VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 16, 2008) - Lions Gate Metals Inc. (TSX VENTURE:LGM) ("LGM" or the "Company") announces that it has filed with the TSX Venture Exchange a notice of its intention to make a normal course issuer bid.

The notice provides that the Company intends to purchase up to 527,853 of its common shares by way of normal course purchases through the facilities Exchange representing 5% of the Company's outstanding common shares. The actual number of shares and the timing of the purchases will be determined by LGM. Purchases pursuant to the bid will be conducted by Blackmont Capital Corp. in accordance with the policies of the Exchange. The Company will pay the market price for the shares at the time of purchase. All purchased common shares will be cancelled.

Lions Gate believes that the market price of its common shares is such that their purchase may be an attractive and appropriate use of corporate funds in light of potential benefits to remaining shareholders.
