Adanac to Seek Order Approving Plan of Arrangement, Setting Date for Meetings of Creditors and Dispensing with Requirement for Meeting of Shareholders

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 13, 2010) - Adanac Molybdenum Corporation (TSX:AUA)(PINK SHEETS:AUAYF)(FRANKFURT:A9N) ("Adanac" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has finalized a plan of compromise and arrangement (the "Plan") in a form acceptable to the Company and the Plan's sponsors, the Senior Secured Noteholders. Adanac will apply to the Supreme Court of British Columbia on Monday, October 18, 2010, for an order authorizing the Company to file the Plan and to convene meetings of its creditors to consider and vote on the Plan (the "Creditors' Meeting Order").

Pursuant to the Plan, it is intended that, among other things, Adanac's notice of articles and articles will be amended to increase its authorized share capital, and that the Company's existing shares will be consolidated at a rate of 150:1. New shares will be then be issued to allow an allocation of shares to the Senior Secured Noteholders (92%) and the Affected Unsecured Creditors (5%) in full and final satisfaction of their claims, and the retention by existing shareholders of 3% of Adanac's Outstanding Common Shares. Affected Unsecured Creditors with claims equal to or less than $50,000, or reduced (for distribution purposes only) at their election to $50,000, will receive a cash distribution in an amount equal to the lesser of 10% of their claims and $5,000 in full and final satisfaction of their claims, unless they elect to receive their pro rata share of 5% of Adanac's Outstanding Common Shares as outlined above.

In accordance with the conditions of the Restructuring Term Sheet entered into among the Company and certain of the Senior Secured Noteholders, Adanac will ask the Court to order that Adanac is not required to hold a meeting of its shareholders for the purposes of considering and voting on either the Plan or the proposed amendments to the Company's notice of articles and articles.

Any shareholder that wishes to take a position on the Company's application for the Creditors' Meeting Order may attend at the Courthouse at 800 Smithe Street, Vancouver, British Columbia at 9:00 on Monday, October 18, 2010 to make their position known.

Information and documents relating to the Plan and the Creditors' Meeting Order will be published shortly on the website of Adanac's Court-appointed Monitor, KPMG Inc.:
