Whitebark Energy Ltd (ASX:WBE) has added 320 acres over the Wizard Lake oil field in Aberta, Canada following a successful land bid.

Under the agreement, any land acquired or sold by either party is subject to certain conditions. As a result, Point Loma has the right to acquire 50% of the new land acquired.
