Each unit consists of one common share and a two year common share purchase warrant. Each common share purchase warrant entitles the holder to purchase a further common share in the Company at a price of $0.10 in the first year and at a price of $0.12 in the second year.

The shares issued pursuant to this placement, as well as any shares attained through warrant conversion, have a 120 day hold period that expires March 9, 2011.

The sole placee of this placement is Mr. Charles Haegelin. With this placement Mr. Haegelin has become a control person of Derek Oil and Gas Corporation with direct and indirect holdings of 41,302,800 common shares representing 41.5% of the now issued share capital.

Mr. Haegelin has been a shareholder and supporter of the Company since 2003. He believes in the long term viability of the Company's Lak Ranch Project and to that end, advanced this funding to enable the completion of upgrading the onsite steaming capacity to a level that Mr. Robert Hurkmans, the Company's COO, has determined necessary for successful production to be achieved from the Company's existing wells.

He is also an indirect minority interest owner of the Company's LAK Ranch Project.
