Creston Moly Receives $3.36M From Exercise of Warrants

Proceeds to Fund Advancement of El Creston Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 17, 2009) -

NOT FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES OR FOR RELEASE VIA US NEWSWIRE SERVICES

Creston Moly Corp. (TSX VENTURE:CMS) ("Creston") is pleased to announce that 22,423,000 warrants have been exercised under the terms of the previously announced incentive program adding $3,363,450 to Creston's treasury.

The proceeds of the financing will be used to further advance the El Creston molybdenum project in Sonora, Mexico. An 18-hole first phase drill program is expected to commence in mid January 2010. The program is primarily designed to expand the Main Zone to the North, East and West of the resource outline, where the zone is open. The Main Zone is one of seven zones identified within a 1.2 x 5 kilometer trend of anomalous molybdenum in rock chip geochemistry and Aster Satellite Images. Currently the company is completing mapping and sampling over the six additional targets to better identify additional drill targets.

"We would like to thank our warrant holders for participating in the warrant incentive program," stated Bruce McLeod, President & CEO. "The funds will allow us to proceed with the dual–track value enhancement program we have developed for our El Creston molybdenum project. We will be advancing the project toward feasibility, while at the same time focussing on optimizing and increasing the size of the project to enhance the economics."

Early Warrant Exercise

In order to encourage the early exercise of the warrants, Creston offered a Unit (as defined and described below) for each Original Warrant exercised prior to the expiry date of the incentive program. Each holder of an Original Warrant who elected to exercise their Original Warrant will receive a unit (a "Unit") instead of a common share in the capital of Creston. Each Unit will consist of one common share and one-half of a warrant (a "New Warrant"). Each whole New Warrant will allow the holder to acquire an additional one common share of Creston at a price of $0.24 per share for two years following the date of issue of the Unit. The Warrants will be subject to a four-month hold period.

On Behalf of the Board of Directors
