American Eagle Energy Acquires Additional Spyglass And West Spyglass Acreage

LITTLETON, Colo., Oct. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- American Eagle Energy Corporation (OTCQX: AMZG; "American Eagle" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Company and its JV partner have closed on a strategic acreage acquisition in and around the Company's Spyglass and West Spyglass Properties in Divide County, North Dakota. 

The Company and its JV partner jointly purchased a total of 3,472 net acres from a private operator in the area for cash consideration of approximately $7.1 million.  Key to the acquisition is that over 30% of the acquired acreage lies within proved and producing spacing units located within the Spyglass Property.  Based upon the reserves update that the Company announced on September 27, 2012, the acquired acreage is expected to increase the PV-10 value of the Company's proved and probable reserves by approximately $14 million.  The remaining acreage that was acquired will enable American Eagle to strengthen and consolidate its position as operator of at least four other spacing units in the area.  American Eagle's share of the total acquisition included 1,129 net acres at an approximate cost to the Company of $2.4 million.  

"Our ability to leverage our drilling success in the Spyglass Property and further build our acreage position in Divide County is quite exciting," stated Brad Colby, American Eagle's President and CEO.  "In addition to the obvious value of the proved acreage, the strategic nature of adding the additional operated spacing units to our drilling inventory is expected to prove extremely valuable as we further develop the region."
