CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - June 22, 2009) - International Frontier Resources Corporation (TSX VENTURE:IFR) announces that operator Nippon Oil Exploration and Production U.K. Limited commenced drilling operations on the 15/24a-J Bowmore - Alpha appraisal well located in the UK Central North Sea with the Ocean Guardian semi-submersible rig on 21 June 2009. IFR's wholly owned U.K. subsidiary, Britcana Energy Ltd. holds a ten per cent interest in License P1465 covering blocks 15/24a, 15/23c, 15/28a and 15/29e. Britcana is currently negotiating a joint venture financing agreement with a large U.K. based company that if concluded will result in Britcana holding a five per cent interest in License P 1465.

The 15/24a-J well is located between the 15/24a-4 discovery well and the recently appraised Bugle accumulation to the west on contiguous block 15/23d. The well is targeting Upper Jurassic sandstones which flowed hydrocarbons at the 15/24a-4 discovery well and at the Bugle accumulation.
