Crown Point Comments on Argentina Regulatory Changes for Exporters of Hydrocarbons

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Oct. 27, 2011) - Crown Point Ventures Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:CWV) and its wholly owned subsidiary, Crown Point Oil & Gas S.A. ("the Company"), is providing its comments on yesterday's announced changes in Argentina requiring oil, gas and mining exporters to repatriate all of their export revenue. Crown Point's view is that the new regulations are intended to bring export revenue back into the banking system, build reserves and allow greater control over foreign exchange rates. These changes are not expected to have a significant impact on Crown Point as the Company does not have existing arrangements or plans to export production. Crown Point's plan for the foreseeable future is to continue to re-invest all cash flow from operations back into the country. Further, it does not expect the changes to impact Crown Point Oil & Gas S.A.'s ability to make dividend payments from after tax earnings.
