Client Testimonials

As we advance our efforts to become a new and independent producer of potash in Saskatchewan, a key requirement for us is to better understand and map the resources in our Vanguard Area, including groundwater - which is a key resource for selective solution mining. Utilizing DST’s during exploration drilling has provided us with data that assists our strategy and planning for further exploration and development. Northstar has been very collaborative and has readily provided ongoing support when needed, enabling us to maximize our use of their results within our team.

The Drill Stem Tests will definitely add value to our project in regard to gaining information on whether the formations above and below the area of interest are fluid bearing or not. This information will be key in determining cavern design if the project advances past exploration. The opportunity to test formation fluid is also of high value to the project.

We really liked the inflate straddle test. This is big for us, because previously we'd had bad luck with getting successful old school straddle packer test off.  We were impressed, good job!
