VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 15, 2011) -

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES

Northern Lion Gold Corp. ("Northern Lion" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:NL)(FRANKFURT:N3E) announces that in response to over-subscription it has increased the size of its non-brokered private placement previously announced on April 12, 2011, to consist of up to 6,000,000 units (the "Units") at a price of $0.45 per Unit for gross proceeds of up to $2,700,000.

Each Unit will consist of one common share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole such warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase an additional common share at a price of $0.55 for a period of twelve months from the closing date.

The Company will pay a finder's fee equal to 7% of the gross proceeds raised, payable in cash or Units at the option of the finders, and issue non-transferable common share purchase warrants ("Finder's Warrants") in the amount equal to 8% of the number of Units subscribed for. Each Finder's Warrant will entitle the finder to purchase an additional common share of the Company at a price of $0.50 for eighteen months from the closing date. The financing is subject to receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals.

The proceeds of the private placement will be used to continue exploration on the Company's portfolio of gold–copper massive sulphide and shear targets in the Republic of Cyprus, and for general working capital.
