Helium exploration company Helium One has completed its 2021 exploration drilling campaign, allowing it to move onto Phase 2 exploration work at its Rukwa Project in Tanzania.
Drilling at Tai-1 defined a working helium system with the Rukwa Basin. Following the revealing of seal, reservoir, and trapping geometries, a charge mechanism in the basic away from known surface seeps was also identified.
A well-developed 130m thick sealing claystone at the top of the Karoo Formation could support the trapping of helium within the reservoir formations beneath.
Further signs of helium are apparent in the Red Sandstone Formation and in shallow traps in the Lake Bed Formation.
