Simba Energy identifies three significant oil seeps in Guinea

Thursday, Feb 28, 2013

Simba Energy Inc. ("Simba" or the "Company") (TSXV: SMB, OTCQX: SMBZF, Frankfurt: GDA), the pan-African oil & gas explorer, is pleased to report it has identified three additional and significant seeps during its initial phase of 2013 exploration work on Blocks 1 & 2 in the Republic of Guinea’s Bove Basin.

“Further to our site visit last summer that identified and confirmed a number of known seep areas within Block 2, these three additional seep areas (two in Block 1), from Paleozoic rocks, are impressive and clearly the best seeps seen to date. They certainly increase the prospectivity of both the blocks with the presence of higher C hydrocarbons. A number of samples have been sent to the lab for analysis.” remarked James W. Dick, Director and CTO for Simba.

In view of the results to date, the Company now plans to focus its initial exploration work in the Republic of Guinea on Block 1 and the northern part of block 2.

The Company is planning a geochemical survey to collect 2,000 samples covering 1,000 line kilometers mostly within Block 1 to focus upcoming phases of exploration. Crews will be mobilized within the next month with completion anticipated shortly thereafter.
