Outlook For 2008

The Company intends to drill, in the second and third quarters, locations in the Antler/Sinclair area of Saskatchewan and Manitoba. Madison's partners have licensed one well and are preparing to license another. The wells in the area produce from the Bakken/Torquay Formation and produce 44o API light oil. Madison's working interest is 20-55% in the various lands. There are several prospective drilling locations on Company lands.

The Company will continue to improve operating costs by purchasing equipment currently being leased in the Garrington Area. The Company intends to spend $100,000 (net) to purchase the equipment and reduce monthly costs by approximately $4,000(net).

Madison continues to purchase shares under the Normal Course Issuer Bid announced in November 2007. Madison is under the opinion that the current share price does not reflect fair value and therefore will continue buying shares and cancelling them when prudent. Since December 31, 2007 the Company has repurchased 416,000 common shares at an average price of $0.143 per share. Since October 23, 2006 the Company has repurchased a total of 1,023,500 shares for cancellation.
