("Blackdog" or "the Company")(TSX VENTURE:DOG) is pleased to announce that production from its Leduc Reef light oil exploration well (the "Leduc Well") near Sylvan Lake, Alberta commenced on Monday November 7, 2011.

Corcoran, President, commented: "Blackdog is very pleased with how the drilling, completion and tie-in processes for this 3000 metre deep exploration well have gone. The entire process from the commencement through to tie-in and first production was just over 10 weeks which is excellent. We look forward to updating the production rates from the well when the rates stabilize over the next few weeks."Blackdog Resources Ltd. is a junior oil and gas company focused on the exploration and development of light and medium oil properties in Southeast Saskatchewan and Alberta.
