North Country Gold Corp. Closes $6.0 Million Private Placement Financing

EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Nov. 10, 2010) - North Country Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE:NCG) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has closed the private placement financing previously announced on October 6, 2010 with Canaccord Genuity Corp. (the "Agent") acting as exclusive agent. The Company sold 10,200,000 units (the "Units") of the Company at a price of $0.50 per Unit, for proceeds of $5,100,000 (the "Offering"). In addition, the Company completed a non-brokered private placement, where the Company issued 1,800,000 Units at a price of $0.50 per Unit for proceeds of $900,000.

Each Unit consists of one common share of the Company and one-half of one non-transferable common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant entitles the holder to subscribe for one additional share of the Company for a period of 24 months from the closing of the Offering at an exercise price of $0.60 per share. In the event that after four months and one day after the closing of the Offering, but in any case not before June 15, 2011, the volume weighted average trading price of the Company's common shares on the TSX Venture Exchange, for a period of 20 consecutive trading days exceeds $0.90, the Company may, within five days after such an event, provide notice to the Warrant holders of early expiry and thereafter, the Warrants will expire on the date which is 30 days after the date of the notice to the Warrant holders.

The Agent received a commission of 6.5% of the gross proceeds raised through the Offering, which was paid in a combination of cash and Units, and non-transferable warrants ("Broker Warrants") equal to 7% of the Units issued through the Offering. A portion of the cash commission ($93,925) was paid through the issuance of Units. Each Broker Warrant shall be exercisable to acquire one Unit of the Company at an exercise price of $0.50 per Unit for a period of 24 months from closing of the offering. The Agent also received a corporate finance fee of 250,000 Units. Securities issued under the Offering are subject to a hold period which will expire four months and one day from the date of closing, being March 11, 2011.

No fees were paid in connection with the non-brokered private placement portion of the financing.

The Company intends to use the proceeds of the Offering and the non-brokered private placement for exploration of the Company's Committee Bay Project located in Nunavut and working capital.
