TSX Venture: AUL
VANCOUVER, Sept. 27 /CNW/ - Austin Developments Corp. (the "Company") and
it's joint venture partner, Pennant Energy Inc. (TSX.V-PEN) together known as
the "The Companies" are pleased to announce that they have expanded their
Bronson Property land holdings by successful bidding at the September 19th,
2007, Alberta Crown land sale.
Prior to the recent land sale the Companies held two closely offsetting
but non contiguous land blocks (Kaybob and Bronson) in the area totaling
1600 acres. When the Companies initially gained control of the two blocks
there was only limited, incomplete 3D seismic coverage of the lands;
therefore, two extensive 3D seismic surveys were conducted during the winter
2007 to assess the exploration potential of the two acreage blocks. The winter
2007 3D surveys not only completed coverage of the interest acreage but were
expanded to evaluate the potential for oil and gas on several of the bordering
lands. Interpretation of the new 3D seismic data resulted in identifying
several areas of interest on our existing Bronson property and as well, on a
bordering section of Crown land to the east. Based on the favorable 3D seismic
results over the Crown acreage the decision was made to post the lands for
auction. To assist in determining how aggressively to bid, the Companies also
conducted extensive Geochem surveys over the lands. The Companies are pleased
to announce that we were successful in acquiring the 640 acre Crown section.
Henceforth, the Bronson property will be referred to as "Bronson West",
comprising section 13 and E/2 section 14, Twp 58-17W5, while the newly
acquired land, section 7-58-16W5, will be referred to as "Bronson East".
Bronson East is a 640 acre contiguous property located south east of the
Companies existing Bronson West Property. With positive results from both the
Geochem survey and the 3D seismic survey the Company has identified several
potential drill targets and is reviewing all of the data acquired to date. To
