Millstream Completes Financing

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Jan. 20, 2012) - Millstream Mines Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:MLM)(FRANKFURT:NJD) is pleased to announce that it has completed a non-brokered private placement of $150,000 through the sale of 800,000 flow-through common shares at $0.05 each and the sale of 2,750,000 non flow-through common shares at $0.04 each. The above share issuance is subject to a four (4) month hold period.

The intended use of these proceeds is for exploration and development of its Potter Mine Property and for general working capital purposes. Specifically, the company will continue its investigative efforts on the Potter to determine and obtain an improved and more complete understanding of its potential by utilizing a geophysical Helicopter-Borne ZTEM TIPPER AFMAG survey over the entire property.

The company's management and consultants are of the opinion that on the Potter Property there is a likelihood of identifying additional ore zone targets outside of the present known resources. Furthermore, there is good probability of locating an offset/duplication of the existing defined ore zones and an increase in their present dimensions by way of uncovering their upward, downward and lateral continuity. In addition, there is interest in the large ovoid surface depression to the south and the northern limb of the syncline (the mine area being on the southern limb), as both present very favourable targets for future drilling prospects.

The above private placement is subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval.
