The purchase includes a GORR, land that is subject to the current farm-in agreement and 18 additional sections, for the purchase price of $2,000,000 cash. Following the completion of the transaction, 3MV will own a high working interest (mostly 100%) in 53 sections of land in the Fiske play of west central Saskatchewan.

The private placement will consist of convertible debentures, structured as a secured, interest-bearing loan of $2,000,000. The interest rate will be 12% per annum, calculated and payable monthly. The term will be 2 years, with the Company having a right to prepayment upon thirty (30) days notice. The loan will be convertible at any time until maturity into common shares of the Company at a conversion price of $0.27 per share.
The private placement is subject to the final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

Oil and Gas Disclosure
For the purpose of calculating unit costs, natural gas volumes have been converted to a barrel of oil equivalent ("BOE") using six thousand cubic feet equal to one barrel unless otherwise stated. A BOE conversion ratio of 6:1 is based upon an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead. BOEs may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation.
Neither TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider (as that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
