Wilton Resources Inc. ("Wilton" or the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:WIL) is pleased to announce that, further to its press release dated December 6, 2012, it has successfully completed its previously announced non-brokered private placement (the "Private Placement").

Pursuant to the Private Placement, the Corporation issued 400,000 units of the Corporation ("Units") at a purchase price of $1.00 per Unit for gross proceeds of $400,000. Each Unit consists of one (1) common share in the capital of the Corporation ("Common Share") and one (1) common share purchase warrant ("Warrant"). Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase an additional Common Share for a period of twenty-four (24) months from the date of issuance at an exercise price of $1.25 per Common Share. If at any time prior to the expiry of the Warrants the trading price of the Common Shares exceeds $1.25 for a period of twenty (20) consecutive trading days, the Corporation may provide notice (the "Notice") to the holders of the Warrants that the Warrants will expire twenty (20) days after the date of the Notice. The Common Shares are subject to a hold period under applicable securities laws until April 15, 2013.

The Corporation paid an aggregate finder's fee of $12,000.00 to certain arm's length finders in consideration for placing 400,000 Units under the Private Placement.

The Corporation intends to use the net proceeds of the Private Placement to fund its general corporate purposes and its corporate strategy of investing in and acquiring large international oil and gas assets.
