Fjordland Acquires Moffat Property, South of Woodjam Gold-Copper Projects, BC

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 17, 2009) - Fjordland Exploration Inc. (TSX VENTURE:FEX) has acquired a 100% interest in eleven new claims totalling 4,548 hectares (Moffat Property), about 30 kilometres south of Horsefly in central British Columbia. The new property is situated approximately 6 kilometres south of the Woodjam Joint Venture's (60% Fjordland and 40% Cariboo Rose Resources Ltd - TSX-V: CRB) newly discovered Southeast Zone copper-molybdenum-gold mineralization on its recently expanded "Woodjam South" Property (13,388 hectares), where drilling of hole WJ-08-84 in 2008 intercepted 201 metres grading 1.01% copper and 0.44 g/t gold. The Moffat property adjoins part of the Woodjam South property to the south (a map of the property will be available shortly on the Company's website www.fjordlandex.com).

The acquisitions were completed to cover prospective ground in an area covered by extensive overburden, but interpreted to cover a geological contact zone between alkalic and calcalkalic intrusive bodies, which are known locally to host significant quantities of gold-copper-molybdenum porphyry-style mineralization.

Fjordland acquired nine of the claims that comprise the Moffat property by staking. For a 100% ownership in two additional claims totalling 869.7 hectares, Fjordland will pay to John Peters, a consultant to the Company, $349.25 to cover the cost of staking and issue 20,000 shares of Fjordland Exploration Inc., subject to approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

The Moffat property includes the Harrison Creek occurrence which was discovered by the BC Geological Survey Branch (GSB) during its 2008 mapping program. The occurrence was exposed as a result of 2008 logging, and comprises pyrite, chalcopyrite, magnetite and malachite within and along quartz-epidote-potash feldspar veins that cut monzodiorite. A grab sample of this mineralized vein material, taken by the GSB, returned 1671 ppm copper, 1432 ppm silver and 105 ppb gold. During a recent visit to the area, Fjordland geologists noted areas of extensive 2009 logging activities that have exposed numerous new outcrops of a similar geological nature as noted above. The Company is looking forward to conducting follow-up work.
