Cross Lake Minerals Ltd.: Voluntary Delisting of Common Shares

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 29, 2009) - Cross Lake Minerals Ltd. (the "Company") reports that the common shares of the Company were voluntarily delisted from the Toronto Stock Exchange at the close of business on April 27, 2009.

The Company requested the delisting to allow it to complete a proposed plan of compromise and arrangement with its creditors under the Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act and the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia) (the "Plan"). Given that the Plan does not allow for any payment to the Company's shareholders, in light of the amount of existing indebtedness of the Company, the directors believe that the delisting at this time is in the best interests of the shareholders.

The Plan is subject to the approval of the creditors of the Company at the creditors' meeting to be held at the office of the PricewaterhouseCoopers Inc., the Court appointed Monitor of the Company's affairs, at the Granville Square Room, 200 Granville Street, Vancouver, British Columbia at 11:00 a.m. on May 7, 2009.

Additional information filed by the Company or the Monitor related to the Plan is available on the Monitor's website at
