CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - July 26, 2016) - Huntington Exploration Inc. ("HEI" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: HEI) announced today that it has completed the closing of the previously announced non-brokered private placement of units ("Units"), subject to final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. HEI issued 16,666,667 Units at a price of $0.03 per Unit for gross proceeds of $500,000 (the "Private Placement"). Each Unit consists of one common share and one transferable common share purchase warrant, which each warrant entitling the holder thereof to purchase one additional common share at a price of $0.05 per share for a period of thirty six months from closing.

The Company intends to use the proceeds from the Private Placement to acquire new projects in the resource mining sector that will strategically complement the Company's existing portfolio of oil and gas assets and for general working capital purposes, and HEI confirms that the proceeds will not be used to retire any current debt or to pay any management fees. All securities issued in connection with the Private Placement are subject to a hold period that expires on November 27, 2016.

Bob Verhelst, an officer and a director of HEI, J. Timothy Bowes an officer and director of HEI and Michael Binnion, a director of HEI, subscribed for 1,700,000 Units, 1,666,667 Units and 833,333 Units, respectively, under the Private Placement. HEI has determined that exemptions from the various requirements of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 are available for the issuance of the Units (Formal Valuation - Issuer Not Listed on Specified Markets; Minority Approval - Fair Market Value Not More Than $2,500,000).
