PYR Energy reports that the Bureau of Land Management ("BLM") has
suspended drilling activities at the Mallard Prospect in Uinta County,
Wyoming, effective December 1, 2004, due to wildlife critical winter range
restrictions. As a result, the well will be temporarily suspended and secured
in compliance with applicable federal and state regulations, until the
wildlife restrictions are lifted in mid-2005. At the time of suspension, the
Mallard test well had not reached the proposed total depth nor had it
encountered the targeted horizon of interest.
Denver based PYR Energy is an independent oil and gas company primarily
engaged in the exploration for and the development and production of natural
gas and crude oil. At the current time, PYR's activities include select areas
