Northair Announces $4,000,000 Private Placement

March 1, 2011

International Northair Mines Ltd. (TSXV: INM) (the "Company" or "Northair") intends to complete a non-brokered private placement of up to $4,000,000 consisting of 13,333,333 Units at a price of $0.30 per Unit. Each Unit shall be comprised of one common share and one half warrant. Each warrant will entitle the holder to acquire one common share of Northair at a price of $0.50 for a period of 12 months immediately following the closing date. The warrants will be subjected to an accelerated exercise provision if the share price of Northair trades at or above $0.75 for 10 or more consecutive trading days.

Northair will pay a finder's fee in cash or shares, at the election of the Company, of 5% of the proceeds raised, or 5% of the number of Units sold, respectively, through the efforts of the Finder. The Finder will also receive finder's warrants (the "Finder's Warrants") equal to 5% of the Units placed by the finder. The Finder's Warrants will have the same terms as the warrants forming part of the Units and be exercisable into common shares at a price of $0.50 for a period of 12 months immediately following the closing date.

Net proceeds of this private placement will be used to further the Company's exploration projects, fund possible new acquisitions and for general working capital.

The Units will be offered and sold by way of private placement exemptions in all provinces and jurisdictions of Canada, other than Quebec, and into jurisdictions outside of Canada and the US.

This private placement share offering is subject to, among other things, receipt by Northair of all necessary regulatory approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange and a hold period of 4 months for all issued securities.
