Corridor Reports Initial McCully K-66 Test Results

HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA--(CCNMatthews - Aug. 15, 2006) - Corridor Resources Inc. (TSX:CDH) announced today that well stimulation (fraccing), initial testing and well clean-up operations have been completed at the McCully K-66 well in the McCully natural gas field located near Sussex, New Brunswick. K-66 is the second well to be stimulated in the current frac program (following the reporting of initial results for M-66 last week). The K-66 well flowed gas from the "A" sand at a measured rate of 6.40 million standard cubic feet per day (mmscf/d) and a flowing wellhead pressure of 1748 pounds per square inch (psi) at the end of a 77 hour flow period. The well was flowed through a 10.3 millimeter choke and was still cleaning up after recovering less than 20% of injected completion fluids during the test period. The flow rates reported are for only the initial clean-up period immediately following fraccing operations. Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan and Corridor are joint participants in the K-66 well.

Fraccing and testing operations are planned to be conducted on a total of seven wells during August and September, and Corridor intends to continue to provide updates on the results of these activities as they proceed. Corridor considers the initial three wells (M-66, K-66 and J-66) to be the most productive of the seven wells to be stimulated and tested this summer, based on log evaluations and sidewall core analyses. Further flow testing of all seven wells (including M-66 and K-66) will be carried out prior to mid October to establish more definitive results.
