VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - April 14, 2014) -

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES NOR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

Knol Resources Corp., (the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:NOL) is pleased to announce that it has closed the first of two expected tranches of its previously announced non-brokered private placement offering, which first tranche consisted of 47,000,000 units of the Corporation ("Units") at a purchase price of $0.10 per Unit for total gross proceeds of $4,700,000 (the "Offering"). Each Unit consisted of one common share in the capital of the Corporation ("Common Share") and one non-transferable Common Share purchase warrant of the Corporation ("Warrant"). Each Warrant will be exercisable into one Common Share at a price of $0.20 until April 11, 2019, subject to acceleration in certain circumstances. The Corporation expects to close the second tranche of the Offering, consisting of an additional 3,000,000 Units for gross proceeds of $300,000, shortly and will announce the closing thereof once complete.

The Corporation intends to use the net proceeds from the Offering to acquire certain oil and gas interests in Canada by way of joint venture, or other means, for exploration and development activities in the oil and gas sector as the initial part of a strategic oil and gas plan. Remaining proceeds, if any, will be used for general corporate purposes. Further details on the acquisition will be provided when available.

Sprott Private Wealth LP and other eligible parties (the "Finders") acted as finders for the Corporation under the Offering. The Finders were paid a cash commission equal to 6% of gross proceeds raised from applicable subscriptions and issued non-transferable finder's warrants ("Finder's Warrants") equal to 6% of the number of Units issued in connection with applicable subscriptions under the Offering. Each Finder's Warrant will entitle the Finder to acquire one additional Common Share at a price of $0.10 until April 11, 2016.

All Common Shares, Warrants and any Common Shares issued on exercise of the Warrants and Finder's Warrants are subject to a four (4) month statutory restricted resale period expiring on August 12, 2014.
