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

Northisle Copper and Gold Inc. (TSX VENTURE:NCX) ("Northisle" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has reached an agreement with Salman Partners Inc. ("Salman") to act as lead agent ("Agent") for a $1,500,000 private placement offering of Flow Through shares (the "Offering") of the Company. Each Flow Through share will be issued at a price of $0.35. In addition, the Company has granted Salman an option to increase the size of the Offering by up to $300,000 at any time until 2 days prior to the Closing of the Offering.

At Closing, the Agent will be paid an aggregate fee of 6.5% of the gross proceeds from the Offering payable in cash. As additional consideration, the Agent will receive transferable broker warrants (the "Broker Warrants") equal in number to 6.5% of the aggregate number of Flow Through Shares sold pursuant to the Offering (including Flow Through Shares sold pursuant to the exercise of the oversubscription option, if any). The Broker Warrants will be exercisable into Common Shares of the Corporation at a price equal to the Offering Price for a period of 18 months from the Closing of the Offering.

The private placement is subject to regulatory acceptance, the satisfaction of other customary closing conditions and to the execution of a definitive agency agreement to be entered into among the Company and Salman. Any securities issued in conjunction with this financing will be subject to minimum resale restrictions for four months and a day from the date of Closing, which is anticipated to occur on or about February 29, 2012.

The net proceeds of this private placement will be used to fund the Company's Island Copper-Gold Project.
