American Petro-Hunter Announces Drilling Permit Approved by K.C.C. for 
Mississippi-Osage Horizontal Oil Well in Rice County, Kansas 
WICHITA, KS -- (Marketwired) -- 12/19/13 --  American Petro-Hunter,
Inc. (OTCBB: AAPH) ("American Petro-Hunter" or the "Company") today
is pleased to announce that the Company has received approval and
drilling permit from the Kansas Corporation Commission for the
drilling of the Conner 28H # 1 ("Conner 1"). This is the Company's
first well planned in the development of its Kansas Mississippi-Osage
project, a 15,000 acre Mississippi Lime land package located in Rice
and Reno Counties, Kansas.  
The approved drilling permit was received by the Company's wholly
owned subsidiary and operator of the project, APH Operating Inc. The
Conner 1 well location is in Rice County, near Lyons, Kansas and is
planned to have a total vertical depth of 3,300 feet, with a lateral
through the Mississippi-Osage of 3,500 feet. Drilling is expected to
commence in Q1 2014.  
The Mississippian "Osage" play was kicked off in 2012 by the drilling
of the Unit Corp #1-21H Overall (section 21-25S-10W) which was
drilled to a total depth of 8,115' and was completed in June 2012.
Cumulative production for this well during the first five months has
been reported as 30,226 barrels of oil and 20,375 thousand cubic feet
(mcf) of natural gas, equating to daily rates of 201 barrels and 135
mcf. Since the completion of the test outlined above, there have been
30 horizontal locations filed for permits. Currently there are 12
producing horizontal wells, 11 undergoing drilling and completion,
and an additional 20 wells permitted in the area.  
American Petro-Hunter is targeting a potential of 200 barrels of oil
per day at initial production rates from its development wells for
planning purposes. If the acreage is fully developed on 640 acre
spacing, the play has the potential to allow drilling of a minimum of
23 wells.
