North American Tungsten Announces Sale of Its Remaining Interest in the Jennings Property

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 8, 2009) - North American Tungsten Corporation Ltd. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:NTC) is pleased to announce that it has concluded an agreement to sell its remaining interest in the Jennings property (formerly known as Tootsie River) to its joint venture partner Agnico-Eagle Mines Limited ("Agnico"), for the sum of CAN$1.0 million cash. The Company would have held a 30% interest in the Jennings after Agnico's CAN$4.0 million work commitment. The property is located on the B.C./Yukon border approximately 85 km west of Watson Lake, Yukon.

Mr. Stephen Leahy, Chairman & CEO of the Company stated, "It was a pleasure working with such a professional group of people at Agnico but with the Jennings property being a non-core asset for us, the deal made very good sense."
