PhotoSat completes highly accurate satellite topographic mapping of WesternZagros's (TSX-V: WZR) Garmian Block in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq

VANCOUVER, May 14, 2013 — (PRNewswire) — PhotoSat is pleased to announce that it has completed satellite topography mapping of WesternZagros's Garmian Block in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq, using stereo satellite photos from the high-resolution Pleiades 1A and 1B imaging satellites. Pleiades 1A and 1B are the world's newest 50cm resolution satellites. The satellite topography mapping consists of an elevation point every meter and contours with 1 meter elevation intervals.  Based on comparisons between the satellite topographic mapping and thousands of ground survey points on similar projects, the accuracy of the satellite topographic mapping is expected to be about 30 centimeters.  The topographic mapping and precision satellite ortho photos will be used for planning and execution of 3D seismic surveys, planning and construction of well sites and well site access roads, field development, and pipeline engineering studies.

"We are delighted to have the opportunity to apply our cutting-edge satellite topographic mapping technology and the world's newest high resolution satellites to advance WesternZagros's Garmian Block in the Kurdistan Region.  Exploration and development success on the Garmian Block will provide significant economic benefits to WesternZagros shareholders as well as to the people of the Kurdistan Region," says PhotoSat president Gerry Mitchell.
