Operations Update

As of June 26, 2014, the Company has a total of 11 Montney horizontal natural gas wells, with an average working interest of 45.34%, in 20.75 gross sections at Kakwa. Eight of the wells are tied in and producing, two wells have been drilled and cased, and one well is currently being drilled and expected to reach total depth in early July 2014. The Company holds a 50% working interest in 16.75 gross sections, a 23.75% working interest in 2 gross sections and a 62% working interest in 2 gross sections at Kakwa.

Production growth continued in the Company's fiscal third quarter ("Q3, 2014") with the addition of two new 50% working interest Montney horizontal natural gas wells in February 2014 contributing to record high average production volumes of 1,056 BOE/d for Q3, 2014 - approximately 50% condensate. This was achieved while also having some production being shut in for safety reasons while drilling operations were being conducted on an existing lease with two producing wells. Revenues for the quarter exceeded $6.9 million with condensate prices averaging approximately $108.63/bbl and gas prices averaging approximately $6.72/mcf.

The Company has accelerated its development plans at Kakwa with the drilling of three 50% working interest extended length Montney horizontal wells from a single surface pad in an effort to reduce costs and improve operating efficiencies. As of June 26, 2014, two wells have been drilled and cased and the third is expected to reach total depth by early July 2014. Production from this 3 well pad is expected to be brought on in September 2014. In July 2014, this drilling rig is then scheduled to move to another existing pad site with a single producing well to drill two development Montney horizontal wells. It is expected that this drilling rig will then be utilized to continuously drill development wells until the end of calendar 2014.

A second drilling rig has been secured to drill a vertical Montney stratigraphic well at Kakwa followed by a Montney horizontal well west of the current developed land block to further delineate the western portion of the acreage block. The vertical well is expected to be drilled in August 2014 at 07-15-63-6 W6M followed by a kick off of a horizontal leg targeting 01-14-63-6 W6M.

As reported on May 22, 2014, a Corporate reserves update was undertaken to evaluate the impact of new natural gas wells brought on production at Kakwa. Effective March 31, 2014, McDaniel & Associates Consultants Limited ("McDaniel") evaluated all of the Company's producing assets. Based on the McDaniel's evaluation, the Company has booked 16.4 million barrels of oil equivalent of proved plus probable ("P+P") reserves and 10.8 million barrels of oil equivalent of total proved ("TP") reserves. The net present value at 10% discount is estimated to be $249.2 million for the P+P reserves and $162.3 million for the TP reserves.

Donnycreek is a Calgary based public oil and gas company which holds approximately 439 gross (313 net) sections of petroleum and natural gas rights, with an average working interest of approximately 70%, prospective primarily for Montney liquid rich natural gas resource exploration and development all of which are located in the Deep Basin area of west-central Alberta.

ADVISORY ON FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS: This news release contains certain forward-looking information and statements ("forward-looking statements") within the meaning of applicable securities laws. The use of any of the words "expect", "anticipate", "continue", "estimate", "may", "will", "project", "should", "believe", "plans", "intends" and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. In particular, but without limiting the foregoing, this news release contains statements concerning the timing of the drilling of wells, the timing to bring on further production, future drilling plans and the primary prospective zone of exploration and development on the Company's lands.

Forward-looking statements are based on a number of material factors, expectations or assumptions of Donnycreek which have been used to develop such statements and information but which may prove to be incorrect. Although Donnycreek believes that the expectations reflected in these forward-looking statements are reasonable, undue reliance should not be placed on them because Donnycreek can give no assurance that they will prove to be correct. Since forward-looking statements address future events and conditions, by their very nature they involve inherent risks and uncertainties. Further, events or circumstances may cause actual results to differ materially from those predicted as a result of numerous known and unknown risks, uncertainties, and other factors, many of which are beyond the control of the Company, including, without limitation: whether the Company's exploration and development activities respecting its prospects will be successful or that material volumes of petroleum and natural gas reserves will be encountered, or if encountered can be produced on a commercial basis; the ultimate size and scope of any hydrocarbon bearing formations on its lands; that drilling operations on its lands will be successful such that further development activities in these areas are warranted; that Donnycreek will continue to conduct its operations in a manner consistent with past operations; results from drilling and development activities will be consistent with past operations;

the general stability of the economic and political environment in which Donnycreek operates; drilling results; field production rates and decline rates; the general continuance of current industry conditions; the timing and cost of pipeline, storage and facility construction and expansion and the ability of Donnycreek to secure adequate product transportation; future commodity prices; currency, exchange and interest rates; regulatory framework regarding royalties, taxes and environmental matters in the jurisdictions in which Donnycreek operates; and the ability of Donnycreek to successfully market its oil and natural gas products; changes in commodity prices; changes in the demand for or supply of the Company's products; unanticipated operating results or production declines; changes in tax or environmental laws, changes in development plans of Donnycreek or by third party operators of Donnycreek's properties, increased debt levels or debt service requirements; inaccurate estimation of Donnycreek's oil and gas reserve and resource volumes; limited, unfavourable or a lack of access to capital markets; increased costs; a lack of adequate insurance coverage; the impact of competitors; and certain other risks detailed from time-to-time in Donnycreek's public disclosure documents. Additional information regarding some of these risks, expectations or assumptions and other factors may be found under in the Company's Annual Information Form for the year ended July 31, 2013 and the Company's Management's Discussion and Analysis prepared for the year ended July 31, 2013. The reader is cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements. The forward-looking statements contained in this news release are made as of the date hereof and Donnycreek undertakes no obligations to update publicly or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, unless so required by applicable securities laws.

Statements relating to reserves are by their nature forward-looking statements, as they involve the implied assessment, based on certain estimates and assumptions, that the reserves can be profitably produced in the future. It should not be assumed that the estimated future net cash flow shown below is representative of the fair market value of the Company's properties. There is no guarantee that the estimated reserves will be recovered or at the commodity prices used to calculate the net present value of such reserves. Actual crude oil, natural gas liquids and natural gas reserves may be greater than or less than the estimates provided herein.

In this news release the calculation of barrels of oil equivalent (boe) is calculated at a conversion rate of six thousand cubic feet (6 mcf) of natural gas for one barrel (bbl) of oil based on an energy equivalency conversion method. Boes may be misleading particularly if used in isolation. A boe conversion ratio of 6 mcf: 1 bbl is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable to the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead. Given that the value ratio based on the current price of crude oil as compared to natural gas is significantly different from the energy equivalency of 6:1, utilizing a conversion on a 6:1 basis may be misleading as an indication of value.

NON-GAAP MEASURES

In this document "Funds flow from operations" and "Operating Netbacks", collectively the "Non-GAAP measures", are used and do not have any standardized meanings as prescribed by IFRS. They are used to assist management in measuring the Company's ability to finance capital programs and meet financial obligations. Funds flow from operations refers to cash flows from operating activities before net changes in operating working capital.

Non-GAAP measures should not be considered in isolation or construed as alternatives to their most directly comparable measure calculated in accordance with IFRS, or other measures of financial performance calculated in accordance with IFRS. The Non-GAAP measures are unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers.

NEITHER THE TSX VENTURE EXCHANGE NOR ITS REGULATION SERVICES PROVIDER (AS THAT TERM IS DEFINED IN THE POLICIES OF THE TSX VENTURE EXCHANGE) ACCEPTS RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE ADEQUACY OR ACCURACY OF THIS NEWS RELEASE.
