CHLORIDE, AZ, March 8, 2012 /CNW/ - Hondo Minerals Corporation (OTCBB: HMNC.OB) announced today that it has begun using its proprietary E-Leach extraction technology to evaluate several mining companies resources around the world.
These companies are furnishing to Hondo samples for testing and evaluation using Hondo's technology due to the recent proven successes experienced from the extractions of gold and silver done at the Tennessee Mine. Agreements have been executed for Hondo to begin testing on the companies mining material. The intent of Hondo and all interested companies is to joint venture or license the E-Leach technology to extract precious and base metals. The need for extraction is not just gold, silver or platinates but also copper and other highly commercial base metals. Hondo intends to supply a full suite of E-Leach based technology solutions to potential partners, and generate revenue through licensing fees, royalties or joint venture arrangements from our industry partners.
The Initial executed agreements represent the first success in the company's expanded business model, which contemplates supplying its proprietary extraction technology to mine operators under joint ventures or licensing arrangements. To date, E-Leach has only been used at Hondo's flagship property, the Old Tennessee Mine in Chloride, Arizona.
Bill Miertschin, Chairman and CEO of Hondo commented, "These opportunities mark the first time that Hondo's exclusive E-leach technology may be used by other mine operators. While we remain focused on our project in Chloride, the opportunity to diversify our revenue stream by using E-leach on other mining projects is another step in our growth as a company."
