Use of Proceeds - Drilling Plan 2018
The first phase of drilling planned for the Q3 and Q4 of 2018 will consist of 2 vertical wells at the Company’s south western Saskatchewan properties. Each well will have a total depth of approximately 3,000 meters to reach the target reservoir, the Deadwood sandstone formation. Each well is anticipated to take about 30 days to drill, case, complete and test at an all-in cost of approximately $1,500,000. Development wells based on results of the vertical drilling and additional vertical wells at other locations are planned and will be announced as the program progresses.
A current information deck with updated maps is available here: www.royalhelium.com. All land (past and present) has been acquired based on a thorough analysis of existing well, seismic and geological data and are identified by RHC to be associated with Saskatchewan’s highest known helium concentrations.
RHC now has 572 sections (366,080 acres) of prospective helium land in total. All of RHC’s lands are in close vicinity to highways, roads, cities and importantly, close to existing oil and gas infrastructure. With stable, rising prices and limited, non-renewable sources for helium worldwide, RHC intends to become a leading North American producer of this high value commodity.
