Nuinsco Announces Bought Deal Flow-Through Private Placement

Proceeds to be used to accelerate uranium and gold exploration in Saskatchewan and Ontario

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - March 27, 2007) -


Nuinsco Resources Limited ("Nuinsco" or the "Company") (TSX:NWI)( announces that it has entered into a "bought deal" private placement financing with Raymond James Ltd. (the "Underwriter") of 8,620,690 common shares to be issued on a "flow-through" basis (the "Flow-Through Shares") at $0.58 per share for gross proceeds of $5.0 million (the "Financing"). The Underwriter has the option to increase the size of the offering by up to an additional 1,724,138 flow-through shares at the issue price by giving notice to the Company at any time prior to closing, for additional gross proceeds of up to $1.0 million.

Closing of the Financing is expected to occur on or about April 12, 2007, subject to receipt of necessary regulatory approvals. Nuinsco plans to use the proceeds primarily to accelerate exploration of its Diabase Peninsula uranium property, its Prairie Lake uranium property and its Cameron Lake gold project.

Drilling by Nuinsco at the Diabase Peninsula property in Saskatchewan's Athabasca Basin has returned anomalous uranium values as well as key indicator minerals associated with uranium deposits in the Basin which, combined with past work, indicates that uranium mineralizing processes have been active on the property and points toward the local presence of unconformity style mineralization. Nuinsco was recently named as a leader in the race to find the next uranium "Super Deposit" in Saskatchewan's Athabasca Basin by the Northern Prospector magazine on the strength of its results, and recently completed a gravity survey in preparation for further drilling expected to begin in April.

At Prairie Lake near Marathon, Ont., the Company recently completed a surface sampling program in preparation for diamond drilling, with results ranging up to 0.08% U308 (1.656 lb/tonne). Prairie Lake hosts a near-surface historic (non-NI-43-101-compliant) uranium resource of over 180,000 tonnes grading 0.09% U3O8 (and 0.25% niobium) identified in limited historic exploration dating from the mid-1960s (see news releases dated December 1, 2006 and February 13, 2007).

The Cameron Lake gold project hosts a measured and indicated gold resource of 572,000 tonnes grading 6.51 g/t gold (120,300 ounces), comprised of a 187,000 tonne measured resource grading 6.77 g/t gold and a 385,000 tonne indicated resource grading 6.43 g/t gold. A further 1,012,000 tonne inferred resource grades 5.22 g/t gold (169,700 ounces). $24 million of underground development has been completed by previous operators, and Nuinsco has commissioned Wardrop Engineering Ltd. to obtain permits for the dewatering of the underground workings, in preparation for additional exploration and potential production at the advanced-stage gold project.

In addition, Nuinsco continues exploration programs in northeastern Turkey at its Elmalaan copper-zinc-gold-silver property and its Berta copper porphyry project. Results are pending and expected to be released shortly.
