CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/11/13 -- Relentless Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE: RRL) ("Relentless" or the "Company") announced today that the Company has entered into an asset exchange agreement (the "Agreement") with an arm's length Calgary-based private oil and gas company ("Privateco") to assign all of the Company's petroleum and natural gas interests in south-western Saskatchewan in exchange for Privateco's interests in producing and undeveloped petroleum and natural gas properties located in various areas throughout Alberta and a cash payment of $200,000.00 (the "Transaction"). The Transaction is expected to close on or about June 20, 2013, with an effective date of May 1, 2013, and is subject to regulatory and shareholder approvals.

The petroleum and natural gas assets contemplated for exchange under the Agreement are all of Relentless' net interests in 3,002 net acres of petroleum and natural gas rights located in the Loverna area of south-western Saskatchewan (the "Relentless Assets"), and (i) all of Privateco's interests in 10,842 net acres of petroleum and natural gas interests located in the Willesden Green area of Alberta, (ii) all of Privateco's interests in 26,363 net acres of undeveloped petroleum and natural gas interests located in the Gilby area of Alberta, (iii) all of Privateco's interests in 4,798 net acres of undeveloped petroleum and natural gas interests located in the Killam area of Alberta, (iv) all of Privateco's interests in 4,000 net acres of undeveloped petroleum and natural gas interests located in the Pine Creek area of Alberta, (v) all of Privateco's interests in 3,200 net acres of undeveloped petroleum and natural gas interests located in the Wembly area of Alberta, and (vi) all of Privateco's interests in 4,520, net acres of undeveloped petroleum and natural gas interests located in various other areas of Alberta (collectively, the petroleum and natural gas interests of Privateco are referred to as the "Privateco Assets"). The Relentless Assets include 4 (3.02 net) producing oil and natural gas wells, representing an average net April 2013 production rate of approximately 25 boes/d, while the Privateco Assets include 5.0 (3.91 net) producing oil and natural gas wells and 8 suspended wells, representing an average net April 2013 production rate of approximately 50 boes/d, which includes 30 bbls/d of crude oil production. All Privateco's oil and natural gas production comes from the Willesden Green area of Alberta (the "Willesden Green Area").

The independent engineering firm of Insite Petroleum Consultants Ltd. ("Insite") prepared a report (the "InSite Report") evaluating the crude oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids ("NGLs") interests of Privateco in the Willesden Green Area, with an effective date of December 31, 2012 and a preparation date of March 8, 2013. The tables below summarize Privateco's crude oil, natural gas and NGLs reserves in the Willesden Green Area and the net present value of future net revenue attributable to such reserves, as evaluated by InSite, based on forecast prices and costs assumptions. The information set forth below is prepared in accordance with standards contained in the Canadian Oil and Gas Evaluation Handbook prepared jointly by the Society of Petroleum Evaluation Engineers (Calgary Chapter) and the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy & Petroleum (the "COGE Handbook") and the reserve definitions contained in National Instrument 51-101 Standards of Disclosure for Oil and Gas Activities ("NI 51-101") adopted by the Canadian Securities Administrators and the COGE Handbook.

The net present value of future net revenue attributable to Insite's reserves is stated without provision for interest costs and general and administrative costs, but after providing for estimated royalties, production costs, development costs, other income, future capital expenditures, and well abandonment costs for only those wells assigned reserves by InSite. It should not be assumed that the undiscounted or discounted net present value of future net revenue attributable to Insite's reserves estimated by InSite represent the fair market value of those reserves. Other assumptions and qualifications relating to costs, prices for future production and other matters are summarized herein. Actual reserves may be greater than or less than the estimates provided herein.

The following tables summarize the data contained in the InSite Report and as a result may contain slightly different numbers than such report due to rounding. Also due to rounding, certain columns may not add exactly. The InSite Report is based on certain factual data supplied by Insite and InSite's opinion of reasonable practice in the industry. InSite accepted this data as presented and neither title searches nor field inspections were conducted by InSite.

The forward-looking information in this Press Release describes Relentless' expectations as of the date of this Press Release.

Material factors which could cause actual results or events to differ materially from such forward-looking information include, among others, the failure to obtain shareholder or regulatory approvals, risks arising from general economic conditions and adverse industry events, risks arising from operations generally, changes in plans with respect to exploration or development projects or capital expenditures; the uncertainty of reserve estimates; the uncertainty of estimates and projections relating to production, costs and expenses, and health, safety and environmental risks), commodity price and exchange rate fluctuations; reliance on contractual rights such as licenses and leases in the conduct of its business, reliance on third parties, reliance on key personnel, possible failure of the business model or business plan or the inability to implement the business model or business plan as planned, competition, environmental matters, and insurance or lack thereof.

When relying on Relentless forward-looking information to make decisions, investors and others should carefully consider the foregoing factors and other uncertainties and potential events.

Barrels of oil equivalent (boe) is calculated using the conversion factor of 6 mcf (thousand cubic feet) of natural gas being equivalent to one barrel of oil. Boes may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A boe conversion ratio of 6 mcf:1 bbl (barrel) is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead. Given that the value ratio based on the current price of crude oil as compared to natural gas is significantly different from the energy equivalency of 6:1, utilizing a conversion on a 6:1 basis may be misleading as an indication of value.

Neither TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider (as that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
