Thursday, August 24th 2006

The Company is pleased to announce that it has farmed-out a working interest in its 100%-owned, 2 3/4 section Paddle River prospect to an independent industry partner. The farm-out agreement calls for the farmee to provide 75% of the drilling, completion, and tie-in funds in return for 37.5% of production. The farmee also has an option to participate in additional wells within the prospect. The Paddle River prospect targets the Edmonton/Scollard/Belly River sands which are evident on logs from wells previously drilled on the subject lands. A drilling rig is currently moving to the prospect and two test wells are to be drilled within 2 weeks of this release.

The Company further announces that, consistent with its objective of acquiring high working interest prospects, it has acquired a 100% interest in two additional sections of land at a recent government land sale.
