Baraka Energy & Resources Ltd. (Baraka) disclosed Thursday that the deed of settlement and release referred to in the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) announcement of June 30 (June 30 Announcement) has now been executed and we refer shareholders and investors to that announcement. The effect of that settlement is as stated in the June 30 Announcement.

The 2014 Work Plan and Budget (2014 WP&B) on the 2 Australian Northern Territory permits, EP127 and EP128 in which Baraka has an interest (subject to the settlement referred to above), involving 3 wells in the Georgina Basin has been carried out expeditiously by Statoil Australia Theta B.V., the Operator.

Pending an independent analysis by Baraka on all the data from the wells drilled on EP127 and EP128 in the 2014 WP&B, and the completion and testing of OzBeta-1 well, we would refer the market to the public announcement made by Petrofrontier Corp., our joint venture partner, which outlines the results to date on all five wells in the Georgina Basin as interpreted by them.

The 3 wells on Baraka’s permits are OzBeta-1 on EP127, OzDelta-1 and OzEpsilon-1 on EP128.

Further information will be released to the market after our independent analysis, if it is deemed by Baraka to be material.
