SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA--(Marketwired - May 22, 2013) - AusTex Oil Limited ("AusTex" or the "Corporation") (ASX:AOK) (TSX VENTURE:ATO) (OTCQX:ATXDY) is pleased to announce that the Corporation's ordinary shares will be listed and posted for trading on the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV") at the opening of trading on Wednesday, 22 May, 2013 under the symbol ATO.

AusTex's shares will continue to trade normally on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX:AOK) as well in the United States through the Over-The-Counter marketplace (OTCQX:ATXDY).

Commenting on the pending listing on the TSX Venture Exchange, Executive Chairman Richard Adrey commented: "The level of investor interest in Canada and North America for companies with exposure to the resurgent US oil and gas industry is significant. A TSX-V listing gives these investors a mechanism to invest in AusTex in a convenient time zone and through an exchange in North America that has the capacity to deliver the necessary liquidity.

"That said, we remain fully committed to our investors in Australia and this is a very important market for AusTex. As the company continues to grow, we see real benefits from having a dual listed structure. This has been proven by ASX-listed companies with similar asset profiles to AusTex that have also pursued a listing on the TSX-V."
