DENVER, CO--(Marketwire - June 24, 2008) - New Frontier Energy, Inc. (OTCBB: NFEI), a natural resource company engaged in the exploration, acquisition and development of oil and gas properties in the United States, announced today that gross production at the Slater Dome CBM Field increased 61% to 43.4 million cubic feet for May of 2008, compared to 26.9 million cubic feet produced in the May 2007 period.

New Frontier Energy holds a 66% working interest in the Slater Dome CBM Field.

Revenue based on NFEI's working interest for the month of May 2008 was $108,185, representing a 97% increase compared with $55,016 received during the same period in 2007. The Company received an average price of $8.76 per MCF during May 2008, compared to $7.18 per MCF received during the May 2007 period, a 22% increase.

"We achieved record levels of production and cash flow during May," said Paul Laird, President of New Frontier Energy, Inc. "The ongoing dewatering of the Slater Dome CBM Field is improving our average production per well. This synergy is quite common in CBM production, and will accelerate our ability to attain positive cash flow."

The production profile of a typical CBM well will normally rise during the initial four to seven years before leveling off, and producing on a slow decline curve for a 20 - 25 year period.
