Advanced Explorations Inc. Corrects Misinterpretation

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 30, 2012) - Advanced Explorations Inc. (the "Company" or "AEI") (TSX VENTURE:AXI)(FRANKFURT:AE6) confirms that a third party is responsible for misleading filings as posted on the TMX website for insider trading reports. Recent changes to regulatory filing rule permit a company/individual to declare themselves a significant shareholder without approval or knowledge of the Company. These trades are then marked by brokers and fed into the TMX insider trading reports providing misleading information to the market that "Insider Trading" is occurring, a circumstance that has caused unnecessary concern amongst shareholders. On April 26, 2012, the Company reported on this issue and, unfortunately, misreporting by some of the news agencies provided further misleading information in that they did not recognize that AEI had reported the issue to the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada ("IIROC"). The investigation is of an unknown third party trader and not AEI.

The Company has also reported to IIROC that it has concerns the same third party that has declared themselves as a significant shareholder may have also been involved in suspicious or manipulative trading practices at end of day. Furthermore, AEI is also investigating whether the third party is acting in concert with those responsible for negative off-market activities directed at the Company. The Company will provide further information to the shareholders as it becomes available.

John Gingerich, President & CEO commented:

"Privacy and confidentiality rules significantly limit our ability to investigate these irregular activities. We advise that shareholders who have acted on misinformation and are concerned they may have been harmed by these actions to report their concerns. If the ongoing investigation does reveal these activities are related, appropriate actions will be taken."
