Wilton Resources Inc. (the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:WIL.P) is pleased to announce that it has completed the purchase of a 75% non-operating interest in a certain oil and gas property (the "Property") of Cascade Resources Inc. ("Cascade") located in Monitor, Alberta (the "Acquisition") constituting its qualifying transaction (the "Qualifying Transaction") under the applicable policies of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSX-V") (see the press releases of the Corporation dated October 13th and October 19th and the Corporation's filing statement dated October 19, 2011 (the "Filing Statement"), all as filed on the Corporation's SEDAR profile, for further details). Pursuant to the terms of the Acquisition, which was negotiated at arm's length, the Corporation purchased, on industry standard terms and conditions, a 75% non-operating interest in the Property, and all wells and tangibles associated with such interest for an aggregate purchase price of $825,000. The purchase price was paid through the issuance of 1,076,923 common shares ("Common Shares") of the Corporation to Cascade at a deemed price of $0.65 per Common Share, with the remaining $125,000 paid in cash by way of a deposit which was released from escrow on closing of the Acquisition. The Common Shares are subject to a hold period expiring on February 29, 2012.

Assuming that all TSX-V conditions are satisfied, it is expected that the Corporation will be reinstated for trading under the stock symbol "WIL" on or about November 1, 2011.

Following completion of the Qualifying Transaction, the board of directors (the "Board") of the Corporation consists of Richard G. Anderson, Stuart B. McDowall, Darryl J. Raymaker, Allen F. Emes and Roy MacLaren. The officers of the Corporation are:

Richard G. Anderson - Chief Executive Officer and Corporate Secretary

Kenneth Rutherford - Chief Financial Officer

Gerald W. Welsh - President and Chief Operating Officer

Emmanuel Malterre - Vice President, Exploration

Summaries of the biographies for all of the directors and executive management of the Corporation are set out in the Filing Statement available for review under the Corporation's SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com.

The Board wishes to confirm the corporate strategy going forward. The business plan of the Corporation was and continues to be the investment and acquisition of large international oil and gas assets and to engage in international exploration and development. The Board has reviewed a number of potential international projects, but has not entered into any agreements in principal with respect to those projects. Upon completion of the Acquisition, the Corporation will continue to pursue its international oil and gas acquisition strategy.
