Solara Exploration Provides Corporate Update

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Dec. 7, 2012) - Solara Exploration Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:SAA.A) ("Solara" or the "Company") advises that the Company's senior lender under its secured credit facility has made demand on the Company for repayment of all indebtedness under such facility, which is currently in the amount of $15.5 MM plus any unpaid interest by December 17, 2012. The demand is due to the Company being in breach of certain covenants under the facility as a result of the Company's current working capital deficiency.

The Company also advises that the syndicate of agents lead by Burgeonvest Bick Securities Limited along with Octagon Capital Corp. and Global Securities Corp. have withdrawn their Term Sheet for the Private Placement of up to $12 MM for the proposed combined entity of Solara and Verity Energy Ltd. ("Verity"). The Company also advises that it has agreed to terminate the Amalgamation Agreement for the proposed merger of Solara and Verity. The Company plans to investigate and review all other opportunities to provide for the ongoing survival of the Company in light of these current developments.
