SASKATOON, Dec. 12, 2012 /CNW/ - 49 North Resources Inc. ("49 North" or
the "Company") (TSXV: FNR) announces the commencement of a 6 well
drilling program (the "program") on the Riverside property owned by
Allstar Energy Limited ("Allstar"), a 100% owned subsidiary of 49
The target locations were selected in the Success formation based on the
results of the 3D seismic testing announced on September 25, 2012.
Using this interpreted 3D seismic data, the first well in the program
was drilled 400 meters north of a producing recompleted well in the
southwestern portion of the Riverside land package. Drilling
encountered an oil bearing zone of approximately 40 meters. The second
well in the program was drilled a further 600 meters north of the first
well (1,000 meters north of the recompleted well) and encountered an
oil bearing zone of approximately 32 meters.
Drilling of the 6 well program is anticipated to be completed by the end
of December 2012. Production completions will be initiated next week.
Ashley Drobot P.Geo, the President and CEO of Allstar states "We are
very pleased with the drilling outcome of the first two wells in the
six well program. The results aid in proving our thesis that the areal
extent of oil in place in the Riverside field is extensive, as shown in
the interpreted 3D seismic data".
