DESERT MOUNTAIN ENERGY ANNOUNCES SIGNIFICANT HELIUM PERCENTAGES IN TWO NEW WELLS IN ARIZONA

Vancouver, British Columbia — DESERT MOUNTAIN ENERGY CORP. (the “Company”) (TSX.V: DME, U.S. OTC: DMEHF, Frankfurt: QM01) is pleased to announce that it has tested significant Helium percentages in its new exploratory wells in Arizona.

The company has completed its independent gas analyses on both of its exploratory wells in Arizona, the State 10-1 and State 16-1.  In the 10-1 well the company perforated 5 feet of a limey sand in the lower Pennsylvanian-aged Formation out of which the company feels, based on open-hole logs, is a possible productive 28-foot zone with resistivities from 38 to 73 ohms.  Well logs delineate a drop in the porosity in the mid portion of this zone, consequently it feels that the additional interval under the current perforations would require separate sets of perforations to produce.   Initial shut-in pressure was 900 psi and through the multi-choke flow test, flowing pressure increased to 940 psi on a 1-inch choke with a coefficient of 25.76, equivalent to a non-corrected flow rate of 24,214 MCFGPD.  The average gas analysis showed Helium 7.1321%, Nitrogen 77.0837%, CO2 4.0183% Methane 2.6512% and other assorted minor gases.

The 16-1 well also perforated 5 feet of sand in the Supai Formation out of which the company feels, based on open-hole well logs, is a possible 61-foot productive zone.  Again, similar to what was found in the 10-1 well, there are two stringers of very dense dolomitic lime dropping the porosity.  Additional perforations would be required to access these intervals of possible production.   Initial shut-in pressure was 372 psi and through the multi-choke flow test, flowing pressure decreased and then quickly stabilized at 368 psi on a 3/8” choke with a coefficient of 3.40, equivalent to a non-corrected flow rate of 1,251.2 MCFGPD.  The average gas analysis showed Helium 4.0904%, Nitrogen 90.2742%, CO2 0.0063%, Methane 3.5535% and other assorted minor gases.

Based on normal accepted industry operation procedures, the company at this time and prior to further engineering and flow testing, would entertain a possible daily flow rate of between 4,100 and 5,600 MCFGPD based on aggregated production from both wells. The Company has compared these wells to the closest established and documented helium production located approximately 35 miles NE in the Pinta Dome Field.  Note: Desert Mountain Energy’s wells have been completed in members of the Pennsylvanian-aged Formations which are lower in depth than the helium productive Permian-aged Coconino Formation found at Pinta Dome (AZOGCC archives).  Production comparisons with a number of wells from the prolific Pinta Dome Field, specifically the Kerr-McGee Barfoot State#1, clearly shows that large artificial formation stimulation was not required to exceed the original projected calculated reserves by over 500%, over a 13-year production life (Olukoga 2016, AZOGCC Barfoot #1 well files).

The Pinta Dome, Navajo Springs Unit, and East Navajo Springs Unit, in total, comprise only 26 total productive wells (Conley, J.N. 1974).  The majority of the production came from Pinta Dome and was from only 11 wells, (AZOGCC production records, Olukoga 2016).   Those wells averaged about 8% helium across the field with a high initially noted at 10.78% in one well. The thicknesses of the pay-zones varied greatly from 2’ to just over 103’. Consequently, the overall perforated zones can be misleading, but after eliminating the single thickest pay- zone completion of 73 feet, (Eastern State 1-28, AZOGCC files,) the pay-zone perforations falls to 27 feet.  Initial shut-in pressures averaged 172.3 psi and the average flowing pressures averaged 99.3 psi in 1962 and in 1976, the last year of continuous production, was down to 60.3 psi (Rauzi 2003, Olukoga, 2016).   Total production from the three fields was just over 9.6 billion cubic feet of total crude gas with approximately 2/3rds produced from the 11 Pinta Dome wells.  Actual helium as a percentage of production may vary greatly, as within any given field, as the extent of the productive area is not known at this time.

The company is not seeking to publish reserve estimates at this time, in part due to the fact that both wells have been completed in zones where there is currently no nearby production in Arizona from which to conduct accurate long-term reserve analysis.  However, the company will be having an independent review and submit their findings and should the qualified person be unable to report without reservation on reserves data, he shall set out the cause of the reservation and the effect, if known to the qualified reserves evaluator on the reserve data or prospective contingent resources data.

It should be noted that the zones that have been perforated are present on both well logs and reflected on seismic, and therefore do provide some guide that there is a possible extension as both wells are about 1.4 miles apart.  With the pressure differential in the formations in the wells, it is not currently possible to commingle production because the lower-pressured zone would simply not produce with the higher-pressured lower zone opened within the same well.  Therefore, and in accordance with normal accepted industry guidelines and Arizona State Oil & Gas Conservation Commission rules, no allowance for commingling within the same wellbore would be appropriate or approval granted.

Note that the previously mentioned flow rates may not be the actual daily productive flow rates once actual production is established!  Actual productive flow rates may vary from these suggested possible flow rates and future net revenue for individual wells may not reflect the same confidence level as estimates of future reserves on all wells, due to the effects of aggregation.

DESERT MOUNTAIN ENERGY CORP. DISCOVERS NEW GAS FIELD IN ARIZONA WITH SIGNIFICANT GAS FLOWS AFTER COMPLETING BOTH NEW WELLS

Vancouver, British Columbia — DESERT MOUNTAIN ENERGY CORP. (the “Company”) (TSX.V: DME, U.S. OTC: DMEHF, Frankfurt: QM01) is pleased to announce that it has released the completion rig on both the State 10-1 and State 16-1 wells in Navajo County, Arizona. Flow tests have been conducted after perforating on both wells from zones where significant gas flows where found during drilling operations. The Company feels the pressure and volumes on both wells during testing fall well within the normal accepted oil and gas industry practices for determination of commercial flow rate protocols, with maximum non producibility volume speculations not taken into consideration.

Produced dry gas samples have been collected and sent to an independent lab for a total gaseous analysis. It is expected that results from these tests will take 7-10 days. The Company will address possible gas flow volumes, actual gross helium, other commercially viable rare earth gases and most likely production scenarios after testing results are received and reviewed by the team. It should also be noted the Company has fully restored and prepared both drilling locations for hydro seeding with native plant and grass species, when weather conditions are considered most favorable.

Significant probable pay zones were found in both wells. Each well had only 5’ perforated of the formation with the highest resistivity, porosity and neutron gas cross over on open hole wells logs combined with where the most significant gas flows had been encountered during the June and July drilling program. The Company utilized the newest design in booster charge perforation technologies on both wells to maximize initial production. These perforating charges were specifically selected to meet strict company geologic and drilling guidelines to eliminate the need for hydraulic fracturing and formation stimulation. This was accomplished via a single zone completion in both wells, proving up new field production from previously non-producing formations in Arizona. The Company considers it has other highly prospective pay zones within each well. Again, every formation the Company found containing gas in both wildcat wells would previously have been considered purely as speculative and will continue as such until the Company elects to drill, complete and test. Thereby establishing them first as additional prospective then productive formations.

Robert Rohlfing, CEO of the Company, crafted geologic studies within NE Arizona in October 1999 to search for what was felt to be a number of critical parameters required in relation to finding and then being able to cost effectively produce helium in Arizona. Careful application of the information it found via on the ground geologic studies, seismic and additional geophysical studies combined with many years of experience to delineate specific targets which would have the highest opportunity to drill and complete wells without the need to use large artificial formation stimulation, like is routinely done in many other geographical areas. The Company feels these additional proprietary minimum guidelines are key components in understanding overall the granularity of the entire spectrum of helium origination through production. The Company, continues with its own internal desire not to seek helium production from any zones where well completion would come from the same zone within a formation where potable water is withdrawn for human consumption.

DESERT MOUNTAIN ENERGY CORP AND THEIR COMMITMENTS TO ARIZONA

Desert Mountain Energy Corp. Continues to fulfill its promise of being an environmentally responsible partner in the State of Arizona. The Company is committed to protecting flowing treatable groundwater and have already and will continue to allocate funds for future projects that include isolating off these zones via cementing before drilling through, setting surface casing and cementing it into place.

The Company firmly believes that children are the future of Arizona and that their education is a top priority and are committed to being a responsible partner of the community in helping to provide a new revenue source to assist in funding education through the royalties it will be paying on the helium produced from its leases with the Arizona State Land Department.

DESERT MOUNTAIN ENERGY COMMENCES COMPLETION AND TESTING OF ITS FIRST TWO HELIUM WELLS IN ARIZONA AND APPLIES FOR 14,440 ACRES OF NEW LEASES IN THE HOLBROOK BASIN

Vancouver, British Columbia — DESERT MOUNTAIN ENERGY CORP. (the “Company”) (TSX.V: DME, U.S. OTC: DMEHF, Frankfurt: QM01) is pleased to announce that completion and testing operations have now commenced at its initial two wildcat helium wells  in Arizona’s Holbrook Basin, DME Well No. State 10-1 and DME Well No. State 16-1. Both wells were successfully drilled in June and July with production casing set.   As reported in our Press Releases dated June 23, 2020 and July 20, 2020, both wells encountered significant gas flows from multiple zones aggregating over 180 ft. in each well, with helium and other gaseous content yet to be determined.

 A workover/completion rig is presently on site and completion and evaluation procedures have now been commenced. The completion and evaluation procedures include logging of the cased holes, perforating the casing at select locations corresponding with anticipated pay zones, testing the pressure and flow rate of gas from the perforations, and gas sampling to evaluate full gaseous content. Industry best quality control and safety measures will be adhered to, with gas samples sent to an independent third party analytical laboratory.  The Company anticipates that the completion and testing work will be complete with results available in the next few weeks. The Company does not plan to comment further on the work being done until the completion and testing is complete, at which time this will be announced.

The Company wishes further to announce that it has now made application to the Arizona State Department of Land to acquire an additional 14,440 acres of new helium leases in various parts of the Holbrook Basin.  This application was made based on a detailed analysis by the Company’s technical team and is part of the Company’s ongoing program to create added-value for our shareholders through strategic property acquisitions.

Robert Rohlfing’s skill set is well-suited to the long-term direction of the Company and he has served the Company ably as its Executive Vice-President of Exploration and Head of Technical Operations for the past two years.  In such capacities, he has overseen our exploration and drilling programs on a hands-on basis, while also interfacing with our financial department and entire management team as well as the capital markets.

Robert is highly qualified to assume his new role, as a seasoned oil & gas industry operations executive with over 25 years’ experience in formulating, conducting and managing successful exploration, drilling, development and production programs worldwide.  He has conducted exploration and drilling programs for a wide variety of companies for helium, hydrocarbons, precious metals and other minerals in diverse areas ranging from Arizona, Kansas, Oklahoma and Alaska in the U.S. to Papua New Guinea, Malaysia, Australia, Canada, Viet Nam and Cambodia.

According to Robert Rohlfing, new CEO of the Company, “We are grateful for Irwin Olian’s leadership over the past twelve years and wish to thank him for his many contributions.   He founded our predecessor African Queen Mines Ltd. and successfully navigated that company through the mining recession acquiring, developing and selling several gold projects.  During the past two years, he has overseen rebranding of the Company as Desert Mountain Energy Corp. in the Helium space and has helped to position the Company for success in its new direction.  We look forward to his continued contributions to our success in the future and wish him every success in his other endeavors.  I look forward to taking the reins from Irwin at this time, guiding the Company on the next phase of its success.”
