Not for distribution in the United States or to U.S. Newswire Services

Vancouver, BC - April 21, 2009 - EMC Metals Corp. (EMC) and Golden Predator Royalty & Development Corp. (GPD) announce that GPD has successfully raised in excess of $4 million in its recently completed rights offering.

The Company expects to deploy the funds in conjunction with its focus of becoming a mid-tier gold-silver producer in Nevada by 2010. The Company intends to feed one of its two centrally located mills, or a newly designed modular mill, with ore trucked from high-grade satellite deposits. GPD sees this as a unique opportunity to be positioned as a niche operator within one of the world's richest and most politically stable, gold endowed regions.

A total 8,610,646 rights were exercised for total proceeds of $4,305,323. As a result of the exercises the Company now has 27,612,764 shares issued and outstanding and 38,260,377 shares fully diluted. GPD anticipates listing on the TSX Ventures Exchange in the coming days.

Each Right was exercisable at a price of $0.50 to acquire one common share of GPD and one-half of a share purchase warrant of GPD (a "Rights Warrant"). Each whole Rights Warrant may be exercised for a period of one year from the date GPD is listed on a Canadian stock exchange to acquire one additional share at exercise prices of $0.60 per share for the first 3 months from the listing date, and thereafter at $0.65, $0.75 and $0.90 per share for each subsequent 3 month period respectively, subject to a maximum exercise period expiring September 6, 2010.
