NORONT WILL CONTINUE EXPLORATION DESPITE WORK STOPPAGE NOTICE

NORONT WILL CONTINUE EXPLORATION DESPITE WORK STOPPAGE NOTICE
TORONTO, Jan. 27 /CNW/ - Noront Resources Ltd. ("Noront" or the "Company") (TSX Venture: NOT) advises that it has received a notice on January 25, 2010 from the Marten Falls First Nation ("Marten Falls") seeking the immediate termination of all exploration activity by all companies currently operating in the Ring of Fire, James Bay Lowlands, Ontario.

The requested work stoppage apparently results from a dispute between Marten Falls and KWG/Fancamp on the consultation process required prior to the construction of their new exploration camp located on Koper Lake. Noront has no relationship with KWG/Fancamp or the new camp.
To date there have been no protests interfering with Noront's exploration activities. Noront has 50 people currently working in our Esker Camp, 20 of whom are self identified members of First Nation communities from Northern Ontario. We intend to continue with our activities and providing employment for our staff and contractors.

The Ontario government has been informed of our decision to continue work on site. In addition, Noront has offered to participate in negotiations with any combination of Government, Marten Falls and Industry in discussions that would help resolve this dispute.

About Noront:  Noront Resources Ltd. is focused on its significant and multiple, high-grade nickel-copper-platinum-palladium, chromite, gold and vanadium discoveries in an area known as the "Ring of Fire", an emerging multi-metals district located in the James Bay Lowlands of Ontario, Canada. Noront is the largest land holder at the Ring of Fire and continues to delineate and prove up its discoveries with NI 43-101 technical and economic reports and an aggressive and well financed drill plan for 2011.

All material information on Noront can be found on the Company's website at http://www.norontresources.com/ or at SEDAR at http://www.sedar.com/.
