About Bandanna Energy Limited:
Bandanna Energy Limited (ASX:BND) holds 11 Exploration Permits for Coal (EPC's) with applications for a further five (EPCA's), in the Bowen and Galilee Basins in Queensland. In addition the Company has conventional oil and gas exploration interests in the Cooper Basin of South Australia and Queensland and mineral exploration licences, primarily for oil shale in Queensland. Formerly known as Enterprise Energy Limited, in early October 2008 the Company completed a transaction involving the acquisition of the issued capital of Bandanna Coal Pty Ltd, a capital raising and a 1 for 10 share consolidation. The name change to Bandanna Energy Limited reflected the future emphasis on coal, the Bandanna Formation being a well known coal bearing geological unit within the Bowen Basin.
