Nevada Exploration Completes $422,000 First Tranche of Private Placement

August 21, 2009

Nevada Exploration Inc. (“NGE”) (TSX-V:NGE) today announced that it has closed, subject to TSX Venture Exchange final approval, the first tranche of the non-brokered private placement (“Offering”) previously announced on July 29, 2009.  NGE has issued 8,038,961 Units at a price of CAD$0.0525, for gross proceeds of CAD$422,045.  Each Unit consists of one common share and one-half of one non-transferable common share purchase warrant.  Each whole warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one common share at an exercise price of CAD $0.10 for a period of two years.  In the event that NGE’s volume weighted average share price averages at or above CAD $0.20 per share for 20 consecutive trading days on the TSX Venture Exchange, then NGE shall have the right to accelerate the warrant exercise period to the 30th day after the date on which NGE gives notice of acceleration.  All shares issued are subject to a four month hold period expiring December 21, 2009, as well as to any other re-sale restrictions imposed by applicable securities regulatory authorities.  No finder’s fees were paid in connection with this first tranche of the Offering, and no new Insiders were created.

The proceeds of this first tranche are sufficient to meet all of NGE’s upcoming claim maintenance fees, and will be used to do so.

In regards to the balance of the Offering, the TSX Venture Exchange has conditionally accepted to extend the price protection period to October 2, 2009, and NGE expects to close on the remainder of the Offering ($890,455) under the same conditions before this time.

The securities issued by NGE have not and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “1933 Act”), or the securities laws of any state of the United States, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption therefrom under the 1933 Act and the securities laws of all applicable states.


NGE is an exploration company focused on gold in Nevada.  NGE is led by an experienced and historically successful exploration management team.  NGE has developed a proprietary groundwater chemistry exploration technology to explore for gold in Nevada’s covered basins where traditional exploration techniques are challenged.  NGE has completed the first ever comprehensive survey of Nevada’s groundwater focused on discovering new gold deposits, and has demonstrated that Nevada’s gold deposits exhibit recognizable and measurable groundwater chemistry signatures.  NGE has used its proprietary technology to identify, acquire, and develop 11 new exploration properties exhibiting groundwater chemistry similar to known gold mines, and NGE is applying a standardized, staged exploration program at each property.

NGE has completed Phase I drilling at three of its properties and has discovered new, previously unknown, geochemically anomalous, hydrothermal systems at all three.  With these results, NGE has demonstrated that its groundwater chemistry exploration program can identify new, high quality exploration targets in previously unexplored areas.  Now that NGE has established groundwater chemistry as a valuable and important exploration technology, NGE plans to focus on matching its drill-ready properties with exploration partners.  By leaving the later, more-traditional exploration stages for our partners, NGE plans to focus on leveraging its investment in groundwater chemistry exploration technology to identify and advance more new exploration properties, and to establish itself as a source of high quality, drill ready exploration properties for the mining industry.
