Gallic announces final approval of Australia exploration rights

    GALLIC ENERGY LTD. (TSX Venture Exchange: GLE.A)

    CALGARY, Jan. 19 /CNW/ - Gallic Energy Ltd. along with its wholly owned
subsidiaries (collectively, "Gallic" or the "Company") is pleased to announce
the award of exploration rights for Block L05-8 in the Canning Basin, Western
Australia. Gallic has been engaged in the application process for these
Canning Basin rights since 2006. The Canning Block comprises an area
approximately 294,000 hectares (726,489 acres). Gallic has identified
exploration potential that would be the focus of its anticipated future oil
exploration activities in the area.
    As a result of prolonged and un-encouraging responses from the relevant
authorities, Gallic has elected to discontinue its remaining, outstanding
permit application in western Europe. Gallic's objective is to now develop its
current inventory of oil and gas prospects in France and Australia and will
commence those efforts once it has completed the current private placement
    The common shares of Gallic Energy Ltd. are listed on the TSX Venture
Exchange under the symbol GLE.A.
