Diaz Accepted for Trading on the TSX Venture Exchange

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - July 7, 2011) - Diaz Resources Ltd (TSX:DZR) is pleased to announce that its common shares will begin trading on the TSX Venture Exchange as a Tier 1 issuer as of July 14, 2011. The Company will retain its current trading symbol – "DZR". Diaz has voluntarily applied to delist from the TSX.

Robert W. Lamond, President, CEO and Chairman, commented that "Given the market capitalization and current trading price of Diaz common shares on the TSX, it is appropriate for the Company to move its listing to the TSX Venture where most of the Company's junior oil and gas peers are listed.

With the recent refinancing of the Company through the issuance of an $8 million convertible debenture, the Company is positioned to add value to its shareholders through the development of its Alberta and Saskatchewan properties. We anticipate that the first well of the new horizontal drilling program at our main Lloydminster play will commence drilling within the week."
