Probe Announces Gas Discovery at East Cameron 246

THE WOODLANDS, TEXAS--(Marketwire - Oct. 30, 2008) - Probe Resources Ltd. (the "Company" or "Probe") (TSX VENTURE:PBR) is pleased to announce that it has discovered commercial gas reserves in its East Cameron 246 No. 2 well located in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico. The well is currently being drilled and has reached a measured depth of 9,346 feet and a true vertical depth of 6,694 feet as of 6:00am CDT today. The Company encountered its primary objective in the Lentic formation logging approximately 45 feet of net pay. It is anticipated that the planned total depth of the well will be reached early next week. The expected gross production rate from this formation is 10 - 15 MMcfd. Probe holds a 100% working interest ("WI") and a 70% net revenue interest ("NRI") in the well.

Upon completion of the drilling activities, production casing will be run and the well will be suspended awaiting production facilities. Production from the field is expected to commence late in the first quarter of 2009. Further drilling in the field is planned during 2009.

Along with this discovery, the Company is currently executing the development plan on its previously announced discovery at the East Cameron 36 No. 1 well. The expected gross production rate for this well is 5 - 10 MMcfd. Probe holds a 100% WI and a 69.5% NRI in the well. Production is expected to commence in the first quarter of 2009.

Scott Broussard, Chairman and CEO of Probe, commented; "We are encouraged by the recent success in our initial drilling program, and we anticipate a continuation of gas discoveries consistent with our expectations."

The Company also announces that the drilling rig under contract to drill the South Timbalier 214 well is expected to move on to location in mid November, 2008. The rig has experienced significant delays in its completion of work for another operator due in large part to Hurricane Ike. Probe holds a 100% WI and a 70% NRI in the well.

Additionally, due to extensive damage to onshore facilities, the Company's High Island 115 B-1 sidetrack No. 2 well has not returned to production since Hurricane Ike. Repairs to the facilities are ongoing and should be completed by mid November. Probe holds a 41.5% WI and a 30.9% NRI in the well.

Details of the current drilling program are more fully described in the Company's National Instrument 51-101 report filed June 5, 2008 and available for review at and on the Company's website.
