Northern Minerals & Exploration Ltd. Acquires Oil and Gas Lease in Coleman County, Texas

CISCO, TX--(Marketwired - Oct 15, 2014) - Northern Minerals & Exploration Ltd. (OTCQB: NMEX) ("Northern") is pleased to announce that it has acquired up to a 75% Working Interest ("WI"), subject to a 25% royalty, in a 206.5 acre lease located in the northern part of Coleman County, Texas, with four existing shut in wells on the lease. Three of the four wells are fully equipped with downhole pumps, rods, tubing, pump jacks, and well head and surface equipment including production tanks, meter connections and gas gathering pipelines. 

Under the terms of the agreement Northern can earn a 75% WI before payout (67.5% after payout), subject to a 25% royalty, in the wells and lease by the payment of cash and shares, and reworking/recompleting the three wells to bring them back into production. For further information on Northern, please see the Company's filings at www.sec.gov 

The 206.5 acre lease is located in a prolific multiple pay area originally discovered by ARCO in the early 1980s. The lease area has six known historic productive formations: Ellenburger (4,200'), Gray (3,850'), Gardner (3,700'), Jennings (3,600'), Upper Capps (3,450'), and Morris (3,400').

One of the wells on this lease is a direct offset to a well on an adjoining lease that has produced more than 65,000 barrels and 160 million cubic feet of gas also from the Gray Sand formation. This offset well after 28 years of production is still producing an average of 6 barrels and 28 thousand cubic feet of gas per day.

Northern's near term strategic plan is to re-work two of the wells to place them back into production and attempt a re-completion on the third well in the Gray Sand. Each of the three wells also has the potential for additional re-completions in other formations. The lease also has the potential for drilling of new additional wells. 

This acquisition complements the previous two acquisitions announced in July, 2014, as they are all located within management's niche area of operations in central Texas where the Northern team has over 30 years of experience in acquisition, drilling, completion, and operating oil and gas wells.
