Global Helium has started its extensive seismic programme in Southern Saskatchewan, Canada.

The helium exploration and development company on Tuesday (18th Jan) said it has commenced shooting of 50km of seismic over several of its existing permits in in region.

All new seismic lines are being acquired based on existing permits in-hand, and an additional 20km-50km of seismic will be acquired in the coming weeks, when further permits are received.

Seismic data acquisition and analysis is a time-tested, mathematically intensive method of identifying and measuring sub-surface lithology for the company’s geological team to define subsurface structural traps, or structures.

Once structures are geophysically identified, the data can be further refined to identify specific drilling targets on the Global Helium’s landholdings on those structures.

Global Helium wants to utilise the data from the seismic acquisition programme to generate drilling targets and to commence drilling in 2022.

Wes Siemens, President of Global Helium, said, “We are excited to be undertaking a large assessment of our three core areas. This initial seismic will help to expand our drill locations to confirm prospects in Core Area 1, near Swift Current.

“Later this winter the seismic program will continue and will include Core Area 2, south of Regina, and Core Area 3, near the US border. This entire programme is expected to produce several drill-ready prospects and advance a number of other prospects closer to drill-ready stages.”
