Nevada Organic Phosphate Inc. (“NOP” or the “Company”, formerly named Silver Eagle Mines Inc.) (CSE: NOP), a Nevada-based company engaged in the exploration for organic, sedimentary raw rock phosphate, is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Marco Montecinos as Project Manager to lead NOP’s development program at its Murdock Mountain property.
Mr. Montecinos has over 38 years of experience in mineral exploration and business development projects in the Americas and possesses considerable expertise and knowledge of the phosphate rich bed where NOP is engaged.
Marco is currently president of Tigren, Inc., a Nevada-based exploration services company, which has provided technical services to the mining industry for 28 years
“Mr. Montecinos originally identified the Murdock Mountain phosphate project that now is the central focus of NOP’s exploration” stated Robin Dow, Chief Executive Officer of NOP. “He is liaising closely with the Bureau of Land Management as NOP progresses through the approval process to receive an exploration permit. This process has required extensive biological and cultural studies, conducted by Westland Engineering and Environmental Services (formerly EM Strategies) of Reno, Nevada. It is expected that the final studies will be completed once the snow cover melts. The winter snowpack was extremely heavy in the area last winter.
“We are very excited to take these important next steps with Marco fully engaged,” added Dow. “I am pleased to have the opportunity to oversee the development efforts at this highly prospective property,” stated Montecinos. “It is clear that phosphate demand is buoyant, in part because phosphate is an imperative ingredient in the organic food chain. Phosphate supply is subject to an array of geo-political risks that enhance the attractiveness of a reliable domestic source of phosphate supply.”
“This property, which is near surface and is believed to be very low in contaminants, is potentially positioned to provide a low-cost source of supply in a market in need of production,” added Montecinos. “I look forward to our efforts to explore and develop a production plan that meets the opportunity in front of us.”
The Murdock Mountain phosphoric bed lies 6 miles from the village of Montello, in northeastern Nevada, at an elevation of approximately 7,000 feet.
Nevada Organic Phosphate Inc.
NOP is a junior exploration company with an organic sedimentary raw rock phosphate bed, 8.25 kilometers long, in northeast Nevada. This is believed to be the only known organic sedimentary phosphate project in North America. It is situated close to the main highway to Montello/Elko, Nevada, and near the rail head to California.
