Rodinia Lithium Inc. Closes Strategic Private Placement With China's Largest Li-ion Battery Materials Provider


- Strategic Investor, Shanshan, Is One of the Leading Lithium-ion Battery Materials Providers in China and Is a Significant End User of Battery Grade Lithium Carbonate

- Shanshan Now Owns Approximately 7.6% of the Basic Common Shares Outstanding

- Private Placement Completed at a Premium to Market

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 29, 2010) - Rodinia Lithium Inc. ("Rodinia" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:RM)(OTCQX:RDNAF), is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously announced non-brokered private placement financing of common shares of the Company ("Common Shares") at a price of $0.55 per Common Share for gross proceeds of $1,397,000. One strategic investor, Hong Kong Shanshan Resources Co., Ltd., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Ningbo Shanshan Co., Ltd. (SHA:600884; "Shanshan") has subscribed for the entire placement of 2,540,000 Common Shares (the "Private Placement").

Established in 1992 in Zhejiang province, China, Ningbo Shanshan Co., Ltd. is focused on two core business verticals: a) garment manufacturing and sales, and b) lithium-ion battery materials. After 10 years of development, Shanshan has become one of China's largest lithium-ion battery materials providers.

Rodinia intends to use the net proceeds from this private placement to continue the development of its key projects and for working capital purposes. Will Randall, President and CEO of Rodinia Lithium said "We expect that these funds, along with funds previously raised, will allow us to aggressively pursue development of Diablillos and to further our goal of delineating an NI 43-101 compliant resource on the property in the coming months. We are excited by the opportunity to work and consult with a leading lithium carbonate end user to unlock the value of our flagship Diablillos and Clayton Valley projects for the benefit of all Rodinia shareholders. It was a pleasure to have representatives of Shanshan visit our Diablillos property last month and we hope to continue developing our relationship."

Pursuant to the terms of the Private Placement, Shanshan has the right, subject to certain conditions, to nominate one director to the board of Rodinia. Upon completion of the Private Placement, and together with shares already owned prior to the Private Placement, Shanshan will own 5,140,000 Common Shares of the Company, representing approximately 7.6% of issued and outstanding Common Shares of the Company. In addition, Shanshan holds 1,300,000 common share purchase warrants of the Company, which upon exercise would result in Shanshan holding approximately 9.5% of the Company.

The Common Shares will be subject to statutory resale restrictions expiring on March 26, 2011. Closing of the private placement is subject to receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals, including final TSX Venture Exchange approval.
