Wilton Resources Inc. ("Wilton" or the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:WIL) is pleased to announce that it is proposing to issue, by way of a non-brokered private placement, (the "Offering") up to 1,200,000 units ("Units") of the Corporation at a purchase price of $0.50 per Unit for gross proceeds of up to $600,000, subject to regulatory approval. Each Unit will be comprised of one common share in the capital of the Corporation ("Common Share") and one common share purchase warrant ("Warrant"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one Common Share for a period of 12 months from the date of issuance at an exercise price of $1.00. If at any time prior to the expiry of the Warrants the trading price of the Common Shares exceeds $1.50 for a period of 21 consecutive trading days, the issuer may provide notice to the holders of the Warrants that the Warrants will expire 21 days after the date of the notice. The net proceeds of the Offering will be used by the Corporation for general corporate purposes and to execute its corporate strategy by investing in or acquiring large international oil and gas assets.

In certain instances, the Corporation may pay finder's fees to eligible persons ("Finders") on a portion of the Offering consisting of a cash payment equal to 6% of gross proceeds raised from applicable subscriptions in the Offering and the issuance of finder's warrants ("Finder's Warrants") equal to 6% of the gross proceeds raised from applicable subscriptions in the Offering. Each Finder's Warrant will entitle the holder to acquire one additional Common Share at a price of $0.50 for a period of 12 months from the closing date of the Offering (the "Closing Date").
