Montello Farms-In on Two Gas Exploration Wells

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Dec. 4, 2007) - Montello Resources Ltd. ("Montello") (TSX VENTURE:MEO) is pleased to announce that the Company is farming in on two low-risk gas exploration wells in the Grouard region of Alberta, approximately 550 km northwest of the city of Edmonton.

Drilling has already commenced on the first of these two drill holes to the Debolt formation at an estimated total depth of 850 metres. These two gas wells represent multi-zone targets. Drilling is expected to be completed on both wells as early as December 7, 2007. Montello's estimated costs per well are approximately $155,000.

Pursuant to the farm-in agreement that Montelllo entered into with Northern Sun Exploration Company Inc. in late November, 2007, the Company is earning a 35% working interest subject to minor overrides in each well in return for paying 50% of the drilling costs.

Northern Sun Exploration is the operator of these wells and already operates production in the area. In the event of a successful outcome, it is anticipated that gas production will be tied-in to a nearby pipeline. Further to the farm-in agreement with Northern Sun, Montello also has the right to participate in other contingent offset wells in the area.

Pursuit of lower risk drilling opportunities for gas and condensates in Alberta are in line with the Company's business plan to generate revenues in the short term to assist with financing of high impact drilling in Tennessee. The Company is contemplating additional flow through eligible opportunities before year end as this fulfills its 2006 flow-through obligations.
