Helium One Update

Commencement of Drilling of Tai-2 Exploration Well


Scirocco Energy (AIM: SCIR), the AIM investing company targeting attractive assets within the European sustainable energy and circular economy markets, notes the below update issued by Helium One, in which the Company has an approximate 1 per cent. holding.



· Helium One has commenced exploration drilling at Tai-2, the second exploration well targeting the Tai prospect. 


· The exploration well targets prospective Lake Bed stratigraphy, which was identified but not fully evaluated as part of the drilling of Tai-1. 


· Tai-2 is located ~20m from Tai-1 and utilises the same drill pad, saving time and money in relocation compared to mobilising from one site to another.


The Company notes that Tai-1 has de-risked the Rukwa Basin by proving a working helium system. With 3,500km 2  of untested licences in the Rukwa area, the Company notes Helium One is excited to continue exploration in this highly prospective helium basin.


With confirmation of a working helium system, Tai-1 supports ongoing exploration with helium shows identified at multiple stratigraphic intervals.  The drilling at Tai-2 will test one of several targets highlighted for additional exploration following positive results from Tai-1.
