ZEOX Enters Distribution Agreement for Europe and Middle East
Mr. LuVerne E.W. Hogg, President and CEO of ZEOX Corporation (The "Company" or "ZEOX") (TSX VENTURE: ZOX) is pleased to announce that the Company's wholly owned subsidiary ZEOX Mineral Materials Corp. ("ZMMC") has entered a Distribution Agreement covering Europe and the Middle East with Societe Mediterraneenne des Zeolithes SARL (SOMEZ), a French Company, located in Montpellier, France. SOMEZ is a European leader in the utilization of high performance specialty zeolites across a wide range of industries that include natural gas purification applications.
The Agreement has an initial term of 5 years and provides SOMEZ access to the high purity, high performance ZMMC product line that features the Company's rare species of zeolite known as Chabazite. Chabazite is a powerful industrial mineral well suited for use as a molecular sieve, catalyst and adsorbent for the petrochemical industry as well as the remediation of nuclear waste, contaminated water and air applications.
Under the Agreement ZMMC has received an initial order of 352,000 lbs (160,000 kg) of ZMM(R) LBC200 Chabazite. ZMMC can produce the ZMM(R) LBC 200 from both the White Cliffs Plant in Arizona or the Butte Plant in Montana. The ability to service large emerging markets has been created through the Company's investment in infrastructure development in 2007 and 2008 that has created the mining, production and distribution capability required to commercialize products globally.
For a more complete business and financial profile of the Company, management encourages interested parties to view the Company's documents posted on www.sedar.com.
On behalf of the Board of Directors
