Phoenix Associates Division, Murphy Sand & Gravel, Commits to 24 Hr/Day, 6 Day/Week Mining Operation

Intense Demand for Gravel & Sand Drives Growth at MS&G's Pearl River, Louisiana Mine; Five Mining Sites to Be Operational Within Three Months

MADISONVILLE, LA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 6, 2007 -- Phoenix Associates Land Syndicate (Phoenix) (PINKSHEETS: PBLS) today announced that the Murphy Sand & Gravel Division of Phoenix (MS&G) will go to a 24 hour per day, 6 day per week sand and gravel operating schedule as of March 2007.

Paul Alonzo, Chairman and CEO of Phoenix, stated, "Demand is so intense for our gravel and sand products, that with the Cherokee Environmental agreement commencing deliveries, we must increase the production volume from the MS&G mine immediately. To meet our growing production demands we will be continuing to bring in and install new equipment to provide for additional production sites at the mine."

MS&G currently has two operational sites producing sand and gravel products. In line with plans to significantly expand production capacity to keep up with demand, a new 14x12 dredge is to arrive on or about Tuesday, March 6th. Once this new dredge is connected to a screening plant, MS&G will have three operational production lines. The Company's plans call for five operating sites at the mine to be producing sand and gravel products within 60-90 days.

Mr. Alonzo added, "Upon bringing our production operation up to five production sites over the next two to three months, we will then be able to take on contracts for our gravel and sand products from a number of new customers that we are not now able to handle."

Additionally, Phoenix management has decided to install a web cam at the MS&G site. The web cam will be linked to the Phoenix web site so that shareholders will be able to view ongoing operations and future expansion activities at the Pearl River mine site. Shareholders will be informed once this web cam is operational.
