Northern Sun Extends Term of Loan Agreement with Strategic Partner Jien International Investment Inc. and Advises on Status of TSX Listing

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 01/28/14 -- Northern Sun Mining Corp. (TSX: NSC) (formerly Liberty Mines Inc.) ("Northern Sun" or the "Company") has entered into a revised loan agreement with Jien International Investment Inc. ("JIIL"), its strategic partner and largest shareholder, to consolidate all of the outstanding debt and to extend the maturity date of all amounts owing to JIIL to December 31, 2015. Pursuant to the loan agreement, JIIL has reaffirmed its commitment to continue to support the Company as needed during 2014, until such time as the Company becomes cash flow positive. The amended loan agreement confirms that pursuant to the credit facility Northern Sun owes JIIL $118,311,604, consisting of $107,849,060 in principal and $10,462,544 in interest. The amount outstanding under the loan will incur an interest rate of 10%, will be secured against all of the assets of the Company and will mature on December 31, 2015.

Recently, the Company settled $1,254,000 in debt owing to JIIL through a shares-for-debt transaction and intends to settle an additional $878,500 in debt owing to JIIL by way a shares for debt settlement. (See Press Releases dated October 23, 2013 and January 14, 2014).

David Rigg, President and CEO of Northern Sun, commented, "We are extremely pleased to have finalized the loan extension with JIIL and remain confident that through the implementation of our turnaround plan, the Company will be in a position to become cash flow positive in the near term. We are actively working with JIIL to identify additional assets of merit for acquisition and continue to work towards the completion of the Snow Lake acquisition in order to significantly expand our resource base."

Completion of the transaction remains subject to receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals and shareholder approval, where necessary. JIIL is a related party of Northern Sun as it holds 60% of the issued and outstanding common shares of the Company and has common directors. The Corporation shall seek the requisite minority shareholder approval in the event that such approval is required.

In addition, the Company announces that the Listing Committee of Toronto Stock Exchange (the "TSX") has decided to delist the common shares of the Company effective February 19, 2014 from the TSX due to its failure to meet certain listing requirements. The Company is considering filing an appeal in accordance with the requirements of the TSX to repeal the decision of the Listing Committee. In order to ensure there is an appropriate market available for shareholders of Northern Sun, the Company has submitted a listing application to the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV") to have the Company's common shares listed and publicly traded on the TSXV. The Company will be providing shareholders with updates on both the appeal with the TSX and listing procedure with the TSXV in the coming weeks.
