Admiral Bay Updates Revloc Project in the Appalachian Basin, Pennsylvania

Release of Acreage and Plugging of All Seven Wells at the Revloc Project in Pennsylvania

CENTENNIAL, COLORADO--(Marketwire - Aug. 16, 2011) - Admiral Bay Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ADB)

Admiral Bay Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ADB) ("Admiral Bay" or the "Company") announces that the Company along with its partner Bluebird Energy are plugging the wells at the Revloc Project and have decided not to renew the leases representing 12,381.81 net acres. This reduces the net acreage to the Company of 3,691.846 net acres for coal or coal bed methane and 300.0 net acres of oil and gas leases. The abandonment is due to adverse gas market conditions, uncertainty of State and Federal regulations concerning fracking, increase in overall regulatory costs and eliminates $120,000.00 (US) gross yearly rentals to the partners. The Company feels that the present project is uneconomic. The remaining acreage is being placed with a broker to be put up for sale or farm-out.

Admiral Bay Resources Inc. (www.admiralbay.com) is an emerging unconventional gas production company focused on the development of projects in the Cherokee Basin in southeast Kansas and the Appalachian Basin in Pennsylvania. Admiral Bay is listed on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol ADB.
