VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Nov. 21, 2013) - Clear Mountain Resources Corp. ("Clear Mountain" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:CY) is pleased to announce that Cawley, Gillespie & Associates ("Cawley Gillespie"), a Texas based independent qualified reserves evaluator, has performed National Instrument 51-101 compliant reserve calculations dated November 18, 2013 and prepared as of October 1, 2013 (the "Estimates") estimating reserves and future net revenue for the assets ("Assets") outlined in a binding letter of intent ("LOI") between Clear Mountain and Performance Energy Resources LLC (PERL) involving approximately 75,710 gross acres of leased lands in Osage county, Oklahoma, of which approximately 87% is held by production.
