In particular, the properties we are evaluating could, if we close, provide us with a substantial and profitable traditional oil and gas business that enhances our recently acquired Central Kansas properties as well as the continuation of our strategic exploration, development plan. and production of noble gas materials including helium. Our recent partnership agreement with US Noble Gas. LLC teams us with experts in the exploration, development and production of such noble gas reserves and is expected to enhance the development and production of noble gas resources which we already know exist on the properties. We believe that the helium and other rare gases potentially present on our properties in central Kansas, along with the proven reserves on the acquired properties, will contribute to our vision of becoming a major producer of helium and other noble gases. . Helium is a rare rare gas of considerable value compared to natural gas (methane). It is used in many high value added applications such as MRI coolants, space exploration and microchip manufacturing. The world is currently facing a high-profile helium shortage and the world is in need of helium. The Company will continue its quest to add additional properties that show the potential for significant noble gas reserves, including helium, and will report on our progress in future updates, ”concluded Mr. Ross.
