TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 15, 2010) -

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

Eastmain Resources Inc. (TSX:ER) ("Eastmain") is pleased to announce that it has completed its previously announced private placement for 1.4 million "flow through" common shares ("FT Shares") at a price of $2.30 per FT Share, for aggregate gross proceeds of $3,220,000. The placement was fully subscribed, including the exercise of the full over-allotment option.

Casimir Capital L.P. ("Casimir"), who acted as agent in the offering, received a finder's fee equal to 6% of gross proceeds of the financing as well as non-transferable broker warrants entitling Casimir to subscribe, at a price of $1.60, for such number of common shares of Eastmain that are equal to 6% of the number of FT Shares that have been issued as a result of this financing. The warrants have a term of 24 months following the closing of the placement.

The placement was completed at a 75% premium to the last 10-day weighted average share price prior to the announcement of the private placement. The proceeds from this placement provide Eastmain with total working capital of approximately $20 million after closing. Proceeds from the placement will be used to fund exploration of Eastmain's numerous James Bay Québec gold projects, including its 100%-owned Eau Claire and Eastmain gold deposits, and its Éléonore South joint venture, allowing Eastmain to increase its 2010-2011 exploration budget by 34%.
