GREATER KNAPPEN PROJECT
The Greater Knappen consists of several project areas, each area defined by it own subsurface structural features. In Alberta, Avanti has a project in Aden and in NW Montana, there are 4 project areas; Sweetgrass, Keith, Kicking Horse and Police Coulee.
The team has identified key areas for helium exploration in Southern Alberta and Montana and to date Avanti has successfully acquired ~78,000 acres of prospective helium acreage within the Greater Knappen area. The asset has multiple helium target intervals in Devonian and Cambrian.

Exploration & Development
Avanti’s asset consists of ~78,000 acres of leases/licenses in Northwestern Montana and Southern Alberta. To date, Avanti has drilled and cased 3 exploration wells in NW Montana. Two of the wells have been completed and the wells combined tested >18,500 mcf/d total gas rate with 1.1% of helium concentration.
Avanti purchased 2-D seismic lines and 3-D seismic data to further refine the geological mapping. Several deep structural closures were mapped, the Company high graded project areas for exploration, and drilling targets were selected.
Avanti has drilled two of the structural features to date. The Rankin 1-17 was drilled in the Kicking Horse structure and the WNG 11-22 and 10-22 drilled in one of the several structures mapped in the Sweetgrass project area. All three wells have been cased for helium potential. The 2 wells in Sweetgrass have been completed in one of the 2 potential helium zones and flowed a total gas of >18,500 MMcfd with 1.1% He. The completion in the Rankin 1-17 well will be conducted later.
With the success of the initial exploration wells, plans are in place to drill other mapped structures in the area.
