Grey Wolf Sells Certain Caroline Assets for $32.9 Million

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - Aug. 25, 2006) - Grey Wolf Exploration Inc. ("Grey Wolf") (TSX:GWE) is pleased to announce that it has signed a Purchase and Sale Agreement with PrimeWest Energy Inc. ("PrimeWest") pursuant to the terms of the Caroline Farmout Agreement.

On August 24, 2006, Grey Wolf entered into a definitive agreement to sell to PrimeWest certain assets in the Caroline area of west central Alberta for proceeds of $32.9 million subject to customary adjustments. Based on an updated April 30, 2006 reserves evaluation by DeGoyler and McNaughton, this divestiture represents approximately 15% of the proved plus probable corporate reserves by volume and approximately 550 barrels of oil equivalent per day ("boe/d") of current production. The effective date of the transaction is April 1, 2006 and closing is scheduled for today, August 25, 2006. Proceeds from the sale of these assets will be applied to reduce outstanding indebtedness and to fund a portion of the Company's capital expenditure program.

"This transaction provides us with the financial capability and flexibility to expedite development within our four core operating areas" stated Bob Watson, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

(x)Note: A barrel of oil equivalent (boe) is derived by converting natural gas to oil in the ratio of six thousand cubic feet of natural gas to one barrel of oil equivalent. A boe conversion may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation, as it is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and may not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead.

Grey Wolf is an independent Alberta-based, junior oil and natural gas company involved in the development and production of natural gas and crude oil in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin. Its common shares trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol "GWE".
