Northland Buys Anglo American's Royalty and Back-In Right in Swedish IOGC Projects

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 12, 2007) - Northland Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:NAU)(OSLO:NAUR)(FRANKFURT:NBS) is pleased to announce that it has reached an agreement with Anglo American Exploration BV to buy Anglo's 2.5% royalty interest and back-in rights on two permits in northern Sweden which host the Stora Sahavaara and Tapuli projects, and a number of other iron oxide, copper, gold (IOCG) targets.

Northland will pay Anglo US $3.65-million for Anglo's royalty and back-in rights in the two exploration permits, together known as the Pajala properties - which cover approximately 18,000 hectares of ground.

Northland signed an option agreement on the permits with Anglo in December 2004 and completed and exercised its option to acquire 100% ownership of the permits in January of 2007. Northland is currently advancing the Stora Sahavaara and Tapuli magnetite projects towards feasibility study.

Buck Morrow, the President of Northland, said: "The buyout of Anglo's royalty and back-in rights is something we've been thinking about for a while and we're very happy to have completed successful negotiations with Anglo. Tapuli and Stora Sahavaara are important projects for Northland which we now own 100% free of any royalties or back-in rights. Anglo has been a good partner to Northland and I'd like to thank its exploration management for their important contribution to our work in northern Sweden."
