RedWater Energy Corp. ("RedWater") (TSX VENTURE:RED) announced today, that it intends to complete a non-brokered private placement financing pursuant to which it proposes to raise gross proceeds of up to $3,600,000 through the issuance of common share units ("Units") and "flow-through" units ("FT Units") at a price of $0.40 per Unit and $0.46 per FT Unit.

Each Unit is to consist 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 is to consist 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 shall entitle the holder thereof to acquire one Common Share at an exercise price of $0.60 per Common Share for a period of 18 months following the closing of the financing, subject to acceleration. All securities issued pursuant to the financing will be subject to a four-month hold period. Finders' fees may be payable to eligible persons with respect to the financing and will be subject to regulatory approval.

Net proceeds from this financing will be used to fund an initial six to eight well drilling program in Redwater. Drilling is expected to begin two weeks after the closing of this financing subject to equipment availability. RedWater intends to use its existing working capital line and cash flow from operations to expand its drilling program above the initial six to eight wells and/or for acquisitions.
