Seventeen miles southwest of Tilden, Texas, a wildcat has been permitted by San Antonio-based Welder Exploration & Production Inc in the western portion of McMullen County (RRC Dist. 1).
Plans call for the 1 Briscoe (API 42-311-34125) to be drilled to a total depth of 6000 ft. Located less than a mile east of the La Salle County line, it is apparently targeting the Wilcox on a 483-acre lease in section 43, BS&F survey, A-581.
