United Hunter Oil and Gas Corp. Announces Update on the Huasna Project, California

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Aug. 22, 2012) - United Hunter Oil & Gas Corporation (TSX VENTURE:UHO) ("UHO").

Board of Supervisors meeting August 21, 2012, San Luis Obispo County, California

United Hunter Oil & Gas ("The Corporation") announces that the San Luis County Board of Supervisor hearing held August 21, 2012 resulted in the denial of the Huasna Project in the Huasna Valley. The Corporation had presented an alternative drilling plan and other data to the Board of Supervisors to mitigate the Class 1 impacts and asked for a continuation for the alternatives to be properly evaluated but the Supervisors stated it would not change the outcome.

Dr. Arthur Halleran "CEO of United Hunter Oil & Gas" states "I am very disappointed in the decision considering that the drilling alternative presented to the board was not adequately evaluated by the county. UHO must over the next few weeks explore alternative projects. UHO still has the producing Canadian asset which is generating approximately $60,000 cash flow a month."
