Readers are cautioned to refer to the original reports found on Sedar for

    The addition in reserves during 2007 are only for the properties acquired

effective dates of the reserve reports.


    The TSX Venture Exchange has neither approved nor disapproved of the
contents hereof.
    Use of the term barrels of oil equivalent ("boe") or thousands of cubic
feet of gas equivalent ("Mcfe") may be misleading, particularly if used in
isolation. A boe conversion ratio of 6 Mcf: 1bbl is based on an energy
equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does
not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead.
