OKOTOKS, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Sept. 12, 2011) -

NOT FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES OR FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES AND DOES NOT CONSTITUTE AN OFFER OF THE SECURITIES DESCRIBED HEREIN.

RedWater Energy Corp. ("RedWater") (TSX VENTURE:RED) is pleased to announce that it has completed the second tranche of its previously announced $3.6 million financing by issuing 3,726,540 "flow-through" units ("FT Units") at a price of $0.46 per FT Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of $1,714,208.

Each FT Unit consists of one flow-through common share of RedWater (a "FT Share") and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (a "Warrant") of RedWater. 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 in the capital of RedWater (a "Common Share") at an exercise price of $0.60 per Common Share until March 9, 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 the financing is now $2,517,000 through the issuance of 690,000 common share units ("Units") and 4,871,740 FT Units. Each Unit consists of one Common Share and one-half of one Warrant.

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.

Including the issuance of shares detailed in this news release, there are currently 30,163,532 Common Shares issued and outstanding.

In connection with the second closing of the financing, RedWater paid cash commissions of $102,852.50 and issued compensation warrants to purchase 223,592 Units at an exercise price of $0.40 per Unit until September 9, 2012.
