Nyah Resources Decides Not to Proceed With Russo Forest Transaction

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 18, 2009) - Nyah Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:NRU) ("Nyah" or the "Corporation") announces that it has decided not to proceed with the proposed reverse take-over (the "Transaction") of Nyah by Russo-Forest Corporation ("Russo-Forest"). As a condition of not proceeding with the Transaction, Nyah has also provided notice to Cash Minerals Inc. ("Cash Minerals") that Nyah has terminated its agreement with Cash Minerals regarding the sale to Cash Minerals of Nyah's Agnew Lake uranium assets.

Pursuant to the share exchange agreement between Nyah and Russo-Forest, Nyah has exercised its right to terminate the share exchange agreement as the proposed transactions were not completed prior to October 31, 2009. The Board of Directors is considering the available options to recover the $500,000 payment owed to Nyah by Russo-Forest pursuant to the share exchange agreement that relates to the inability to complete the transaction prior by October 31, 2009.

George Faught, the President and CEO of Nyah, commented, "It is unfortunate that we are not able to complete the proposed transaction with Russo-Forest. Nonetheless, Nyah remains an attractive vehicle with $1.3 million in cash, its uranium and rare earth properties in Ontario and a management team that intends to aggressively pursue opportunities to acquire undervalued assets. In addition, we have re-assayed previous drill holes at our Agnew Lake property for certain Rare Earth Elements and expect to announce the results of such tests shortly."
