VANCOUVER, May 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Compliance Energy Corporation
("Compliance" or the "Company") announces that the Board of Directors has
approved the adoption of an advance notice policy (the "Policy"), for the
purpose of providing shareholders, directors and management of Compliance with
a clear framework for nominating directors. The Policy is meant to: (i)
facilitate an orderly and efficient annual general or, where the need arises,
special meeting, process; (ii) ensure all shareholders receive adequate notice
of the director nominations and sufficient information with respect to all
nominees; and (iii) allow shareholders to register an informed vote having
been afforded reasonable time for appropriate deliberation.

The Policy contains a provision that requires advance notice to Compliance  in 
circumstances where  nominations  of persons  for  election to  the  board  of 
directors are made by shareholders  of Compliance. The Policy fixes  deadlines 
by which holders of record of common shares of Compliance must submit director
nominations  to  Compliance  prior  to  any  annual  or  special  meeting   of 
shareholders and sets forth the information that a shareholder must include in
the notice to Compliance for an effective nomination to occur. No person  will 
be eligible  for election  as a  director of  Compliance unless  nominated  in 
accordance with the provisions of the Policy.

The deadline for  notice to Compliance  in the  case of an  annual meeting  of 
shareholders is not less than 55 days prior to the date of the annual  meeting 
of shareholders; provided, however, that in the event that the annual  meeting 
of shareholders is to be held  on a date that is  less than 65 days after  the 
date on which the first public announcement of the date of the annual  meeting 
was made, notice may be made not later than the close of business on the  10th 
day following such public announcement.

In the case  of a special  meeting (which is  not also an  annual meeting)  of 
shareholders called  for the  purpose of  electing directors  (whether or  not 
called for any other  purposes), the deadline for  notice to Compliance is  no 
later than the close of  business on the 15th day  following the day on  which 
the first public announcement of the date of the special meeting was made.

At the  annual  and  special  meeting  to  be  held  on  June  20,  2013,  the 
shareholders of the Company will be  asked to ratify and confirm the  adoption 
of the Policy. The Board has determined that the Policy is effective, and  in 
full force and effect as of May 16, 2013.

The full text of the Policy  is available via SEDAR under Compliance's  issuer 
profile at www.sedar.com or upon request  by contacting the President &  Chief 
Executive Officer at (604) 689-0489.

term is  defined  in  the  Policies  of  the  TSX  Venture  Exchange)  accepts 
responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release. This release  may 
include  certain  statements  that  may  be  deemed  to  be   "forward-looking 
statements".  All  statements  in  this  release,  other  than  statements  of 
historical facts, that address events  or developments that management of  the 
Company expect, are forward-looking statements.

                          FORWARD LOOKING STATEMENTS

This release  contains  "forward-looking  statements" within  the  meaning  of 
applicable  Canadian  securities   legislation.  Forward-looking   statements 
include, but are not limited to, statements that address activities, events or
developments that the Company expects or anticipates will or may occur in  the 
future, future  mineral  exploration  activities,  future  business  strategy, 
competitive strengths, goals, expansion,  growth of the Company's  businesses, 
operations, plans  and with  respect to  exploration results,  the timing  and 
success of exploration activities generally, permitting time lines, government
regulation of exploration  and mining operations,  environmental risks,  title 
disputes or claims,  limitations on  insurance coverage,  timing and  possible 
outcome of any pending  litigation and timing and  results of future  resource 
estimates or future economic studies. Often, but not always,  forward-looking 
statements can  be identified  by  the use  of  words such  as  "anticipates", 
"plans", "planning",  "planned", "expected"  or "looking  forward", "does  not 
expect",  "continues",  "scheduled",   "estimates",  "forecasts",   "intends", 
"potential", "anticipates", "does not anticipate", or "belief", or describes a
"goal", or variation of such words and phrases or state that certain  actions, 
events or results "may", "could", "would",  "might" or "will" be taken,  occur 
or be achieved.

Forward-looking statements  are based  on  a number  of material  factors  and 
assumptions, including  the receipt  of necessary  regulatory approvals,  that 
counterparties to  material agreements  will  duly perform  their  obligations 
there  under,  the  results  of  drilling  and  exploration  activities,  that 
contracted parties provide  goods and/or  services on  the agreed  timeframes, 
that equipment necessary for  exploration is available  as scheduled and  does 
not incur  unforeseen break  downs, that  no labour  shortages or  delays  are 
incurred, that  plant and  equipment function  as specified,  that no  unusual 
geological or technical problems occur, and that laboratory and other  related 
services are available and perform as contracted. Forward-looking  statements 
involve known and unknown risks, future events, conditions, uncertainties  and 
other factors which may cause the actual results, performance or  achievements 
to be materially  different from any  future results, prediction,  projection, 
forecast,  performance   or  achievements   expressed   or  implied   by   the 
forward-looking  statements.   Such  factors   include,  among   others,   the 
interpretation and actual results  of current exploration activities;  changes 
in project  parameters as  plans  continue to  be  refined; future  prices  of 
minerals; possible variations in grade or recovery rates; failure of equipment
or processes to operate as anticipated;  the failure of contracted parties  to 
perform; labour disputes  and other risks  of the mining  industry; delays  in 
obtaining  governmental  approvals  or  financing  or  in  the  completion  of 
exploration, as  well as  those factors  disclosed in  the company's  publicly 
filed documents.  Although the  Company has  attempted to  identify  important 
factors  that  could  cause  actual  actions,  events  or  results  to  differ 
materially from those  described in forward-looking  statements, there may  be 
other factors that cause actions, events or results not to be as  anticipated, 
estimated  or  intended.  There  can  be  no  assurance  that  forward-looking 
statements will prove  to be  accurate, as  actual results  and future  events 
could  differ   materially  from   those  anticipated   in  such   statements. 
Accordingly, readers  should  not  place  undue  reliance  on  forward-looking 
statements.
