ONGOING OPERATIONS AND INTENDED SALE OF OIL & GAS ASSETS

The 99% owned Woodrush multi well production facility, owned by a wholly-owned subsidiary, has been formally shut in. The asset is to be sold. The Kokopelli multi-well gas production property (15% WI) in Colorado is also to be sold. Sufficient funding to continue the conversion of the Woodrush production facility to a methanol plant in NE BC simply did not materialize despite the efforts of the Company's senior management and its financial advisors. The Calgary office will be closed immediately. All funds received from the sale of assets will be applied to satisfy prioritized payables, and fund, as possible, the costs required to maintain corporate affairs and the search for a new business.

The Directors are applying their best efforts to secure a new path of opportunity for the Company's stakeholders. This may take several months given current global issues, the pursuit of new business, capital reorganization (e.g. prudent consolidation, mandatory secured and prioritized share for debt settlement) and new financing.

The Company is responding proactively to the TSX listing policies (and the US OTTC exchange) and intends to apply for listing on a junior exchange, yet to be determined, subject to satisfying that exchange's listing policies.
