Wildcat Exploration Ltd. Retains CHF Investor Relations

WINNIPEG, MANITOBA--(Marketwire - Dec. 10, 2010) - Wildcat Exploration Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:WEL) today announced that CHF Investor Relations has been retained to provide investor relations and market-making services to the Company effective immediately. CHF is a highly regarded Canadian investor relations firm headquartered in Toronto operating under the same management for the past eighteen years.

"We are embarking on a very active winter drilling season on three of our gold projects on the Rice Lake greenstone belt and our Burntwood project in the prolific Thompson nickel belt. For this reason we feel that new investor relations initiatives, launched now and guided by CHF Investor Relations, are likely to positively engage the investment community and set the stage for Wildcat Exploration to leap ahead in 2011 and beyond," explained John Knowles, President and CEO of Wildcat.

Subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval, the services agreement for investor relations and market-making is for a term of 24 months while subject to a mutually satisfactory review of services conducted in the seventh month. Anytime during the second year of the Contract cancellation may be tendered upon three months' termination notice. CHF will receive up to $7,500 per month in fees plus reimbursement of expenses. CHF has been granted a total of 1,500,000 options with 500,000 exercisable at $0.12; 500,000 exercisable at $0.18; and 500,000 exercisable at $0.30. The options expire in five years and vest in stages over twelve months with no more than one quarter of the options vesting in any three-month period. Upon termination of the contract, CHF will have 30 days to exercise any vested options.

Under the agreement, CHF will also implement its Market Liquidity Program, more commonly referred to as market-making, through its Calgary office. This Program will be undertaken by CHF through a registered broker, Mackie Research Corporation, in compliance with the guidelines set out in Policy 3.4 of the TSX Venture Exchange Corporate Finance Manual. A further announcement will follow when market-making is ready to commence in the New Year. 

Prior to the grant of options outlined above, CHF had no direct or indirect interest in the Company or its securities.
