Snatcher-1 Spuds on ACOR’s ORRI under PEL 111 in South Australia Business Wire CISCO, Texas -- June 23, 2009 Australian-Canadian Oil Royalties Ltd. (herein called ACOR) (OTCBB:AUCAF) is pleased to announce that the operator, Victoria Petroleum N.L. (Vicpet) for the PEL 111 Joint Venture advises that the Century Drilling Rig #3 commenced drilling of the Snatcher-1 exploration well in PEL 111 on June 14^th 2009. Current operation was drilling at approximately 4,016 feet. Snatcher-1 is testing the oil bearing potential of the Snatcher Prospect adjacent to the Santos Limited operated Charo Field in PPL 177. The PPL 177 license is wholly contained within PEL 111 on ACOR’s ORRI. ACOR owns a 1/10^th of 1% ORRI under PEL 111 covering approx. 292,819 gross acres. The Snatcher Prospect is situated on the Western Margin Oil Trend, with Snatcher-1 a test of weather oil can be stratigraphically trapped within seismically interpreted discrete sand bodies in channel systems present within the Jurassic Birkhead Formation. Sands of the Birkhead Formation are the producing horizon for the Growler Oil Field, approximately 3.86 miles to the south west. Snatcher-1 is located in the mid portion of PEL 111. The Snatcher Prospect is approximately ¼ (+/-) of 1 mile of the Santos Charo Oil Field, approximately 2.31 miles north of the Tigercat-1 and Warhawk-1 oil discoveries in the adjacent PEL 104 and approximately 3.86 miles north-east of the Growler Oil Production Facility in PRL 15, currently producing 868 barrels of oil per day. Snatcher-1 is being drilled to partly satisfy the PEL 111 Year Five work commitment of three exploration wells. Snatcher-1 is planned to be drilled to a measured total depth of approximately 6,138 feet in 15 days. About the Western Margin Oil Trend: ACOR management is seeking for the Snatcher-1 well to prove that the Western Margin Oil Trend possibly lies under ACOR’s PEL 111 ORRI. A successful well on Snatcher-1, could possibly help discover a major new oil province that could possibly extend west to ACOR’s PEL 112. Recent drilling successes by Beach Petroleum, Cooper Energy and Victoria Petroleum on adjoining leases in the Cooper/Eromanga Basin in the Namur sandstone have operators theorizing that migration of oil past the Cooper/Eromanga Basin's Permian zero edge is highly possible.
