Wildcat Exploration Ltd. Closes Private Placement

WINNIPEG, MANITOBA--(Marketwire - Jan. 12, 2011) - Wildcat Exploration Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:WEL) is pleased to announce that, subject to regulatory approval, it has closed a non-brokered private placement of flow-through units to raise gross proceeds of $450,000.

Each unit, issued at a price of $0.075, consists of one flow through common share of the Company and one-half of one share purchase warrant ("Warrant"). Each Warrant entitles the holder to acquire a non-flow through common share of the Company at a price of $0.11 per share during the 24 month period following closing. Pursuant to the private placement, six million units were issued.

The proceeds of the private placement will be used for the Company's exploration projects including its gold projects in the Rice Lake greenstone belt near Bissett, Manitoba, the Reed base metal and platinum group elements project in the Flin Flon–Snow Lake greenstone belt of Manitoba and the Burntwood nickel project in the Thompson nickel belt in Manitoba.

Commenting on the closing, John Knowles, Wildcat's President and CEO said, "With drill programs under way on our gold projects in the Rice Lake camp in Manitoba, we are pleased with investors' interest in the private placement, which will support work in Manitoba and Ontario in the coming months."

In connection with the private placement the Company paid finders' fees of $10,725 and issued 143,000 finders' warrants, each warrant being exercisable on terms identical to those of the Warrants. All securities distributed pursuant to the private placement are subject to a hold period of four months following closing.
