American Apparel, Inc. (APP) Launches Online Store in Hong Kong

Friday, April 27th, 2012

On Thursday, Los Angeles-based clothing manufacturer American Apparel announced that it has launched a new online store that will service Hong Kong. The regional web store will be the company’s first direct e-commerce portal for its customers in Hong Kong. The new website is located at store.americanapparel.com.hk. Prior to the launch of this new site, customers shopped through the company’s international e-commerce store. Over time, Hong Kong had become the highest-performing international region without its own dedicated site.

In creating the new web store, the company will enhance its ability to serve consumers in the region in a number of new ways. To begin with, the site will accept orders placed in Hong Kong dollars. It will also allow for localization based on Hong Kong’s seasonal patterns and its schedule of holidays. While orders will still be fulfilled from the company’s Los Angeles-based factory, the move to the new store will decrease shipping costs for Hong Kong shoppers by $10 USD and will provide even better and timelier customer service.

Dov Charney, American Apparel founder and CEO, remarked, “Hong Kong is one of the most exciting regions in the world to run a business and we’re proud to expand our presence in the area. The parallels between American Apparel and Hong Kong itself–both founded on a bedrock of capitalism and free trade–are obvious and I think they’ll only help us in our exploration of this vibrant market.”

“We’re thrilled to offer our fans in Hong Kong their own local web store. We saw a fantastic opportunity to better serve our current clientele and hone our message to the region’s potential new customers,” added Christina Naetscher, web director for American Apparel.

White Mountain Titanium Corp. (WMTM) Applies for License to Advance Planned Desalination Plant, Provides Project Updates

Thursday, April 26th, 2012

White Mountain Titanium Corp., an exploration-stage company engaged in titanium deposits and reserves, today announced it has applied for an access license to draw sea water for a planned desalination plant, which will provide industrial and potable water to the Cerro Blanco project, and possibly to other users in the region.

The company currently is conducting process and design engineering work for the planned desalination plant, which will be incorporated into the final project engineering design and Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for submission to the Chilean mining authorities.

White Mountain said it has completed a ground geophysics study to assist exploration personnel to site and orient drill holes planned for the upcoming Las Carolinas and La Cantera drill program; to identify new exploration targets; and to assist engineering personnel as they work to locate the crusher, process plant, waste dumps, tailings facility, and site infrastructure away from mineralized areas.

The company has established a “footprint” for final engineering design purposes and identified two new exploration target areas. In addition, White Mountain said it has received all necessary permits to undertake the drilling program.

White Mountain concluded with assurance that it continues to monitor company-funded research being undertaken on the Chinuka Process at the University of Cambridge, and noted optimistic titanium market outlook.

“The company continues to advance the Cerro Blanco project to a final feasibility study stage and, at the same time, advance research on the Chinuka Process. All of this is taking place at a time when the market and outlook for titanium feedstock prices remains buoyant,” Brian Flower, White Mountain’s executive chairman stated in the press release.

Pershing Gold Corp. (PGLC) Reports Drilling/Geophysical Survey Data for Red Rock Gold Property in Nevada

Thursday, April 26th, 2012

Pershing Gold is a young gold explorer with an already excellent acreage footprint in northwestern Nevada via their Relief Canyon Gold Project, North Battle Mountain site, and the Red Rock property in Lander County, upon the last of which the company reported on today, offering comprehensive results from their 2011 exploration program, with emphasis on the geophysical survey/drilling data. The best intercept was 10 feet grading 1.23 gpt Au (5 feet at 2.18 gpt center).

Director of Exploration for PGLC, Art Leger, explained that the 2011 programs were designed to further define a Carlin-type mineralization deposit at depth and that he was pleased with the drilling/survey results, which offer very favorable indicators, especially in the context of the Controlled Source Audio Magneto-Telluric (CSAMT) survey data. Drilling has identified good indicators of mineralization and the CSAMT geophysical data has helped to quantify the mapping, giving the PGLC teams a good picture of what to expect, with obvious zones of structural preparation to focus on.

Here’s an overview of relevant 2011 data from drilling/surveying at the Red Rock Mineral Prospect:

– Some 5,380 acres in the sweet spot between two of Nevada’s most prolific gold trends (Battle Mountain-Eureka and Rabbit Creek) affords multiple targets

– 67 new lode claims located and now targeted for further mapping/sampling in anticipation of future drilling

– Some 10,426 feet of combined core/reverse circulation drilling across 15 rotary and core holes (drill assays done by ALS Minerals, down in Reno)

– All holes returned intersections of 0.050 g/t Au or higher with RRC-11-15 being the pick of the litter at 10 feet grading 1.23 gpt Au (internally, 5 feet at 2.18 gpt also recorded)

CSAMT wrapped with the final run in Dec of 2011 and helped define the complex structural zone mapped in the central target area, including a previously un-quantified series of complex, north/south-trending fault structures (huge indicator and very typical of Carlin-type mineralization in the Battle Mountain- Eureka trend). These high-angle faults intersect the Caetano Graben fault zone and the underlying geology/geochemistry is being interpreted by PGLC as a classic, potentially large tonnage Carlin-type gold system at depth leaking mineralizing fluids.

With what are essentially two potentially productive structural targets, one fault cutting the east side of the property on the north rim of the Caetano Caldera (just 1.3 miles northwest of the Horse Mountain gold prospect hosted in that lower, approaching Devonian-age carbonate strata), and one in the west on the edge of the Reese River Valley (just 11.2 miles southeast of the legendary Cove-McCoy gold mine).

The nexus is a gravity high believed to represent altered rocks at depth and extant soil and rock samples, combined with the CSAMT geophysical surveys offers the view that we have a block that has been pushed up, bringing much lower strata (Silurian/Devonian-age), like the proven gold host rock of the Roberts Mountains Formation (evident in multiple Carlin-type deposits) within striking distance.

Core log data offers a solid portrait, with anomalous gold amid salient levels of arsenic, mercury, thallium, and tellurium correlating directly with the gold intervals, as well as the kind of typical sooty carbon alteration, prominent quartz veining, and rich pyrite quantities that are a hallmark of upper-layer Carlin-type mineralization found throughout geological region.

President and CEO of PGLC, Stephen Alfers, indicated that the company was in ongoing work to secure arrangements whereby a significant interest in Red Rock can be maintained, while a third party moves the development of the property forward. Alfers underscored the impressive geological address of the property and was clearly eager to get started implementing advanced recovery technologies to this under-explored region of Nevada.

Complete drill results, as well as updated information, will be made available via the Pershing Gold website located at: www.PershingGold.com

Independence Resources Plc (SNKTY) Acquires 70% of Veteran Mining Contractor/Trainer in an Industry Plagued by Lack of Experienced Miners

Wednesday, April 25th, 2012

Independence Resources, which moved into the mineral/natural resources sector back in 2010 and has since aggressively assembled a solid project footprint focused largely on their Iron Creek project (copper-cobalt with an additional gold target) in Idaho (near the town of Salmon) and the Gray Eagle Mine project (copper and gold) up in Northern California, reported the acquisition today of 70% of eminent, Pacific Northwest veteran mining shop, Coeur d’Alene Mine Contracting LLC (CDA Mine Contracting).

SNKTY will issue 2M shares of common stock in conjunction with the acquisition, paying $200k in cash for the transaction, and obtaining 100% ownership of some highly prospective silver/gold property in Lemhi County, Idaho (42 mining claims) which will extend the company’s already strong land position there.

CDA Mine Contracting has developed an extremely powerful hands-on training model for bringing personnel to the peak of capability, an established reputation for a continually demonstrated ability to attract/retain highly skilled miners, and most importantly, brilliant leadership. You see, CDA has Jeff Lambert and Steve Ivie at the helm as its two principal owners, men who have spent over 24 years in the trenches of the underground hard rock mining sector developing the kind of experiential knowledge that only such activities can produce.

Lambert and Ivie both climbed the ladder, working their way up through the ranks in different positions back at Sunshine Mine in 1988 and onwards. Years spent as lead miners in some of the deepest, most challenging hard rock mines throughout North America has forged the kind of logistical intelligence, tactile knowledge, and systems level experience required to help turn out some of today’s best miners, miners who are ideally suited to working in precisely the kind of difficult environments this work calls for.

In fact, Lambert and Ivie started the mine contracting company which grew into United Mine Services, now a part of United Silver (Toronto listed public company) and a key factor in that company’s evolution/success. CDA is able to grow through training new personnel and improving the skill level of already skilled miners, making it a one-stop-shop for resource developers that need to move development/production forward.

CEO of SNKTY, John Ryan, emphasized this vast experience when praising CDA’s owners, underscoring the meticulous approach to ensuring productivity and safety applied by CDA, as well as their circumspect compliance with mining safety laws/regulations.

Mr. Ryan explained the dynamics of the mining industry to illustrate, noting the significant shortfall in skilled mining personnel that continues to plague the industry, resulting in major mining companies often failing to fulfill contract requirements due to a lack of experienced miners. Ryan pointed to the elephant in the room, the fact that companies have more work than miners to do it.

These fundamental reasons make the deal very attractive to SNKTY and Mr. Ryan expressed great confidence in the ability of CDA to bring substantial, steady, highly profitable near-term revenue to SNKTY, while ensuring optimum safety (something very important to both John Ryan and the SNKTY Board)

Mr. Ryan indicated that this majority stake of 70%, at any earlier stage, in what is destined to become one of North America’s premier underground mine contracting service companies, combined with the improved acreage footprint in Idaho (that will strengthen the company’s existing Iron Creek project), is a big win for SNKTY, as many junior mining companies never even get to the stage of producing revenue.

Iron Creek has copper-cobalt reserves of some 10M tons at 2% copper equivalent (intercepts up to 25ft grading 5.54% copper and 0.19% cobalt), with a 1k foot by 400 foot gold target (3.85 opt in some rock chip/soil samples), high-grade underground cobalt deposit of around 1M tons (at 0.61% cobalt and 0.3% copper – 4.1% copper equivalent). With an extensive drilling profile and good historic guidelines, this 100% owned (no royalties and some patented mining claims) acreage, in combination with the new land obtained in today’s acquisition, as well as the Gray Eagle Mine project, should give CDA plenty to sink their teeth into.
