Saturn Minerals Inc. Announces Seismic Program
on Saskatchewan Oil & Gas Properties
February, 13, 2013, Vancouver – Saturn Minerals Inc. (TSX.V: SMI) (FSE: SMK) (“Saturn” or the “Company”)
is pleased to announce that it has begun the first phase of its 2013 seismic acquisition program (the “Seismic
Survey” or “Survey”) on EP-71 (the “Little Swan”) and EP-72 (the “Bannock Creek”), properties. Geostrata
Resources Inc. of Calgary, Alberta, has been retained for the acquisition of up to 92 km of 2D proprietary seismic
data on Saturn’s oil & gas properties in eastern Saskatchewan, and a crew has been mobilized, with line cutting
scheduled to begin this week.
On the Little Swan property, the Seismic Survey will cover the northern portions of permit and has been designed to
cover/test the most significant large scale deep-basin anomalies discovered on the Little Swan by way of airborne
gravity and magnetic survey in late 2012. These large deep-basin anomalies indicate the presence of horst-andgraben
structures within the Precambrian basement rocks, constituting potential ‘kitchen’ settings for the generation
of oil from Devonian and older oil source rocks. The Seismic Survey will identify potential structural and stratigraphic
traps over these deep-basin anomalies where the oil may have been trapped. The most promising traps identified in
the Survey will form the drill targets of exploration wells to be drilled following the survey.
The Seismic Survey has been designed and is being managed by the executive and exploration team of Vector
Exploration Corp. (“Vector”) in close conjunction with the Company’s VP of Exploration, Dr. Krzysztof Mastalerz.
From 2006 through 2012, the exploration team of Vector drilled 70 successful exploration & development wells along
the Saskatchewan / Manitoba border based on acquired seismic data and interpretation.
The Seismic Survey is expected to take up to six weeks, with processing being undertaken simultaneously with data
acquisition. EP-71, the Little Swan property, is 253,920 acres in size and EP-72, the Bannock Creek property, is
122,880 acres in size, and cumulatively represent some of the largest oil & gas permits in the province of
“This seismic survey is the first genuine oil & gas focused exploration work in this part of Saskatchewan,” stated Stan
Szary, President & CEO. “The data acquired will be proprietary and a major exploration asset when measured
against the oil seeps and oil source rock discoveries we’ve made in the past 18 months. We’re extremely happy to
be working with the team at Vector who have understood the structure and upside of this play from day one, and
have a proven track record of identifying and drilling successful prospects.”
