American Sands Energy reports on oil sands drilling program

American Sands Energy Corp.

American Sands Energy Corp. (OTCBB:AMSE), an oil sands exploration and development company operating in Utah, reports that the results from its recent onsite drilling program to define parameters for its mine at its Sunnyside, Utah, oil sands site are better than expected.

"The results confirm that there is no ground water that will be affected by our mining and processing activities, and the absence of methane in the formation,” said William Gibbs, chairman and CEO. “In addition, rock mechanics support several mining methods."

This is the final site-specific step required for the company to complete its state mining permit and other regulatory applications for the project, which is expected to be filed in March.
