Blackhawk Resource Corp. Successfully Tests Sparky Horizontal Well

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - April 15, 2010) - Blackhawk Resource Corp. ("Blackhawk" or the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:BLR) is pleased to announce that it has successfully completed the 100 % owned BLR Bodo #2 horizontal well in the Provost area of Alberta. This Sparky Formation horizontal well flowed at an average rate of 150 barrels of oil per day over a two day test period with minimal fluid level drawdown in the wellbore. Oil cuts of up to 90% were observed during the testing.

The Corporation released the drilling rig on April 1, 2010 after achieving a horizontal length of 689 metres in the Sparky Formation in the BLR Bodo #2 horizontal well. Completion operations commenced on April 9, 2010 and ten fracture stimulations were performed along the horizontal length of the well. 

The well is currently being equipped for production and is expected to be on-stream by the end of April 2010. The downhole pump being installed will be capable of producing at higher gross fluid rates than could be achieved during testing with swabbing equipment.

Using 3D seismic data, Blackhawk has identified three additional horizontal Sparky locations on Corporation owned land that will be drilled to further develop the pool. The Corporation expects the drilling of these follow up locations will begin in the second quarter.

Trading in the securities of the Corporation should be considered highly speculative.
