NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWS WIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATATION IN THE UNITED STATES


Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada, October 14, 2010: Georox Resources Inc. ("Georox" or the "Corporation") (GXR:TSX-V; OF6A:FRA) is pleased to announce that on October 14, 2010 it closed its previously announced non-brokered private placement (the "First Private Placement") of 6,000,000 units of the Corporation ("First Private Placement Units") at a subscription price of $0.22 per First Private Placement Unit and its previously announced non-brokered private placement (the "Second Private Placement") of 4,000,000 units of the Corporation ("Second Private Placement Units") at a subscription price of $0.30 per Second Private Placement Unit, for aggregate gross proceeds from the First Private Placement and the Second Private Placement of $2,520,000. Both the First Private Placement and the Second Private Placement were fully subscribed and the proceeds of such private placements will be used for general working capital purposes.

Each First Private Placement Unit is comprised of one common share of the Corporation (a "Common Share") and one-half of one Common Share purchase warrant (each whole Common Share purchase warrant a "First Private Placement Warrant"). Each whole First Private Placement Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share at a price of $0.40 per Common Share at any time prior to 4:30 p.m. (Calgary time) on October 14, 2012.

Each Second Private Placement Unit is comprised of one Common Share and one Common Share purchase warrant (a "Second Private Placement Warrant"). Each Second Private Placement Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share at a price of $0.50 per Common Share at any time prior to 4:30 p.m. (Calgary time) on October 14, 2011.

All securities issued pursuant to both the First Private Placement and the Second Private Placement are subject to a hold period of four months following the date of closing, in accordance with applicable securities laws. An aggregate of approximately $145,950 in finders' fees was paid to certain parties with respect to such private placements.



After giving effect to the both the First Private Placement and the Second Private Placement, the Corporation has 26,631,186 Common Shares issued and outstanding. An additional 7,000,000 Common Shares have been reserved for issuance pursuant to the First Private Placement Warrants and the Second Private Placement Warrants.

Directors and officers of the Corporation purchased an aggregate of 709,090 in First Private Placement Units and 26,667 in the Second Private Placement Units.

As a result to the participation by directors and officers in the financing, the Offering is a "related party transaction" pursuant to Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions, which is incorporated into the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV"). Accordingly, absent an available exemption, Georox would be required to obtain minority approval and a formal valuation for the Private Placement. Such an exemption is available to Georox, as at the time the transaction was agreed to, neither the fair market value of the subject matter of, nor the fair market value consideration for the transaction, insofar as it involves interested parties, exceeds 25% of Georox’s market capitalization.
