High North Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:HN) (the "Company" or "High North") announces that the Shares for Debt Agreement announced on March 26, 2015 has been approved by the TSX Venture Exchange for the issuance of 1,500,000 warrants (the "Warrants") to three arm's length parties (the "Creditors") to settle an aggregate of $618,750 in outstanding debt under certain farmout agreements, as amended.

If the Creditors do not exercise all of their Warrants on or before the Expiry Date or within 14 business days of the Triggering Event, the un-exercised Warrants shall expire with no value given thereto.

The Company will issue press releases when the Warrants are exercised and shares are issued.

The Company expects that the exercise of the Warrants and the issuance of shares will not result in a change of control of the Company.
