TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 13, 2013) - North American Palladium Ltd. ("NAP" or the "Company") (TSX:PDL)(NYSE MKT:PAL) announced today that it has filed a final base shelf prospectus with applicable securities regulators in each of the provinces of Canada and a corresponding registration statement with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission.
The filing is part of the Company's standard course of business, to replace the shelf prospectus that expired in 2012. The shelf prospectus allows NAP to make offerings of common shares (including flow-through shares), debt securities, warrants, and subscription receipts in an aggregate principal amount of up to US$300 million during the 25-month period that the shelf prospectus remains effective. The nature, size and timing of any such financings depend, in part, on NAP's assessment of its requirements for funding and general market conditions.

A registration statement relating to these securities has been filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission but has not yet become effective.
