Black Dragon Begins Drilling in Desoto Parish, Louisiana

/ Source: GlobeNewswire

OIL CITY, La., Dec. 29, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Black Dragon Resource Companies, Inc. ("the Company," "Dragon") (Pink Sheets:BDGR) is pleased to announce that the company will drill its first joint venture well with Black Dragon Resource Ltd. (Frankfurt:8BD) and an additional party. Black Dragon Resource Companies Inc. will have a 35% working interest in the well. To date the well has the surface casing drilled and cemented. The well is located in Desoto Parish, LA.

According to Tom Neely, President," This field is known to be very prolific for the recovery of oil and gas. We plan on beginning to drill immediately. We expect this to be the first of many strategic partnerships between Black Dragon Resource Companies Inc. and Black Dragon Resource Ltd."

Black Dragon is an oil and gas exploration and production company currently focused on the acquisition of mature, producing and existing domestic oil and gas fields. This focus has eliminated exploration risk, reduced costs of completion, and provided rapid generation of income in a niche market where larger independent and major oil companies are not positioned to compete. Black Dragon intends to re-complete additional shallow producing wells and to expand its focus to include drilling of new wells, some to deeper levels and to purchase additional leases.
