Montello Files NI 51-101 and Divests Itself of Non-Core Assets in Tennessee

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Nov. 29, 2007) - MONTELLO RESOURCES LTD. ("Montello") (TSX VENTURE:MEO) announces that the Company has quit claim its interests in 52 shallow gas wells to Austin Developments Corp. in various counties in Northern Tennessee. Austin has now become the operator of these wells, allowing Montello to focus its financial resources and expertise exclusively on potentially high-impact deep drilling operations in Morgan County.

Montello previously owned a 50% interest in these 52 shut-in wells. The Tennessee leases, covering approximately 1,900 acres, are situated in a part of the state where the majority of wells were drilled in the late 1970s - early 1980s. They were shut-in due to low commodity prices at that time. A key feature of Montello's growth strategy via the drill bit, is to seek farm-in opportunities as a non-operator in shallow plays, re-completions, etc. back home in Alberta. Future potential revenues would be directed south for the benefit of US operations.

In return for the transfer of the shallow well assets, Montello benefitted from advantageous initial farm-in terms which also included cancellation of 3rd party royalties. Terms for a mutually beneficial rolling multi-well farm-in agreement are also being discussed.

Furthermore, Montello is pleased to announce that in accordance with National Instrument 51-101 "Standards of Disclosure for Oil and Gas Activities of the Canadian Securities Administrators", the Company has filed its reserves data and other oil and gas information (51-101F1, F2 and F3) for the year ended July 31, 2007.
