The company offers investors significant exposure to the Saskatchewan Viking  light oil play in the greater Dodsland area, which contains an estimated six billion barrels of original oil in place.

The experienced management of Raging River has had a successful track record of building four previously successful oil and gas production companies including Wild Stream Exploration and Wild River Resources which were both sold to Crescent Point Energy Corp (TSX:CPG).

During the first quarter, the Company drilled 45 Viking horizontal oil wells with a 100% success rate. 36 of these wells have been on-stream for at least 65 days with an average rate of 50 barrels of oil per day, per well. Raging River's 2013 forecast exit rate is expected to be approximately 5,400 barrels of oil equivalent per day, a greater than 45% increase from the 2012 forecast exit rate of 3,700 barrels of oil equivalent per day.

Based on the current pace of development, the company has forecast a 10 year drilling inventory, positioning it for long term, sustainable per share production, reserves and value growth.

Analyst Steve Toth stated, "Raging River maintains a strong balance sheet, a cost of capital advantage, and proven ability to extract additional value from acquisitions."
