CAMERON PARK, Calif., April 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Steele Resources Corporation (the "Company", "SRC") (OTCBB: SELR) reported today that it has executed formal documents for the acquisition of the Billali Gold and Silver Mine located in the Steeple Rock mining district in western New Mexico. The Billali Gold and Silver Mine is located adjacent to Santa Fe Gold's Summit Mine, which is a currently producing gold and silver mine. The ore reserves at the Summit Mine are reported by Santa Fe Gold to average 10.78 ounces per ton silver and 0.143 ounces per ton gold (0.35 ounces per ton gold equivalent).
CEO Scott Dockter stated, "SRC is now working to complete the transfer of the existing mine permit into the Company's name and begin development of the new mine workings. After a brief ramp up period, the Billali Gold and Silver mine is forecasted to operate at a rate of 200 tons per day. The total production values will be determined once the formal mine plan has been approved and financing is completed."
As part of its expedited mining effort, the mining will be subcontracted to White Pine Mining, which has been instrumental in the development of the mine plan. White Pine Mining has more than 30 years of operational experience and has laid out a very aggressive development plan which the Company has reviewed and accepted. SRC is working to close on $5M in debt financing that will finance the mining operation.
The operation is fully permitted in the state of New Mexico, although SRC will likely need to invest time and effort into ensuring the existing mining operation complies with all local, federal, and MSHA regulations before operation.
