June 14, 2022

SASKATOON, SASKATCHEWAN – June 14, 2022. Royal Helium Ltd. ("Royal" or the "Company") (TSXV: RHC) (TSXV: RHC.WT) (OTCQB: RHCCF) is pleased to announce that it has received the final results on its seismic program at Val Marie. The program, which consisted of 35 kilometers of both newly acquired and purchased trade data has identified a series of large structural features, from which Royal has selected its initial drill target as well as five additional high priority targets. The initial well at Val Marie has been permitted and is scheduled to spud on July 10, 2022.

Stephen Halabura, Royal’s VP Exploration states, "The initial seismic program at Val Marie went exactly as planned. The data recovered from the new seismic shoot was of exceptionally high quality and the interpretation of this data by our partners at RPS Energy Services, along with the integration of the existing trade data that we acquired, clearly demonstrates the highly prospective nature of the Val Marie project area."

The Val Marie project is located in Southwest Saskatchewan and consists of claims totalling 13,000 hectares. The project lies in the heart of the Bowdoin Dome feature which has hosted both historic and current helium production.

Appointment of Mr. Martin Wood to Board of Directors
