South Crofty Holdings Ltd.: Slim Hole Drilling Program Now Underway At Meager Creek.

Business Editors


South Crofty Holdings Ltd. (CDNX:SFH.) is pleased to report that the slim hole drilling program is now underway at its Meager Creek Geothermal project site.

The geophysics fieldwork has now been completed at the Meager Creek Geothermal Project, and the report is under final review. Permits for the slim hole drilling program have been received and the fieldwork is now underway. The drilling program is under the direction of Fairbank Engineering Ltd. of Vancouver, who has been involved in the Meager Creek project since its initial discovery and development by B.C. Hydro. The purpose of the geophysics and slim hole drilling is to verify the model of the geothermal system as envisioned by the overall project consultant, GeothermEx of Richmond, California, before the more expensive test wells are drilled to determine the geothermal resource. In addition, the company has retained Craig Aspinall & Associates to assist in consultations with stakeholders and First Nations peoples, and Western Policy Consultants Inc. to assist the company with government relations.
