Blue Horizon Announces Sale of Working Interest in Waskahigan & Amendment to Previous Agreement at Normandville & Haro

RED DEER, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Aug. 20, 2012) - Blue Horizon Industries Inc. ("Blue Horizon" or the "Corporation") (CNSX:BH) announces that its wholly owned subsidiary, Blue Horizon Energy Inc. ("BH Energy"), has sold an additional 2% working interest in the Waskahigan oil assets (the "Working Interest") to an arm's length third party ("the Purchaser"). The Corporation received $65,000 cash as consideration for the Working Interest.

Originally, BH Energy held a 15% undivided working interest, and then on June 8th, 2012 announced the sale of a 3% working interest for proceeds of $ $97,500 together with an option in behalf of the Purchaser, wherein the Purchaser retained the right to exercise the option for the remaining 12% working interest for further consideration of $390,000.

Under the amended terms of agreement, the Purchaser has the irrevocable right to purchase the remaining 10% working interest in the Waskahigan asset for a period of 45 days from August 5, 2012.

The Corporation still retains ownership of a 10% working interest (subject to the option held by the Purchaser pursuant to the amended agreement) in 160 acres in the Waskahigan Area of Central Alberta. To date, a 2,200 m test well with a 500 m horizontal section targeting the Dunvegan B Formation has been drilled, cased and fraced. The well is scheduled to be placed on production in the third quarter of 2012. The Corporation is the operator of this well.

The Corporation also announces an amendment to the Purchase and Sale Agreement ("PSA") that was announced May 31, 2012 ("Normandville and Haro PSA"). The Corporation had entered into an agreement to sell working interests in two oil assets held by BH Energy to an arm's-length purchaser. The Corporation agreed to sell an undivided 30-per-cent working interest in its Northern Alberta heavy oil property referred to as the Normandville property. In the same transaction agreement, the Corporation agreed to sell its 100 per cent working interest in the Haro prospective property. The Normandville and Haro PSA expired in its original form, and under the terms of the amended agreement, it is expected to close on or before August 31st, 2012.

Don Allan, President, and CEO of Blue Horizon states, "We are driven to move this project to the next stage and pleased that we have an active partner in this endeavor. Our goal is to get the oil well flowing, to produce a steady cash-flow."
