CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Feb. 8, 2011) - Mart Resources, Inc. (TSX VENTURE:MMT) ("Mart" or the "Company") and its co-venturers, Midwestern Oil and Gas Company Plc. (Operator of the Umusadege field) and Suntrust Oil Ltd., are pleased to announce that drilling activities have commenced at the UMU-7 well.

The UMU-7 well commenced drilling operations on February 7th, 2011and is currently drilling ahead at 1300 feet. It is anticipated that the UMU-7 well will be completed as a dual tubing string configuration allowing for the potential of multiple zones to be produced from the same well bore. The UMU-7 well's primary objectives are the previously identified VIII sand and the new X11c, XIV and XV sands that were discovered by UMU-6 well in December 2010.

The UMU-7 well is being drilled from the same three-slot drilling pad as the recently drilled and completed UMU-6 well. It is estimated that the drilling phase will take 40 to 50 days. The third slot on the pad will be used to drill the UMU-8 well.
