VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 16, 2007) - L.G.R. Resources Ltd. (CNQ:MHPT) -

Further to its news release of June 19, 2007 L.G.R. Resources Ltd. (the "Company") is pleased to announce the closing of a brokered private placement (the "Private Placement") of 9,239,606 subscription receipts (the "Subscription Receipts") at a price of $0.27 per receipt for gross proceeds of $2,494,694 (the "Proceeds"). The Subscription Receipts were immediately exchanged by the holders into a total of 9,239,606 common shares (the "Shares") and 4,619,803 non-transferable share purchase warrants (the "Warrants") following confirmation by the Company of the execution of definitive petroleum agreements between Stream Oil & Gas Ltd. ("Stream") and Albpetrol S.A., the Albanian national oil and gas company, with respect to four producing oil and gas projects in Albania and final governmental approval for such agreements. Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional share of the Company (a "Warrant Share") at a price of $0.40 on or before August 14, 2009.

Under the terms of the Company's memorandum of understanding with Stream, the Company has agreed to advance to Stream, upon commercially reasonable terms to be negotiated, up to US$1,000,000 from the net Proceeds of the Private Placement. The balance of the Proceeds will be used to reduce payables, fund the costs of the Company's proposed business combination transaction with Stream as previously announced (the "Business Combination") and for general working capital.

Haywood Securities (UK) Limited ("Haywood UK") and Haywood Securities Inc. (together, the "Agents") acted as the Company's agents in connection with the Private Placement and were paid a cash commission and agent's warrants ("Agent's Warrants") to purchase up to 600,574 agent's units (the "Agents' Units") of the Company at a price of $0.27 per unit on or before August 14, 2009. Each Agents' Unit is comprised of one Share and one-half of one Warrant, with each whole Warrant entitling the holder to purchase one Warrant Share on the same terms and conditions as the Warrants issued to the purchasers of Subscription Receipts. The Company also paid Haywood UK a financial services fee in consideration for its services in acting as financial advisor to the Company in connection with the Business Combination.

All securities issued pursuant to the Private Placement including the Shares, the Warrants and the Agents' Warrants are subject to a hold period in Canada until December 15, 2007.

The Company is proceeding with its due diligence and preparation of definitive agreements for the proposed Business Combination with Stream with a view to completing the transaction on or before November 30, 2007.
