NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES

Source Exploration Corp. ("Source" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:SOP) is pleased to announce that due to strong investor demand for its recently announced non-brokered private placement (the "Offering") of up to 10,000,000 units of the Company (the "Units") at a price of $0.26 per Unit, the Company has agreed to increase the size of the Offering to raise up to $2,990,000.

The securities to be issued under this Offering will be offered by way of private placement in the provinces of Ontario and British Columbia and such other provinces of Canada as may be determined by the Company, in each case, pursuant to applicable exemptions from the prospectus requirements under applicable securities laws.

Closing of the Offering is anticipated to occur on or before February 29, 2012 and is subject to receipt of all required regulatory approvals including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. Securities issued under the Offering will be subject to a four month hold period which will expire four months from the date of closing of the Offering.

The proceeds from the Offering will be used to continue exploration on the Company's Mexico projects, Sinaloa, property acquisitions, and for general working capital purposes.
