Trueclaim Exploration Inc. Announces Non-Brokered Private Placement to Raise $1 Million for Exploration Program for Claims Recently Acquired Adjacent to its Scadding Gold Project

ST. THOMAS, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 5, 2009) - Trueclaim Exploration Inc. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:TRM) is pleased to announce that it has arranged a non-brokered private placement (the "Private Placement") with MineralFields group to raise $1,000,000 through the issuance of 4,000,000 flow-through units (each a "Flow-Through Unit"). Each unit will consist of one common share in the capital of the Company, to be issued at $.25 per Flow-Through Unit on a flow-through basis under the provisions of the Income Tax Act (Canada), and one-half common share purchase warrant. Each full warrant will have a term of 24 months from the date of issuance (the "Expiry Date") and will entitle the holder to purchase one common share of the Company at an exercise price of $0.30 per share at any time on or before 12 months from the date of issuance and thereafter at an exercise price of $0.35 per share at any time until the Expiry Date.

"We are very pleased to be able to continue our relationship with MineralFields Group," said Eric Plexman, CEO. "This is an important milestone in the growth of Trueclaim Exploration Inc. and we look forward to working with MineralFields Group as we develop our holdings across Canada."

The Company will use the funds on a targeted exploration program that it is preparing on its recently acquired 31,832 acres (12,882 hectares) in Scadding, Davis and Street Townships in Ontario. All of the ground, except for approximately 3,489 acres, is contiguous to the Company's Scadding Gold Project located approximately 50 kilometres northeast of Sudbury, Ontario. The new claims extend the borders of the Scadding Project over an irregular area approximately 11, 15 and 4 kilometres to the south, east and west respectively of the former Scadding gold mine located on the original part of the Scadding Project. Trueclaim's consulting geologist, Mr. Bob Komarechka, P.Geo., has noted that some of the new claims lie along anomalous electromagnetometer trends and are on strike with previously mined gold mineralization and may represent a continuation of the geological zones responsible for the original Scadding deposits. "Historic gold, nickel, copper and PGM (platinum group metal) occurences and geophysical anomalies occur on these claims. In addition, several old shafts and pits are located on these claims," noted Mr. Komarechka.

The Company considers the new funding and the planned exploration program significant advancements in its efforts to conduct a fresh assessment of the regional geology in an area with a long history of gold exploration and production, and to properly explore the targets and showings on the Company's extensive land-holdings.

The Company will pay a finder's fee to arm's length parties in connection with the Private Placement, in cash and/or securities of the Company, in accordance with the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange. The Private Placement and the payment of any finder's fees in connection with the Private Placement are subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
