSX Venture Exchange on November 17, 2009.

Each Unit is comprised of one common share and one-half of a non-transferable Warrant. Each whole Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one common share at an exercise price of $1.20 per share until June 28, 2011. The Warrant is callable, at the option of Canadian Shield, after April 30, 2010, in the event its common shares trade at or over $1.60 per share for 10 consecutive trading days. If Canadian Shield elects to call the Warrants, it has 5 trading days to give notice of acceleration of the expiry date to the holders of the Warrants and the holders of the unexercised Warrants have 20 trading days to exercise their Warrants, failing which the unexercised Warrants shall expire.

In connection with the financing, the Company agreed to pay 5% cash finders' fees in the aggregate of $83,250 in respect of the gross proceeds from the sale of 2,081,250 Units and to issue an aggregate of 104,063 non-transferable Compensation Warrants representing 5% of the 2,081,250 Units sold to the purchasers introduced by qualified finders. Each Compensation Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one common share at an exercise price of $1.20 per share until June 28, 2011. The Compensation Warrants are callable, at the option of Canadian Shield, after April 30, 2010 on the same terms as the Warrants.

The 2,500,000 common shares issued under the private placement and any common shares issuable upon the exercise of the 1,250,000 Warrants and the 104,063 Compensation Warrants are subject to a 4 month regulatory hold period. Immediately following the closing of this financing, Canadian Shield will have 11,848,045 common shares issued and outstanding. The closing of the private placement is subject to final acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange.

The net proceeds of the offering will be used as follows: for the exploration program respecting Regional Andean Gold Exploration Program (announced in the Company's press release issued December 15, 2009); for property acquisitions; and for working capital and general corporate purposes.
