UnionTown Energy Announces LOI for Oil and Gas Project in Heath Area of Montana

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - February 16, 2011) - UnionTown Energy Inc. (OTCBB: UTOG), an Independent Oil & Gas Company, today announced that it has signed a letter of intent for an oil and gas property in the Heath Area of Montana.

The Heath-Tyler petroleum system, located in central Montana, has produced about 100 million bbl of oil from over 25 fields. This petroleum system is relatively simple in that it has a source rock, the Heath Formation of Mississippian age, overlain by a sandstone reservoir rock, the Pennsylvanian Tyler Formation. Recently, the State of Montana issued drilling permits to several operators to explore for oil in fractured Mississippian Heath shale in the Central Montana Trough. The areas of interest for horizontal drilling are in Garfield, Petroleum, Fergus, Musselshell, and Rosebud counties.

The Company also announced today that it will not be closing on its previously announced Purchase Agreement with JayHawk Energy Inc. and confirmed that Marshall Diamond-Goldberg will not be joining the Board of Directors.
