The second quarter of 2022 was HEVI’s first full quarter as a publicly traded company, cementing HEVI’s position as the largest helium exploration rights holder in North America among helium companies. listed on the stock exchange. The highlight of the quarter was the announcement of the HEVI farm-out agreement (the ” farm-out agreement “) with North American Helium Inc. (” NAH “) and private placements from strategic, non-traded and associated investors, which raised aggregate gross proceeds of $6.9 million. NAH’s farm-out agreement validates and differentiates HEVI’s strategy, while aligning the Company with one of the helium industry’s leading operators.The related financings enhanced HEVI’s financial flexibility to fund the farm-out arrangement and the execution of our overall strategy, while contributing also to a cash balance of approximately $14.0 million at the end of Q2/22.

HEVI’s in-house exploration and development program is complemented by our lease with NAH which provides additional opportunities and additional capital to prove the company’s asset base and continue to move towards commercialization. Under the lease, NAH will drill a total of five wells while incurring 100% of the drilling expenditures on three pre-determined blocks of land in Saskatchewan, representing approximately 2.3 million acres located west of the Third Meridian. (the ” Blocks “), excluding our current drilling objective at McCord. For each well drilled, NAH will obtain an 80% operating interest in the section on which the well was drilled plus nine contiguous sections of land adjoining the well, up to a maximum of 32,000 HEVI will retain a 20% working interest in the reclaimed lands and each well drilled successfully by NAH (the ” Direct interest of HEVI “).

Capital expenditures during the second quarter totaled $1.06 million, primarily for licensing and environmental work, the start of drilling of the company’s first helium exploration well, as well as to pre-purchase casing to alleviate lingering supply chain issues. Drilling of both wells was completed during the third quarter, and although both indicated the presence of helium, the targeted geologic traps did not contain sufficient helium to support production testing at this time. HEVI is committed to maintaining capital discipline and is conducting further analysis of logs and other information obtained through the drilling process to date. We intend to obtain additional 2D seismic data from McCord to facilitate and improve the visibility of the game, and we may also choose to reintegrate these wells in the future. We believe the NAH drill program will also provide valuable data to support the identification of future high quality drill targets.

Currently, HEVI has approximately $10 million in cash and rigorous cost reduction initiatives in place to optimize funds for asset development. In addition, we benefit from a valuable farm-out agreement that can complement our ongoing exploration and development efforts. The HEVI team maintains full confidence in the prospectivity of our vast land package and, due to the long tenure of helium permits granted by the Government of Saskatchewan, retains considerable flexibility in managing our capital.
