Platina Energy Group Reports Acreage Expansion in Kentucky

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - August 5, 2008) - Platina Energy Group, Inc. (OTCBB: PLTG) (FRANKFURT: O5Y) is pleased to report that the Company has acquired an additional 15-20 drilling locations in Kentucky. Our immediate strategy is to expand growth in proven geographical areas from which we are already producing oil and gas.

According to Blair Merriam, President of Platina, "The additional lease acreage should increase our potential reserves by at least 25%, which is considerably more than the recent temporary decline in gas and oil prices. It is important for investors to understand that we calculate our internal forecasts using $6 natural gas and $70 oil. Being as though current market pricing is more than 50% higher than these bench marks, we are considerably ahead of where we could otherwise be."

Platina will increase its oil and gas lease holdings in the Appalachian area as its core strategy for growth over the foreseeable future. Production remains on or ahead of targeted quantities despite unstable stock market conditions.
