All three gentlemen are very experienced within the resource and exploration business and the Company’s Board of Directors supported unanimously the election of Rafael Pinedo as President of MHIR due to his special local knowledge and experience within the Oil & Gas industry.
As previously announced, the Company has recently received its reserve report prepared by an independent and qualified petroleum reserves and resources evaluator, MKM Engineering Oil and Gas Consulting Services, Inc., which updated and confirmed the Leasehold Estate’s proved reserves as of May 1, 2018.

MHI insiders provided over $200,000 of working capital to cover the ongoing production maintenance and development payments as well as the initial interest payments to the vendor. The initial development funds have been used for rework and development of certain wells including the Silver Red Fork Sand Unit Lease in order to start and increase production immediately.
The Company will continue to evaluate all wells of the to be acquired Leasehold Estate as it intends to develop multi-formation pads in this area of its acreage.”
