Northern Sun Acquires Acreage in Core Areas

Northern Sun Exploration Company has acquired a total of six sections of land at recent crown land sales in Alberta and Saskatchewan adding approximately 3,840 total acres (1536 ha) to the Company's land package, increasing the Company's total acreage. Three of the recently acquired sections are adjoining to the Company's existing land holdings near Grouard, Alberta, with the remaining sections located in southwestern Saskatchewan. The Company has begun to seek the regulatory permits in order to drill the initial prospects on the newly acquired lands.

Pipeline tie-in and facility construction in the Grouard area is progressing, and production should commence next week.
