Solara Exploration Announces Update on Leduc D3 and Cardium Wells

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Nov. 1, 2011) - Solara Exploration Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:SAA.A) ("Solara" or the "Company") announces that based on the assessment of the samples and well logs for the Leduc D3 well located at 12-22-38-4 W5M in the Sylvan Lake area of Alberta, the Company and its partners have cased the well and will undertake completion operations on the Leduc D3 formation commencing next week. Solara is participating for a 75% working interest in the drilling, casing and completion of the well to earn a 48.75% working interest pursuant to a farmout agreement among the parties.

Solara also advises that it is currently engaged in equipping and tie-in operations on its previously announced well which was recently drilled and completed in the Leduc D3 formation at 14-7-38-3 W5M in the Sylvan lake area. The Company expects that the well will be on production by November 15, 2011.

The Company also announces that the equipping and tie-in of the horizontal well located at 16-9- 45-5W5M for oil and gas production from the Cardium formation at Buck Lake (Pembina) has experienced delays due to service availability problems which should be resolved in the next several days.

Solara plans to provide updated production information after these new wells are placed on production and produce for a reasonable period of time.
