TWDL Begins Gold Mining at Blue Jacket Mine

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - Jun 30, 2011) - Texas Wyoming Drilling, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: TWDL) reports that their wholly owned subsidiary, Legacy Rock, has begun processing gold and other ores at their Blue Jacket Mine in Nelson, NV. Tests have shown that ore already mined from this site will yield in excess of 5,000 ounces of gold, plus silver and other precious metals. The processing is well underway and a large stockpile is ready to go to the final phase of the recovery process.

Legacy Rock has extracted the ores by blasting the rock into smaller pieces, followed by crushing and grinding it into a sand-like texture. They have also established their own laboratory and are planning to build a processing plant on their property. That will enable them to step from the recovery process to the production process where the metals are separated and prepared to go to market.

Scott Whipple, President and Chief Operating Officer of Legacy Rock, says, "We're delighted to have received favorable assays on the gold and other ores at the Blue Jacket Mine. Now that we have gone through the preparatory steps, we're excited to be moving forward with the final phase of the recovery process."
