About Edge Resources Inc.

Edge Resources is focused on the exploration, development and production of oil and natural gas, most prominently from the Edmonton Sands group of formations, a conventional, shallow gas group of reservoirs located in Central Alberta, Canada. The management team's very high success rate is based on the safe, efficient deployment of capital and a proven ability to efficiently execute in shallow formations, which gives Edge Resources a sustainable, low-cost, competitive advantage.

The Alberta Government estimates that there is 44 trillion cubic feet ("TCF") of non-producing, shallow natural gas in Alberta. Edge Resources' management team has evaluated over 20,000 sections of land and has identified over 200 "five-star" sections.
