Obama, Huckabee, Clinton, Rockefeller and Romney Support Coal-to-Liquid Fuel

    VANCOUVER, Jan. 8 /CNW/ - Silverado Green Fuel Inc. (Subsidiary of
Silverado Gold Mines Ltd. - Trading Symbols, OTC BB - SLGLF, FRANKFURT - SLGL)
: - Silverado Green Fuel Inc. is at the forefront of one of the U.S.'s highest
priorities in domestic energy supply and security, namely coal-to-liquid fuel.
    "The endorsement from most Presidential candidates and key U.S. political
figures, and the recent (Dec/07) U.S. Energy Bill's $2.2 billion in tax
incentives for clean coal technology applications are sure signs that
Silverado is in the right place, and at the right time," states Garry Anselmo,
Silverado's President and CEO. "Silverado Green Fuel uses low rank coal.
America has centuries of domestic supply of low rank coal, an underutilized
energy resource." The company has a proven process to produce green fuel,
equivalent to crude oil, but commercially created without any CO(2) or harmful
environmental emissions in the production process. "And at less than one fifth
the cost of crude oil," he adds.
    "Achieving energy independence and significantly reducing greenhouse gas
emissions are two of the greatest challenges America faces. With the right
technological innovations, coal has the potential to be a cleaner burning,
domestic alternative to imported oil"......" "Moving forward, I believe we
should invest in coal-to-liquid fuels..." "...we must invest in clean coal
technologies that we can use at home and share with the world." - Barrack
    "We have to explore, we have to conserve, and we have to pursue all
avenues of alternative energy: nuclear, wind, solar, hydrogen, clean coal...."
"We need to develop an environmentally friendly use of coal."...."Coal - to -
liquid fuel can be a major industry." - Mike Huckabee
    "We will accelerate the production of advanced coal technology. Coal
currently provides 50% of our electricity in America, but it comes at a high
price in greenhouse gases and other pollutants. We need to accelerate the
development and deployment of technology that can safely capture and store
carbon dioxide emissions." - Hillary R. Clinton
    ".....I consider coal-to-liquid a "clean" technology."...."part of my
national energy plan would include federal funding for technology to convert
coal into liquid fuel." "We will invest as a nation in new sources of energy,
including clean coal." - Mitt Romney
    "The overwhelming support of the Senate sends a clear message. Coal
conversion is a technology worth investing in." - Jay Rockefeller
    A Silverado Green Fuel production facility can be established anywhere in
the world where there is a supply of low rank coal, combined with a need for
environmentally friendly and reasonably low cost, readily available energy.
Silverado Green Fuel Inc. is a world leader in low rank coal-to-liquid fuel
technology. Plans are underway for a $26 million Demonstration Plant in a
joint venture with the State of Mississippi.
    Silverado Green Fuel is commercially produced without releasing any
harmful emissions into the air. Initial production costs are estimated at
under US$15 per barrel, on an oil equivalent energy basis, compared to current
$90 - $100/barrel crude oil prices.
    Green Fuel can be used to power oil-fired power plants directly, or be
used as a feedstock for further processing to produce transportation fuels
(jet, diesel, gasoline), key agricultural compounds (fertilizers, synthetic
petrochemical feedstocks, urea), industrial products (oils, lubricants,
synthetics) and even consumer products (plastics, packaging, etc.). Silverado
Green Fuel can also be further processed to produce pure, clean hydrogen to
power fuel cell automobiles and electrical generation (power) plants.
