Exile Resources Inc. Private Placement Financing Update

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 12, 2008) -


Exile Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ERI) ("Exile") announced today that it will be increasing the total size of its non-brokered offering (the "Offering") previously announced on July 3, 2008 from 26,153,847 units ("Units") at $0.13 per Unit to a maximum of 27,925,535 Units for aggregate gross proceeds of $3,630,319.55. As announced, Exile closed the first tranche of the Offering on July 29, 2008, which raised gross proceeds of $2,950,019.67 from the sale of 22,692,459 Units. Each Unit is comprised of one common share of Exile and one half of one share purchase warrant as previously disclosed in the July 3, 2008 press release.

Exile anticipates that the second tranche of the Offering will close later this week. A Finder's fee of $22,500 will be paid to Canaccord Capital Corp. for their assistance with the Offering. The private placement remains subject to the final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

Net proceeds from the Offering will be used for engineering evaluation of the re-entry and testing programme for the existing well on Exile's Akepo Oilfield and for general corporate purposes. As the cost of re-entering and testing the well is anticipated to exceed the net proceeds of the Offering, Exile is continuing to actively explore other financing initiatives.
