During the year ended December 31, 2023, HEVI continued to execute on its focused strategy of developing the Company’s 5.6 million acres of helium rights in southern Saskatchewan and advancing its ultimate goal of producing and selling helium, generating cash flow and driving positive returns for shareholders. HEVI has remained committed to maintaining ongoing financial flexibility, demonstrated by a positive working capital position of $5.7 million at December 31, 2023, excluding $0.8 million of tubing and casing that was pre-purchased and not utilized.

Operations Update

Looking forward to the remainder of 2024 and into 2025 and as announced on April 2, 2024, the Company is strategically planning to embark upon a drilling program in the Mankota area of Saskatchewan with its partner, North American Helium Inc. (“NAH”), building upon three existing helium discoveries in the region. HEVI and NAH are planning to drill up to nine joint development wells (the “New Wells”) which are expected to spud between Q3 2024 and Q2 2025, subject to surface and environmental restrictions. With HEVI’s 20% working interest in the New Wells, the Company is positioned to capitalize on this strategic expansion.
