CALGARY, Alberta, June 17, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Helium Evolution Incorporated (TSXV:HEVI) (“HEVI” or the “Company”), a Canadian-based helium exploration company focused on developing assets in southern Saskatchewan, is pleased to provide an update regarding its Mankota helium discoveries.

The 9-18-3-8W3 well (“9-18 Well”) stimulation is now anticipated to take place later in June or in July 2024. The delay is due to higher than normal rainfall in the Mankota area, which has impacted the surface conditions and postponed the start of the 9-18 Well stimulation.

Looking ahead, HEVI is diligently working on acquiring surface leases for multi drilling locations on four sections of recently acquired land, in which the Company holds a 100% working interest (“4 Crown Sections”). In addition, HEVI and its partner, North American Helium Inc. (“NAH”), are working together to finalize drilling locations and acquire surface leases for up to nine joint development wells (the “New Wells”) on a defined helium trend in the Mankota area. The New Wells are expected to spud between Q3 2024 and Q2 2025.

The Amended Options were originally granted on June 30, 2022 at an exercise price of $0.385 per share and are exercisable until June 30, 2027. Pursuant to the Option Amendments, the exercise price of the Amended Options has been amended to $0.15 per share and there is no change to the expiry date. None of the Amended Options are held by insiders of the Company.
