VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 3, 2012) - Xemplar Energy Corp.

The purchase agreement between the Company and the vendors of the Lobo Property (the "Purchase Agreement") was dated June 5, 2012 and the vendors of the Lobo Property had previously extended the closing date under the Purchase Agreement several times. The last such extension ran through October 2, 2012. The vendors of the Lobo Property proposed a further amendment to the Purchase Agreement to extend closing yet again upon certain conditions. However, no agreed-upon extension to the closing date had been reached.
