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

Paul Saxton, representing Lincoln Gold Corporation ("Lincoln") and Philip Walsh, representing LPT Capital Ltd. ("LPT") (TSX VENTURE:LPC.P), are pleased to announce that, at the special meetings held on February 18, 2009, Lincoln received necessary shareholder approvals to the business combination by way of statutory plan of arrangement involving Lincoln, LPT and its wholly-owned subsidiary 0843037 B.C. Ltd. In particular, Lincoln shareholders approved, and Lincoln completed, the continuation of Lincoln from the federal jurisdiction to British Columbia and shareholders approved the plan of arrangement, and LPT received shareholder approval to the share consolidation referred to in the news release of October 10, 2008. For details of the transaction please refer to the joint information circular (the "Information Circular") dated January 19, 2009 previously mailed to shareholders and available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

Following shareholder approvals, on February 20, 2009, the Supreme Court of British Columbia entered its final order approving the plan of arrangement transaction.

The completion of the transaction, which will constitute LPT's qualifying transaction under the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange, will occur in conjunction with the closing of LPT's concurrent financing as described in the Information Circular, which is currently expected to occur before the end of March, 2009. The financing consists of a non-brokered post consolidation private placement of units of LPT at a price of $0.17 per unit for gross proceeds of $3.38 million to a maximum of $4.0 million. Each unit consists of one post-consolidation common share of LPT and one-half of one transferable warrant, with each whole warrant exercisable to purchase one post-consolidation share of LPT for a period of three years at a price of $0.22 during the first year and $0.30 thereafter. The units have not been and will not be registered in the United States under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "1933 Act") and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the 1933 Act. This news release does not constitute an offer to sell the units.

LPT may pay finder's fees to third parties in connection with the private placement in an aggregate amount of 8% of the gross proceeds raised, payable at the election of the finder in cash or post-consolidation LPT shares on the basis of $0.17 per share.
