Gas Discovery Made at North Franklin Project

Silver Star Energy reports that the "Archer-Whitney #1" well discovered natural gas at the North Franklin Project. The well has reached total depth of 8,000 feet where a suite of electronic well logs was run. Based on a review of the logging data the Company and the operator of the project elected to run casing. Further testing of the gas bearing pay zone will be conducted during the well completion phase.

The North Franklin Project is located in the Sacramento Basin of California and is situated along the "Eastside Winters Stratigraphic Trend" which has produced in excess of 450 Bcf gas. The objective gas reservoir target at North Franklin is in the Winters Formation. Silver Star has a 40% interest in the play. The other partner in the North Franklin project is Fidelis Energy Inc.
