Long View Resources Corporation Commences Drilling Operations on Exploration Well at Gainsborough

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 27, 2006) - LONG VIEW RESOURCES CORPORATION (TSX VENTURE:LRC) ("Long View", the "Company" or the "Corporation"), is pleased to announce that drilling operations have commenced on a vertical exploration well at its Gainsborough property.

The well is being drilled to evaluate deeper horizons identified from seismic, as well as secondary targets in the shallow Mississippian. It is anticipated that drilling operations will be complete within one week. Evaluation of multiple formations will occur during the drilling process, and depending upon drilling results, the well may be completed and production tested in these zones using a service rig after release of the drilling rig.

Long View has a 100 percent working interest in the deeper horizons subject to Crown, freehold and overriding royalty encumbrances, and an 80 percent working interest to the base of the Frobisher-Alida, prior to payout of the well.

Once the evaluation stage is completed, it is anticipated that production could be established within two weeks of completion of the well in a productive zone.
