Strike COO to Step Down

Strike has conducted an internal reorganization as part of the implementation of a program designed to reduce its operating management activities and to achieve greater exposure to high impact exploration opportunities. As a consequence of the Company's changing focus, Chief Operating Officer and Executive Director Derrick O'Keeffe has advised the Board of his intention to leave the Company and has submitted his resignation as Executive Director, effective immediately.

Strike Energy's Chairman Tim Clifton expressed his appreciation to Derrick for the contribution that he has made to Strike during his term, and on behalf of the Board wished him well in his future endeavors.
