Austin Developments together with its joint venture partner, Pennant Energy says that production testing of its Kaybob S No. 1 is complete. After reviewing the geophysical logs of the well, multiple zones were tested. Although hydrocarbon was encountered, none of the zones tested proved to contain commercial quantities.

The Bronson Property has an extensive 3D seismic program that was completed last winter, an existing geochem survey completed in July 2006, and a newly completed geochem survey. The newest geochem survey was completed in July 2007 and was conducted to pinpoint potential drill locations on the Bronson property.
