Bayshore Petroleum Corp.: Saskatchewan Radville Exploratory 8-5-6-17W2 well Update and Secured Loan Agreement

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - July 20, 2012) - Bayshore Petroleum Corp. ("Bayshore" or the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:BSH) is pleased to announce on July 12, 2012 it has partially completed its exploratory well Radville 8-5-6-17W2 (100% working interest). Three identified prospective zones were perforated and swabbed test. One potential Mississippian zone has encountered light hydrocarbon in a 4 meter porous interval. Preliminary perforation and swab test operation were conducted for a short period of time and recovered only load fluid and light oil.

There is another zone which is prospective and is subject to more detailed engineering and log interpretation and will be tested later on. As these zones are all newly unexplored formations in the area, the well is currently suspended waiting for in depth geological review and proper stimulation design and pressure / production testing.

In addition, the Corporation has entered into a Secured Loan Agreement with a Director of the Corporation pursuant to which the Corporation may borrow up to $500,000 for a term of six months at an undisclosed interest rate. These funds will be used to continue work on the Corporation's Saskatchewan oil and gas properties and for other corporate purposes. The Corporation may repay the debt at any time without penalty. The lender has been granted a security interest in the personal property of the Corporation.

Bayshore is a Calgary, Alberta based corporation engaged in the exploration, development and production of petroleum and natural gas. The Common Shares are listed on the TSX Venture Exchange under the trading symbol "BSH".
