Bullion Sees Profitability for Fiscal Quarter
Bullion Monarch Mining, Inc. (OTCBB: BULM), a natural resource company owning gold, silver and oil shale mining interests in Utah and Nevada, announced earnings of $422,019 or $0.01 per share for its fiscal quarter ending July 30, 2008, as filed with the SEC on Form 10-Q. The Company has chosen to continue self-funding of its oil shale technology subsidiary, EnShale, Inc., which makes Bullion's final positive bottom line more significant.
Bullion reported royalty revenues from its gold mining-related operations of $1,071,160 for the three-month period ended July 31, 2008, versus $320,057 for the same period in the prior fiscal year - over a 30% gain. Conversely, the Company reported an increase of $567,683 in general, administrative and research and development costs for the same periods, again due primarily to EnShale's demonstration plant pegged for a December 2008 completion.
Mr. R. Don Morris, President and CEO, stated, "Similar to our financials as reported for fiscal year-end April 30, 2008, Bullion again has benefited significantly from the increase in our gold mining royalty income, aiding us in reporting positive bottom line earnings while allowing for our projected, timely development of EnShale's technology to bring forth sweet crude from the underground mining of oil shale in an economically and environmentally positive method from our lands leased from the State of Utah. All in all, we are looking forward to offering our shareholders continued positive announcements, quarter by quarter, as related to all of our operations - gold and silver to oil shale and beyond."
