Northern Sun Continues Exploration Program

Northern Sun Exploration Company Inc. is continuing its exploration and capital expenditure program on the Company's property near Grouard, Alberta.

The exploration program includes four gas test wells to be drilled immediately on the property to depths of approximately 850 meters, targeting multi-zone gas prospects. Pending success of the initial four wells, additional follow-up locations will be pursued. The Company's working interests in these wells range from 23% to 100% as a result of a regional pooling arrangement with industry partners.

Northern Sun has also granted a total of 1,575,000 options to purchase capital stock in the Company at a price of $0.55 per common share to its directors and to its consultants. The granting of the options represents approximately 4.7% of the issued share capital of the Company.
