Freestone Resources, Inc. Announces Master Agreement With Hydrex Technologies

June 9, 2011 - DALLAS, TX

Freestone Resources, Inc. (OTCBB: FSNR) announced today that it has finalized a Master Agreement with Hydrex Technologies, LLC., a subsidiary of Hydrex Corp., which is based in San Antonio, Texas. The Agreement provides Hydrex with the license rights to specific territories in the United States to manufacture, own and operate thirty Oil Recovery Units (ORU) using Freestone Resources' proprietary technology. The Oil Recovery Units are designed to recover and extract crude oil from oil sands, contaminated soil, as well as oil from oil field tank bottom sludge and other oil waste depositories. Each ORU will be manufactured for a specific application and processing capacity.

The ORUs are designed as closed-loop systems that utilize environmentally friendly solvents to extract the maximum amount of hydrocarbons from the medium that they are processing. The ORUs will not utilize or require the use of steam, and no measurable air contaminants or emissions will be released into the atmosphere. Since each ORU will operate without steam, utilize limited energy, and recycle the solvents used in the process, they will provide an economic advantage compared to conventional oil separation systems.

"We are excited to begin the construction of our first commercial scale Oil Recovery Unit with Hydrex Technologies," said Clayton Carter, President of Freestone Resources. "This Agreement represents the culmination of Freestone's efforts to begin the construction of our first commercial scale ORU. We have had to leap over many hurdles to get this far, but through great determination and perseverance we feel that we have developed a technology that will help achieve our goals of extracting the vast amounts of oil from oil sands and sludge, while reducing oil production waste and having a positive impact on our environment. These are the common goals that we share with Hydrex, and I feel that our Agreement will allow us to achieve these goals through Hydrex's construction and operation of the Oil Recovery Units under its license from us."

"We are delighted to have consummated the Master Agreement with Freestone, and we are looking forward to furthering the development of Freestone's technology. The Freestone technology will advance Hydrex's goal of being part of the 'Green Solutions Movement' in cleaning up waste oil depositories, and moving the industry toward a cleaner environment," said Mark Woodward, President of Hydrex Corp.
