Up to $10,000,000 Equity Financing Confirmed

VANCOUVER, BC -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 28, 2005 -- Apolo Gold & Energy Inc. (OTC BB: APLL) advises that it has completed negotiations and executed an Investment Agreement with Dutchess Private Equities Fund, II, L.P. for up to $10,000,000 in equity financing. This financing can be drawn over a 3-year period and is subject only to the filing of a registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission and having the registration statement declared effective. The Company is currently preparing the registration statement and expects to file within the next 10 days.

During the thirty-six month period, Apolo may request a drawdown by selling shares of its common stock to Dutchess Private Equities Fund, II L.P. and Dutchess will be obligated to purchase such shares, as outlined specifically in the Agreement.

The Company feels that the access to capital in a controlled, efficient and least costly manner is necessary as it continues its development of the NUP project in Sumatra and its pursuit of oil and gas opportunities throughout North America and elsewhere. The agreement with Dutchess Private Equities Fund, II, L.P. will allow the company to pursue oil and gas opportunities with the knowledge that financing is available.

Work continues with the underground drifting on Vein #1. There has been 265 feet of crosscutting and drifting completed to date with approximately 35 feet of additional crosscutting to be completed before intercepting the area below shaft #4, where two diamond drill holes in 2003 intercepted 2 metres of 64.6 grams gold per tonne and 1,350 grams silver, and 2 metres of 29.6 grams gold and 651 grams silver per tonne.

The Company intends to undertake a 3,000 metre drilling program later this year on the Camp Zone in order to further define the zone at depth. The new drill holes will be drilled to intercept the mineralized zone to a further depth of at least 500 feet below the surface.

The Company also confirms that it completed the moving of its offices to #1209 - 409 Granville St Vancouver BC Canada V6C 1T2. The phone number remains the same, 604-687-4150 and the fax number is 604-687-4155.
