Maxim Resources

Maxim Resources has been notified by the project operator, Jasmin Oil, the completion rig has arrived at the F25CH-7 well. Stimulation and testing operations will commence at the well, located in the South Erin Field of Trinidad W.I., immediately.

Arthur Brown, President and CEO of Maxim said, "We successfully drilled to a depth of 6,000 feet. The well has been logged and several potential pay zones have been encountered."

Production casing has been run, and the well will require two to three weeks of testing to determine flow rates.

"While the big players Petro-Canada, Canadian Superior, Talisman, BHP, BP and others are focusing on new bids and existing production offshore of Trinidad and Tobago", continued Mr. Brown, "Maxim and our partners, New Scotland, felt the smaller leases onshore in Trinidad were being overlooked."

Maxim will earn a 69% interest before payout of CDN $1,017,000 and a 41% interest after payout in approximately 1350 acres.

In closing, Mr. Brown added, "We have a comfortable cash position with a steady and building revenue stream. This allows Maxim's geological, engineering and land team to evaluate other exploration prospects in our existing areas of operation as well as other opportunities worldwide."
