Maple Leaf 2012 Energy Income Limited Partnership Notice of Distribution

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Oct. 23, 2012) - Maple Leaf 2012 Energy Income Limited Partnership ("Maple Leaf" or the "Partnership") is pleased to announce the commencement of cash distributions for the Partnership.

The Partnership's first cash distribution is $0.25 per limited partnership unit representing the revenue received from August production of 4 wells.

The payment date for this distribution is October 30, 2012 to all unitholders of record on October 22, 2012. This cash distribution will be deposited directly into unitholder accounts (i.e. the account at the investment dealers where investors hold their Partnership Units).

UPDATE SUMMARY

Maple Leaf completed its financing in April 2012 and has now invested 70% of its capital into a joint venture program targeting 6 development wells located in north central Alberta.

There are 6 wells in this multi-frac horizontal development drilling program all of which target light oil in the Cardium formation. It is anticipated that the remaining 2 wells will be drilled this fall.

The Partnership's joint venture partner on this particular program is Bellatrix Exploration Ltd. (www.bellatrixexploration.com). Bellatrix is an intermediate exploration and production company based in Calgary, Alberta and is traded on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol BXE.

Maple Leaf is currently analyzing several other opportunities for investing the balance of the capital.

OIL & GAS PRICE VOLATILITY

Maple Leaf reminds you that commodity (oil & gas) price volatility can have a significant impact on the amount of revenues realized by Maple Leaf from the sale of its oil & gas, and correspondingly, the amount of distributions Maple Leaf is able to pay to investors.

Along with the aforementioned distribution of dividends, investors in Maple Leaf also benefit from tax deductions off of income of up to 100% of the amount of capital.

Subsequent updates will be provided once the balance of the capital has been invested.
