This information was contained ia the Herald some weeks ago, follow- ing the strike in the Dingman. well, but the locations of the drills were not made known until yesterday. engineers and cated the drilling sites, and they de- cided on the locations because the best oil possibilities existed, in their opinion, in the district north of Lund- breck, between the Porcupine Hills and the .Livingstone range of moun- tains. The formation belongs to the cretaceous period, and. it is thought that drilling will locate oil if it is there, wUhiu 1500 or 2000 feet. The location of the 'wells is as fol- lows: About the centre of townships 8, and 30 in range '2, west of the fifth, respectively. The Fahcr Mac- kenzie interests filed on practica'ily nil of the most desirable property, al- though a few local men filed on some hind in the district this Mr. Cunningham accompanied Mr. Segur on his trip through this terri- tory, last fall and looks upon it as a ;ood proposition. Although the Her- ald has been unable to obtain an ex- act statement that the Segur interests would drill there, rumors have not been denied, and the only logical de- duction is that boring will ensue.. Mr. Cunningham states that the who have looked over the Umdbreclc field say that, the indica- tions arc idea] for a (low or oil. Drills for the Alberta Petrolaura and Okotoks companies, which hold leases close to the Dingman well, have already been shipped, from Toledo, and are expected to arrive within a week. Mr. Cunningham is Interested iu both companies, and he states that the contracts for drilling: will be sign- ed within a few days. He considers that both propositions are excellent as the leases are well located, and the boring points will be very clnse to (he Diugman well number 2, and geolo- gists say that they should strike the main basin. Speaking of the manipulation of Okotoks stocks in Lethbridge, M Cunningham stated, that Alberta Pe- troleum stock 'was offered for sals on Saturday afternoon, May IS. On Mon- day it was entirely sold out. Okotoks had an equally phenomenal sale at 10 cents, but after the first issues were sold the companies offered no raor-3 at any price. This started a, demand for these two stocks which inflated their values. This irregularity will continue, Mr. Cunningham said, until the slock exchange -is in working or- der find the prices are accepted. Every person in-Calgary is waiting for announcements from the Mowbray- TJerkeley, the Black Diamond, the .Mc- pougflll-SBgnr and the Monarch wells where satisfactory progress is being made. Mr.. Cunningham states that the indications are that there is a large basin both in the north aiiu the south, and that they will all be event- ually developed- Lumber and timbers for the first drill along the Crow's Nest Pass was loaded last Monday and shipped to Lundbfieclc, from, the Maclareu Lumber company's yards. at 'Blairmore. The drilling machinery for the same we! was ordered May 20 from Toledo and is expected to arrive on the scene of the next ten days. The drilling contract has been signed with Jause'of Calgary for the second dril in -this field, and within a very feu days another will bo ordered ant things will bo booming along the Pass: A. Cunningham, who is interest cd in the Fabcr-Mackenzie syndicate gave .out this information to the Her aid afternoon. Mr. Cun- ningham would make no statement regarding' the mysterious operations reported from Lundhreck a few days ago, but Iris information coincides .Fnrllip.r stat- ed that the drills would be located about three miles north of Lundbrsck. iu reference to the intentions of the Segur interests iu the south Mr. Cun< ugliam only smiled, counselling the Herald reporter lo hold what leases lie might have in the district east of Coutts.
