Vancouver, British Columbia — DESERT MOUNTAIN ENERGY CORP. (the “Company”) (TSX.V: DME, U.S. OTC: DMEHF, Frankfurt: QM01) From the President of the Company. The Company is in the final stage of development that will lead to commercial production. The recently completed financing will allow the company to build all the infrastructure necessary and complete the start-up work necessary to bring six helium wells into production. The McCauley Helium Processing Facility (MHPF) is operational. Nitrogen and atmospheric air was injected into the facility at 250-500 psi and it successfully isolated all of the component elements. Nitrogen was vented off and other elements were separated during the process with trace amounts of helium identified at the end of the processing test.

Helium Wells 4, 5, 6 and 7 were shut-in with KCL fluid to prevent any unwanted release, migration or loss of any gas prior to putting them into production and to address the general security of the wells. After the MHPF was delivered in December 2022, the wells were physically connected (via underground piping and metering manifold) to the MHPF.

The Company is currently securing a swabbing rig in order to remove the fluid via tubing swab. Once that is accomplished, gas can start flowing into the MHPF. Each well will need approximately 3 to 7 days of work. DME expects the 60-to-90-day optimization program that will lead to commercial production will be completed by the end of April 2023.

“This small final step, leading into the plant operating and processing raw gas is a relatively low-risk operation,” said Robert Rohlfing, CEO of DME. “We expect to be a vertically integrated primary producer of helium, selling commercial gas this quarter.”

By the end of June or early July 2023, individual well performance should be completed and stabilized at the “optimum” long-term production rate. The Company will then know the production capability of the MCauley Helium Field (flow rates, pressures and final gas composition).


The Company is pleased to announce that Valorie Farley has accepted the role as the next CFO of Desert Mountain Energy Corp. Valorie is a CPA with experience in power generation and distribution, natural resources, regulatory and financial reporting, audits and real estate development. Scott Davis will continue to administer the Canadian side reporting, financial and audits to assure a smooth transition over the next number of months. This transition will also be including a change to the US GAP procedures and practices.

“I look forward to working with Scott Davis as we transition the accounting into the U.S.,” said Valorie Farley. “One of the first jobs will be identifying tax rebates and government grants that the Company should be eligible to receive, based on our solar and hydrogen initiatives.”  Valorie will immediately assume the accounting for all of the Company’s US corporations.

“We’d like to thank Cross Davis & Company’s accounting team for the thorough work they have done and we look forward to maintaining that relationship as our company transitions and continues to experience growth,” said Robert Rohlfing, CEO of DME. “This move is another significant step forward in fully developing our own internal accounting team facilitating our growth goals in North America and elsewhere.”


Desert Mountain Energy Corp. is a publicly traded resource company primarily focused on exploration, development and production of helium, hydrogen and noble gases. The Company is primarily looking for elements deemed critical to the renewable energy and high technology industries.

We seek safe harbor
