Blackdog Resources Ltd. Updates Sylvan Lake Operations, Acknowledges Farm out Interest in Woking/Evi Properties

08:00 EDT Monday, June 03, 2013

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - June 3, 2013) - Blackdog Resources Ltd. ("Blackdog" or "the Company") (TSX VENTURE:DOG) is pleased to provide an update on our Sylvan Lake and Woking Properties.

In late March, 2013, the Company equipped its 100% owned light oil and liquid rich natural gas well at Sylvan Lake with a rod string and bottom hole pump. The Company also secured a large scale rental pump jack to test the well. However, at the last minute, the Operator of the pipeline was not comfortable with the unit Blackdog had secured for this test due to some concerns with regards to the wellhead attachment and sour gas nature of the well and as result would not allow its use. The Company scrambled and acquired a different smaller unit that was agreeable to the Operator. This unit proved to be undersized and did not function to the standards the Company required. However, even with this undersized unit the well produced economic quantities of oil, gas and gas liquids during the test period. The Company is quite pleased with the results of the test and is eagerly anticipating installing a proper unit. The Company has now secured a properly sized hydraulic pumping unit which is agreeable to the Operator and expects to have this unit installed in the next 5-7 days or sooner if the current heavy rains in Alberta subside and the lease becomes accessible.

The Company has also recently received several inquiries on its light oil properties at Woking and Evi. The Company is currently reviewing farm out offers on several potential new oil bearing zones on both properties.
