Admiral Bay Reports Record Production and Revenue for the 3rd Quarter of 2008

- LOE and G&A reductions give first positive EBITDA for Company

CENTENNIAL, COLORADO--(Marketwire - July 1, 2008) - Admiral Bay Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ADB) ("Admiral Bay" or the "Company") is pleased to report record production and revenue for the third quarter ended April 30, 2008. Record revenue and lower production costs and G&A expense gave the Company its first ever quarterly positive EBITDA (Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization). Revenues (after royalties) were $1,517,949, an increase of 47% from the prior period and 50% sequentially driven by increases in production of 23% and 18% respectively and higher commodity prices. Production (before royalty) averaged 2,535 mcfgpd compared to 2,085 mcfgpd in the prior period and 2,098 mcfgpd sequentially. Production costs were $663,580 ($2.68/mcf), a decrease of 18% from the prior period and 29% sequentially and G&A expense was $406,150 ($1.78/mcf), a decrease of 19% from the prior period and 22% sequentially. EBITDA for the quarter was $448,219 compared to ($441,106) in the prior period and ($437,307) sequentially. Earnings for the quarter were ($2,502,134) versus ($1,414,291) in the prior period due primarily to the non-cash change in the mark-to-market of the Company's natural gas hedges as well as higher amortization and interest costs.

President and CEO Steven Tedesco commented "The record third quarter results and the turnaround in EBITDA highlight the progress we are making this year in increasing production while decreasing production costs and G&A expense. It also shows the viability of our Kansas CBM projects. We are continuing to increase production while keeping costs contained to take advantage of the current commodity price environment and aggressively grow the Company."
