Fri Nov 12, 9:00 AM

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Nov. 12, 2010) - Northern Abitibi Mining Corp. (TSX VENTURE: NAI.V) ("Northern Abitibi") is pleased to announce it has been awarded the Prospector/Explorer of the Year Award by the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum, Newfoundland Branch.

The award was presented to Dr. Shane Ebert on behalf of Northern Abitibi at the annual Newfoundland and Labrador Mineral Resources Review Conference in St John's, Newfoundland on November 6, 2010. Northern Abitibi earned the award for its role in the discovery and delineation of a new gold deposit at the Viking Project, Newfoundland. Newfoundland based prospector Paul Crocker was a co-winner of the award for his outstanding contributions at the Viking Project and elsewhere in Newfoundland and Labrador.

Northern Abitibi would like to acknowledge and thank the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador for its $100,000 funding contribution under the Junior Exploration Assistance Program. These monies have been put back into the 2010 exploration program and have enabled the company to make significant additional exploration progress at Viking. Final results from the 2010 drill program at Viking will be available for release shortly.
