Mountainview is also pleased to provide an operational update on the Company's 12 Gage Project in the Williston basin.  The Company has now successfully completed its winter drilling program and has placed all three wells on production.

The Wigness 5-8-1H well, the first horizontal Three Forks well in the winter drilling program, has produced for 94 days.  The Wigness well averaged productive capacity of 221 boe/d (92% oil) over the last 7 days of production and 217 boe/d (93% oil) over the last 30 days of production, respectively.

The Leininger 3-10-1H well, the second horizontal Three Forks well in the winter drilling program, has produced for 75 days. The Leininger well averaged productive capacity of 242 boe/d (93% oil) over the last 7 days of production and 248 boe/d (93% oil) over the last 30 days of production, respectively.

The Olson 35-26-1H well, the third horizontal Three Forks well in the winter drilling program, has produced for 47 days.  The Olson well averaged productive capacity of 256 boe/d (93% oil) over the last 7 days of production and 274 boe/d (85% oil) over the last 30 days of production, respectively.

References to productive capacity relate to the fact that the Company is successfully marketing the above-referenced oil production and is actively looking for opportunities to market the above-referenced gas production.

Through its wholly-owned subsidiary Mountain Divide, LLC ("Mountain Divide"), Mountainview holds: (a) a 93.75% working interest in the Wigness Well, 25% of which is subject to reversion to another working interest owner following payout of 100% of the cost of their proportionate working interest costs in the well plus a 200% penalty; (b) an 87.51% working interest in the Leininger Well, 3.12% of which is subject to reversion to another working interest owner following payout of 100% of the cost of their proportionate working interest costs in the well plus a 200% penalty; and (c) a 62.27% working interest in the Olson Well, 16.37% of which is subject to reversion to another working interest owner following payout of 100% of the cost of their proportionate working interest costs in the well plus a 200% penalty. Pursuant to Mountain Divide's credit facility, all of Mountain Divide's oil and gas properties located in Divide County, North Dakota (including the lands on which the Wigness well, the Leininger well and the Olson well are situated) are subject to a 39% after pay-out net profits interest held by Mountain Divide's lender under the credit facility.  These payments shall not commence until repayment in full of the outstanding amounts owed under the credit facility and will automatically reduce to 20% once the lender achieves a 1.65 x return on investment.
