"Archer-Wildlands" #1 Well Drills Gas Filled Winters Sand Objective at North Franklin, Sacramento Basin California

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- July 18, 2005 -- Silver Star Energy, Inc. (OTC BB: SVSE) today is pleased to announce that the "Archer-Wildlands #1" gas well at the Company's North Franklin Project reached a total depth of 7,736 feet on June 15. The Winters sand pay had excellent gas shows in the mud log and the suite of Resistivity and Sonic electronic logs showed clean sand pay with 100% gas fill-up within the pay zone. The intersected sand pay exceeds in thickness what is producing at the "Archer-Whitney" well. A casing election was immediately made and the Company is pleased to report that the well is now cased to depth with production casing.

The Company and partners are now preparing to complete the well and the operator is developing a perforation plan to be implemented during the well completion phase. Notably, the gas gathering line and tie-in to pipeline are already in-place at the Wildlands location. All that will be required is to install a gas-flow meter following the perforation and completion program. The well can be tied-in to the pipeline with no delays, such as occurred with the initial pipeline construction.

The operator has called for a completion rig and Silver Star will report on timing when the rig becomes available. It is estimated that the completion phase of the well will occur over the next 2 weeks.

Robert McIntosh, President of Silver Star, states that, "This is the second successful gas well drilled at North Franklin and will be our second gas producer. We plan on moving to tie-in the well to the existing gathering system and pipeline quickly which should potentially, at a minimum, double our gas production revenue from the reservoir. Silver Star is very excited with our continued success at North Franklin, which is increasing shareholder value in the Company. Silver Star is continuing to implement our 2005 project development plan with this new well at North Franklin."

Gas prices in the Sacramento Basin continue to rise with the NYMEX futures. On Friday, the PGE-Citygate gas pricing from North Franklin production was $7.18 per Mcf.


The Company is committed to the exploration and extensive development of oil and natural gas reserves throughout western North America. Company management is focused on an acquisition program targeting high-quality, low-risk prospects provided via key strategic alliance partnerships.
