CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Feb. 24, 2014) -


Poplar Creek Resources Inc. ("Poplar" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:PCK), "PCK" on the TSX Venture Exchange, announces that following the disposition of the Twoco complex assets effective October 1st, 2013, the Company has had no cash flow and proceeds from the sale have been expended on the considerable costs associated with being a publically reporting company. The board of directors has been actively pursuing numerous opportunities to find and fund an ongoing business plan through examination of potential mergers or disposition of assets. The continuing viability of the Company is dependent on effecting a reverse take-over or injection of capital and the state of the equity markets does not appear to be conducive to the financing of micro-sizes resource companies like Poplar. To fund the operations and compliance, the directors have personally advanced funds and certain suppliers have continued to provide services. The board will continue to actively examine potential reverse takeover opportunities and other strategic alternatives but currently will not personally advance further funds.

The Company will make further announcements as events determine.
