Letho Announces Signing of Letter of Intent to Acquire Interest in Namibia Oil & Gas Licenses

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/27/14 -- Letho Resources Corp. ("Letho" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: LET) is pleased to announce that it has signed a letter of intent with Incan Energy Inc. ("Incan") whereby the parties have agreed to negotiate the definitive terms of an agreement for Letho to acquire all of Incan's working interest in certain Namibian Onshore Oil and Gas Licenses (the "Namibian Licenses"). Incan currently owns a 35% interest in six Namibian Licenses located within the Owambo Basin and a 33% interest in one additional Namibian License located in the Waterberg Basin. The total area of the Namibian Licenses is nearly 47,000 km2.

Under the terms of the letter of intent, the parties have agreed to settle the terms of an acquisition agreement within 120 days of signing of the letter of intent. The entry into definitive agreement will be subject to Letho completing due diligence to its satisfaction.

About the Namibian Licenses

The Republic of Namibia is situated in south-western Africa and has an onshore area of 825,715 km2 and approximately 1,500 km of shoreline. The hydrocarbon potential of this vast region remains virtually unexplored due to political uncertainties which affected the country prior to its independence in March, 1990. Namibia has since been a member of the United Nations and the Commonwealth of Nations, has a democratically elected government, political stability, good neighbour relations, and a positive realistic attitude towards foreign investment.

The Namibian Licenses are comprised of six onshore licenses located within the Owambo Basin with a total area of nearly 37,000 km2, and one onshore license located within the Waterberg Basin with a total area of nearly 10,000 km2.

The Owambo Basin is largely unexplored leaving opportunity for large concession acreage available for exploration where there is an active petroleum system present. Historically, oil was discovered in the Etosha well 5-1A (Block 1814) within the Owambo Basin, and locally there are other hydrocarbon indicators present which have been verified within the basin.

The Waterberg Basin is also unexplored, but has live gas shows in several shallow boreholes. The opportunity exists to further explore and define this smaller African-rift-type basin in better geological terms, with potential to find deeper and larger gas reserves.

Change of Officers

Mr. Robert Hall, a director of the Company, has been appointed to the position of President and CEO filling the vacancy created by the resignation of Mr. Brian Morrison and Brian Morrison, also a director of the Company, has been appointed to the position of Secretary and CFO filling the vacancy created by the resignation of Robert Hall. This change in the Company's officers was effected due to the Mr. Hall's extensive experience in the oil and gas field and his willingness to guide the Company as it proceeds to acquire the Namibian Licenses.

AGM Results

All ordinary resolutions and items of business presented to the shareholders, as more particularly described in the Company's Proxy Material, were duly passed at the Company's AGM held on June 25, 2014.
