CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Nov. 17, 2009) - Cypress Hills Resource Corp. ("Cypress") (TSX VENTURE:CHS) announces it has implemented the special resolution, approved at its annual and special meeting of shareholders held on July 24, 2009 (the "Shareholder Meeting"), for a consolidation of its issued common shares on a 10 for 1 basis, resulting in a total of 3,005,432 common shares of Cypress being outstanding. Effective at the opening of trading on November 18, 2009, the common shares Cypress will begin trading on the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange") on a consolidated basis. Its trading symbol will change from "CHS" to "CHY".

Registered shareholders of Cypress are required to deliver their existing common share certificates (the "Pre-Consolidation Shares") to Cypress' registrar and transfer agent, Computershare Trust Company of Canada ("Computershare"), which will exchange the Pre-Consolidation Shares for new common share certificates of Cypress (the "Post-Consolidation Shares"). To receive Post-Consolidation Shares, registered shareholders should follow the instructions set out in the letter of transmittal delivered to shareholders with the Shareholder Meeting materials (the "Letter of Transmittal") and send their Pre-Consolidation Shares, together with the Letter of Transmittal, to Computershare. Computershare will then deliver, or hold for pick up, the Post-Consolidation Shares to which each registered shareholder is entitled, in accordance with the instructions given in the Letter of Transmittal. A Letter of Transmittal may be found at

Beneficial shareholders (i.e. shareholders whose shares are held through a brokerage account) are requested to contact their brokers for necessary coordination of the distribution of the Post-Consolidation Shares to which they are entitled.
