Message: Royal Helium Announces Production Testing Underway at Climax-1 and Climax-2

 Royal Helium Ltd. ("Royal" or the "Company") (TSXV: RHC) announces that it has engaged two service rigs and that the completions and testing program has been initiated at Climax-1 and Climax-2.  The finalized testing program, which was developed in concert with Sproul Associates Ltd., involves the sequential perforation and gas flow testing of several separate intervals identified during drilling.  Finalized results from the testing program will be reported as the information becomes available.

Royal further announces that the Climax-3 helium well has been drilled to its target depth of 2,600 metres.  Royal's completion team is reviewing the log data at Climax-3 to determine the intervals to be production tested. The completion and testing program at Climax-3 will commence once testing is complete on Climax-2. 

Andrew Davidson, President and CEO of Royal comments, "We are pleased to have our initial 3 wells at Climax drilled to target depth and we are excited to be production testing these high value targets. We want to thank the team from Savanna 419 for their diligent work in completing this drilling program safely and effectively". 

Mr. Davidson continues "With 2 service rigs operating we anticipate the testing to be completed on all 3 wells over the next few weeks. While any significant developments will be announced as they are received, all results will be evaluated by Sproule for a potential helium resource and production over multiple separate zones within this large structural closure".

The three Climax wells were drilled into the Precambrian basement, directly below the Deadwood Formation. The Deadwood is a sand and shale sequence that is a known helium production zone in Saskatchewan. These first three wells are targeting different parts of the same large structural trap identified on the central portion of the Climax land block.
