Press Release Source: Sunergy Inc. On Monday May 13, 2013
SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - 05/13/2013) - Sunergy, Inc (the
- News) is pleased to announce that Garrett Hale, President, CEO has returned from his recent trip to Sierra Leone where he visited and evaluated our facilities, operations and personnel. During this visit he also reviewed all our testing sites and initiated a re-testing program under the supervision of a geologist which will result in assays and mineralogical information that will qualify for publication in a CNI 43-101 compliant report establishing resources and reserves. His mission was also to advance our ongoing operations on the Company's Pampana River Rare Earths/ Gold recovery project and other potential operations currently under review.
Garrett comments: "I had a very productive trip to Sierra Leone. In addition to visiting and reviewing all aspects of our current ongoing Pampana River exploration operations, I had the opportunity to visit other projects that we have been studying as well. I am impressed with our secure compound facility in Magbruka and the dredging operations underway in the river. I was on the dredges and spent time observing all aspects of the recovery operations. I saw visible gold, huge amounts of rare earths in the black sands and am excited about the future economic viability of our operations. Sunergy has worked diligently this past year to put professional management in place and to identify and replace operational inefficiencies. I am confident that this has been accomplished and that our Company's objectives to develop cash flow from operations on our Pampana river Project and other potential operations is readily achievable. All the historical work has led us now to the point that we are ready to move to the next level which is the establishment of sustainable cash flow."
He adds; "I also enjoyed the opportunity to meet with the Minerals Commission personnel, the Registrar of Corporations and other administrative departments and personnel and took the opportunity to introduce myself and Sunergy at every level. We enjoy great support for our development efforts in Sierra Leone and are being encouraged to continue our efforts to become a much larger operator in their country. We received our $1,200/ ton from the sale of 27.5 tons of black sands in December and these funds have been being used to fund our ongoing exploration operations and facilities in Sierra Leone. We are also pursuing a new capital development program that raises from $500,000 to $10,000,000 in three phases. I now have complete confidence that our proposed Pilot Plant level operation will be successful and lead to the development of 3 large commercial production plants that will feed a central commercial processing facility. We can grow our operation to produce and process over 2,000 tons of concentrates/month. More details will follow."
In conclusion; "This trip for me confirmed the original vision that I had when we first started as Allied Mining and Supply LTD in 2009. Like a caterpillar in a cocoon we are now ready to emerge as a beautiful large butterfly, as it is time to take all the past years of discoveries and put them to work. We will find the capital to do this essential work and we will do it without severely diluting our common shareholders. Our current shareholders are the ones who have taken the greatest risk and almost watched us drift down the river. The drifting is over, we are clear and have the right team in place for success. I look forward to returning to Sierra Leone shortly to continue our efforts to achieve remarkable growth for our shareholders."
Wilfred Ullrich, Pampana Operations Manager says; "Garrett's visit was a very important one. We have been working hard to implement the operational changes required and when he arrived he immediately was up to speed with both operations and our local culture. We are very happy with all the new changes and I am really excited to be part of the new Sunergy operating team. Garrett is truly committed to the future of Sunergy here in Sierra Leone, which has convinced me to be willing to work for both wages and shares as an owner of the Company. We welcome Garrett's return soon and all enjoy working with him."
Other potential operations that offer immediate cash flow opportunities are available to us at this time and we are looking to add wherever possible subject to capital budgeted for those operations. We cannot go into details at this time due to confidentiality constraints but will share relevant information when available.
There will be further discussion of both our existing operations and our plans for all seasons operations that are underway at this time.
