Lakota announces emergence from restructuring

CALGARY, Dec. 2 /CNW/ - Lakota Resources Inc. ("Lakota" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has fulfilled all of its obligations in the Company's restructuring under the proposal provisions of the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act (Canada) (the "BIA"). On October 8, 2009, A. Farber & Partners Inc. ("Farber"), the Company's proposal trustee, issued a Certificate of Full Performance On Proposal to certify that Lakota had, as of that date, fully satisfied all of its requirements in the restructuring proceedings under the BIA. Following that date, Farber has been engaged in dealing with the Company's creditors, and, recently, has made significant distributions to all Lakota creditors with proven claims in the BIA restructuring.

Paul Conroy, President and Chief Executive Officer of Lakota, stated: "We are happy to put the restructuring chapter behind us and look forward seeing the Company returned to health. We wish to thank all of the stakeholders who stood by the Company through the restructuring proceedings."

Going forward, Lakota will focus on assessing the status of its operations in Tanzania and Canada, seeking sources of additional financing, bringing itself into compliance with its public company reporting obligations (including the completion of outstanding financial statements) and working to remove the cease trade order to which the Company is subject.

The Company intends to review opportunities to obtain a listing on a stock exchange as soon as it is able to complete additional funding and remedy its current filing deficiencies.
