Huge Cache of Ancient Helium Discovered

A "huge" cache of helium discovered in East Africa could ease a decades-long shortage of the rare and valuable gas.  Researchers in the United Kingdom and Norway say the newly discovered helium gas field, found in the East African Rift Valley region of Tanzania, has the potential to ease a critical global shortage of helium, a gas that is vital to many high-tech applications, such as the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
Helium accumulates inside rock in the Earth's crust over billions of years, from the radioactive decay of the elements uranium and thorium. But the gas remains trapped in the rock until it is freed by very intense volcanic heat, such as that found in geothermally active regions such as the East African Rift Valley, Gluyas said. June 27

The discovery of a "huge" cache of helium has taken place just after Neptune stationed on June 13. A chart for the station at Rukwa, Tanzania where the discovery was made is shown here. Neptune is on the Ascendant and opposite Jupiter and part of a  slightly skewed T-square with Saturn on the MC and Mercury-Admetus on the IC. Among other things, Neptune rules gases while a keyword for Jupiter is  “huge”. Also Neptune and the Ascendant are part of the Arabic Lunar Mansion Al Sa'd al Ahbiyah, The Lucky Star of Hidden Things so that the discovery of a huge gas reserve is easy to understand. But why a noble gas like helium?

Noble gases are typically highly unreactive.  The inertness of noble gases makes them very suitable in applications where reactions are not wanted. For example, argon is used in light bulbs to prevent the hot tungsten filament from oxidizing; also, helium is used in breathing gas by deep-sea divers to prevent oxygen and nitrogen toxicity. Here with the TNP Admetus in the T-square, the reason why a noble gas was discovered becomes obvious. Among the keyphrases for Admetus [1], Martha Wescott lists the following.

ADMETUS; issues with self-containment, shunning; literal and behavioral “cold.”

Do these keyphrases not tell us that the "huge" cache of gas discovered would literally be self-contained or inert? Finally we also note that helium remains trapped in the rock until it is freed by very intense volcanic heat. Admetus is also linked to rocks and stones [1] while Pluto rules volcanoes and by extension volcanic heat. Here Pluto is in hard aspect to Admetus so that it is helping to break up the rock and release the gas trapped inside.
