Strata-X Amends $7 Million Private Placement

GOLDEN, COLORADO and EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Aug. 29, 2012) - The directors and management of Strata-X Ltd ("Strata-X" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:SXE) are pleased to advise that further to the Company's press release dated August 27, 2012, the Company has determined to offer both unsecured convertible debentures (the "Debentures") and units ("Units") as part of its $7 million private placement to provide flexibility to potential investors.

Each Unit will be made up of one common share and one-half of a common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant") and will be priced at $0.25 per Unit. Each Warrant shall entitle the holder to acquire one common share of the Company at a price of $0.60 per share for a period of two years.

As previously stated, the Debentures shall have a term of one year. The principal amount of the Debentures shall bear interest at an annual rate of 5%, which interest shall be payable semi-annually in arrears. The Debentures shall be convertible to Units at a deemed price of $0.25 per Unit, the same price as the Units are being offered to investors in the private placement. The Debentures shall automatically convert into Units at the end of their term.

The Company may pay finders' fees to eligible parties and these fees may be in the form of cash or securities.

The proceeds of the private placement will be used for work upon the Company's existing properties including the Vail property, the completion of the shale oil project acquisition in Texas and for general working capital purposes. The private placement is subject to approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
