Marksmen Energy conducting seismic tests in Ohio

By Bob Downing Published: October 7, 2013

Details are sketchy at best, but an Alberta-based energy company is proceeding with seismic testing on Ohio.

Here is the statement issued recently by Marksmen Energy Inc:

Marksmen Energy Inc. ("Marksmen" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:MAH) announces that it has entered into a general agreement for land geophysical services with Bay Geophysical Inc.("Bay") of Traverse City, Michigan, for the completion of Marksmen's first 3D Seismic Geophysical survey in Ohio.

Permitting and survey activities are currently under way and Bay Geophysical's acquisition equipment is expected to be on the ground in early to mid-October.

Bay will conduct a high resolution P-Wave 3D Vibroseis reflection survey and utilize a 1280 channel ARIES recording system for data acquisition.

The company offered no information on the sites to be surveyed.
