Dover Petroleum and Dover Petroleum's Wholly Owned Subsidiary, Slaterdome, Inc., Announce Drilling Programs

    TORONTO, June 19 /CNW/ -- Dover Petroleum Corp's (OTC: DVPC), wholly
owned subsidiary, Slaterdome, Inc., with major oil and gas properties in
Wyoming and Colorado, today announced that it, along with its exploration and
development partner, New Frontier Energy Inc., (OTC Bulletin Board:   NFEI), is
beginning a summer drilling program in the Slater Dome Field in Wyoming. The
Company's plan to drill more than 7 new wells this summer is right on target. 
A drill rig has been moved to the first location to begin operations
    The most current daily production report, dated June 6, 2007, records 751
MCF of gas production from the coalbed methane wells at the Slater Dome Field.
"The Slater Dome Prospect is ideally located geographically in the Sand Wash
Basin in northwest Colorado and southwest Wyoming in a geologic feature called
the 'Atlantic Rim' where a number of coalbed methane projects have been and
are being successfully operated," said Robert Salna, CEO.  Slaterdome's
ownership amounts to a net working and operating rights interest of
approximately 33.33% in the Slater Dome Area.
    Dover would also like to announce that an on-shore drilling rig is
currently contracted for Dover and Sea Dragon and will begin drilling as soon
as the drill pad is constructed in the East Wadi Araba (EWA) Concession
located in the Gulf of Suez, Egypt.  The rig is currently preparing to demob
and move to the EWA site, which is about a 10 day process. The target called
the EWA-4X well will be drilled from an onshore surface location and deviated
to test the potential of the following offshore intervals:

    1.  Post Zeit Sands
    2.  Belayim Dolomites
    3.  Cenomanian Sands
    4.  Nubia Sands
    5.  Fractured Basement

    Dover Petroleum anticipates that it will provide further updates as the
actual drilling of the 4X well commences, which is expected within 14 days.
