Vivakor Announces Extraction Results From the Thermal Vaporization Technology in Regards to Its Arizona Ore Bodies

HENDERSON, NV--(Marketwired - June 13, 2013) - Vivakor Inc. (PINKSHEETS: VIVK) announces that VivaVentures Precious Metals LLC has achieved an extraction yield of ten ounces of Gold equivalent metals per ton of ore processed using the Thermal Vaporization technology. These results come from the Arizona ore sites that VivaVentures Precious Metals acquired interest in last September. The gold equivalent include all PMGs and other precious metals in this calculation.

Matt Nicosia, CEO of the Company, stated, "The Company is astonished on the success of the Thermal Vaporization technology. Such extraction is consistent with the previous assays that have been performed on the claims sites and we are proud that this investment has come to such fruition. One thing has become clear -- this technology, when applied to the mining precious metals extraction industry, is a game changer. We look forward to continued success as these mineral bodies, and others, become time proven producing reserves thus allowing the company to create extreme value in this asset base, which we believe will lead to a much higher shareholder value. This is just the beginning of the value creation that comes from the VivaVentures Precious Metals Thermal Vaporization Technology. We have taken once extraction-less ore bodies, and now made them worth billions, if not trillions in current in-ground value. Our objective is to create such value through high yielding, low cost extraction, and this is happening currently due to the Thermal Vaporization Technology."
