Kirrin Resources Announces $1,500,000 Private Placement

 Calgary, Canada: Kirrin Resources Inc. today announced that it is proceeding with a non-brokered financing of up to 30,000,000 units ("Units") by way of private placement at a purchase price of $0.05 per Unit for aggregate consideration of up to $1,500,000 (the "Private Placement"). Each Unit will consist of one common share in the share capital of Kirrin ("Common Share") and one-half of one Common Share purchase warrant ("Warrant"). Each full Warrant will be exercisable into one Common Share at a price of $0.10 per Common Share for 18 months from the date of issuance subject to earlier expiry in certain circumstances. The Private Placement is subject to all necessary regulatory approvals, including the conditional approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange").

The proceeds from the Private Placement will be used for exploration on Kirrin's portfolio of rare earth elements and uranium properties and for general working capital purposes. The Private Placement is being offered in various Canadian provinces as well as other selected jurisdictions. It is expected to close on or about November 23, 2010 or such other date agreed by Kirrin and approved by the Exchange. The securities issued pursuant to the Private Placement shall be subject to a four month hold period under applicable securities laws.

Kirrin may retain agents in connection with the sale of Units and such agents may receive from Kirrin a cash fee of up to 8% of the gross proceeds of the Private Placement that result from introductions by such agent.

It is anticipated that certain directors and officers of Kirrin may subscribe to the Offering. Pursuant to the policies of the Exchange and Multilateral Instrument 61-101 -- Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"), the Offering may be classified as a "related party transaction." Kirrin anticipates that it will be able to rely upon exemptions from the related party requirements of MI 61-101.

Kirrin also confirmed that, in connection with its acquisition of the additional lands adjacent to its Grevet REE property (announced June 21, 2011), Kirrin issued 166,667 common shares in satisfaction of its first payment obligation of $10,000 of the total $25,000 due over the term under the option agreement.
