• Company announces pipeline rehabilitation contracts

PITTSBURGH, PA, July 1, 2008 -- Geospatial Holdings Inc. has announced the formation of Geospatial Pipeline Services, LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary formed to integrate its Smart Probe Pipeline Mapping Technologies with various state of the art trenchless pipeline rehabilitation methods. The Company also announced the signing of two contracts by Geospatial Pipeline Services, LLC.

The first project in the amount of $614,705 is with Capitol Paving Inc. of Washington, DC to evaluate and rehabilitate a 75", 100-year-old brick tunnel below Benning Road in Washington, DC. The work by Capitol Paving is being performed jointly for the DC Department of Public Works and DC WASA (DC Water and Sewer Authority).

The second project, for $60,192 is with Rustler Construction Company, LLC of Lanham, Maryland to evaluate and reline an existing 24" concrete stormwater line.

Mark A. Smith, Geospatial's Chief Executive Officer stated, "The ability of our Pipeline Services group to utilize our Smart Probe Mapping Technologies to accurately map the interior geometry of the pipeline to determine its precise bending radius and centerline allows us to better determine the proper rehabilitation methods to be used."

The Company has hired Tim Nippes, former founder and president of Mid-Atlantic Pipe Services Inc. of College Park, Maryland as the new president of Geospatial Pipeline Services. Mr. Nippes stated, "I have been involved in the construction and pipeline rehabilitation industry for 40 years, and I have never seen a more exciting technology than Geospatial's Smart Probe. For the first time, we can actually understand what is happening inside of a pipeline before we have to determine how to fix it. Unlike a video camera, our Smart Probes give us a 3-dimensional, spatially correct view of the interior of the pipeline and also places that pipeline (again in 3-D) in its exact location underground."

Geospatial Pipeline Services, LLC is headquartered at 5411 Berwyn Road, College Park, Maryland and will offer its specialized pipeline services throughout North America.

Based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Geospatial is an innovative solutions provider of proprietary technologies that permit the accurate mapping and interior geometry assessments of underground pipelines.
