Legend Oil and Gas, Ltd. (OTC.BB:LOGL) has completed the acquisition of undeveloped mineral leases in Divide County, North Dakota in close proximity to the Ambrose Field. 

Legend has been evaluating and assembling opportunities to acquire undeveloped leases in Divide County since January 2011. The Company has now completed the acquisition of leases on six sections of land in the County totaling 3,840 gross acres of Bakken and Three Forks development land (net 387 acres). 

The leases are contiguous in nature and are in close proximity to the development of the Three Forks play, being actively drilled by SM Energy and Baytex Energy in the Ambrose field to the east from the acquired leases.
The acquisition will give the company an interest in four drilling spacing units in the area (a drilling spacing unit consisting of two sections or 1,280 acres). Legend will continue to pursue the acquisition of additional acreage in the area and will wait on the results of development wells currently under confidential status before moving forward with a drilling program on the leases. 

Legend Oil and Gas, Ltd. is a managed risk, oil and gas exploration/exploitation, development and production company with activities currently focused on leases in southeastern Kansas and northern North Dakota.
