    CALGARY, April 26 /CNW/ - Platform Resources Ltd. (the "Company")
(TSXV: PFM) is pleased to announce that, subject to regulatory approvals, it
intends to increase the maximum amount of its proposed non-brokered private
placement to $5.0 million (the "Private Placement") by issuing up to
10,000,000 common shares on a "flow through" basis (the "Shares") at a price
of $0.50 per Share.
    On April 10, 2007, the Company originally proposed a non-brokered private
placement in the amount of $3.0 million. However, due to the interest

aggregate amount to $5.0 million. There is no minimum number of Shares that
must be subscribed for under the terms of the Private Placement for the
Private Placement to close and the Company may have more than one closing in
respect of the Private Placement. The Private Placement is now expected to
close on or about May 3rd, 2007. Under the terms of the Private Placement, the
Company may pay certain fees in connection with the financing on terms and
conditions determined by the Company and in accordance with the policies of
the TSX Venture Exchange.
    Proceeds from the Private Placement will be used to fund the exploration
and development of the Company's oil and gas properties in Western Canada
including its Athabasca oil sands lands.
