Tao Minerals Inc. Announcing Initial Results from Work Program on Colombian Property

MEDELLIN, Colombia–April 27, 2006–Tao Minerals Ltd. (”Tao Minerals”) (OTCBB: TAOL): Mr. James A. Sikora, President of Tao Minerals, is pleased to announce initial results from the work program on its 100%-owned (via option) Golondrina gold and silver property in the mining district of Pasto, in the southwest part of the state of Colombia.

The initial Phase 1 program consisted of select surface samples of vein material from the property. A total of 114 samples were selected under the direction of Carlos Alberto Vera, Consulting Field Geologist on the Golondrina exploration program. This initial sampling program has produced gold assay results averaging 2.08 g/tonne with a minimum of 0.001 g/tonne and a maximum grade of 8.323 g/tonne.

Gold mineralization on the Golondrina property occurs in a series of sub-horizontal dipping (0 to 25 degrees) veins ranging from 5 to 50 cm in width. The veins are sub-parallel and “stacked” approximately 2 m apart. The gold mineralization is associated with milky white quartz veins which contain disseminated sulphides. These sulphides include pyrite, chalcopyrite (copper) and galena (lead). Most of the veins are located along the contact between the tonalite/quartz diorite intrusions and enclosing quartzites. A series of these subparallel veins have been traced vertically for 200 m.

Mr. Sikora states, “We are very pleased with the initial set of results. A follow-up trenching program is presently underway. Although assay results are not complete on this work, a visual examination of the vein material exposed is very encouraging.”

The content of this release has been reviewed and verified by the Company’s geological staff (which includes) Duncan Bain, P.Geo., a “Qualified Person” for the purpose of NI 43-101, Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects and field geologist Carlos Alberto Vera. Mr. Vera graduated from the National University in Medellin, Colombia, and received his Bachelor of Geology Engineer Degree in 1987. Mr. Vera also holds a Masters degree in Earth Sciences from the Eafit University in Medellin, Colombia. Mr. Vera has practised continuously as a mining geologist engaged in exploration and development of Colombian mining properties from 1987 until the present.

Mr. James A. Sikora, and the board of Tao Minerals Inc. are pleased to have access to the depth of geological experience provided by Mr. Duncan Bain, and Mr. Carlos Alberto Vera.

Budget Waste Accelerates Strategic Plan for Expansion to Address Demands of the Alberta Market

Tuesday, April 25th, 2006

BWI (Pink Sheets:BDWT), a premier full service waste hauling company in the Calgary area, has accelerated their strategic plan of expansion throughout Alberta to take advantage of the hot Alberta economy. With Canada being the largest supplier of foreign oil to the United States and most of that oil coming from Alberta, forecasters are projecting a buoyant outlook for the Alberta economy well into the next decade. Driven by the current development of the Alberta oil sands, the Alberta economy is anticipated to grow by 4.1% in 2006 and 3.5% in 2007. Combined with their current unemployment rate below 4.0%, the economy is drawing workers into Alberta at unprecedented rates. These factors have resulted in the Alberta building permits increasing by 38%, compared to the national average of 11.9%.

As a provider of waste removal to the construction industry, BWI is accelerating its strategic plans to capitalize on the vibrant Alberta economy. BWI is positioning itself to enter into the waste hauling markets in the major Alberta cities. It is anticipated that upon completion of the growth strategy within Alberta, BWI’s 2006 fiscal revenues are expected to increase by over 800% equating to approximately $10 million dollars in annual revenues. This will provide the strong financial base for the implementation of BWI’s growth into a national full solutions waste services company.
