Newstrike Announces Private Placement

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 13, 2011) -

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR RELEASE, PUBLICATION, DISTRIBUTION OR DISSEMINATION DIRECTLY, OR INDIRECTLY, IN WHOLE OR IN PART, IN OR INTO THE UNITED STATES.

Newstrike Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:NR) ("Newstrike") announced today that it intends to issue up to 1 million "flow-through units" of Newstrike at a price of $0.25 per unit for gross proceeds of up to $250,000 by way of non-brokered private placement (the "Offering"). Each flow-through unit consists of one "flow-through" common share of Newstrike and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole common share purchase warrant, a "Warrant") issued on a non-flow-through basis. Each Warrant shall entitle the holder to purchase an additional common share of Newstrike at an exercise price of $0.35 for one year from the closing of the Offering subject to early exercise. If Newstrike's common shares trade at or above $0.45 per share for 21 consecutive trading days, Newstrike may then accelerate the expiration of the Warrants upon not less than 30 days written notice.

The proceeds from the private placement are intended to be used for drilling on Newstrike's properties in Ontario. The private placement is scheduled to close on or about May 31, 2011 and is subject to regulatory approval including approval by the TSX Venture Exchange.
