Homeland Resources and Partners Commence Drilling at Liberty Ridge

DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - May 14, 2013) - Homeland Resources Ltd. (OTCQB: HMLA), an emerging oil and gas exploration and production company, is pleased to announce that they, in conjunction with their partners, will spud the first well today at the highly anticipated Liberty Ridge Project located in Oklahoma.

The projected depth of the initial Liberty Ridge well is targeted for 5,650 ft. The well is expected to take several weeks to reach total depth. The well site was selected based on positive indications and analytics from a proprietary 3-D seismic survey conducted by the operating partner. Notwithstanding adverse weather or other variables the drilling of this well will begin today.

"This is a great day for Homeland Resources and its many patient shareholders as we begin the next step to unlocking the great potential of the Liberty Ridge Project," said Armando Garcia, President of Homeland Resources. "Based on our assessment of the project, we are optimistic that we should receive positive results from this first well, and will continue to have high expectations for the entire Liberty Ridge Project, insofar as we think that it could have significant economic impact on our Company in 2013."

The exploration and development objectives at Liberty Ridge consist of drilling potential new multi-zone wells targeting 2nd Wilcox sand, 1st Wilcox sand, Trenton dolomite, Simpson dolomite, Viola limestone, Hunton limestone, Bartlesville sand and Redfork sand oilfields.

The drilling dates for the remaining four prospects in Phase-1 will be announced when confirmed by Homeland's operating partner. Drilling for Phase-1 is expected to potentially take several months, after which point Homeland and their partners will outline details for Phase-2. Drilling at Liberty Ridge for Homeland and their partners is expected to take place from 2013 through 2014.
