CENTRAL ANNOUNCES $750,000 FINANCING

Central Resources Corp. has negotiated a non-brokered private placement of $750,000 through the sale of 3.75 million flow-through units at a price of 20 cents per unit.

Each flow through unit will consist of one flow-through common share and one-half of one non-flow-through share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one additional non-flow-through common share of the company for a period of 12 months from closing at an exercise price of 40 cents. The company may accelerate the expiry of the warrants (following the expiry of the four-month hold period) if the 20-day volume-weighted average trading price of the shares on the TSX Venture Exchange (or such other exchange on which the shares may be listed) exceeds 60 cents in which event the warrant will expire 30 calendar days after the date that the company provides notice to the holders.

The company will pay a cash finder’s fee equal to 6 per cent of the gross proceeds raised in the private placement. The company will also issue that number of finder’s warrants equal to 10 per cent of the number of units sold under the private placement. Each finder’s warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one non-flow-through common share of the company for a period of 12 months from closing at an exercise price of 40 cents. The finder’s warrant will be subject to the same acceleration provisions as the flow-through units sold in the private placement.

The proceeds from the private placement will be used for exploration work on the company’s Yukon mineral properties. The 2011 exploration program is planned to consist of soil sampling and trenching to follow up gold soil anomalies identified last year. A follow-up diamond drill program is planned for fall.

Closing is subject to a due diligence condition and the acceptance of the TSX-V. All securities issued under the private placement will be subject to a four-month hold period.

With respect to the Pacific Ridge Mariposa, Gold Cap and Polar/Steward properties located within the Yukon’s South Klondike-White Gold area, additional assay results from trench sampling and soil sampling surveys remain pending, and will be reported when received and compiled during the balance of this year. Plans for the Pacific Ridge 2011 exploration program are under way, additional exploration staff have been engaged and the company will soon issue a request for tenders from diamond drilling contractors.

Pacific Ridge’s disclosure of a technical or scientific nature in this press release has been reviewed and approved by George Norman, PGeo, Pacific Ridge’s exploration manager, who serves as a qualified person under the definition of National Instrument 43-101. Quality-assurance and quality-control procedures include the systematic insertion of blanks, duplicates and standards into trench sample sequence. Samples are placed in sealed bags and shipped directly to ACME Labs’ preparatory laboratory in Whitehorse prior to gold fire assay fusion by ICP-ES analysis. The Mariposa property is an early-stage exploration property and does not contain any mineral resources as defined by National Instrument 43-101.

Arcus announces flow-through financing and expansion of Yukon land package

Arcus Development Group Inc. (the “Company”) announces that subject to regulatory approval, it will carry out a non-brokered private placement of flow-through shares. Up to 7,500,000 flow-through shares will be sold at $0.20 per share for proceeds of $1,500,000. Funds from the placement will be used to finance 2010 work on the Company’s projects in the Yukon.

The Company’s Yukon gold projects consist of the Green Gulch and the Touleary properties, immediately adjacent to the Underworld Resources White Gold property and the Dan Man property, immediately adjacent to the Kaminak Gold Coffee property. Maps showing the locations of the properties can be viewed on the Arcus website.

The Company also announces that it has increased the size of its Dan Man property through the addition of 203 new mineral claims. These new claims are located immediately north of the Company’s original Dan Man claims and were acquired through staking. “Based on the encouraging results from Kaminak’s initial drilling on its Coffee claims, Arcus has significantly increased the size of its Dan Man claim block and is accelerated its 2010 exploration programs in the White Gold area,” reported Ian Talbot, the Company President.

Phase one of the Company’s 2010 Yukon program will focus on mechanically trenching soil and rock geochemical anomalies identified at each of the Dan Man, Green Gulch and Touleary properties in 2009. The phase two program will consist of the drill testing of targets identified during the stage one trenching program.

Arcus Closes Property Acquisition and Financing

Arcus Development has closed its previously announced non-brokered flow-through private placement. A total of 4,652,843 units were sold at a price of 13 cents per unit for gross proceeds of $604,870. The units consisted of one flow-through common share and one warrant. Each warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional flow-through common share at a price of 20 cents at any time on or before Aug. 12, 2010. All securities issued as part of this private placement are subject to a hold period until Dec. 13, 2009.

Of the 4,652,843 units sold as part of the placement, 2,692,306 units were purchased by the MineralFields Group through MineralFields 2009 Super Flow Through Limited Partnerships 1 through 4. The MineralFields Group is based in Toronto, Ont., and has business offices at 210 — 1110 Finch Ave. West. The 2,692,306 shares purchased by the MineralFields Group as part of the units represent 14.64 per cent of the issued and outstanding common shares of Arcus. Prior to this private placement, the MineralFields Group did not own any Arcus shares.

Pursuant to the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange, shareholder approval is required in advance of the completion of a private placement where the placement will result in the creation of a person or group controlling greater than 20 per cent of the issued shares of a listed company (a control person). The Arcus shares that may be issued following the exercise of warrants acquired by the MineralFields Group under the placement could potentially result in the MineralFields Group becoming a control person of Arcus. To prevent the MineralFields Group from becoming a control person of Arcus without prior shareholder approval, the MineralFields Group and Limited Market Dealer Inc. have provided the TSX Venture Exchange and Arcus with an undertaking not to exercise any Arcus warrants if doing so will result in the MineralFields Group becoming a control person of Arcus.

Subject to the foregoing undertaking, the MineralFields Group has purchased Arcus shares for investment purposes only. The MineralFields Group may increase or decrease its investment in Arcus depending on market conditions and other relevant factors.

Cash finders’ fees of $21,300 and $1,280 were paid to Limited Market Dealer Inc. and Canaccord Capital Corporation, respectively, related to the sale of a portion of the placement. Limited Market Dealer Inc. and Canaccord Capital Corporation were also granted 218,461 and 9,840 finders’ options respectively. If exercised, the finders’ options entitle the finders to receive one Arcus share at a price of 13-1/2 of a share purchase warrant. Each whole finders’ warrant entitles the finders to purchase one Arcus share at a price of 20 cents. The finders’ options and the underlying finders’ warrants may be exercised at any time on or before Aug. 12, 2010.

Arcus also announces that it has received TSX Venture Exchange acceptance of its option to acquire a 50-per-cent interest in the Dawson gold project. The Dawson gold project consists of four claim blocks covering an area of approximately 77 square kilometres adjacent to or near the Underworld Resources Inc. White gold and Black Fox properties in west-central Yukon.

The proceeds from the private placement and any proceeds from the exercise of the warrants will be used to finance the company’s work programs on the Dawson gold project. Proceeds for the exercise of any of the finders’ options and underlying finders’ warrants will be used as general working capital.

Work programs on the four claim blocks comprising the Dawson gold project are currently under way or will commence shortly. Preliminary results will be announced as they are received by Arcus.

Northern Tiger Closes Private Placement and Announces Program

Northern Tiger Resources has raised a total of $1,095,000 and is planning a significant expansion to its previously announced $1-million exploration program. The Company is now planning a program totalling $1,750,000.

Northern Tiger intends to drill up to 12 diamond drill holes (2,600 metres) at Sonora Gulch. The primary focus of the drill program will continue to be on the Nightmusic Zone, where 2008 drilling intercepted 26.6 metres grading 4.96 g/t gold, 11.9 g/t silver and 0.23% copper. Surface exploration and geophysical programs will also be expanded, including exploration for Minto-style deposits on the properties Northern Tiger obtained from its exploration alliance partner Minto Exploration Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Capstone Mining Corp.

We have really just begun exploring what we believe is a large mineralized system at Sonora Gulch, and are pleased to be able to expand our 2009 program”, says Greg Hayes, President of Northern Tiger. “The additional work should allow us to build on our previous exploration success and continue to demonstrate the potential of the Sonora Gulch property to host significant gold mineralization. In addition, we are committed to achieving our goal of advancing at least one Minto-style target to the drill-ready stage for 2010.”

On August 17, 2009 the Company closed a non-brokered private placement of 3,650,000 units (“Units”) at a price of $0.20 per Unit and 1,825,000 class “A” common shares issued as “flow-through shares” under the Income Tax Act (Canada) (“FT Share”) at a price of $0.20 per FT Share for aggregate gross proceeds of $1,095,000. Each Unit consisted of one class “A” common share of Northern Tiger (“Common Share”) and one transferable share purchase warrant (“Warrant”). Each Warrant entitles the holder to acquire an additional Common Share at a price of $0.30 at any time within 24 months of issuance.

The FT Shares and Units were sold to qualified purchasers in reliance upon exemptions from the prospectus and registration requirements of applicable securities legislation. The proceeds from the sale of FT Shares will be used to incur expenditures which qualify as Canadian Exploration Expenses, and will be used to explore Northern Tiger’s Yukon mineral properties. The proceeds from the sale of the Units will be used to explore Northern Tiger’s Yukon mineral properties and for general corporate expenses. The FT Shares, the Common Shares and Warrants comprising the Units and Common Shares issuable upon exercise of the Warrants are subject to a four (4) month restricted period which expires on December 18, 2009.

In connection with the private placement and in accordance with regulatory requirements, the Company paid $3,750 cash as Finder’s Fees to an arm’s length party. The TSX Venture Exchange has conditionally accepted the private placement and finder’s fees.
