Calgary, AB, May 3, 2022 – Avanti Energy Inc. (TSXV: AVN) (OTC: ARGYF) (“Avanti” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has been granted 3 helium exploration permits from the Government of Saskatchewan for a total of ~63,000 acres.
The acquisition of these highly prospective helium properties complements the Company’s existing holdings beyond Alberta and Montana and aligns with one of Avanti’s primary strategies of having a well-diversified portfolio of quality helium assets. The permits are in strategically targeted areas for helium exploration, based on the Company’s detailed geological models and technical assessment. All of the lands have had historical shallow oil and gas activity on or adjacent to them and any future operations should benefit from existing access and infrastructure. Avanti has also applied for several additional exploration permits in SW Saskatchewan that are still awaiting regulatory approval.
“With the permits in hand, the team can now start looking at acquiring seismic data, fine tune our geological mapping and put an exploration plan in motion,” commented Genga Nadaraju, VP Subsurface. Adding a complementary asset to our portfolio of high impact helium projects positions Avanti with the potential of providing an irreplaceable resource across geographic areas which is critical for applications such as semiconductor chip manufacturing, aerospace, MRI scanning, optical fibre manufacturing and nuclear power generation.”
The targeted zones for helium in Saskatchewan are similar to the Company’s landholdings in the Greater Knappen area (SE Alberta and NW Montana), focused on the Cambrian and the Devonian reservoirs containing mainly nitrogen with up to 2% helium.
