North Arrow Phoenix Project Update

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA – Aug. 19, 2009 – North Arrow Minerals Inc. (TSX VENTURE:NAR) is providing an update on its 100% owned Phoenix Lithium project, located in the Northwest Territories. The current exploration drilling program is nearing completion with six holes (592 m) completed to date, and the seventh and last hole in progress. The first three holes of the program tested the Big Bird pegmatite and intersected 34.30 m, 17.43 m and 12.48 m of spodumene bearing pegmatite and related felsite and aplite. The fourth hole, intended to test a magnetic low geophysical anomaly to the west of the Big Bird pegmatite, did not intersect pegmatite. The final three holes of the program were intended to test the new Curlew pegmatite located three kilometres east of the Big Bird pegmatite, with the first two holes intersecting 25.11 m and 12.80 m of spodumene rich pegmatite, respectively. Additional work on the Big Bird pegmatite would best be carried out after freeze up, thereby allowing for more appropriate ice-based setups on a small lake that covers the northeastern contact of the pegmatite.
