All offer conditions remain unchanged.

NovaGold further advised that it will be making an application to the British Columbia Securities Commission ("BCSC”) requesting that the BCSC promptly hold a hearing to consider cease trading the Shareholder Rights Plan approved by Copper Canyon and the Rights issued thereunder. It is a condition of the offer that the Shareholder Rights Plan be waived, invalidated or cease traded prior to the expiry of the offer.
