Changes in management

MONTREAL, May 26 /CNW Telbec/ - Junex (JNX : TSXV) announces a
re-structuring of its upper management and Board of Directors. Mr. Jacques
Aubert, who has been the Chief Executive Officer for the past seven years,
will be stepping down from his position on the 1st of June and will dedicate
his time thereafter to the position of Chairman of the Board of Directors. Mr.
Laurent Lemaire has been named the Chairman of the audit committee and Mr.
Jean-Yves Lavoie, who previously occupied the position of President and Chief
Operating Officer, will now act as President and Chief Executive Officer of
Junex. Mr. Dave Pépin, Vice-President, Corporate Affairs, has been named
secretary of the Board of Directors.

"We have dedicated a lot of energy in the last seven years to prove that
the Quebec sub-soil can host petroleum and natural gas. I believe that we can
be proud of the results achieved to date and of the network of partnerships
that have been developed for the purpose of supporting Junex. The success of
the next phase of growth of the company rests today on a team of devoted,
dynamic and competent individuals, who are and have been an integral part of
Junex for the last couple of years. As Chairman of the Board of Directors, I
aspire to draw more attention to the company and to solicit as many people as
possible to join us, so that Junex can continue to contribute significantly to
the development of a Quebec petroleum industry," commented M. Aubert.
