Dejour Energy (USA) Corp. a wholly owned subsidiary of Dejour Energy Inc. (NYSE MKT: DEJ / TSX: DEJ), an independent oil and natural gas exploration and production company operating in North America’s Piceance Basin and Peace River Arch regions, today announced that it has added ~31,000 net acres to its current exploration landholdings in NW Colorado through a restructuring of its Exploration Joint Venture with Brownstone Energy, in place since 2008. Dejour/Brownstone will however retain their respective 71.5%/28.5% interests in the 2200 acre Kokopelli Project, where the Dejour Federal 6/7-13-21 well is currently drilling. Dejour now holds over 150,000 net acres of oil and gas leaseholds in NE British Columbia and NW Colorado.

With the conclusion of this deal, Dejour regretfully announces the departure of Richard Patricio, VP of Brownstone, as a director of Dejour and member of the audit committee. Over the last 4 years Richard has made many valuable contributions to the Dejour Board and to its various committees. His presence was very much appreciated. Dejour wishes Mr. Patricio every success in the future. The Company plans to announce a realignment of its Board of directors prior to the next AGM.
