Ensurge Announces Preliminary Corporate Agreement with Brazilian Based Gold Mine
SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 14 /PRNewswire/ — Ensurge, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: ESGI) announces the preliminary agreement with Mineracao Nova Esperanca, a Brazilian based gold mine company.
Ensurge, Inc. is pleased to announce the completion of a Preliminary Corporate Agreement with Mineracao Nova Esperanca (New Hope Mining Company) or NME, of Pocone, Mato Grosso, Brazil. Under provisions of this Agreement, Ensurge will provide technology and the capital equipment necessary to recover gold from tailings ponds created by NME over the past 20 years as well as recover gold from newly created process mill tailings. Also under terms of the Agreement, longer term, Ensurge will undertake an overall mineral assessment of the entire NME mining tenement, of which only about 10% has been explored to date.
Ensurge has previously conducted preliminary due diligence and, with the assistance of Amazon GeoServices, a Belo Horizonte, Brazil geological and mining engineering consulting company, completed a preliminary geological and technology assessment.
Under terms of the Agreement, Ensurge will fund an Engineering Scoping Study, to be completed by Amazon GeoServices. Upon successful completion of this study, Ensurge will then install the equipment recommended by the Engineering Scoping Study with the intent of recovering gold from the existing tailings ponds, as well as newly created tailings from the existing processing mill.
In exchange for providing the technological assessment of the Engineering Scoping Study and for providing 100% of the capital costs to construct the tailings processing facility, Ensurge will receive 50% of the after tax profit from the operation of that facility.
In addition, Ensurge will be obligated to make certain progress and milestone payments some of which are dependent upon the amount of gold proven to be in the tailings.
Ensurge believes that the Engineering Scoping Study will be completed in 90 days, and if the study indicates that construction of the tailings processing facility is technologically and economically viable, construction, completion and start-up of the tailings processing facility can be completed in an additional 6-9 months.
Concerning this Agreement, Jordan Estra, President and Chief Executive Officer of Ensurge said, “Ensurge is very excited about the opportunity to work with Mineracao Nova Esperanca, a long established and leading gold mining company in the Pocone region of Brazil. Pocone anchors the southern end of the 100 kilometer long gold belt that extends northward from Pocone to Cuiaba in Mato Grosso, Brazil.
This Agreement is the first, of what we expect will be many, such agreements with gold mining companies in Brazil as we implement our strategy of providing technology and capital to existing gold mining operations to improve and expand their operations. The Campos Family, multi-generational owners and operators of MNE are leaders in their region, not only in mining of gold, but also in community affairs. We believe we have found the perfect partner to embark upon our Brazilian gold strategy.”
