CALGARY, Oct. 26, 2011 /CNW/ - Madalena Ventures Inc. and its wholly owned subsidiary Madalena Austral SA ("Madalena" or the "Company"), have commented today on changes in Argentina requiring oil, gas and mining exporters to repatriate all of their export revenue. Madalena's view is that the new regulations are intended to bring export revenue back into the banking system, build reserves and allow greater control over foreign exchange rates. These changes are not expected to have a significant impact on Madalena as the Company has no existing arrangements or plans to export production, plans for the foreseeable future to re-invest any cash flow from operations back into the country and does not expect the changes to impact Madalena Austral's ability to make dividend payments from after tax earnings.
Madalena is a publicly traded international junior Canadian oil and gas exploration company trading on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol "MVN". The Company is actively evaluating international oil and gas opportunities with a primary focus on South America.
