A correction from source is issued with respect to the news release published at 20:57 ET, on November 1, 2007. "Gross Marketable Gas of 13.757 BCF and 10.41 BCF..." has been changed to read: "Gross Probable Developed Non-producing Marketable Gas reserves of 13.757 BCF and Probable Undeveloped Marketable Gas reserves of 10.41 BCF..." and where the term "Test Well" was used "Test" has been removed. The complete and corrected release follows:

Montello Resources Ltd. ("Montello") announces that it has entered into an agreement to purchase an undivided 6% working interest from the base of the Mannville Formation to basement underlying Sections 12, 13, 14 and 23 in Twp. 23 Rge. 4 W5M (2,560 acres), hereinafter referred to as "the Sale Lands". The Sale Lands are located on the T'suu Tina Reserve which is located approximately 15 miles west of Calgary Alberta. Included in the acquisition of the Sale Lands is a 6% interest in the suspended 10,957 foot 12-13-23-4 W5M cased potential Rundle Gas Well ("12-13 Well"). The mineral rights underlying the Sale Lands and the 12-13 Well are hereinafter collectively referred to as the "Said Interests".

After conducting a detailed analysis of the 12-13 Well logs as well as logs from other wells in the area Chapman Petroleum Engineering Ltd. ("Chapman"), an independent petroleum engineering firm, prepared a Reserve and Economic Evaluation Report dated as of January 1, 2007 and assigned 190.3 feet of net pay to the 12-13 Well and 144 feet of net pay to the 7-23-23-04 W5M location ("7-23 Well Location") which is included in the Sale Lands. Chapman assigned gross Probable Developed Non-producing Marketable Gas reserves of 13.757 BCF and Probable Undeveloped Marketable Gas reserves of 10.41 BCF attributable to the 12-13 Well and the 7-23 Well Location respectively. Montello participated in the drilling and completion of the 12-13 Well by paying 5% of the costs to earn an undivided 2.5% working interest in the Sale Lands and 12-13 Well. The operator, Arapahoe Energy Corporation is preparing to re-complete the 12-13 Well.

Montello has agreed to purchase the Said Interests from Vanguard Exploration Corp. based on the 10% discount factor value attributed to the Probable Developed Non-Producing gas reserves in the 12-13 Well and the 15% discount factor value attributed to the Probable Undeveloped gas reserves of the 7-23 Well Location as assigned by Chapman pursuant to their Reserve and Economic Evaluation Report, dated as of January 1, 2007 and updated as of November 1, 2007. The entire purchase price for the Said Interests of $3,499,000 will be paid in full by Montello issuing to Vanguard 11,663,333 common shares, valued at $0.30 per share, from treasury, which will be subject to a 4 month hold period. This transaction is subject to approval by the applicable regulatory authorities.

Montello's President and CEO, Bill Cawker stated, "This acquisition is beneficial to Montello in that it provides us with a net 8.5% interest versus our existing 2.5% interest in the upcoming recompletion of the 12-13 Well as well as in the follow-up 7-23 Well Location that Montello has the right to participate in on a straight up basis as to an undivided 8.5% working interest. We are pleased that we were able to negotiate the acquisition of the Said Interests from Vanguard for no cash consideration and the issuance of common shares at a 38% premium to the last 10 days average closing price of our stock."
