OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Jan. 12, 2011) -

(Not for Distribution to the United States Newswire Services or for Dissemination in the United States)

Green Swan Capital Corp. ("Green Swan") (TSX VENTURE:GSW.P) announces that, effective Thursday, January 13, 2011, its listing will transfer to NEX, where its shares will be listed under the symbol "GSW.H". NEX is a separate trading board of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV"). There is no change in the Corporation's name, no change in its CUSIP number and no consolidation of capital.

In conjunction with the transfer, Green Swan's Tier classification will change from Tier 2 to NEX and the Filing and Service Office will change from Toronto to NEX. Trading in Green Swan shares remains suspended pursuant to the TSXV Bulletin dated October 15, 2010.

In conjunction with the transfer to NEX, on January 6, 2011 Green Swan cancelled 1,040,000 Common Shares of the Corporation (the "Cancelled Seed Shares"). The Cancelled Seed Shares were all originally purchased for less than the purchase price of the Common Shares purchased in the Corporation's initial public offering. At this time, Green Swan has 7,040,000 Common Shares issued and outstanding, of which 1,040,000 Common Shares are held in escrow pursuant to the escrow agreement between Green Swan, Equity Transfer & Trust Company (now Equity Financial Trust Company) and certain shareholders dated June 20, 2008. Green Swan obtained the requisite shareholder approval (exclusive of the votes of non-arm's length parties to Green Swan) for the transfer to NEX and the cancellation of the seed shares at an annual and special meeting of its shareholders held on December 20, 2010 (the "Meeting").

At the Meeting, shareholders also re-elected Messrs. Morgan Cowl, John Daniel Hilton, Stephane May, Benoit Robitaille and Chris Skaarup as directors of the Corporation. Mr. Sean Caulfeild is no longer a director or corporate secretary of the Corporation. Mr. Hilton was appointed as the new corporate secretary by way of a subsequent board resolution.

Green Swan continues to work towards the completion of its qualifying transaction with Melkior Resources Inc. ("Melkior") pursuant to which Green Swan would, subject to a number of conditions, acquire certain assets of Melkior, namely an undivided one hundred percent legal and beneficial interest in and to certain mining claims located: (i) northwest of McFaulds Lake in the James Bay Lowlands in northern Ontario and (ii) west of the Attawapiskat River in the James Bay lowlands. The claims are subject to a 2.5% net smelter royalty. The proposed qualifying transaction is more fully described in Green Swan's news release dated September 13, 2010. 

Upon completion of the qualifying transaction, and subject to approval of the TSXV, it is anticipated that the Resulting Issuer will meet the Tier 2 listing requirements of the TSXV for a Mining Issuer.
