Ursa believes it has identified an area of east Texas that is highly prospective for resource play development. Ursa has in excess of 35,000 net mineral acres under lease in Tyler, Polk, and Newton counties TX. Ursa believes the austin chalk and other cretaceous formations are oil filled and prospective in this area. The coupling of horizontal drilling with multistage fracture stimulation should unlock this huge resource potential. Legacy development by Anadarko and more recent drilling by BBX display the potential of this cutting edge play.
