Sun River Secures Capital to Support Ongoing Drilling Operations in Colfax County

WHEAT RIDGE, CO--(Marketwire - January 30, 2008) - Sun River Energy, Inc. (OTCBB: SNRV) announces that it has negotiated a Commercial Loan for $200,000. These funds will be used to cover payables from operations related to the Company's drilling of three wells in Colfax County, New Mexico.

In addition to news of the working capital, Sun River has run a significant test on its Myers #1 coal bed methane well recently that resulted in pipeline quality production for 24 hours, concluding in water production. Sun River views the water production favorably because, in the Raton Basis, water customarily seals the gas into the coal. As the water is produced, overtime, more and more gas is often desorbed by the coal into production. Sun River is planning to Frac both the Myers #1 and Myers #2 wells in the near future.

Information on these other wells will be made available as soon as it becomes available. Interested investors are encouraged to call Sun River Energy's Investor Communications firm, Equiti-trend Advisors. Representatives are available to investors daily during and after market hours from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. eastern. See contact information below.
