Chieftain Closes Flow-Through Private Placement for Its 2013 Exploration Campaign

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Aug. 6, 2013) - Chieftain Metals Corp. ("Chieftain" or the "Company") (TSX:CFB) is pleased to announce that it has issued 1,250,000 flow-through shares at $0.80 per share for gross proceeds of $1,000,000 in a non-brokered private placement transaction to finance the Company's 2013 exploration campaign. In connection with the closing today, the company is paying finders' fees equal to 7% of the gross proceeds and issuing finders' warrants equal to 6% of the number of flow-through shares issued. Each finders' warrant is exercisable for 12 months into common shares at $0.80 per common share.

Mr. Victor Wyprysky, President and CEO stated, "Under the current market conditions, we are pleased to close the first tranche of financing our 2013 exploration campaign which will allow Chieftain to test specific targets selected as part of the conclusions arrived at from the geological reinterpretation of the Tulsequah Chief and Big Bull areas recently announced."

A desktop review of decades of exploration data and reports yielded significant targets near the Tulsequah Chief Mine as well as regionally (see the Company's press release dated May 29, 2013). The potentially mine-size Induced Polarization Inversion targets near the Tulsequah Chief Mine are the first priority given their geological features, followed by the regional targets at Big Bull and Banker-Sparling areas.
