VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 18, 2012) - RockBridge Resources Inc. ("RockBridge" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:RBE), now having signed the formal Amalgamation Agreement to merge with Crimson Energy Ltd. (Crimson) of Calgary, as announced on July 9, 2012, is focussed on the regulatory and legal process to complete the merger. That process includes valuation and due diligence reviews as required to obtain Exchange approval and approval of the Crimson and RockBridge shareholders, together with all required legal documentation to close the merger. Trading in RockBridge shares has been halted in accordance with Exchange requirements and will remain halted until the required documents have been filed and approved by the Exchange.
In the meantime, with the formal Amalgamation Agreement now signed, RockBridge is stepping up the process to complete its current offering of up to $3.0 million of flow-through and non flow-through units at $0.05 each. Subject to regulatory approval, finder's fees of 10% will be paid on the financing to investment dealers or other qualified finders and 10% brokers' warrants to brokers with each warrant exercisable for two years for one regular share at $0.15.
RockBridge has completed the initial tranche of this financing and anticipates at least 2 more tranches to be completed in the next few weeks. Net proceeds from the financing will be used to fund the Company's 2012 summer and fall drilling operations and for general corporate purposes.
RockBridge's proposed 2012 drilling program includes participation in five (5) horizontal Cardium wells on the Company's East Pembina land block. Two of three pooling agreements are in place and the Company anticipates announcing the licencing of its horizontal Cardium wells in due course.

Reference to BOE means barrels of oil equivalent and is derived by converting gas to oil at the ratio of six thousand cubic feet (mcf) of gas to one barrel (bbl) of oil. BOEs may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A BOE conversion ratio of 6 mcf: 1 bbl is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner top and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead. References to BOEPD means barrels of oil equivalent per day.
