Lexaria Corp.: Seismic Review Underway

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwire - November 12, 2007) - Lexaria Corp. (OTCBB: LXRA) (the "Company" or "Lexaria") announces that it has engaged Dr. David DeMartini of Lone Star Geophysical Consulting to conduct a thorough reevaluation of existing seismic and other technical information.

Since September, Dr. DeMartini has been writing customized software to use in this effort for Lexaria Corp. and is applying it to existing seismic data, to help better understand the structures of the area and assist the Company as it tries to prioritize its many oil and gas targets in the region.

Dr. DeMartini is a recognized expert in several geophysical fields including seismic "bright spot" data analysis. He held various senior positions at the Shell Bellaire Research Center in Houston Texas from 1980 through 1998. He was inducted to the Offshore Energy Center Hall of Fame as a Technology Pioneer last year and was for several years a member of the Dean's Advisory Council of the College of Mathematical and Physical Sciences at The Ohio State University from which he received a PhD in Physics following his B.S. in Physics cum laude from the University of Notre Dame.

Dr. DeMartini is a thorough investigator and prolific author, having contributed to 19 public-domain publications and many more proprietary to Shell.

"Lexaria is fortunate to have been able to attract a geophysicist of Dr. DeMartini's caliber. I whole-heartedly welcome David to our team," said Chris Bunka, CEO of Lexaria Corp.
