TWDL'S Legacy Rock Subsidiary Awarded Contract With NV Energy

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - September 21, 2010) -  Texas Wyoming Drilling, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: TWDL), today announced that it's recently acquired Legacy Rock Company has entered into a contract with NV Energy. NV Energy is the supplier of energy to customers in a 54,500-square-mile service territory in Nevada and northeastern California. The Company has already started shipping calcium carbonate to be used for erosion control in Pond Projects and Erosion Control Projects at NV Energy's Nevada Generation Plant. Legacy Rock has a stockpile of an estimated 300,000 tons of the mineral ready and waiting to be shipped for this project, future NVE projects, and to others for a wide variety of uses.

This use of calcium carbonate is unique because straw, excelsior (wood fiber) and coconut fiber are commonly used for erosion control until grass or other plants can take root. However, a covering such as calcium carbonate, which is essentially made from crushed rock, is better suited to do the job in arid regions as in the southwest.

As reported last month, TWDL recently acquired Legacy Rock, a diversified mineral and rock mining company that had gross sales of over $1 Million last year, and over $300,000 in the quarter ending June 30, 2010. The diversified resources being mined and sold through Legacy Rock include sand and gravel for highways throughout the area, including the beltway around Las Vegas. The Company also is a large supplier of rocks for landscaping and home exteriors, especially in upscale neighborhoods in the area. In Nevada and the surrounding states where irrigation is at a premium, the products offered by Legacy Rock are in high demand. Their clients include Lowe's, Walmart and Star Nurseries.

Watch for future press releases about the various natural resources being utilized for sale by TWDL, including water, gold and silver as well as the calcium carbonate, rocks, stones and gravel mentioned above.
