High North Resources-Corporate Update

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Feb. 5, 2014) -


High North Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:HN) (the "Company" or "High North") is very pleased to announce that it has begun receiving sales revenue from the Company's first two Montney horizontal wells. Wells 9-2-76-21W5M and 16-2-76-21W5M are flowing oil with combined preliminary rates exceeding a total of 350 barrels of oil per day over a seven day period. In addition, the solution gas is being flared after recovery of a nominal amount of condensate.

Rates have been restricted due to surface facility constraints. In addition, both wells are still in their clean-up period, with 30 to 60 percent of their frac water remaining to be recovered. Once surface facility constraints have been resolved and the remaining frac water has been recovered, specific flow rates for each well will be released.

The Company is proceeding to equip both wells with pumping equipment and additional tankage.

A third Montney horizontal well located at 9-26-75-21W5M also produced oil after completion, but is currently shut-in to conduct a pressure build-up survey as required by the Alberta Energy Regulator (AER). Production testing is slated to commence in the later part of February 2014.
