Georox Acquires Additional Alberta Producing Lands

/NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWS WIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES/

KELOWNA, BC, May 3 /CNW/ - Georox Resources Inc. ("Georox" or the "Company") (GXR:TSX-V; OF6A:FRA) is pleased to announce that it has completed an acquisition of oil and gas interests located in the Hays Area, SE Alberta (the "Assets") from an arms-length company. Georox paid $605,000 for the Assets.

The Assets include a 4.2% working interest in 2 3/4 sections of land and 3 Nisku producing light oil wells in the Hays Arcs T, Y Pool as well as a 30% working interest in one other Nisku light oil well in the area. The wells are currently producing 120 barrels/day of light oil and 40 Mcf/d of solution natural gas (10.8 boepd net to the Company). The Assets are operated by industry third parties. The company believes there is potential to drill up to three additional development wells on the acquired lands plus additional potential in other formations within the current well bores.

The Company also announces a delay in the drilling of wells in the Farmout Lands (as per the company's news release dated /September 28, 2009) located in the Province of Saskatchewan by its joint venture partners. The reason for the delay is due to ongoing negotiations for the pooling of lands with an adjacent producer to form a larger area of common interest by the joint venture partners. Shareholders will be informed of the spudding date accordingly.
