Exile Resources Inc. Spuds Well in Eastern Turkey

TORONTO, April 28 /CNW/ - Exile Resources Inc. (TSXV: ERI) today announced that, with partner Valeura Energy Inc. and operator Aladdin Middle East Ltd., it had spud the Company's first exploration well, Bostanci-1, on April 24, 2011 in Turkey. This well is located in the southern most corner of the Rubai License 2600 adjacent to the borders with Iraq and Syria.

"The Bostanci structure is a large surface anticline, with Cretaceous Mardin limestones interpreted to lie within the core of the structure as the reservoir target," said Tony Henshaw, President and CEO, of Exile Resources.

Due to surface location constraints, the Bostanci wellsite is located to the north of the target and will require a deviated well, of approximately 11,400 feet measured depth, to reach the interpreted reservoir level. This is expected to take approximately 70-80 days to drill. Exile and Valeura are sharing equally the drilling costs of the well, estimated to be $6.2 million excluding completion and cased-hole testing. This expenditure would take Exile's equity to just under 29%.

The Ogunduk area is still under evaluation, as the partners continue to evaluate the results from the seismic program and consider other leads on the License area.
