TORONTO, Ontario (September 10, 2009) – Pinetree Capital Ltd. (TSX: PNP), announces that on September 2, 2009, it acquired ownership of 2,083,333 common shares (“Common Shares”) of Lomiko Metals Inc. (“Lomiko”) and 1,041,666 common share purchase warrants (the “Warrants”). Each Warrant entitles the holder thereof to acquire one additional common share until March 2, 2011, at a price of $0.20.

As a result of this transaction, Pinetree and its joint actors held, as at September 2, 2009, an aggregate of 3,833,333 common shares of Lomiko, including the Common Shares and the Warrants. Of these totals, Pinetree directly holds the Common Shares and the Warrants. If Pinetree and its joint actors were to exercise all of the Warrants, their combined ownership would represent a total of 4,874,999 common shares of Lomiko, or approximately 11.9% of such shares outstanding as of September 2, 2009, calculated on a partially diluted basis assuming the exercise of the Warrants only.
These transactions were made for investment purposes and Pinetree and each of its joint actors could increase or decrease their respective investments in Lomiko depending on market conditions or any other relevant factor.
