Tesla Exploration Ltd. ("Tesla" or the "Company") announces that it has received a demand from its Canadian lender (the "Lender") for repayment of all outstanding indebtedness with the exception of the leasing facilities under the Company's Canadian credit facility (the "Credit Facility").

On July 22, 2016, the Lender issued a demand letter and notice under the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act whereby the Lenders set forth their intent to enforce their security for repayment of all amounts owing under the Credit Facility.

These steps are expected to include the appointment of Ernst & Young Inc. as a receiver and such receiver will be in charge of managing the day-to-day affairs of the Company.
