Alto Group Holdings Announces Signed LOI to Joint Venture With the Royal Coal Corporation

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - November 17, 2010) - Alto Group Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB: ALTO) ("Alto Group" or the "Company"), an innovative mining and commodities trade company headquartered in New York, announces a signed LOI to Joint Venture with the Royal Coal Corporation.

Management recently completed a due diligence trip to Hazard County, Kentucky to visit the Royal Coal Corporation's current production operations in an effort to explore creating a strategic alliance with additional junior mining companies that are currently in production domestically. The Royal Coal Corporation is currently producing approximately 480,000 tons per year of coal quality that averages 12,500 btu, less than 1.2% sulfur, 11% or less ash. The SID project has 1.6 million permitted tons with 3.3 million recoverable tons in proven or probable category on 850 acres, and 13+ million tons potentially available-for-lease on adjacent property. All of the coal produced can be train-loaded at Royal Coal's subleased Charlene, 4-hour fast-load facility, trucked or barged directly to customers. 

Alto Group Holdings has signed an LOI to participate in 50% of all revenues generated under a proposed SID property Joint Venture with $5,000,000 as the total proposed financing to expand Royal Coal's existing production efforts and an additional 480,000 tons per year.

Management continues to follow its aggressive consolidation plan to diversify our existing mining portfolio on a domestic and international level to add shareholder value.
