ONLINE INVESTOR RELATIONS MAXIMIZES SPEED, TRANSPARENCY AND ACCESS TO COMPANY

In response to overwhelming data representing the online research and communications habits of small-cap investors, Continental Energy has turned the primary focus of its investor relations to the web via AGORACOM to facilitate faster, better and more accessible communications with both current and prospective shareholders around the world.

Effective September 24, 2009, a customized and monitored Continental Energy IR HUB will be available on AGORACOM at (http://agoracom.com/ir/continentalenergy ). The IR HUB will allow Continental Energy to communicate with all investors simultaneously, anytime and in near real-time through our electronic shareholder forum. This HUB will provide Continental Energy management with the ability to extend communications beyond text via audio messages, video presentations, webcasts and podcasts. In addition to traditional e-mail, investors will also have the ability to receive all communications via RSS feed.

LAUNCH OF CONTINENTAL ENERGY SHAREHOLDER COMMUNITY

The Continental Energy IR HUB propels the Company into the forefront of Web 2.0 investor relations by providing investors with two very important functions. First, a monitored discussion forum for the purposes of constructive and high-quality discussion amongst investors that is free of spam, profanity and misinformation. Second, a social network that provides investors with the ability to create extensive profiles that include photos, bios, video messages to fellow investors, a rating system and other important items to create a closer bond between our shareholders.

THE "AGORACOM 100"

On January 19th, AGORACOM launched a national TV, web and search engine marketing campaign to drive small-cap investors to the AGORACOM 100, an elite and exclusive group of great small-cap companies in which Continental Energy will be included. This marketing campaign will target main stream media including regular spots on BNN, CNBC TV, Bloomberg TV, Globe & Mail's GlobeInvestor.com, Google, Yahoo!, MSN, AOL, Facebook, AGORACOM and other Tier 1 media properties.
