Increasing Number of
Wildcats in Wyoming
CASPER-—Wildcat operations are on
the steady increase in Wyoming and
a number of new tests are to be an
nounced shortly. It is understood that
Sinclair Wyoming Oil Co. has taken
over the Frank M. Johnson bloek in
Bell Springs district, Carbon county,
and will drill a test immediately.
Vale Oil Corporation of Billings has
leased up Alkali dome in Big Horn
county and Murphy dome in Hot
Springs and Wnshaki counties. Five
shallow wells have been drilled on
Alkali dome, one of which had a show
of gas in the Graybull sand. Murphy
dome has some 300 feet of closure and
is not far from Black Mountain oil

produce black oil.
Elk Basin has eight active operations
