Plaintree Systems Inc announces the award of a second phase of a large mining stockpile cover contract in British Columbia, Canada



    OTTAWA, July 24 /CNW Telbec/ - Plaintree Systems Inc. (the "Company" or
"Plaintree") today announced that its steel division, Triodetic
(www.triodetic.com), has been awarded the second phase of a contract for the
engineering, supply and supervision of installation of two industrial mining
dome enclosures in British Columbia, Canada, from one of the world's largest
mining companies. The first phase of the contract, awarded to Triodetic on
October 3, 2007, was for one dome with a value of $2,100,000 CND that is now
nearing on-site completion.
    The second phase of the contract is for engineering, supply and
supervision of installation of 2 domes, having a value in excess of
$5 million CND. Plaintree expects that the first of the two additional domes
to be delivered in the 2008 calendar year and the second dome to be delivered
early during the 2009 calendar year.
    "Triodetic has over 40 years of experience as a major supplier of
industrial mining enclosures and this contract is an excellent example of
Triodetic's capabilities" said Plaintree CEO David Watson. "The domes are each
105 meters (345 feet) in diameter and are installed on working stockpiles.
Each one of these domes can accommodate a Boeing 787 Dreamliner - the world's
largest aircraft. It is projects like this that help us maintain the Triodetic
name as the "go to people" for large difficult mining structures". David
Watson also stated that: "This contract is an excellent example of the value
creation to Plaintree's shareholders that will now be achieved as a result of
the Triodetic and Hypernetics acquisitions earlier this year".
