Intrepid Secures 17,790,000 Dollar Financing Package

IDAHO FALLS, ID -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 18, 2005 -- Intrepid Technology and Resources, Inc. (ITR) (OTC BB: IESV) a renewable energy company has signed an Engagement Letter with Ferris Baker Watts, Washington D.C., to commence the marketing and placement of 17,790,000 dollars in Tax Exempt Industrial Revenue Bond financing.

The financing, expected to be completed within 60-90 days, will provide ITR the capital to expand their existing biogas facility near Rupert, Idaho, construct the Westpoint Dairy biogas plant and a third, confirmed, biogas facility located near the Westpoint site. The 17,790,000 dollar project will additionally include eight miles of gathering pipeline to connect the two new plants into Intermountain Gas' distribution pipeline.

Dr. Dennis Keiser, ITR's president stated, in making the announcement, "Our capacity to design and engineer these types of systems has never been in question. What has concerned investors and customers has been the inability of companies our size to financially survive. Our ability to come up with this type of innovative, non dilutive, financing in an amount and at interest rates which will surprise many continues to set Intrepid Technology aside as a viable, innovative and growing alternative energy company."

"We are pleased to be associated with a leader in public finance who also shares the Intrepid vision for alternate energy. Ferris Baker Watts personnel have personally visited our operating biogas plant and, obviously, were impressed with every aspect of our operation. An operating energy plant and clear vision of where we are going makes this project fundable," Dr. Keiser concluded.

Upon completion of this project, in 2006, ITR will be producing over 450,000,000 cubic feet per year of high-grade biogas. This will make ITR the largest producer of pipeline quality biogas in the United States.
