SASKATOON – Royal Helium Ltd. announced on Jan. 23 it has initiated its 2023 exploration program in southwest Saskatchewan by flying approximately 5,960 line-kilometers of proprietary High Resolution Aeromagnetic (HRAM) data over its Cadillac and Swift Current helium properties in southwestern Saskatchewan.

The plan is to open up new areas to exploration, including Swift Current and Cadillac.

President and CEO Andrew Davidson said in a release, “With construction of our first purification facility well underway at Steveville, we are pleased to begin this year’s exploration programs on our helium permit land at Cadillac and Swift Current. The same HRAM program being utilized was a critical factor in the drilling successes at Climax, Val Marie, and Ogema. As an aggressive growth E&P company, we view exploration capex as a critical growth driver for the company and its shareholders.”

The Cadillac survey will cover approximately 4,800 line-kilometres and is designed to refine the basement structural architecture and identify drill targets correlating with historical seismic anomalies, known economic helium shows and current helium producing pools. The Cadillac survey is an extension of the previously acquired HRAM survey flown over Climax in 2019 and is aimed at expanding the known helium fairway approximately 75 km north to Cadillac.

The Swift Current HRAM survey will be approximately 1,160 line-kilometers in an area that has current helium production, and several historically mapped, deep-seated basement structures around the Wilhelm helium pool extending onto Royal’s property.

COO Shayne Neigum said, “Royal’s drilling successes to date can be attributed to our high-grade drill targets developed by correlating historic seismic, well data and mapping with deep, geophysics like this HRAM survey followed by detailed, targeted seismic surveys. We look forward to extending our helium fairway from Climax through to Cadillac and further north around the Wilhelm helium pool. The survey is designed to further define known anomalies, deep subsurface structures, potential closures and ultimately drill targets. Both Cadillac and Swift Current fields have current and past producing helium wells in close proximity to Royal’s helium permit land blocks.”

Royal’s exploration programs for the year include target reconnaissance, exploration, and drilling on all three main permit areas, SW Saskatchewan, SE Saskatchewan and Alberta. Details of each program will be announced as they are finalized, the company said.
