Williams Creek Explorations Limited Announces Flow Through Share Offering

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 7, 2010) - Williams Creek Explorations Limited ("the Company," "WCX," or "Williams Creek") (TSX VENTURE:WCX) reports that it has engaged Loewen, Ondaatje, McCutcheon Limited to conduct a brokered private placement of 4,324,325 Flow Through Shares at a price of 0.37 CAD per share (the "Offering") for gross proceeds of 1,600,000 CAD. The proceeds from the offering will be used in order to fund Canadian Exploration Expenses associated with the exploration of Williams Creek's crown grants in the Barkerville area of British Columbia.

"Williams Creek has put together a coherent strategy to explore its properties in Barkerville and is working with leading geologists with very strong local knowledge," said Michael Sonnenreich, Chairman and CEO of Williams Creek. "This financing will help our team advance Williams Creek's exploration and follow up on the promising results from past drilling campaigns."

Williams Creek has approval to launch a diamond drilling program on its crown granted mineral properties adjacent to Barkerville, British Columbia. The permit, which will last until the end of 2011, provides for up to 72 holes at 29 locations (NR, October 21, 2010). The Company will renounce the resultant Canadian Exploration Expenses during 2011.

"As I have said before, Williams Creek's business plan has three parts: 1) Exploring its existing holdings, 2) participating in equity and joint venture agreements, and 3) engaging in royalty agreements and financings," said Mr. Sonnenreich. "Our planned drilling program in Barkerville is a clear example of our intention to vigorously explore Williams Creek's historical holdings. I am very much looking forward to our planned drilling campaign during spring and summer of 2011."

There is an over-allotment of 275,000 CAD in the event that the Offering is over-subscribed. Loewen, Ondaatje, McCutcheon Limited will be paid a cash fee equal to 6.0% of the gross proceeds raised in the Offering and receive non-transferable options to acquire common shares in an amount equal to 6.0% of the number of Flow Through Shares sold. Closing of the Offering is anticipated to be on or about December 21, 2010.

The Offering:

All securities issued pursuant to the private placements will be subject to a four month hold period. Completion of the offerings is subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions, including TSX Venture Exchange acceptance of the offerings.
