(NOT FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA)

Northern Aspect Resources Ltd. (the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:NTH.P) mourns the passing of George Milton, a member of the Corporation's Board of Directors. Mr. Milton passed away this past week.

George Milton, had a long history with the other members of the Board of Directors of the Corporation as he had served alongside them on the Board of Directors of Kirkland Lake Gold Inc. and helped that company establish itself as one of the more important mining companies in the Kirkland Lake area of Ontario, with more than 850 employees and a total site workforce of close to 1,000 people working today. In particular, Mr. Milton worked closely with the geological team at Kirkland Lake Gold Inc. to oversee the successful exploration programs over his years that have established a resource and reserve base that should support gold production well into the future.

"We are deeply saddened by the loss of our colleague, George Milton" said Harry Dobson, Chairman of Northern Aspect Resources Ltd. "We have had the good fortune to work alongside George at Kirkland Lake Gold Inc. for many years where his greatest contribution was in the motivation that he gave to our geologists and the conviction he had in the Kirkland Lake Camp. We were very much looking forward to his leadership and insight in building Northern Aspect Resources Ltd., all of which will be greatly missed. On behalf of the Corporation's Board of Directors, I would like to extend our heartfelt condolences to the Milton family".
