pleased to announce that it plans to spud its first Success Formation
well at its new oil exploration project located in the Mantario area
of West Central Saskatchewan (the "Mantario Project") in the fourth
quarter of 2013.  
The Mantario Project, consists of 1,440 gross acres (net 1,008 acres)
of P&NG rights located approximately 21 kilometers southeast of Rock
Energy Inc.'s Mantario oil project. Blackbird's farm-out partner on
the Mantario Project, Pennant Energy Inc., may earn a 30% working
interest by payment of 50% of the drilling, completing, equipping and
tie-in costs of the test well. At this time, the well is scheduled to
spud from a surface location at 15d-6-26-24W3 with a total depth of
1,000 meters.  
Garth Braun, President and CEO of Blackbird stated, "The Mantario
Project has been developed by the Blackbird team and is the
culmination of an extensive due diligence process including the
shooting of 960 acres of 3D, the processing of 2D and 3D seismic data
and the assembling of a core land position. The Mantario Project has
strong analogue support to Rock Energy's Mantario oil discovery that
currently has 31 wells in production. The Blackbird team will be
looking to aggressively explore and develop this oil project."
