(TSX VENTURE: ALO) ("Alston") is pleased to announce that it has closed the first tranche of its previously announced private placement financing (the "Offering") for gross proceeds of $338,550. Pursuant to the Offering, Alston issued 1,230,000 common shares on a "flow-through basis" pursuant to the Income Tax Act (Canada) (the "Tax Act") (the "Flow-Through Shares") at a purchase price of $0.20 per Flow-Through Share and 617,000 common shares at a purchase price of $0.15 per common share. After giving effect to the first tranche of the Offering, Alston currently has 24,301,930 common shares issued and outstanding. All of the securities issued pursuant to the first tranche of the Offering will be subject to a hold period expiring on May 1, 2012.

Integral Wealth Securities Limited acted as agent for the Offering. In connection with the Offering, Alston paid a commission equal 8% of the gross proceeds raised under the Offering (except with respect to subscriptions from President's list subscribers) and issued an aggregate of 113,760 broker warrants, each broker warrant entitling the holder to purchase one Common Share at $0.20 per share until December 30, 2013.

The proceeds of the Offering will be used to finance Alston's exploration program, with the gross proceeds from the sale of the Flow-Through Shares to be used to incur eligible "Canadian Exploration Expenses" (as defined in the Tax Act) which will be renounced in favour of the subscribers of the Flow-Through Shares effective on or before December 31, 2011.
