“This new website will enable us to provide all our shareholders, local communities, media and other interested parties with a comprehensive resource for keeping up-to-date with the company’s progress,” said Mr. Richard Cottee, Austin Exploration’s Chairman of the Board.

The new website will feature profiles of exploration and production projects in operation and planning phases, investor relations information, regularly updated stock information and media resources.
