Saturn Minerals Inc. has earlier reported that the Bannock Creek property ground conditions have enabled the Company to move a rig and crew to the property. The oil exploration well 9A-5-44-8w2 (9A-5) has now been spudded and drilling is underway.
Saturn has contracted with North Rim Exploration Ltd. and Axiom Exploration both of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, to provide all logistical support and the drill for the drilling program. The Company's Advisory Board member, Wayne Slemp, is on site for the entire drilling operation of the 9A-5 well. Mr. Slemp has over 43 years of experience in the oil and gas industry and 37 years directly related to drilling operations.
