Octagon 88 Resources and CEC North Star Release Successful Results of the Bluesky/Gething Cores - AGAT Laboratory Analysis Business Wire NEW YORK -- April 8, 2013 Octagon 88 Resources Inc (OCTX) and CEC North Star Energy Ltd are pleased to announce the AGAT laboratories results on the successful Bluesky/ Gething well cores confirm Primary Production methods to be implemented in 2013.

"The lab analysis verified a API of the oil at 10.73 and viscosity at formation conditions of less than 50,000 cp and additional testing established good response to testing. These results are in the range of primary production recovery or "coldflow" projects." (Graphic: Business Wire) Summary of AGAT Results of Bluesky/Gething Well Location : 08-12-091-22W5M “Excellent cap rock with oil and gas traces present in all the cores taken after entering the zone. Overall 30 meters of oil bearing sands and sand/shales were identified containing two high quality sand zones with intermediate zones containing shale stringers. The only water contact was at the very bottom of the zone. The lab analysis verified an API of the oil at 10.73 and viscosity at formation conditions of less than 50,000 cp and additional testing established good response to testing. These results are in the range of primary production recovery or “coldflow” projects. Rock analysis underway now will provide us with the permeability. At a minimum we believe we have established a SAGD or CSS project but have many reasons to believe initial primary production will be established enhancing the economics.” -CEC North Star Technical Team The Company’s next step is to proceed with laboratory simulation carried out by extensive 3^rd party modeling to produce the optimal secondary production methods providing recovery rates of 40%-60%. The fore mentioned recovery rates have been proven in the Bluesky formation by companies like Royal Dutch Shell and Pennwest. The Company has now commissioned a 3D seismic program to be implemented in the summer months of 2013, ultimately leading to the licensing of two to six wells for primary production in the 4^th quarter of 2013. The results of the second targeted well, the Elkton Erosional Edge are being analyzed and is anticipated to be released by the Company shortly. These first two projects combined will target scaled development possibilities of 50,000 barrels per day of conventional heavy oil production beginning this year. Octagon 88 Resources In 2012 / 2013 Octagon 88 Resources, Inc. acquired substantial light and conventional heavy oil assets in Northern Alberta. The acquired projects have been substantially de-risked which leads the company to emerge as a development stage oil and gas company as of January 22, 2013. The company’s intention is to grow shareholder value through mergers and acquisitions opportunities available to the company. Octagon 88 Resources is the largest publicly trading shareholder of CEC North Star Ltd. with a 33% ownership. The current program schedule entails working with the operator of these properties to bring on production and cash flow through the company’s direct working interests, and indirect investments spread throughout the projects. CEC North Star CEC North Star Energy Ltd is a non-public Calgary based Energy Corporation with a substantial oilsands lease holding in the Peace River block of north western Alberta Canada. CEC North Star has acquired sixty-seven (67) sections respectively 39,040 acres of leaseholds with a prospective resource of 873 MM bbl (Best Estimate) PIIP in the Elkton Debolt formations based on a 25 section independent analysis. The same independent petroleum engineering firm conducted a feasibility study 139 Mil (NPV @ 10% fully risked) based on a typical four sections development of the Elkton/Debolt. In addition the property is prospective for Bluesky/Gething oil sands formations which may lead to early primary production development similar to other projects in the Peace River Block offering significant production potential. CEC North Star has entered into joint venture on adjoining properties consisting of 23 sections or 14,720 acres which may increase PIIP (Petroleum Initially in Place) to in excess of three (3) billion barrels. CEC North Star goals of ultimately 200,000 bbl/d of bitumen from these lands and objectives are to create value by developing these oilsands properties using scalable project development targeting multiple 5-10,000 bbl/d facilities with stakeholder involvement at every stage – Environment, Occupational Health and Safety are of paramount concern. Use of known technologies while remaining flexible to adopt new processes to maximize recovery of oil in place while reducing operating costs and a relatively quick schedule and lower capital costs compared to other oilsand projects resulting in maximum return on capital invested and quicker shareholder returns Forward-looking Statements: This press release contains forward-looking statements concerning future events and the Company's growth and business strategy.Words such as "expects," "will," "intends," "plans," "believes," "anticipates," "hopes," "estimates," and variations on such words and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements.
