Green Planet Group Making Green Gold Mining a Reality.
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Green Planet Group, Inc. (OTCBB:GNPG) announced today that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Green Mining Technologies, Inc. (GMT) has signed an agreement with Earth Explorations, LLC, to acquire its first gold mine.
GMT's investment to acquire the mining property and own 50% of the mine's ongoing net profit is $800,000 cash to be paid from initial operating profits within the first twelve months, 4.4 million shares of restricted common stock, and 50% of the ongoing royalty income and revenues generated by Green Mining Technologies. The agreement is scheduled to close on January 31, 2010.
Located in Northwestern Arizona, this mine has estimated reserves of 1.44 million ounces of gold and 1.73 million ounces of silver, as reported in an independent third-party analysis conducted in August of 2009 by W M Engineering. Based on current precious metal values, the mine's total reserves have been valued at $1.59 billion.
Mining operations are expected to begin within 90 days from closing. Initial monthly revenue projections are $272,000, increasing to $510,000 over the first 6 months. After processing all of the existing surface material, underground operations are projected to begin yielding monthly revenues of approximately $10 million.
Green Mining Technologies, Inc.
With the formation of Green Mining Technologies, Green Planet Group has brought together a consortium of four leading research and development companies that have numerous patents on improving the planet's soil, water and air, with the express purpose of significantly reducing or eliminating the negative environmental impact of past mining practices. As exclusive suppliers of their technologies for precious metal mining, all four companies in the consortium will be utilized by GMT to diminish the environmental impact of ore extraction, processing and transportation, while restoring the land and the environment in and around mining sites.
GMT has also signed a long-term agreement with Earth Explorations, LLC (the original mine investor) for the final development, implementation and licensing of GMT's green mining technologies. Earth Explorations and GMT will equally own all technologies developed and any revenues and profits they may generate.
Earth Explorations intends to utilize GMT's patented systems to mine the gold on their other 11 mining properties. GMT's long-term goal is to license this green technology to other gold mining companies and receive royalty payments as a percentage of the gold produced. The Company expects that the more stringent recent environmental regulations being implemented regarding mining in particular and the environment in general will greatly spur both industry and public awareness of GMT's breakthrough technologies, thereby creating significant new revenue and income opportunities for GMT.
