(Thomson Reuters ONE) - August 27, 2009: Northland Resources Inc. ("Northland") is pleased toannounce that it will conduct a strategic review of opportunities forNorthland's non-ferrous projects in Sweden. The projects include theBarsele gold project, which has NI 43-101 compliant gold resources of367,749 oz in the indicated category and 398,630 oz in the inferredcategory and a granted Exploitation Concession, the Norra VMSprospect, and a number of promising early-stage projects in theimmediate vicinity of Barsele and Norra.The strategic review has been initiated by the Board of Northland inorder to determine how best to realize the significant value ofNorthland's non-ferrous projects, through a cooperation or sale ofthe assets. There was been significant interest in these assets andPareto Securities AS has been retained as financial advisors withrespect to potential transactions.Mr. Buck Morrow, President and CEO of Northland, commented, "TheBoard of Northland believes that the non-ferrous projects havesignificant value. Barsele has a NI 43-101 compliant resourceestimate and a valid Exploitation (Mining) Concession, and Northlandhas performed extensive drilling, metallurgy, geochemical andgeophysical studies on the projects over the last years. However, asNorthland is very focused on developing its iron ore projects inKaunisvaara and Hannukainen in Sweden and Finland, the Board ofNorthland believe that the value will be better reflected through acooperation with, or outright sale to, an entity that can devote itsresources to developing the Swedish non-ferrous assets into miningoperations. Northland will evaluate proposals from mining companieswith a focus on maximizing shareholder value. Northland will throughthese potential transactions be better able to focus its efforts ondeveloping the Kaunisvaara and Hannukainen projects into long termmining operations in stable EU countries."A further announcement regarding the strategic review will be made indue course.Background on BarseleOn April 12, 2006, Northland completed a NI 43-101 compliant resourcecalculation for the Barsele gold project (see press release datedMarch 1, 2006).
