("Blackdog" or "the Company")(TSX VENTURE:DOG) is pleased to announce the results of the Company's year-end reserves evaluation, with an effective date of December 31, 2009, that was prepared by Trimble Engineering Associates Ltd. in accordance with the standards contained in the Canadian Oil and Gas Evaluation Handbook and in accordance with the requirements set out by the Canadian Securities Administrators in National Instrument 51-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Oil and Gas Activities ("NI-51-101").

Blackdog will be issuing its audited year-end financial statements on April 30, 2010 and complete copies of the reports required by NI 51-101, along with the audited financials, will be available at on that date.

The term "BOE" may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. In accordance with NI 51-101, a BOE conversion ratio for natural gas of 6 mscf: 1 bbl has been used which is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead.
