Plateau Mineral Development, Inc. Announces Completion of Station Design and Commencement of Construction

WINSTON-SALEM, NC--(Marketwire - November 21, 2008) - Plateau Mineral Development, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: PMDP), along with its partner, Plateau Mineral Development LLC, is pleased to announce that the gas compressor-stripper station design has been completed. The lead-time for delivering the initial gas production should be a mere six weeks away and will rely upon the delivery of the instrumentation package from SPECTRA Energy.

PMD representatives met with the construction supervisor last week and approved the work plan for construction to commence. Materials were delivered on Thursday, November 6th with a planned completion date of Saturday, November 25, 2008.

Preparations have also been made for the delivery and installation of the stripper plant that will remove propane and other distillates from the gas stream prior to delivery into the main gas pipeline. Completion is estimated to be about six weeks from the end of October. This procedure will allow PMD to make its initial production test run.

Robert Matthews, President of Plateau Mineral Development, states, "The start of construction on the PMD Pipeline Compressor Station is a long-awaited process. We are anxiously awaiting the initial production test run which we expect will be a great success."
