VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 28, 2012) -

NOT FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES OR THROUGH U.S. NEWSWIRES

Bluestone Resources Inc. (the "Company" or "Bluestone") (TSX VENTURE:BSR) today announced that it has closed the first tranche of the private placement of units, announced on August 8, 2012. The Company sold, on a non-brokered, private placement basis, 2,491,500 million units of the Company at a price of $0.18 per unit for gross proceeds of $448,470.

As previously disclosed, each unit consisted of one common share and one common share purchase warrant. Each common share purchase warrant is exercisable into one common share for a period of two (2) years from closing at a price of $0.25 per share, subject to the Company's right to accelerate the exercise of the warrants if the daily volume weighted average trading price of the common shares of the Company on the TSX Venture Exchange is equal to or exceeds $0.50 for a period of 10 consecutive trading days during the term of the warrant, commencing four months after the date the warrants are issued.

All securities issued in the private placement are subject to a four-month hold period from the closing of the private placement expiring on December 28, 2012. The Company intends to use the proceeds of the private placement to advance Bluestone's exploration properties and for general working capital purposes.

In connection with the private placement, the Company has agreed to pay a finder's fee to parties permitted by applicable securities laws to act as finders, equal to 5% cash and 5% finder's warrants of the gross proceeds raised from subscribers introduced to the Company by such finders. Accordingly, the Company will pay finder's fees of $18,405 and 102,800 warrants. Each finder's warrant is exercisable at a price of $0.25 per share for a period of two (2) years from the date of closing of the private placement.

Bluestone expects to complete a second tranche of the private placement with a closing date of September 10, 2012, pending TSXV approval.

Three insiders of the Company participated in the private placement on the same terms as arm's length investors, and shareholdings of those insiders in the Company increased as a result of such participation.
