312 Grams (10 Troy Ounces) Produced for the Month of January 2007, With Total Gold Inventory Now at 396 Grams (13 Ounces), Pearl Asian Mining Industries, Inc. Reports.
MANILA, Philippines -- Pearl Asian Mining Industries, Inc. with Stock SYMBOLS: U.S.A. (OTC:PAIM); Germany (XETRA:R1Z) and (Frankfurt:R1Z) provides the following production report for its Binasan Gold Project - Operation Cagayan de Oro (CDO). For the first month of commercial operations in January 2007 covering just 26 operating days, Pearl Asian produced a total of 312 grams (10 Troy Ounces, with 31.1 grams in an ounce) of gold valued at about $6,400. Pearl Asian considers this to be a substantial achievement, taking into account that most gold mining companies take more than three years of exploration and development prior to its first gold production, whereas Pearl Asian was able to achieve its first commercially produced gold just 7 months after start of exploration & development. President/COO for Mindanao Operations & CRO Manolo Tecson reports: "Total Pearl Asian gold inventory is now at 396 grams (13 ounces) valued at $8,150. As we need to build substantial gold inventory of at least 25 kilograms minimum before we make our first gold delivery to WIET, we are currently implementing initiatives to substantially increase gold production in order to achieve our initial target production of 1 kilogram (32 Ounces) per week valued at $20,579 by end March 2007, and increase it further afterwards."
The activities to substantially increase gold production consist of several measures to be implemented by mine personnel. To enhance effectivity of the hydraulicking method used to expose gold ore bodies, water flow rates will be increased up to double the current rates. New channels will be excavated increasing the surface area of water flow. A new dam will be constructed to ensure a continuous supply of water to the hydraulicking activity. Construction of new sluice boxes are also being done, each having a total area of about 30 square feet. These sluice boxes entrap gold particles for harvesting, to be fed to the gold processing equipment. Finally, as a result of the surface mapping activities by PAIM's geological team, there is a very good chance that another hydraulicking trench will be developed within the next month. "It is also worth noting that so far, we have only been extracting gold basically from the surface. Once diamond drilling is done, we can then start to extract the richer gold veins under the ground," added President Tecson.
Meanwhile, WIET LLC, the US company which has gone into an agreement with Pearl Asian to purchase gold, is coordinating on a schedule for its President, Mr. Roman Gudzyuk, to visit Operation CDO very soon. "Mr. Gudzyuk is very eager to accept Pearl Asian's first gold delivery, and is likewise keen on buying other metals such as copper, manganese, iron, and others. There are also plans for Mr. Gudzyuk to accompany our Preliminary Exploration Team in its ocular inspections of new mine sites, and we hope to show them the gold, copper, and manganese mines we are evaluating at present," stated Engr. Gary Gotanco, VP-Business Development & IRO.
Last but not the least, Pearl Asian is issuing this clarification on the issuance of stock dividends of Philippines Royal Oil & Alternative Energy Co., Inc. For every 100 common shares of PAIM held as of record date of February 18, 2007, shareholders will receive 1 share of Philippines Royal Oil & Alternative Energy Co., Inc. Ex-dividend date shall be announced once determined by NASD. The change in name from Philippines Gold Mining Corporation (Other OTC Symbol: PGMC) to Philippines Royal Oil & Alternative Energy Co., Inc. is ongoing, including its incorporation in the State of Wyoming, thus no symbol is available for the new company as of now. "Philippines Royal Oil & Alternative Energy Co. has good potential, as oil is present in the Philippines but is as yet largely untapped. In addition, the recent directive from US President Bush to cut the country's oil consumption by 20% in 10 years and mandating the shift to biofuels ensures a large biofuels market in the US. The Philippines has vast plantations of sugarcane-raw material for bioethanol, and coconut-which is a raw material for biodiesel. The Philippines can supply much of the US demand, so it's a perfect match," stated Engr. Gotanco who is concurrently President/CEO of Philippines Royal Oil & Alternative Energy Co., Inc.
