The corporate information contained in this presentation
contains forward-looking forecast information. The reader is
cautioned that assumptions used in the preparation of such
information, although considered reasonably accurate by
Canadian Spirit Resources Inc. (CSRI) at the time of
preparation, may prove to be incorrect. The actual results
achieved during the forecast period will vary from the
information provided herein and the variations may be
material. Consequently, there is no representation by CSRI
that actual results achieved during the forecast period will be
the same in whole or in part as those forecast.
 Unconventional natural gas: One of the fastestgrowing sectors of North America's energy industry
 Canadian Spirit Resources: Focused on developing
1.0 tcf of unconventional natural gas from coal (NGC)
 A huge resource play: Farrell Creek, northeast British
Columbia, 40,000 + acres, 94% (average) owned by
CSRI, 80% of land includes deep rights, $30 million
invested to date
Current Status
 Six test holes drilled and cased
 Two holes fracture-stimulated
in the Gething Formation
 Both holes producing natural
gas and water
 Dedicated a test hole to
evaluate gas-bearing shales
Resource Potential: Farrell Creek
Sproule Associates Limited Preliminary Report
April 17, 2006:
Contingent gas-in-place resource potential
 Gething coals
12 – 16 bcf per section
 Gething shales
11 – 17 bcf per section
 Gates & Moosebar shales
7 – 8 bcf per section
Next Steps
 Measure production rates
 Develop pilot plan to drill and
complete more test holes
 Focus on engineering,
operational and marketing
aspects of developing a
commercial project

Natural Gas from Coal (NGC)
 U.S. 10 years ahead of Canada
 Industry in Western Canada growing rapidly
 Production of unconventional gas similar to
production of conventional gas
 Typically, to economically produce natural gas from
coal, formation water must be removed first
A Compelling Case
NGC compared to conventional gas
 Coal can store up to 6 or 7 times more gas
 NGC well can have 3 times the life
 NGC recovery factors can be as high as 80%
A Clear Vision
 CSRI focused on
unconventional gas,
including NGC
 2002 regional NGC
assessment of WCSB
 Five-year plan: explore for
and develop 1.0 tcf of NGC
within five years in an
environmentally safe and
responsible manner
A Clear Vision (cont’d)
Within three years:
 Identified several large
resource plays
 Assembled high working
interest land position in
northeast B.C.
 Began evaluating productive
capability of principal
resource property
