DeeThree Updates Lethbridge Operations

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Oct. 9, 2009) –


DEETHREE EXPLORATION INC. ("DeeThree") (TSX VENTURE:DTX) is pleased to provide an update to its recent operations in the Lethbridge area.

As announced on September 22, 2009, the second well drilled in the third quarter of 2009 (100% working interest) was an exploratory well targeting deeper horizons. The well successfully encountered hydrocarbons in the target formation and was initially believed to be a new oil pool discovery. Upon completion of a recent hydraulic fracture stimulation, it is apparent that the pay zone is instead saturated with natural gas and has relatively high deliverability. During cleanup flow operations, the well produced at rates of approximately 1,000 Mcf/d for a period of 24 hours.

Martin Cheyne, DeeThree's President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "Although somewhat unanticipated, these are positive results for DeeThree. Three of our first seven wells have encountered gas pools that are capable of high deliverability, which is a great indication of the exploration and production potential in the Lethbridge area. Furthermore, our proposed 18km pipeline extension is planned to pass directly by this latest discovery, which will minimize costs to tie this production into our 100% owned infrastructure."

Fieldwork on DeeThree's 36 square mile 3D seismic program is well underway, and the program is anticipated to be complete by mid-November. Additionally, the Company expects to commence a three well drilling program prior to the end of October in order to evaluate three new prospects.

This news release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any securities in any jurisdiction.

BOE Presentation

References herein to "boe" mean barrels of oil equivalent derived by converting gas to oil in the ratio of six thousand cubic feet (Mcf) of gas to one barrel (bbl) of oil. Boes may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A boe conversion ratio of 6 Mcf: 1 bbl is based on an energy conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead.
