NXT’s Q1 results reflect the completion of the SFD® survey on four exploration blocks in Colombia. Two additional survey contracts which were conducted in Argentina and Guatemala are planned to be completed in Q2, following which additional progress billings of US $1.1 million will be issued and US $2.3 million of survey revenue will be recognized.

The contract backlog of US $2.66 million relates to a 2011 contract for a survey which continues to be planned for South Asia. Commencement of this contract is pending final permit approvals, and the start date has not been set. In addition, pursuant to a 2011 Letter Of Intent, an existing repeat client has proposed conducting an additional US $1.0 million survey on a Colombia exploration block.
