Will Re-Direct Investments to Louisiana-based Assets and Companies

LAFAYETTE, LA - OCTOBER 20, 2010 - RedHawk Energy Corporation ("RedHawk" or "Company") announced today the completion of the sale of its Texas-based oilfield services operations for approximately $66.0 million in cash, assumed bank indebtedness, certain equity securities and other consideration. With the completion of the sale, G. Darcy Klug, founder of RedHawk, will resume duties as the Company's Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer.

Commenting on completion of the sale, Klug said, "We acquired the Texas-based oilfield service operations in late 2009. After the acquisition, we returned the business unit to profitability which, in turn, dramatically improved cash flow from its operations. The improved cash flow allowed us to significantly reduce bank indebtedness which then positioned us for a sale of the business unit. The sale resulted in investment and cash returns in excess of our original objective. With completion of this sale, we will now direct our investment focus on Louisiana-based business opportunities. In this regard, we have been working with representatives from the Lafayette Economic Development Authority to evaluate certain investment opportunities."

RedHawk Energy Corporation was founded in 2008 to focus on acquiring and consolidating well-managed, smaller, undercapitalized onshore and offshore oilfield service and equipment companies with excellent reputations for quality and service.

By acquiring, consolidating and integrating these well-managed businesses, these acquisitions will have greater access to the capital necessary to not only withstand the current economic challenges facing the energy industry but they will now have available maintenance and growth capital, cross-selling opportunities and the ability to leverage the client relationships into new sales opportunities when they emerge from this economic slowdown.

Commenting on RedHawk's decision to re-direct its investment focus on Louisiana business opportunities, Gregg Gothreaux, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Lafayette Economic Development Authority, said "RedHawk Energy's decision to sell Texas-based assets and focus their effort in Louisiana further cements Lafayette's position as an energy hub for the southeastern United States. As RedHawk works to integrate equipment manufacturing and service companies, they will undoubtedly grow while offering more efficient service to their customers. Having a company with forward-thinking leaders, such as those at RedHawk, is a definite asset for Lafayette's business community."
