Joffre, Alberta

At Joffre, the Company has drilled, cased and cemented its previously announced, 650 metre Horseshoe Canyon CBM well at Township 39, Range 25 W4. Cased-hole logging, perforation, stimulation, and testing operations are expected to begin within the next three weeks.

Lacombe, Alberta

At Lacombe, Township 39, Range 25 W4, the Company has drilled, cased, and cemented another Horseshoe Canyon CBM well to a depth of approximately 650 metres. This is the second well drilled at Lacombe where the Company owns a 10.5% working interest. Completion operations will coincide with the Joffre work schedule to minimize completion costs.

Commenting on recent activities, Shelby Beattie, President of Emerald Bay, said: “Q4 2008 looks to be our most-active drilling quarter in the Company’s history. Lacombe is another in-fill, low risk location that meets our development profile for the remainder of 2008 and early 2009.”
