- A standstill period is now in effect until January 31, 2009, with the option of Silver Recycling to extend further to March 31, 2009.

The parties will endeavour to negotiate a binding definitive agreement while Silver Recycling completes its due diligence investigation. Silver Recycling will be advancing a non-refundable deposit in the amount of US$50,000, which shall be credited to the Purchase Price.

Completion of the transaction contemplated in the LOI is subject to customary conditions for this type of transaction, including satisfactory due diligence investigation, satisfactory results of a Phase 1 Environmental audit, completion of necessary financing to fund the cash portion of the Purchase Price and Performance Payment (if applicable), settlement of employment agreements with key employees of the target, receipt of all necessary corporate approvals of Silver Recycling, and all requisite regulatory and any other required approvals.

Adding this location to the business we own in Pennsylvania and our other acquisition in process will allow the consolidated company to recycle and produce over 8 million ounces of silver annually. The future consolidation of these three operations gives us a solid platform for future organic and opportunistic growth."
