Global Helium Corp. Announces Seismic Review Option Agreement With Industry Leader, North American Helium


CALGARY, Alberta, April 08, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Global Helium Corp. ("HECO" or the "Company") (CSE: HECO, OTC: HECOF) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a seismic review option agreement with North American Helium Inc. (“NAH”) (the “Agreement”), a private helium company engaged in the exploration, development, production, refining and marketing of helium in North America. The Agreement offers HECO the potential to advance its Saskatchewan land base while mitigating up-front capital costs and exploration risk.

Pursuant to the Agreement, NAH has the right to review HECO’s proprietary seismic data covering the majority of the Company’s exploration permits in Saskatchewan (the “Option”), and has until October 1, 2024 to elect to:

  1. drill a test well incurring 100% of the drilling cost, with HECO having the option to participate in the completion and testing of the well at a 20% working interest in any potential discovery, while NAH will retain an 80% working interest in the operations and lands;
  2. terminate the Option; or
  3. survey a minimum of 20 kilometers of new seismic data over the Company’s applicable land permits, with NAH providing a copy of the seismic data to HECO, and then having the option to elect to drill a test well prior to June 1, 2025.   If NAH elects to drill a test well on HECO’s exploration permits, NAH will earn an 80% interest in 36 sections of HECO’s land. Furthermore, under the Agreement, NAH reserves the right to double the land earned (72 sections) if a test well is drilled prior to December 30, 2024.

"We are very excited by this partnership with North American Helium, an experienced and widely respected leader in the helium industry," said Jesse Griffith, CEO of the Company. "This Agreement allows us to leverage the technical expertise and financial resources brought by NAH to accelerate the development of our Saskatchewan helium assets, while concurrently moving our Alberta Manyberries project forward."
