TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - June 5, 2015) - Amana Copper Ltd. (CSE:AMA) ("Amana" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Company has entered into a letter agreement ("Agreement") with International Wastewater Systems ("IWS"), a world leader in state-of-the-art sewage heat recovery technology. The Agreement sets out a proposal by Amana to acquire 100% of the issued and outstanding common shares of IWS (the "Transaction") which would constitute a "major acquisition" for Amana under the policies of the Canadian Securities Exchange (CSE).

About IWS

Founded in 2010, IWS has designed, developed and deployed a patented method for extracting heat from raw sewage flows. IWS's innovative proprietary product, the Sewage SHARC ("SHARC") provides simple and direct heat exchange from untreated wastewater to provide the most energy-saving, cost-effective and environmentally-friendly solutions for heating, cooling and hot water for any buildings, residential or commercial.

The SHARC allows for tremendous energy and water savings by recapturing energy that would have otherwise been wasted down the drain. SHARC systems can handle a wide spectrum of applications including condominiums, hospitals and office buildings with the scope extending to energy districts and supplemental use on large geothermal installations. SHARC technology is custom tailored to building specifications and can be installed as new or retrofit applications.

Now installed in 6 locations in Canada, the longest serving SHARC system has been operating for over 5 years, delivering domestic hot water requirements to a 60 unit urban townhouse development, resulting in energy savings of 75.2% (Stantec Consulting Ltd., September 2012). Additional existing SHARC installations include a municipal wastewater treatment plant, a public theatre facility and various condominium projects.

Having proven the technical capabilities and economic efficiencies of the SHARC, IWS is establishing strategic partnerships globally to facilitate the deployment of the SHARC worldwide. IWS currently has a robust pipeline of projects across Europe and North America with recent purchase orders totaling approximately CAN $3.0 million.
