Seismic Program in Full Swing

BELLINGHAM, WA--(Marketwire - August 13, 2007) - Avalon Energy Corporation (OTCBB: AVLN) advises on the ongoing work being conducted on its 13,189 acre Shotgun Draw Oil and Gas lease in the Uinta Basin in Utah. The Shotgun Draw lease straddles the western margins of the Uinta Basin within the foothills of the Wasatch Mountains and is largely contained in the Ashley National Forest.

Preparations for the Vibrator Seismic Shoot continue on schedule with the surveying work having been completed last week. The vibrator seismic line will be shot under the direction of Veritas DGC Land Inc of Denver covering eight miles along the forest road. The line travels in an east west direction over the southwestern edge of the property and after cutting the north-west regional fault, swings north-north-east along Twelve Hundred Dollar Ridge spanning the property in that direction and crossing two of the three well locations. This ridge is sub-parallel to the north-south regional fault which also represents possible stratigraphic closure for shallower target horizons.

The permitting work for the three well sites is now well advanced with site plats completed and critical decisions being finalized as to pad locations and disturbance levels. The planning for upgrading the access road and drilling a water supply well is at an advanced stage.

The Environmental Assessment is well underway and a first draft has been delivered to the Ashley National Forest. Field work on wildlife populations has been conducted throughout the spring and early summer. Necessary archaeological work was completed last year on both the seismic lines and the three well sites. The EA process is under the direct management and supervision of the Ashley National Forest.
