Calgary, Alberta, July 27, 2023 – Helium Evolution Incorporated (TSXV:HEVI) (“HEVI” or the “Company“), Canadian-based helium exploration company focused on developing assets in southern Saskatchewan, today provides an update on the third farmout well that was drilled and fully funded by HEVI’s farmout partner, North American Helium Inc.

Test Well #3 was drilled on farmout lands within Block 1 at Mankota in Saskatchewan pursuant to a previously announced farmout arrangement (the “Farmout”) (see news releases dated October 21, 2022, and June 28, 2022).

Since Test Well #5 was originally scheduled to spud by March 31, 2024, this represents an acceleration of drilling by over eight months. Test Well #5 is the first of three additional test drills that NAH will undertake on HEVI lands, prior to August 31st, 2023.
