Altima Announces Amendment to Agreement to Acquire Crimson Oil and Gas Ltd., and Provides Project Update

Newsfile Corp.

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - March 28, 2019) - Altima Resources Ltd. (TSXV: ARH) (the "Company" or "Altima") announces an amendment has been made to its proposed acquisition from Crimson Energy Ltd. ("Crimson") of all of the issued and outstanding shares in the capital stock of Crimson Oil and Gas Ltd. ("COGL"), a private Alberta corporation wholly owned by Crimson (the "Acquisition"). Refer to News Releases dated September 18, 2018 and February 13, 2019.

In consideration for the Acquisition, the Company has agreed to pay Crimson the reduced sum of $750,000 (instead of $1,500,000) in cash, with no common shares being proposed to be issued, subject to acceptance for filing by the TSX Venture Exchange.

The Company also is pleased to announce that results from our weather abbreviated winter work program have had good results. The Company recompleted and/or reworked four (4) oil wells, and has increased production by approximately 57 BOE per day. As a result of the dramatic end to winter access on the Company's northern lands, the remaining oil projects have now been deferred to after the 2019 spring breakup.
