SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - Nov 29, 2012) - Sunergy, Inc (the "Company") (PINKSHEETS: SNEY) is pleased to announce that it has secured an initial deposit on its $500,000 financing proposal for startup of the 2012-2013 Pampana river Dredging and Pilot Plant operation in Sierra Leone and dispatches personnel to commence operations.
We have budgeted $100,000 on operations in Sierra Leone through December 31, 2012 on our 140 sq. km. Pampana River gold and Ree's concession. During Q1 and Q2 of 2013 we have budgeted an additional $400,000 for the Pampana operation, to include a commercial scale pilot plant designed to separate the recoverable gold from magnetic separation and the recoverable zircon, titanium and other easily recoverable rare earths elements produced through the pilot plant operation. The Use of proceeds of the Budget is as follows:
BUDGETS / USE OF FUNDS
The following activities with budgeted costs are recommended to move the Pampana River Mining Concession toward commercial production.
FUNDS TO BE RAISED
Gold/ REE's Recovery Program With Commercial Pilot Plant Operation:
|Gold, REE's Dredge Operations
|Commercial Pilot Plant Purchase
|Operating and Permitting Costs to Operate the Pilot Plant
|Administrative and Overhead Costs
|Total To Be Raised
These funds are being raised through a combination of private placements for restricted shares, at a later date, favorable short term cash loans as we have done in the past and gold debentures given $1,700/oz. gold prices. This year's operations will generate new material recovered in this year's operations that will be added to our existing stockpile in preparation for Pilot Plant operations which will commence in Q1 2013. We intend to expand our stockpile significantly prior to start-up of the pilot plant in order to optimize operating efficiency for a better and more representative economic result. Cash flow should begin in Q1 and 2 of 2013 and grow over the balance of the operating season and into years 2-5. The company will also be developing resources through systematic sampling and testing along the river and its benches which will set the stage for potential off-take agreements for the REEs.
Gary Houck comments, "I am pleased that we are readying for operations in Sierra Leone with the financing available to generate cash flow from operations. We are sending our team, headed by Country Administrator Hans Strand and Garrett Hale, a Director of Sunergy's subsidiary in Sierra Leone. Mr. Wilfred Ullrich, our head of dredging operations has prepared for the startup of continuous operations for the 2012-2013 mining season, now that the rains have subsided and operations will commence in the next 2-3 weeks. We are confident the balance of funds will follow."
Company President, CFO Larry Bigler, CPA comments: "We are starting our own operations in Sierra Leone and Gary Houck has been instrumental in securing the proposed required financing to insure the success of this year's campaign. We are undertaking additional testing to further the design and commissioning of the pilot plant which will enable us to produce cash flow. In addition, we have begun preliminary discussions with a substantial alluvial mining group with a 300-500ton/hour processing capability in Ghana to determine if we can put a Joint Venture together on our Ghana Concession. We are sending personnel to Ghana as well to further this discussion."
