NOT FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES OR THROUGH U.S. NEWSWIRES
Vancouver, British Columbia - Copper North Mining Corp. ("Copper North" or the "Company") (TSX.V:COL) announces that it plans to raise up to $300,000 by way of a non-brokered private placement (the "Private Placement") and that it plans to extend the exercise period of warrants issued pursuant to a private placement completed on April 24, 2014 by one year from the original expiry date.
The Private Placement will consist of the sale of up to 10 million units (the "Units") at a price of $0.03 per Unit, each Unit consisting of one common share of the Company (a "Share") and one warrant (a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one additional Share at a price of $0.05 for a period of 24 months from closing.
The Company intends to use the proceeds from the Private Placement toward completion of an updated Preliminary Economic Assessment on the Carmacks Project, and working capital and general corporate purposes.
The Private Placement is subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval and all securities will be subject to a four month hold period.
In addition to the financing described above, the Company plans to extend the term of the warrants issued pursuant to a private placement completed on April 24, 2014, of which 6,180,000 warrants remain outstanding (the "2014 Warrants"). Each of the 2014 Warrants has an exercise price of $0.07 and is set to expire on April 24, 2016. The Company has agreed, subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange, to extend the exercise period of the 2014 Warrants by one year to April 24, 2017. The other terms of the 2014 Warrants are to remain unchanged.

The securities have not been and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "U.S. Securities Act") or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold within the United States unless registered under the U.S. Securities Act and applicable securities laws or an exemption from such registration is available.
