Vivakor Announces Completion of Precious Metal Processing Unit Through Its VivaVentures Precious Metals Division

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - Feb 5, 2013) - Vivakor Inc. (PINKSHEETS: VIVK) Announced today that VivaVentures Precious Metals has completed its first production extraction unit. The unit now enters into the Quality Control phase and is expected to be employed to full production before month end. This unit extracts precious metals through a proprietary vaporization process and is unique to VivaVentures Precious Metals. The Vaporization Technology not only processes precious metals with an astounding extraction yield, it also applies to rare earths as well. The Company projects each Unit to have an extraction capacity of 125 ounces of Gold (Au) per month, with the ore content from its existing claims. Other PMGs (Platinum Metal Groups) are also extracted from these units as well.

CEO and Chairman Matt Nicosia added, "The Company is pleased to announce the completion of this Unit, as it was completed ahead of schedule and accomplishes the objective requiring production and asset generation within six months of investment. As the unit comes in full production toward the end of this month, we expect to derive a significant change in asset classification as the in-ground assets become production reserves. Based on the success of these units, and the ability to monetize the reserves, the company has put a plan together that will include manufacturing of four to twelve units this year. Such production will allow the company to turn all of its in-ground reserves into producing reserves. This is an exciting time for the company as the VivaVentures Precious Metals asset becomes a significant player in the precious metals market. With the ongoing monetary instability we project the continued increase in precious metals, and rare earth values, thus increasing shareholder value for Vivakor Inc."
