Anfield Announces C$22 Million Financing

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 8, 2012) -

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWS WIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES

Anfield Nickel Corp. (TSX VENTURE:ANF) ("Anfield") is pleased to announce that it intends to issue 5.2 million common shares at a price of C$4.25 per share to raise approximately C$22 million. Approximately C$15 million of common shares will be issued by way of a non-brokered private placement (the "Non-Brokered Placement") and approximately C$7 million will be raised pursuant to an agreement with a syndicate of agents, led by Raymond James Ltd. and including Canaccord Genuity Corp. and Salman Partners Inc. (collectively, the "Agents"), who have agreed to offer for sale approximately 1.65 million common shares on an expedited marketed private placement basis (the "Brokered Placement"). The Agents will receive a fee equal to 6% of the gross proceeds of the Brokered Placement. It is currently contemplated that Lumina Capital Limited Partnership ("LCLP") will purchase up to C$7.5 million of the Non-Brokered Placement and that other insiders will participate in the balance of the Non-Brokered Placement. Finder's fees may be payable on a portion of the Non-Brokered Placement.

Closing of the two placements is expected to occur on or about February 28, 2012 and is subject to regulatory approvals. The closing of the two placements is not conditional on each other, and may occur separately. The common shares issued pursuant to the Non-Brokered Placement and the Brokered Placement will be subject to a four month hold period.

The net proceeds from the two placements will be used to complete the prefeasibility study at Anfield's 100% owned Mayaniquel nickel project located in Northeastern Guatemala, to repay the amounts owed to LCLP under a current loan facility and for general corporate purposes.

The two placements are being made in all provinces of Canada and in the United States in accordance with certain exemptions under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and such other jurisdictions as may be agreed between Anfield and the Agents, and is subject to the approval of regulatory authorities. The securities offered have not been registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or any state securities laws, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements. This press release is for information purposes only and shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of the securities in any state in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
