Pavilion Energy Resources Texas Aluminum Smelter Wind Energy JV

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - November 9, 2009) - Pavilion Energy Resources, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: PVRE) is pleased to announce that its Texas Wind Power JV has proposed to buy or joint venture into a mothballed aluminum smelter in Texas, which previously produced $700 million per year of aluminum from imported alumina.

The refinery was recently closed due to the shortage of clean energy supplies. The JV proposes to either provide zero-emissions electricity to power the refinery as a third-party supplier, or alternatively to buy the refinery for a written down amount, and re-open it.

The Aluminum smelter could provide between 750 to 1,500MW of base-load demand for the JV's proposed wind farms on the South Texas coast.

The proposed smelter joint venture would produce $700 million per year of the world's greenest aluminum.

Job Creation

The re-opening of the aluminum smelter would create 1,000 direct Central Texas jobs and 10,000 indirect jobs in a region with high unemployment.

The proposed wind farms would create thousands more jobs in Corpus Christi and Brownsville, for the next 25 years.

The JV's next generation wind power turbine promises to make large amounts of zero-carbon electricity much cheaper than any other form of renewable energy. This development promises to transform the electric power industry and aluminum smelting business.
