    Drilling Status Report – 1 November 2006
    • Paradox Basin #1 well is at 13,014 feet (3,967 m)
    • Currently running wireline log survey
    • Drilling expected to recommence 9 am WST tomorrow
    Golden State Resources is pleased to announce progress on the Paradox Basin #1 well in
    Grand County, Utah.
    Paradox Basin #1 is at 13,014 feet (3,967 m), in the Alkali Gulch Member of the
    Pennsylvanian Paradox Formation (see table and graphic below). The Alkali Gulch Member
    comprises a cyclic sequence of sandstone, dolomite, black shale, salt and anhydrite.
    A geophysical wireline logging survey was commenced early this morning. The survey will
    more adequately test the character of previously announced gas shows and define zones to
    be perforated and production tested at the completion of the well. It will also allow better
    correlation between seismic data and the geology exposed by this well, and aid in the siting
    of the next well on the prospect.
    The well is approximately 330 feet above the primary objective of the well, the Leadville
    Limestone Formation (estimated depth: 13,350 feet).
    It is anticipated that the well will reach the top of the Leadville Limestone within 2 days of
    recommencement of drilling, which is expected to occur at 9 am WST tomorrow.
