Helium One‘s main asset, the Rukwa project, is a large scale primary helium project in Tanzania which is estimated to be one of largest projects of its type in the world.
It is fully-funded for an exploration programme that’s slated to start in the first half of 2021. It will comprise seismic and three wells.
“Our admission to AIM is a hugely significant moment for Helium One,” said David Minchin, Helium One chief executive in a statement.
“Following our oversubscribed capital raise we are fully funded to carry out an aggressive exploration programme commencing in Q1/Q2 2021. This drilling programme will enable us to prove what we believe is an asset with globally strategic implications in a supply-constrained helium market.”
He added: “Helium One is the only company listed on AIM that provides investors exposure to helium – a scarce and irreplaceable commodity which is essential for many modern technologies. We look forward to updating our new and existing shareholders as we progress this programme.”
