Formation Minerals, Inc. Enters into Definitive Agreement To Acquire Haynesville Shale Minerals

June 27, 2024

Provides Additional Company Updates

JACKSBORO, Texas, June 27, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Formation Minerals, Inc. (OTCQB: FOMI) (“Formation” or the “Company”), a growing oil and gas company with a focus on the acquisition and management of oil and gas minerals and royalties, today announced that it has entered into a purchase and sale agreement with a private seller to acquire certain producing mineral interests in Bienville Parish, Louisiana for $220,000 in cash. The acquisition is subject to customary closing conditions, including the receipt of adequate financing, and is expected to close on or about July 26, 2024. Pursuant to the terms of the agreement, Formation is entitled to the cash flow from oil and gas production attributable to the property beginning July 1, 2024. The Company is working to secure the requisite financing to complete this acquisition.

The property is located in the Haynesville Shale and is currently operated by Texas based Aethon Energy Management LLC (“Aethon”). There are currently 3 producing oil wells and pre-permits have been filed for an additional 6-9 oil wells. Aethon is a leading Haynesville natural gas company which is currently running multiple oil rigs and wells in the area. Aethon is currently drilling in the immediate area and testing 2 to 3 mile laterals to ensure maximum production from the wells. The Haynesville Shale is a massive dry natural gas formation in East Texas and Northwest Louisiana which was discovered in 2008.

Scott Cox, President and Chief Executive Officer of Formation, said, “With less than two months post-closing of the Verde Bio Holdings acquisition, we are delighted to announce our first move toward building Formation’s portfolio. This acquisition is located in the active heart of the Haynesville Shale. The wells are in an excellent area that are just out of the decline curve with stable monthly production and with the upside of more wells to be drilled on the acreage. We have great confidence both in Aethon as an operator and in these assets and we look forward to jointly benefiting as they continue to operate and develop the area. We have been and continue to be diligent in buying properties at the right price and in the right areas, thus we believe the Company and its investors will reap the benefits of the rise in commodity pricing, as well as the continued development of our acreage. We are excited to continue executing our business plan and grow the Company and its revenues. We believe this business model to be extremely lucrative and viable given the sector now has over $30 billion in value and continues to grow.”

Additional Company Updates

As previously announced, Formation’s well count continues to rise. Since the closing of the Verde acquisition, the Company has received notice that now over ten new wells are in the process of being brought online in Formation’s oil and gas properties. The new wells and new development assets are located on the Company’s Permian Basin and Haynesville Shales properties which add concrete, new oil and gas development assets to the Company’s portfolio.

“The Company continues to actively evaluate a number of potential acquisitions as we continue to execute on our business plan, including raising responsible capital to deploy into strategic and accretive acquisitions for our existing portfolio, to maximize stockholder value. We recently completed two capital raises, raising gross proceeds of approximately $160,000, with the potential for an additional $200,000. Additionally, we expect to continue to pursue other strategic funding opportunities, including a possible uplisting to a national securities exchange,” concluded Mr. Cox.
