MCW Energy Group Marks Extraction Plant Progress as It Readies for Oil Sands Extraction Technology Testing Program in Asphalt Ridge, Utah

TORONTO--(Marketwired - Aug 27, 2013) - MCW Energy Group (TSX VENTURE: MCW) (MCW.V) ("MCW"), a Canadian holding company involved in fuel distribution and the creation of oil sands extraction technology, today announced progress of its ongoing fabrication and assembly programs of its first extraction unit which will be tested for commercial production viability on MCW's lease in Asphalt Ridge, Utah.

One of the most important components of MCW's closed-loop technology is the Pre-Mixing System which has been designed by MCW's engineering team and represents a segment of MCW's patent pending extraction process. It features an agitator which mixes the oil sands ore with benign solvents in order to create homogenized slurry prior to its entry into the extraction column. The moving parts of the agitator feature blades treated with a chemical-resistant coating, the shaft and a motor. This key component has been fabricated by Hayward & Gordon Inc., of Halton Hills, Ontario, Canada, a well-established manufacturer of pumps, mixers and strainers. This component has already passed Haywood & Gordon's rigid quality control testing and is scheduled for shipment to MCW's production site in Utah during the month of September, 2013.

MCW had originally planned to be well into the fabrication completion stages of its initial extraction plant in Utah by the end of July, but in order to ensure optimum mixing of the oil sands ore, which may include a wide range of consistency variations during processing, MCW added a specially-designed agitator system which is anticipated to speed up production and improve system efficiencies. MCW is preparing a series of informative press releases during the months of August and September, documenting its progress in the completion of its first extraction unit on its lease site in Asphalt Ridge, Utah. A sufficient amount of feedstock has already been prepared and is awaiting processing, once the unit has been assembled.
