BOW VALLEY INDUSTRIES LTD. ANNOUNCE DRILL-STEM TEST

BOW VALLEY INDUSTRIES LTD. ANNOUNCE DRILL-STEM TEST
 CALGARY, Alberta, April 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Bow Valley Industries Ltd. (AMEX: BVI; Montreal, Toronto: BVI), the operator for a group of companies exploring the St. Lawrence Lowlands in Quebec, announces that it has carried out an open hole drill-stem test on the St. Simon-1 well to determine the fluid content of the core interval in the Beekmantown Dolomite formation.
 The drill-stem test performed on April 4 was misrun due to mechanical problems, however, a subsequent test on April 5 appeared to have been mechanically successful. The test resulted in a flow of gas which was too small to measure and this gas is currently being analyzed as to its composition. No water was recovered in the test tool. Core analysis has confirmed that most of the porosity in the cored interval has been plugged by pyrobitumen, thus reducing the volume of gas and its ability to flow.
 The present depth of the well is 4,128 metres, and current operations are to mill metal debris at the bottom of the hole and then resume drilling toward an anticipated total depth of approximately 4,250 metres.
