is favorable and it will soon be ready to move forward with final negotiations
on its option agreement for leases known as the Holmes Oil Unit Number 1 in
the East Texas counties of Cherokee and Rusk. The agreement is with Ponta E&P

is an excellent prospect,” said Robert Bludorn, President and CEO of Horizon
Energy Corporation. He added, “Our initial research is showing a geology in
Cherokee County that validates a renewed drilling program.”
