OKOTOKS, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Oct. 5, 2011) -


RedWater Energy Corp. ("RedWater") (TSX VENTURE:RED) is pleased to announce that it has completed the final tranche of its previously announced $3.6 million financing by issuing 129,000 common share units ("Units") and 182,100 "flow-through" units ("FT Units") at a price of $0.40 per Unit and $0.46 per FT Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of $135,366.00.

Each Unit consists of one common share in the capital of RedWater (a "Common Share") and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (a "Warrant") of RedWater. Each FT Unit consists of one flow-through common share of RedWater (a "FT Share") and one-half of one Warrant. Each FT Share will qualify as a "flow-through share" for the purposes of the Income Tax Act (Canada). Each whole Warrant entitles the holder thereof to acquire one Common Share at an exercise price of $0.60 per Common Share until April 4, 2013, subject to acceleration. All securities issued pursuant to the financing are subject to a four-month hold period.

The total amount raised by RedWater pursuant to its financing is $2,617,452.40 through the issuance of 819,000 Units and 4,977,940 FT Units.

Management expects proceeds from this financing and our recently expanded bank credit facility will be sufficient to complete a capital program of 4-6 new wells. Drilling began September 30, 2011. The first well has been cased and is awaiting completion. A second well was spuded October 4, 2011 with drilling to reach target depth within three to four days.
