Poplar Creek Resources Inc. ("Poplar" or the "Corporation"), (TSX VENTURE:PCK), announces that it has entered into an agreement with a Calgary, Alberta based exploration and production company whereby Poplar will develop a contiguous 100% interest six section block of petroleum and natural gas rights located in the general Radway area of north central Alberta. In accordance with the terms of the agreement, Poplar will shoot up to 10 miles of seismic and drill a well, subject to the results of the seismic, to earn a 50% interest in the lands and two existing natural gas wells located on the lands.

PCK continues with its participation in the previously announced Sparky Heavy Oil Program located at Warspite, Alberta and further news with respect to this project will be released in conjunction with the operator.
