Long Run Exploration Ltd. Sets Date for Annual and Special Meeting of Shareholders and Adopts Advance Notice By-Law

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - March 20, 2014) - Long Run Exploration Ltd. ("Long Run" or the "Company") (TSX:LRE) is pleased to announce that it will hold an annual and special meeting of shareholders (the "Meeting") on May 21, 2014 at Livingston Place, 2nd floor, 222 - 3rd Avenue SW, Calgary, Alberta. An information circular is anticipated to be mailed to shareholders in late April 2014.

Additionally, the Company is pleased to announce that its Board of Directors has approved the adoption of an advance notice by-law (the "By-law"). Among other matters, the By-law fixes a deadline by which shareholders must submit a notice of director nominations to the Company prior to any annual or special meeting of shareholders where directors are to be elected and sets forth the information that a shareholder must include in the notice for it to be valid.

Specifically, the By-law requires advance notice to the Company in circumstances where nominations of persons for election as a director of the Company are made by shareholders other than pursuant to: (i) a requisition of a meeting made pursuant to the provisions of the Business Corporations Act (Alberta) (the "Act"); or (ii) a shareholder proposal made pursuant to the provisions of the Act.

In the case of an annual meeting of shareholders, notice to the Company must be made not less than 30 nor more than 65 days prior to the date of the annual meeting. In the event that the annual meeting is to be held on a date that is less than 50 days after the date on which the first public announcement of the date of the annual meeting was made, notice may be made not later than the close of business on the 10th day following such public announcement.

In the case of a special meeting of shareholders (which is not also an annual meeting), notice to the Company must be made not later than the close of business on the 15th day following the day on which the first public announcement of the date of the special meeting was made.

The By-law is effective immediately. At the Meeting, shareholders will be asked to confirm and ratify the By-law. If the By-law is not confirmed by an ordinary resolution of shareholders at the Meeting, the By-law will terminate and be of no further force and effect following the termination of the shareholders meeting.
