Tucson, Arizona – August 31, 2009 – Liberty Star Uranium & Metals Corp. (the “Company” LBSU: OTCBB)is pleased to announce that a $589,177 financing has been finalized as of August 14, 2009. The latest transaction is a 12% Convertible Note issued by five financial sources familiar with the Company’s history (see the SEC 8K filing, 8/20/09 for detailed information).

These  funds will be used to finance airborne geophysics over the porphyry copper-gold claims comprising the  Big Chunk Super Project (adjacent to the Pebble porphyry project in the Iliamna mining district of SW Alaska).
