Great Pacific acquires additional Haro East-area targets

    LADNER, BC, Sept. 15 /CNW/ - Great Pacific International Inc. ("Great
Pacific", the "Company") is pleased to announce the acquisition, pursuant to a
farm-out agreement, of earn-in rights to three sections of petroleum and
natural gas rights adjoining our existing Haro East project. These sections
acquired are prospective for Bluesky-zone natural gas.
    Pursuant to this farm-out agreement, Great Pacific has the right to drill
the initial test well on or before January 4, 2009, subject to access.
Drilling the initial well to the depth of the Banff formation will earn us the
right to drill up to two additional sections immediately following rig release
of the initial test well.
    The Company will earn a 100% working interest in each well drilled,
subject to a convertible 15% royalty reserved to the farmor.
    As described in our press release dated January 11, 2008, our Haro East
project is located in the Peace River area of Alberta, near Township 103.
Great Pacific believes that the opportunity to expand the Haro East project
through the acquisition of these adjacent targets will improve the economics
of our operations in this area.

    On behalf of the Board,

    "Thal S. Poonian"
    Thal S. Poonian, President
