October 11, 2012 Vancouver, BC -- Northcliff Resources Ltd. ("Northcliff" or the "Company") (TSX: NCF) announces an update on current studies underway on its 100% owned Sisson Tungsten-Molybdenum Project located in New Brunswick, Canada.

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.


Over the past several months, Northcliff has begun the process of engaging with potential strategic partners to assess their interest in participating in the Sisson Project. The Company expects that this process will continue through the end of 2012 and into 2013.

Northcliff President and CEO Christopher Zahovskis said, "I am pleased with the progress that has been made since Northcliff started work on the Sisson Project just two years ago. We set out an ambitious schedule at that time with an overall objective of completing the feasibility study by the fall of this year. With the upswing in the tungsten market over the same period, we have remained focused on advancing Sisson into the feasibility stage as quickly as possible to provide tremendous potential value to our shareholders."
