Bird River Resources Comments on News Release from NWest Energy

WINNIPEG, MANITOBA--(Marketwired - Sept. 9, 2014) - Bird River Resources Inc. (CSE:BDR) understands that NWest Energy Corp. (NWest) issued a news release yesterday announcing its intention to make an offer to acquire all of the outstanding common shares of Bird River Resources Inc. in exchange for an equal number of shares of NWest Energy Corp., common shares.

Although Nelson Shodine, President, and Ed Thompson, Secretary Treasurer, of BDR did meet with Kevin Aylward, President, and Bill Fleming, CFO, of NWest last week, no understanding was reached and no formal proposal was presented for consideration by BDR's board of directors. Consequently, BDR views their verbal offer as an unsolicited matter as it seemed to provide no benefit whatsoever to BDR's shareholders. BDR's board continues to explore other ways to enhance the Company's value on behalf of its shareholders.

Bird River Resources would also like to announce that it is participating in the drilling of a new well in southwestern Manitoba with its JV partner, Antler River Resources, of Pierson, Manitoba. BDR will have a 5% interest in this new horizontal well which has now been completed and has been cased, cemented and the logs have been sent for analysis before fracking.
