As recently announced, all major permits associated with the drilling of the Winx-1 well (with the exception of the Permit to Drill) are now in hand. The Permit to Drill will be submitted prior to year-end, as planned. All other logistics are on schedule for commencement of drilling at Winx in
Winx-1 is located ~4 miles east of the Horseshoe1/1A well that significantly extended the highly successful Nanushuk play fairway to the south. Winx-1 will target multiple stacked potential objectives, including the Nanushuk, which is the primary target of the well.
Commenting on the operations update,
The first quarter of 2019 is shaping up to be an important period for the Company with results expected from ongoing analysis related to the HRZ shale, the drilling of the Winx-1 exploration well, further definition of the potential on the Yukon Leases and, of course, the Project Icewine conventional farm-out.
We look forward to a prosperous 2019 and wish all our shareholders a safe festive season."
