Capitalizing on NASA’s Critical Helium Shortage

Small cap investment opportunities are popping up in the helium sector — particularly in North America.

That’s because the world is quickly running out of reliable helium supply, and North America’s gas-rich soils are poised to fill a large portion of the global shortfall. 

We’ve prepared a feature-length report on a top-emerging small-cap helium explorer that’s set to become North America’s next producer — it’s a report you simply do not want to miss.

Capitalizing on NASA’s Critical Helium Shortage.

We’ve been talking a lot about helium’s wide array of uses, including in healthcare (MRI machines) and in technology (chip manufacturing).

Helium also has critical applications in the aerospace industry, both in its gaseous and liquid forms.

For example, liquid helium is used in cryogenic systems to cool and liquefy gases, such as hydrogen, which are used as rocket propellants or as coolants for spacecraft.

As a gas, it’s deployed as a pressurizing agent in rocket propulsion systems, wherein the helium gas acts as a driving force to expel the flow of propellants into engines during space missions. 

In other words, you cannot blast off into space without helium! 

Helium is also an ideal tracer gas for leak detection in the space industry — a key safety component to manned space missions. The ultra-light gas is easily detected even at minute concentrations, allowing technicians to identify and locate potential leaks in rocket engines, fuel lines, and other critical systems.

Just two years from now, NASA will be sending its first manned mission to the moon since Apollo 11 way back in 1969 — the same year as Woodstock. And it wants to send astronauts to Mars by the late-2030s. 

Those missions simply cannot happen without an ample supply of helium. 

And with helium being an essential resource not only for space exploration but also for the medical, tech, and energy sectors, it’s important to understand that helium is a finite resource here on Earth. 

Helium, which is a non-renewable element, is generated deep underground through the natural radioactive decay of elements such as uranium and thorium. 

Sophia Hayes, a chemist at Washington University in St. Louis, states, “It takes many, many millennia to make the helium that’s here on the Earth. The helium seeps up through the Earth’s crust and gets trapped in pockets of natural gas where it can be extracted.”

And since it cannot be renewed, our planet is quickly running out of helium.

For investors, it means an opportunity to capitalize on the select few companies that are positioned to become the NEXT helium producers — particularly in stable, mining-friendly regions such as North America. 

In Canada, the production of helium is cleaner, or “greener” than in most other jurisdictions as the gas is found in such high concentrations that it can be extracted directly, rather than as a byproduct of natural gas production, which emits high levels of methane. 

The company featured in our brand new report is currently wrapping up construction of its first helium production plant in Canada, which will be fed by two of its 100%-owned helium wells.

And it’s exploring for more high-concentration helium reservoirs on its immense Canadian land package as we speak. 

At the moment, the company’s shares are trading quietly just below Wall Street’s radar at around 40-cents. 

But that will likely change once its first plant comes online, and, hence, the timing here is absolutely critical.
