Fair Sky Resources Inc. Announces December Operations, Appointment of Officers and Related Matters

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - Dec. 18, 2006) -


Fair Sky Resources Inc. ("Fair Sky") (TSX VENTURE:FSK) reports that the first well of the 2006-2007 winter drilling program in the Carbondale area has been cased and tested as a successful gas well with 6.5 meters of Ellerslie pay. The well (100% WI) was flow tested on a 7.94 mm choke at more than 1,500mcf/d at a pressure of 4900 kPa. Pipelining has commenced and the well is expected to be tied in and on production by the end of December 2006. A second well at Carbondale has been drilled and cased and will be tested before year end.

Fair Sky and its partner have also commenced construction of a pipeline to tie in the successful exploration well announced earlier at Boundary Lake. This well tested at a flow rate of 5,230 mcf/d. Production is expected to commence late in the first quarter of 2007. Fair Sky holds a 60% WI in this well, subject to a 12 % GORR.

On Fair Sky's Moose Jaw property consisting of more than 100 sections, Faire Sky has drilled and cased the first well of a 4 well program (100% WI) to be drilled before January 2007. A previous well had been drilled and cased on this play in March of 2006 and therefore two wells have now been drilled and cased on this second white specks natural gas play and are awaiting completion. Fair Sky is optimistic that both these wells will be successfully completed as natural gas producers based on positive log analysis and an increase in gas detection through the 2nd white specks zone. A completion program is expected to commence in early 2007 once the last three wells of this program have been drilled.

Fair Sky is also pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Kirk Wankel to the position of Chief Financial Officer and Brad Bates to the position of Manager Engineering. Mr. Wankel holds a Bachelor of Commerce degree from the University of Calgary and has experience as an auditor and he served as the Vice President Finance for a large international safety supply company. Mr. Bates holds a B.Sc. in chemical engineering from Lakehead University and has extensive experience in Production and Operation Engineering focused on sustained growth and property management with proficiency in production optimization and completions. In connection with the appointment of these officers, Fair Sky granted stock options to acquire up to 75,000 common shares of Fair Sky at an exercise price of $2.08 vesting in equal amounts on the first, second and third anniversaries of the grant and exercisable for up to 5 years.
