Northern Superior Announces Non-Brokered Private Placement Financing

SUDBURY, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 7, 2009) - Northern Superior Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SUP)(the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has initiated a non-brokered private placement to raise between $2,500,000 to $3,000,000. The funds raised will be utilized to further exploration work on the Company's gold projects.

"The raising of these funds will be used to advance our gold exploration programs, particularly the 2010 drill programs planned for the Ti-pa-haa-kaa-ning gold property in northwestern Ontario", said Thomas F. Morris, President and CEO. "Following the successful airborne geophysical program completed in the fall of 2009 over this property, the Company is now ramping up logistics for drill programs (both reverse circulation and diamond drilling) slated for the first and second quarters of 2010."

Under the Financing, the Company will issue up to 25,000,000 units of the Company at a price of $0.12 per unit. Each unit will be comprised, at the election of the Company and each investor, of either: (i) one flow-through common share of the Company and one-half of a share purchase warrant (the "FT Units"), or (ii) one common share of the Company issued on a non-flow through basis and one half of a share purchase warrant (the "Non-FT Units"). Each whole warrant forming part of all Units will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one common share of the Company issued on a non-flow through basis, for a period of 2 years from the closing of the Financing, at a price of 0.16 per share in the first year and $0.20 per share thereafter. The gross proceeds raised from the sale of FT-Units will be expended on qualifying Canadian Exploration Expenses (CEE) on the Company's mineral projects on or before December 31, 2010. The Company will renounce such CEE to FT Unit subscribers with an effective date of no later than December 31, 2009. All of the securities issued or issuable pursuant to the financing will be subject to a statutory hold or restricted period of four months and one day following the closing of the Financing.

The Company may pay to one or more registered dealers, cash commissions of up to 7% of the gross proceeds raised and may also issue broker warrants entitling such dealers to purchase that number of common shares of the Company as is equal to 7% of the number of FT Units and Non-FT Units sold to investors, at a price of $0.12 per share for a period of 2 years from the closing of the Financing.

The financing is subject to regulatory approval.
