CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - May 29, 2012) -Kirrin Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:KYM) today reported its financial results and corporate update for the first quarter of 2012. During the quarter, the Company focused on reviewing alternative financing strategies to complete its 2012 exploration plans as well as negotiations with third parties on introducing new projects to the Company. Negotiations included potentially expanding Kirrin's activities beyond REE and uranium exploration and beyond Canada. No financings were agreed during the quarter and no agreements have been reached arising from the aforementioned negotiations.
Kirrin recorded a net loss of $92,729 during the quarter, as against a net loss in the comparable quarter in 2011 of $139,684 which included a tax credit of $45,934.
