VANCOUVER, B.C. January 16, 2014 - Hillcrest Resources Ltd. (the "Company" or Hillcrest") (TSX.V : HRH) is pleased to announce the Company has received confirmation the drilling rig contracted with Progress Drilling will be on site and ready to Spud the Donner #4 well during the week of January 19th. As previously announced Hillcrest Resources Ltd had submitted applications and received approval for two development well locations located within their Newton County leases in Texas. The Company selected these locations based upon review of seismic and well data as well as the production performance of the Company's two producing wells in the area. Hillcrest has a 60% working interest in the next 2 Donner wells.
Don Currie, CEO and Chairman, states "Hillcrest Resources is about to start a multi well program all designed to increase production, revenues and proven reserves within this calendar year. The Company has identified at least 5 potential drilling locations in our Newton County leases with potential production capabilities. Donner #4 will spud next week and be followed closely with the previously permitted Donner #3 well location. Our debt facility as well as the receipt of funds from the sale of 50% of our Montana assets has provided Hillcrest with the funds to methodically exploit our acreage as previously described.
We are excited about the potential production increase and the impact on our overall revenue upon the successful execution of this drilling campaign."
The Company will advise when the rig is onsite and drilling has commenced.
