Northern Minerals & Exploration (NMEX) Enters into Agreements to Acquire Interests in Two Texas Oil and Gas Leases

CISCO, TX--(Marketwired - Jul 8, 2014) - Northern Minerals & Exploration Ltd. (OTCQB: NMEX) (OTCBB: NMEX) ("Northern Minerals" or the "Company"),, is pleased to announce that it has taken its first step toward building oil & gas revenues from relatively conservative and lower risk joint ventures. The two joint venture acquisitions are located within management's niche area of operations in Central Texas where our team has over 30 years of experience in drilling, completing, acquiring and operating oil and gas wells. The following is a summary of these two projects:

Callahan County Shallow Oil Play: Northern has entered into an agreement to earn a 75% working interest in an oil and gas lease located in Callahan County, Texas. This lease has three existing fully equipped wells ready for placing into production. This lease also has one approved injection well plus eight (8) un-drilled potential locations. The acreage next to (directly adjoining) this lease has had 25 new wells drilled on it within the past three months. The principle target is the Cook/Hope sandstone formation at less than 500 feet, which is noted to have excellent porosity and permeability in the leased acreage.

Callahan/Eastland Mississippi Reef Play in a Multiple Pay Area: Northern has entered into an agreement to earn a 60% working interest in an oil & gas lease located near the Callahan and Eastland County line in Central Texas. This lease is situated in an area with several Mississippi Reef formation discoveries. One of these Mississippi Reef discovery wells in the immediate area has already produced over 128,000 barrels of oil and 140 MMCF of natural gas. Also, a number of notable historic Mississippi Reef discoveries have been located in the area using seismic surveys. Seismic surveys have been conducted on this leased acreage which the Company intends to utilize to identify possible drill targets. While the Mississippi Reef is the primary target, there are seven (7) other additional formations known to produce in the area of this acreage.
