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

WesternZagros Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:WZR) ("WesternZagros" or "the Company") has resumed field operations on the Garmian and Kurdamir blocks following the stabilization of industry conditions and the return of third party oil field services in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq. In August, following consultation with the Ministry of Natural Resources of the Kurdistan Regional Government, the Company undertook the precautionary step of withdrawing non-essential personnel from field locations and company regional offices. WesternZagros's primary operating consideration is always the safety and welfare of our staff. The Company's operations in the Region remain safe and secure.

"We now look forward to completing the Sarqala-1 workover, the testing of Hasira-1, and the further development of the existing production facilities on the Garmian Block. On the Kurdamir Block, following the submission of the Development Plan on August 31, 2014 we look forward to spudding our first horizontal well at Kurdamir-4," said Simon Hatfield, WesternZagros's Chief Executive Officer.
