Strongbow Adds Key Technical and Operations Personnel

VANCOUVER, BC -- (Marketwired) -- 04/25/14 -- Strongbow Resources Inc. ("Strongbow" or the "Company") (OTCQB: STBR) is pleased to announce that it has entered into agreements with Mr. Frank Muller and Mr. Chris Holben to form the core of a new technical and operating team. The team's primary focus will be to identify, evaluate, capture and operate further oil and gas growth opportunities in Western Canada.

Mr. Muller is a professional geoscientist who obtained his Bachelor of Science in Geology with Honors from St. Francis Xavier University in Nova Scotia, Canada in 1984. He has 29 years of geoscience, managerial and corporate experience with the ability to lead and build opportunities for oil and gas companies. He began his career at Chevron as a geologist prior to contributing to the success of Hillcrest, Jordan and Real Resources. Most recently, as co-founder and Senior VP Exploration of Westfire Energy Ltd., Mr. Muller and his colleagues transformed 150 boepd into 11,000 boepd (75 percent oil) and then merged with Guide in to form Long Run in a deal valued at $610 million.

Mr. Holben obtained his Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from the University of Saskatchewan, Canada and also studied Engineering at the University of Calgary, Canada. He has extensive experience in operations and field development dating back to 1993. His leadership, field operations knowledge and excellent working relationships have resulted in growing production and assets while assisting company's field operations run more efficiently. As a highly respected community-oriented resident of Saskatchewan, Mr. Holben has contributed to the success of Nexen, Dynamic/Shellbridge, K-Town and, most recently, Westfire Energy Ltd.

Both Muller and Holben have proven success in the Viking horizontal light oil play in Alberta and Saskatchewan and between them have initiated and placed on production in excess of 400 Viking horizontal oil wells. They have broad exposure to a wide variety and scope of other oil and gas plays in Western Canada. Their technical and operating experience, in addition to nurturing excellent ongoing relationships in Calgary and in the field operating areas, will assist in furthering the Company's objectives.

Michael Caetano, President & CEO, commented, "Strongbow welcomes Mr. Muller and Mr. Holben to its operating team. They will help us to achieve our goals and we look forward to their contribution in growing the Company's oil and gas operations in Western Canada."

In addition, the Company has updated both its website and corporate presentation to provide an accurate representation of its current position.

Strongbow's strategy remains focused on developing quality energy projects with lower risk profiles and identified upside potential. Whereas its first Viking oil project is at Compeer, Alberta, the Company continues to search for additional Viking opportunities across east central Alberta and into west central Saskatchewan. Strongbow will continue to pursue those projects that provide the potential to maximize and grow shareholder value.
