VANCOUVER, May 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Compliance Energy Corporation
("Compliance" or the "Company) announces that its subsidiary, Compliance Coal
Corporation, on behalf of itself and its joint venture partners, I-Comox Coal
Inc. (a subsidiary of Itochu Corporation of Japan) and LG International
Investments (Canada) Limited (a subsidiary of LG International Corp. of Korea)
has received correspondence from the BC Environmental Assessment Office
regarding the initial screening of its Application for an Environmental
Assessment Certificate (the "Application") for the proposed Raven Underground
Coal Project. This correspondence is available on the Government of British
Columbia's Environmental Assessment Office ("EAO") website at .

In its  correspondence,  the  EAO  has  determined  that  at  this  stage  the 
Application does not yet  contain all of the  required information set out  in 
the Application Information Requirements ("AIR") and has decided not to accept
the Application for detailed  review at this time.  The screening review is  a 
scan of the Application for the  purposes of determining whether the AIR  have 
been met, and does not constitute an  in depth review to determine whether  or 
not issues have been addressed and resolved to EAO's satisfaction. Receipt  of 
Application screening comments  is typical  and not unexpected  after a  first 
review. The Company and  its consultants are in  the process of reviewing  the 
comments returned by the EAO and  plan to provide clarification or  additional 
information and  then resubmit  the Application  for further  review once  the 
comments have been adequately addressed.

                          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
