Elixir Energy Limited based mostly in Adelaide, Australia, supplied an replace on its drilling operations in its 100% owned Nomgon IX CBM PSC. Elixir’s key goal for its first exploration marketing campaign has been to find thick gassy coal seams beneath 300 metres. The outcomes so far of the Nomgon-1 properly have met that purpose. The Company’s Nomgon-1 core-hole properly (location of present properly marked on map on subsequent web page) has now reached a complete depth (TD) of 491 metres. Logging will begin shortly and might be adopted by permeability testing. Well website geologists have measured whole web coal of 82 metres of which 63 metres is deeper than 300 metres. The thickest coal seam beneath this 300 metre minimize off level measures 51 metres (from 373 to 424 metres). The logging will ship a extra correct determine shortly. The vertical properly indicated synclinal coal seams. The well-site geologists have described the observable coal qualities to dominantly be C3-C4 on the AS 2519-1993 Guide to technical analysis of upper rank coal deposit’s brightness scale. This is significantly higher than encountered on the Ugtaal-1 properly. Furthermore, the coals are visibly fractured and cleated, which bodes properly for his or her permeability. Abundant gasoline effervescent from the recovered core was famous throughout the entire interval previous to it being representatively sampled for gasoline content material desorption measurement (a brief video of the effervescent cores might be revealed within the media part Elixir’s web site – www.elixirenergy.web.au). The logging and later gasoline desorption outcomes will ship extra correct figures shortly. Permeability testing outcomes may also comply with within the brief time period.
Elixir’s Managing Director, Mr Neil Young, stated: “We are very excited with the outcomes so far from the Nomgon-1 properly, which has met our key strategic goal of intersecting very thick and visually good high quality coals inside the CSG depth window. Our native Director Mr B Byambasaikhan just lately joined me for a go to to Nomgon-1, the place we have been once more happy to see operations being carried out safely and professionally.”
Elixir Energy Ltd is a gasoline exploration firm centered on the 100% owned Nomgon IX coal-bed methane (CBM) manufacturing sharing contract (PSC) situated within the South of Mongolia, proximate to the Chinese border. The 30,000 km2 PSC was executed in September 2018 and has a 10+ 12 months exploration interval.
