VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 24, 2010) - Strachan Resources Ltd. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:SCN.P) has completed its initial public offering pursuant to a Prospectus dated November 24, 2010 (the "Prospectus") filed with the British Columbia and Alberta Securities Commissions. Effective at the opening of the market on December 24, 2010, the Company's common shares (the "Shares") will commence trading on Tier 2 of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV") under the symbol SCN.P. The Company issued 2,500,000 Shares for gross proceeds of $250,000. Canaccord Genuity Corp. acted as agent for the offering. As compensation for acting as agent, the Company paid a 10% cash commission, a corporate finance fee, and issued options to purchase up to 250,000 Shares of the Company at a price of $0.10 per Share for a period of two years from the date the Shares commenced trading on the TSXV.

The Company also granted stock options to officers and directors of the Company to purchase up to 500,000 Shares at a price of $0.10 per Share, exercisable until December 24, 2015.

The Company is designated as a Capital Pool Company by the TSXV. The Company has not commenced commercial operations and has no assets other than cash.
