Quaterra Announces Increase and Clarification Re Non-Brokered Private Placement

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 8, 2009) - Quaterra Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:QTA)(NYSE Amex:QMM) (the "Company") today announced that it proposed to increase its offering to 6,000,000 Units and further that the News Release disseminated on October 1, 2009, through inadvertence, contained inaccurate information. The participation of Insiders in the announced Private Placement was not by way of debt settlement or in satisfaction of indebtedness incurred by reason of services rendered to the Company for which payment had been deferred. Insiders are participating in the Placement to the extent of 1,019,450 Units but all Insiders are remitting payment in the same manner as all other subscribers for Units.

On behalf of the Board of Directors,

Scott B. Hean, Chief Financial Officer, Quaterra Resources Inc.
