Two ActiveMine(TM) installations to proceed next week in wake of full MSHA approvals

    TSX-V: ACT

    -   All previously announced purchase orders are no longer conditional
    -   Volume manufacturing of ActiveMine Nodes has begun

    TORONTO, April 30 /CNW/ - Active Control Technology Inc. (TSX-V:ACT)
today announced that it will install ActiveMine(TM) systems at two underground
coal mines beginning next week. The installations were cleared to proceed as a
result of the recent U.S. Federal Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA)
full approval of ActiveMine, the premier voice communications and tracking
system for mines, on April 22, 2009.
    The scheduled installations are for coal mines in Illinois and Kentucky
that had previously signed purchase orders contingent on final MSHA approvals.
In addition, all previously announced purchase orders for ActiveMine are no
longer conditional and roll-out can now proceed. Accordingly, ACT has launched
its contract manufacturing program and will build several hundred ActiveMine
Nodes over the coming months.
    "Final MSHA approvals have cleared the way for our customers to obtain
the operational and safety benefits of ActiveMine, and for our company to earn
revenue from previously booked sales," said Steve Barrett, President and CEO,
Active Control.
    The MINER Act requires that each of the approximately 650 underground
coal mines in the U.S. submit mine safety plans that include provisions for
wireless two-way communication and electronic tracking, by June 15, 2009.
