CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Dec. 5, 2011) -


Blacksteel Energy Inc. (TSX VENTURE:BEY) ("Blacksteel" or the "Corporation") announces that it has adjourned its annual general and special meeting (the "Meeting") of the holders (the "Shareholders") of Class "A" common shares of Blacksteel until Wednesday December 21, 2011 at 3:00 p.m. (Calgary time) at the offices of Gowling Lafleur Henderson LLP, Suite 1400, 700-2nd Street S.W., Calgary, Alberta.

The Meeting was originally scheduled for Wednesday December 7, 2011 at 3:00 p.m. (Calgary time), but it has come to the attention of the Corporation that a number of beneficial Shareholders have not received the Shareholder material (the "AGM Material") that was delivered in contemplation of the Meeting.

Blacksteel would advise any beneficial Shareholder that has not received the AGM Material to contact the registered holder of their shares (generally the IIROC institution which holds their shares).
