As announced to the market on 5 June 2017, the Company entered an agreement to invest in the Tulainyo Gas Discovery in the Sacramento Basin in California, United States of America. The Company signed an agreement with Gasfields LLC (Gasfields), Bombora Natural Energy Pty Ltd (Bombora) (which at the time was a subsidiary of Pancontinental Oil & Gas NL (ASX: PCL)) (Pancontinental), and United Energy Royalties Pty Ltd, pursuant to which the Company had the opportunity to earn up to a 60% economic interest in Gasfields.

3. as Bombora has guaranteed the obligations of Gasfields in the original Farmin Agreement between Gasfields, Bombora and Cirque Resources LP of 21 March 2017, the Operator would look to Bombora to make that payment in the event that Gasfields failed to pay it, 

Prior to receipt of the claim from the Operator to Bombora above, the Company notes there was only an amount of US$321,353.00 owed by it relating to costs of the Tulainyo Gas project.
