Feasibility Study

The Sisson Project Feasibility Study, which is being prepared by Samuel Engineering, Inc. of Denver, Colorado, is nearing completion. The Company plans to announce the results by mid-November 2012, following which the Company will have 45 days to file the corresponding NI 43-101 technical report on SEDAR (www.sedar.com).

Environmental Assessment and Permitting

The Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) report, which is being prepared by Stantec Inc., of Fredericton, New Brunswick, remains on track for completion in November 2012 and subsequent submission to both Federal and Provincial governments. Concurrent with the review of the EIA, the Company plans to begin preparing for permit and mining license applications.

Financing

Northcliff Completes Earn-In Obligations For Its 70% Interest In The Sisson Project



June 15, 2012 Vancouver, BC -- Northcliff Resources Ltd. ("Northcliff") (TSX: NCF) announces that it has fulfilled its earn-in obligations for a 70% interest in the Sisson tungsten-molybdenum project ("Sisson Project") under the Sisson Development Joint Venture Agreement ("JVA") with joint venture partner, Geodex Minerals Ltd. ("Geodex") (TSX.V: GXM).

Under the terms of the JVA, Northcliff was required to fund the lesser of (i) $17,000,000 in Sisson JV expenditures (less $580,000 in minority interest acquisition costs and $1 million in common shares subscribed for in Geodex), or (ii) the actual amount of expenditures incurred to produce a feasibility study report and to commence mine construction on the basis contemplated in the feasibility study report. Northcliff has now completed the requirement and secured the 70% interest.

"This is yet another major milestone for Northcliff in advancing the Sisson Project in New Brunswick and achieving our goal to be the next major tungsten producer in Canada," said Christopher Zahovskis, President and CEO of Northcliff. "In just over 19 months, Northcliff has spent $15.4 million on the Sisson Project in direct project development costs. This investment by Northcliff accounts for roughly 55% of the total $28.1 million spent on the Sisson Project since Geodex first acquired the property in 2004.

"Importantly, a significant portion of our expenditures have been incurred within the Province of New Brunswick, and this will continue."

Zahovskis added, "Our engineering teams are progressing with the feasibility program and we look forward to announcing the study results for a bulk tonnage, open pit mine by the end of Q3 of this year. With a measured and indicated resource of 383 million tonnes (see Northcliff's announcement on May 17, 2012), the Sisson Project has the potential to be a long life mining operation spanning over 30 years and producing significant amounts of tungsten and molybdenum."

"We are very pleased with Sisson's potential to contribute significantly to non-Chinese sourced tungsten supply in the near term," stated Robert Dickinson, Chairman of Northcliff, "particularly during this period of resilient tungsten prices and demand growth."

The Company also finalized the Terms of Reference for the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) with federal and provincial government agencies in April. The EIA Report drafting is underway and remains targeted for submission by the end of Q3 2012. The federal project approval process is harmonized with the Province of New Brunswick process. In the meantime, Northcliff will begin preparing permit applications in the upcoming months.

On May 10, 2012, Northcliff announced that it signed a definitive purchase agreement with Geodex to acquire the remaining 30% interest in the Sisson project. The acquisition remains subject to approval by special resolution of Geodex shareholders at Geodex's special shareholders' meeting scheduled for June 18, 2012, and final TSX and TSX Venture Exchange approval.

Northcliff Resources Signs Letter Agreement With Geodex Minerals To Consolidate Ownership Of The Sisson Project



April 18, 2012 Vancouver, BC -- Northcliff Resources Ltd. ("Northcliff") (TSX: NCF) announces that it has signed a letter agreement with Geodex Minerals Ltd. ("Geodex") (TSX.V: GXM) to acquire Geodex's 30% interest in the Sisson Tungsten-Molybdenum Project in New Brunswick in consideration for cash, a return of Geodex shares Northcliff owns for cancellation and the issuance of common shares of Northcliff (the "Acquisition").

In October 2010, Northcliff acquired a 70% interest in the Sisson Project from Geodex, subject to investing up to $17 million in exploration, feasibility and project costs. Northcliff expects to complete its $17 million investment in early May 2012.

Northcliff will issue 16,003,700 common shares to Geodex and pay $1 million in cash to acquire Geodex's 30% interest in the Sisson Project. As part of the Acquisition, Northcliff will also return to Geodex for cancellation the 3,333,333 common shares of Geodex that Northcliff purchased for $0.30 per share. The Acquisition is expected to be completed by Geodex using a plan of arrangement which will include the authorization for the Geodex Board to establish the terms of any future distribution of the Northcliff common shares to Geodex shareholders. If Northcliff shares are retained by Geodex, they will be escrowed with a mutually agreed third party until the commencement of mine construction but in any event, no longer than three years from the closing date.

"We believe that consolidating ownership under Northcliff will be a positive development for the efficient advancement of the Sisson Project in a manner that benefits both sets of shareholders and we believe that this transaction will provide Geodex investors, along with Northcliff investors, with the opportunity to participate in the development of the Sisson Project," said Northcliff President & CEO Chris Zahovskis. "With an estimated working capital of $14 million after completion of the Acquisition, Northcliff maintains a strong financial position to meet the ongoing project development needs in the near term. Northcliff's corporate and project teams remain wholly focused on advancing the Sisson Project toward the completion of a Feasibility Study and initiating permitting later this year, including obtaining the project financing necessary to complete detailed engineering and pending permit approval, to initiate the construction phase in 2013."

Geodex President & CEO Mark Fields stated that "Geodex spent considerable time considering the alternatives to maximize the benefit to Geodex shareholders of its 30% Sisson interest. The Acquisition was unanimously approved by Geodex's Board of Directors as it will provide several advantages to Geodex shareholders. A key one was the continued participation in the future growth of the Sisson Project through the Northcliff share ownership while maintaining their current Geodex share position. The Acquisition also eliminates the dilution and financing risk if Geodex were to meet its ongoing 30% Sisson financial commitment under the existing joint venture. In addition, the immediate cash injection will allow Geodex to focus on its New Brunswick exploration assets and particularly the Dungarvon tungsten-molybdenum-tin project which provides promising discovery potential through a drill program this summer."

The Acquisition is subject to customary terms and conditions including approvals of the shareholders of Geodex and Northcliff, the TSX, the TSX Venture Exchange and the Supreme Court of British Columbia. Completion of the Acquisition is targeted for the end of the second quarter of 2012.
Fields concluded by noting "We have been very pleased with the work Northcliff has performed to date, as manager under the joint venture, and their proven ability to advance the Sisson Project. This will be crucial to the continued success and value addition we expect to occur."

Feasibility Study for Sisson Tungsten-Molybdenum Project on track for completion in Q3 2012



March 5, 2012 Vancouver, B.C. -- Northcliff Resources Ltd. ("Northcliff" or the "Company") (TSX:NCF) announces an update on its 2012 work program at the Sisson Tungsten-Molybdenum Project in New Brunswick, Canada, as well as a report on the progress of the Feasibility Study for proposed open-pit, high-volume tungsten and molybdenum production.

"Following a productive field season in 2011 and a robust start to the 2012 year for the Company and the tungsten market, I'm pleased to confirm that the Sisson Project Feasibility Study is advancing on schedule, with an anticipated completion date in Q3 2012," said Northcliff President & CEO Chris Zahovskis. "Our engineering teams are making excellent progress on feasibility-level designs for the project, while parallel environmental studies are moving forward equally well. Our intent is to submit an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) report for the Sisson Project in Q3 2012 and begin project permitting also around the same time".

Northcliff recently facilitated public review of the draft Terms of Reference (TOR) for its EIA report through open houses in local communities, and anticipates receiving final TOR in March. The Sisson Project EIA report will be submitted to both federal and provincial government agencies to enable an efficient and harmonized federal/provincial environmental assessment and project approval process.

In addition to its engineering, environmental and technical study programs, Northcliff is advancing consultation and engagement activities with project stakeholders and New Brunswick First Nations. "As a company, we recognize the importance of local involvement in our projects, and are investing significant time and effort to ensure that we develop positive, respectful and mutually beneficial relationships with local communities, stakeholder groups, First Nations communities and organizations," Zahovskis said. "We're pleased with the relationships and dialogues established to date, and are optimistic that we can advance the Sisson Project in a manner that optimizes benefits for nearby communities and all the people of New Brunswick, while respecting local interests and concerns."

Beginning in Q2 of this year, Northcliff management, on behalf of the Sisson Project joint venture, will commence discussions with potential financing partners -- including international banking institutions, smelter groups and others -- to outline and advance a project financing strategy.

"We're encouraged by recent announcements of project finance agreements and strategic partnerships on preferable terms for comparable tungsten mineral projects at the feasibility stage of development," said Northcliff Chief Financial Officer Bryce Hamming. "We expect the market appetite for larger capital investments in North American and European tungsten properties to continue, given the strong price outlook for tungsten and ongoing tungsten export restrictions from China, the world's largest producer. Given its advanced stage of development, its anticipated globally significant output of 6-8% of current world tungsten demand, and its potential for a long mine life, we are confident that Sisson will emerge as a high quality tungsten asset that captures the interest of the international investment community."

Infrastructure availability is an important competitive advantage for the Sisson Project. The deposit is readily accessed by road and railway from all parts of New Brunswick, including deep sea ports to the north (Belledune) and south (Saint John). The New Brunswick Power Transmission Corporation recently completed a review of potential power sources for the proposed mine, and concluded that power could be supplied via a 42 km high voltage transmission line built by New Brunswick Power. Discussions concerning development of power infrastructure are progressing well, and the development is expected to match Northcliff's timeline for the Sisson Project with construction anticipated to begin in the latter part of 2013.

"We've always maintained that the Canadian province of New Brunswick represents a preferred jurisdiction for modern mine development," Zahovskis said. "It possesses a rich mining history and culture that includes the Bathurst mining camp to the north and the Sussex potash mine to the south, as well as a skilled and available workforce, unparalleled infrastructure availability and a mature and stable regulatory environment."

Zahovskis noted a recent report published by the Fraser Institute that identifies New Brunswick as the most attractive jurisdiction in the world for mineral exploration and development.

About Northcliff

Northcliff is a mineral resource company associated with Hunter Dickinson Inc. (HDI), a diversified, global mining group with a 25 year history of mineral development success. Northcliff is focused on advancing the feasibility stage Sisson Tungsten-Molybdenum Project, located in New Brunswick, Canada, to production. Northcliff has acquired a 70% interest in the Sisson Project from Geodex Minerals Ltd., subject to investing up to $17 million in exploration, feasibility and project costs.

The advanced stage Sisson Project has excellent potential for near-term production of tungsten and molybdenum. Its location near roads, rail and tidewater on the eastern seaboard of North America provides Sisson with key logistical advantages over its peer group. New Brunswick is a stable jurisdiction with a long tradition of mineral and resource development, and a well-established regulatory system. By advancing Sisson, Northcliff will become one of North America's first major tungsten producers, greatly increasing supply to the large North American and European markets where demand far outstrips supply.

President & CEO Chris Zahovskis said: "Northcliff has reached a number of key project milestones over the past year.

Northcliff is focused on advancing the feasibility-stage Sisson Tungsten-Molybdenum Project, located in New Brunswick, Canada, to production. Northcliff has acquired a 70% interest in the Sisson Project from Geodex Minerals Ltd., subject to investing up to $17 million in exploration, feasibility and project costs.

The advanced stage Sisson Project has excellent potential for near-term production of tungsten and molybdenum. Its location near roads, rail and tidewater on the eastern seaboard of North America provides Sisson with key logistical advantages over its peer group. New Brunswick is a stable jurisdiction with a long tradition of mineral and resource development, and a well-established regulatory system. By advancing Sisson, Northcliff will become one of North America's first major tungsten producers, greatly increasing supply to the large North American and European markets where demand far outstrips supply.
