US Oil & Gas to Drill 2nd Well at Hot Creek Valley

Onshore Nevada-focused junior explorer US Oil & Gas reported Friday that the Nevada Bureau of Land Management has awarded a permit to drill a second exploration well, Eblana No.2, on its Hot Creek Valley property.

The Permit to Drill was awarded to Major Oil International – a wholly-owned subsidiary of US Oil & Gas.
