There are flags every 85 1/2 feet along State Route 39 from Lucas to Millersburg. Precision Geophysical has been soliciting permission from landowners to do a survey, apparently with the vibrating trucks.

It's probably HG Energy. They have been leasing Holmes, Wayne and Ashland in the past year.

Thanks for the info David. For the record East Ohio Oil and Gas is a "shell" company for Western Land Service in Michigan. The terms of their lease are horrible but 10 years ago just about anyone in Ohio would have signed up for $100/acre. From a member of shaleforum:
