First Helium is a Canadian company that is working to develop helium production to meet the growing level of demand globally. The Company is positioned to become a leading North American producer, leveraging a de-risked strategy to achieve near-term cash flow. First Helium expects to deploy the proceeds from its recent offering primarily toward the development of its Worsley Helium Project, which is anchored by a successful helium discovery well that has been production tested with a confirmed helium content of 1.32% and includes a prospective helium land base of over 32,000 hectares for further exploration and development.

Additionally, the Company is pleased to announce that it has retained Generation IACP Inc. (" Generation " or the " Market-Maker ") to provide market-making services (the " Services "). Generation has been retained with the objective of maintaining a reasonable market and improving the liquidity of First Helium's shares. Under the agreement between Market-Maker and the Company (the " Generation Agreement "), the Company has agreed to initially pay Generation a cash fee of $7,500 plus applicable taxes, per month. The initial term of the Generation Agreement will last six months and such term will be automatically renewed for subsequent six-month periods unless terminated earlier by 30 days' prior written notice.

Generation's Services will also involve correcting temporary imbalances in the supply and demand of the Company's shares. The Market-Maker will be responsible for the costs it incurs in buying and selling the Company's shares, and no third party will be providing funds or securities for the Services. Generation will not receive any securities of the Company as compensation, and Generation does not currently own any securities of First Helium. However, the Market-Maker and its clients may acquire a direct interest in the securities of the Company. First Helium and Generation are unrelated and unaffiliated entities; Generation is arm's length to the Company. The Market-Maker is a member of the Investment Industry Regulation Organization of Canada and a member firm of the TSX Venture Exchange.

Helium Evolution Provides Update on First Two Exploration Wells Drilled at McCord

Helium Evolution Incorporated (TSXV:HEVI) (" HEVI " or the " Company "), a Canadian-based helium exploration and production company focused on finding, developing and commercializing assets in southern Saskatchewan, today provides an update on the first two exploration wells drilled at the Company's 100% owned and operated McCord property, HEI-1 (HEI 06-12-006-05W3M) and HEI-2 (HEI 06-2-006-06W3M).

Following casing and evaluation of both wells, initial results did not return sufficient quantities of helium to warrant production testing. As such, field operations on both wells have been halted in order to conduct further analysis on the results and the Company's planned operations program. HEVI has released the contracted rig and is currently reviewing all information gathered during the drilling operations to reassess its exploration model before undertaking additional drilling.
