Nuinsco Announces Rights Offering to Shareholders

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 11, 2009) - Nuinsco Resources Limited ("Nuinsco" or the "Company") (TSX:NWI) today announced the terms of a rights offering to existing shareholders to raise gross proceeds of up to approximately $2.38 million (the "Offering").

The Company will be offering to eligible holders of its outstanding common shares (each, a "Common Share") of record as at the close of business on March 24, 2009 (the "Record Date") approximately 190.9 million rights (each, a "Right") to subscribe for up to approximately 47.7 million units of the Company (each, a "Unit") on the terms set forth in a rights offering circular (the "Circular") to be mailed by the Company to shareholders (and which will also be available on SEDAR). Each such holder will receive one Right for each Common Share held on the Record Date. Four Rights will entitle the holder to purchase one Unit at a price of $0.05. Each Unit is comprised of one Common Share and one half of one Common Share purchase warrant (each whole Common Share purchase warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one Common Share at a price of $0.10 during the 12 month period beginning at 9:00 a.m. (Toronto time) on April 23, 2010 and ending at 4:00 p.m. (Toronto time) on April 23, 2011. The Rights will expire at 4:00 p.m. (Toronto time) on April 22, 2009. Shareholders who exercise all of their Rights will also be entitled to acquire additional shares pursuant to an additional subscription privilege to be provided for under the Offering, the terms of which are described in the Circular.

The Rights will be listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange (the "TSX") and are expected to commence trading on March 20, 2009. The TSX has also approved the listing of the Common Shares issuable upon exercise of the Rights and the Warrants.

The Rights and underlying Units are not being offered to, and the Rights may not be exercised by, persons who are residents of any jurisdiction other than each of the provinces and territories of Canada, the Bahamas or the Cayman Islands. Reference is made to the section in the Circular entitled "Ineligible Shareholders".

Net proceeds of the Offering will be approximately $1.98 million (excluding any potential proceeds from the exercise of the Warrants), assuming that all of the Rights are exercised. The Company intends to use the proceeds of the Offering towards the repayment of a portion of the bridge loan previously announced on January 23, 2009 and for general corporate purposes.
