Empire Selects 'Sweet Spot' in Central Tasmanian Acreage

Empire Energy Corporation International reported that its subsidiary Great South Land Minerals, Ltd. (GSLM) has reassessed the drilling priority of its exploration targets.

Completing a sweet-spot analysis started over 6 months ago, Dr. Clive Burrett has announced that Bracknell #1 well will be GSLM's first exploration target. Followed shortly after this first well, exploration drilling of targets Bellevue #1 and Butler's Rise #1 will take place. The drilling sequence of Bellevue and Butler's Rise may be swapped due to ecological consideration, such as nesting period of the local eagle population, added Dr. Burrett. Initial exploration period will encompass an additional five exploration targets, bringing the total number of wells drilled in Phase One to eight.
