Default Highbank- (TSX VENTURE: HBK) Swamp Point North Site and Load-Out Update

Highbank- (TSX VENTURE: HBK) Swamp Point North Site and Load-Out Update




VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - October 06, 2014) - Highbank Resources Ltd. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: HBK) (FRANKFURT: V70).

President, Victor N. Bryant is pleased to announce:

Swamp Point North Barge loading Facility...

The piling work for the load-out conveyor system is now complete. A total of 24 pilings have been installed with excellent penetration in compacted gravel to average depths of 55 - 65 feet. All pile caps of one inch thick steel have been installed to hold each set of pilings together. The work was completed several days ahead of schedule. Driving of only one piling caused some difficulty when a large boulder was encountered. The piling was re-located and driven without further difficulty.

The Foresight Innovations Ltd. construction crew is now assisting with assembly of the prefabricated conveyor sections and installation on the pilings. Walkways connecting the mooring dolphins will be installed later this week and the conveyor belt and drive installed. A concrete base is being constructed at the feed end of the conveyor to support the aggregate receiving hopper for the load-out system.

Camp and Mine Site Development...

In the mine site area, stripping of the sand/silt layer immediately above the gravel deposit is progressing. Heavy rainfall has slowed this activity; however, this has not prevented flat areas for location of the crushing, washing and screening equipment from being prepared. Weather permitting; Highbank continues to work toward having aggregate ready for shipment in late October/early November 2014. Watch for photo updates and an updated power point presentation on our website at http://www.highbankresources.com

LNG taxation...

Mr. Bryant further comments. As per our September 30, 2014 news release we stated, "The British Columbia Government will conclude negotiations and set forward a fair Liquefied Natural Gas ('LNG') tax regime". As reported in the Vancouver Sun on Thursday, October 2, 2014 titled 'Province signals reductions in planned LNG project taxes'. The governing Liberals return to the legislature on Monday and will table the final tax legislation in the week of October 20, 2014, said Finance Minister Mike de Jong. "These are sizable investments with a lot at stake for the citizens of B.C., and the proponents and we want to get it right," de Jong said.

Default Highbank (TSX VENTURE: HBK) Projects $11 Million Pre-Tax Profit for Swamp Point North

Highbank (TSX VENTURE: HBK) Projects $11 Million Pre-Tax Profit for Swamp Point North ("SPN") Project




VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - October 14, 2014) - Highbank Resources Ltd. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: HBK) (FRANKFURT: V7O).

Vic Bryant, CEO/President, comments… "Development at Highbank's SPN operation is progressing well on schedule. I had the pleasure of seeing the first span of the conveyor system being lifted into place on the pilings of the barge loading facility on my October 7, 2014 site inspection". (1)

The site camp is fully functional and is being prepared for year round occupation. On October 9 th, 2014, the fourth barge arrived at SPN, delivering the pre-fabricated walkways for the barge load-out facility in addition to other camp items and equipment.

The pile driving crew from Foresight Innovations Ltd. ("Foresight") has completed the installation of the conveyor superstructure and associated walkways and has left the site. Highbank would like to thank Gord Erickson and his Foresight crew for their exemplary service on our SPN project. Foresight has earned 2.73% of the Company's securities for their services reflecting their confidence in the project and ongoing commitment.

The SPN barge loading facility is expected to be fully operational in a couple weeks. Following the Thanksgiving weekend break the full crew of operators will be returning for work. The crew will continue preparatory work for installation of the crushing, screening and washing equipment for treating the 72 million ton aggregate deposit. This will place Highbank in the enviable position of being the nearest, significant, quality construction aggregate deposit to the Port of Prince Rupert, B.C. Canada and the other construction projects in the northwest area. This will also permit supply of aggregate to meet existing commitments and proposed LNG facility construction once the Provincial tax and royalty agreements have been finalized. (2)

Weather permitting; an inaugural ribbon cutting ceremony is being planned for early November 2014. Analysts, brokers and key investors wishing to attend need to contact the Company at their earliest convenience, as space is limited.

CEO Victor Bryant further comments… "The company would like, at this time to provide forward guidance for the fiscal year 2015. The Company projects a pre-tax profit in its first year production at SPN of $11 million on projected gross revenues of $27 million. (3)(4) The Company would be required to make application to expand its existing mine permit during that period".

"Highbank's SPN project is expected to have a CAPEX of less than $8 million to access a $2 billion CDN. NI 43 - 101 compliant resource. (5) Highbank has tendered preliminary bids on various construction projects: pipelines 1,000,000 M/t, LNG infrastructure 600,000 M/t, and Port of Prince Rupert infrastructure projects 600,000 M/t".

Default Highbank (TSX-V:HBK) Approaches Milestone First Production; Ready to Supply B.C. LNG

Highbank (TSX-V:HBK) Approaches Milestone First Production; Ready to Supply B.C. LNG and Port Infrastructure



VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Oct. 21, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The piling work for the load-out conveyor and mooring dolphins at Highbank Resources Ltd.'s (TSX-V:HBK) SPN aggregate mine was completed earlier this month and the conveyor sections and receiving hopper are now in place.

In the mine site area, stripping of the sand/silt layer immediately above the gravel deposit is continuing and crushing, washing and screening equipment is being prepared. Loading of the first barge is anticipated in the next two weeks.

The first barge to leave the new facility will be loaded with 1 inch crush destined for Prince Rupert.

In a recently distributed press release providing forward guidance, Highbank President and CEO Victor Bryant announced projected revenues of $27 million for fiscal 2015. First year pre-tax profits are projected at $11 million. Those estimates are based on pending orders and quotes submitted over the past few months. The full press release can be found on the company's website at www.highbankresources.com.

"It is of some import to note that the SPN project's total CapEx is under $8 million to access a $2.4 billion (NI 43-101 compliant) resource," states Bryant. "Although first production is slated for the end of October, we can disclose that we have already quoted on delivery in excess of 2 million tons of material."

To-date the company has submitted quotes for 1 million tons of material related to pipeline construction, 600,000 tons related to harbour expansion and 600,000 tons for first phase LNG infrastructure.

With a scarcity of aggregate in Alberta, additional quotes have been submitted for rail shipments back to that province for infrastructure builds.

In addition to quotes on near term projects, Highbank is working on securing business well into the future. Negotiations are underway to supply 2 million tons of aggregate for a pipeline project scheduled to begin construction late in 2016 or early 2017.

"Our business plan is based on existing projects," says Bryant.

While three quarters of Highbank's aggregate is destined for concrete, there is also significant demand for road building and soil stabilization.

"We can run a very profitable business as is, and when LNG construction begins, that will be bonus," adds Bryant.

Even before LNG projects get underway, a great deal of infrastructure will need to be built. A substantial increase in the region's workforce, both during construction and operation of the pipelines and terminals, will require housing, retail, recreation and support facilities. The Port of Prince Rupert is undergoing a massive infrastructure expansion, already valued in excess of $40 billion.

Availability of transportation corridors is an extremely important factor for marketability of aggregates. The SPN mine is located on the east side of the Portland Canal fjord on tidewater. Existing year round deep-water ports are located 38 miles north at Stewart and 72 miles south at Prince Rupert. This gives Highbank a major competitive advantage with the ability to ship product by high capacity barge while most competitors are required to truck.

The completion of the camp and load out facility will place Highbank in the enviable position of being the nearest, significant, quality construction aggregate deposit to the Port of Prince Rupert, B.C. and the other construction projects in the northwest area.

Default Highbank (TSX VENTURE: HBK) Applauds B.C. Government's Reduced LNG Levy

Highbank (TSX VENTURE: HBK) Applauds B.C. Government's Reduced LNG Levy




VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - October 24, 2014) - Highbank Resources Ltd. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: HBK) (FRANKFURT: V7O).

President/CEO Victor Bryant comments… "The Highbank board of directors whole-heartedly applaud B.C. Premier Christy Clark and her Ministers on their revised B.C. LNG export levy." This revised tax structure should most assuredly entice the energy behemoths (1) of the recently formed B.C. LNG Developers Alliance, comprising Malaysian state controlled Petronas-led Pacific Northwest LNG; Shell Canada Energy-led LNG Canada; BG Group PLC's Prince Rupert LNG; and the Kitimat LNG project, which is co-owned with the Canadian units of Chevron.

Commenting to Bloomberg, one of the Alliance members (Royal Dutch Shell) stated, "We are pleased to have certainty on a final B.C. LNG tax framework". David Keane, President of the BC LNG Alliance added, "We appreciate the fact that the government has revisited their original tax."

LNG Canada, the Kitimat-based LNG project led by Shell, issued a further statement that appears supportive of the government tax structure unveiled Tuesday. "We are of the view that the BC LNG tax framework announced by the government provides balance and consideration of the global challenges in the LNG marketplace faced by the LNG sector in B.C.," the company said in a statement. "We consider it an important input to our decision-making process."

This LNG levy regime will be of tremendous benefit to Highbank, which is poised to commence production at its NI 43-101 compliant, aggregate deposit on the Portland Canal. To put the scope of the proposed development of LNG in B.C. in perspective the following map indicates the location to the companies' involved. (2)

Currently high rainfall at the site is delaying gravel preparation. However, the delay is allowing work to proceed on winterizing the camp, completing a dry storage area for equipment and supplies, and other infrastructure work around the barge load-out site.

Further to the TSX Venture Exchange acceptance for filing bulletin of October 15, 2014, the Company has issued a second tranche of 1,193,000 shares at a deemed price of $0.22 to settle a debt of $262,500 to Foresight Innovations Ltd. of Victoria, B.C. The shares are subject to a hold period from trading until February 17, 2015.

Default Highbank (TSX VENTURE: HBK) -- Swamp Point North Site Update

Highbank (TSX VENTURE: HBK) -- Swamp Point North Site Update





VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - November 06, 2014) - Highbank Resources Ltd. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: HBK).

President/CEO Victor Bryant reports.

Highbank's crew have moved the wash/screening plant and cone crusher to their final operational location adjacent to the Swamp Point North ("SPN") deposit. The task of moving the plant from sea level up 200 feet through three switchbacks was a difficult move. The wash plant and cone crusher (a +$400,000 piece of equipment) weighing approx. 80,000 lbs required careful handling. To ensure the safety of the crew and the equipment, Highbank barged in additional equipment for this move. A specialized semi-trailer tow truck was employed to act as a brake should the plant lose its purchase on the steep slope. Further specialized air bags were employed to alleviate any offsetting forces while an excavator traveled alongside ensuring no side forces deterred progress.

Over the course of the week a journeyman electrician will be powering up both the wash plant and the conveyor barge load-out facility. The power will come from two separate generators; one to supply the wash plant and the second for the barge loading conveyor facility.

Victor Bryant comments…"At this juncture I would like to apologize on behalf of myself, the management, contractors and employees for the delay in the SPN production timetable. Extreme weather conditions directly impacted our proposed plans, both in the removal of the overburden and the installation of key equipment. Of paramount importance in all our endeavours on the SPN project is the safety of all contractors, employees and equipment. The Company will not compromise these criteria now, or in the future."

It is anticipated that improved weather conditions forecast for November will assist in preparing the settling ponds for collection of the wash plant water sprays and enable the roads to be improved for hauling aggregate to the load-out hopper. Achievement of these objectives will regain some of the time lost as we progress towards our final goal.

Loan-Bonus Shares

Further to the TSX Venture Exchange acceptance for filing bulletin of October 27, 2014, the Company has issued a total of 227,273 bonus shares at a deemed price of $0.22 to various arm's length parties in consideration of loans advanced totaling $500,000. The shares are subject to a hold period from trading until February 28, 2015

Victor N. Bryant, CEO/President comments, "I am pleased to list and comment on recent news stories and events that could have a direct impact and/or are relevant to the development of the Swamp Point North operation."

20.11.14 Nisga'a Nation signs onto LNG project

"The opportunity to be an active player in the LNG industry is the kind of opportunity for which our elders struggled for over a century, so we could achieve sustainable prosperity for our people into the next century, our elders have told us, now is the time to be bold and move forward." -- Nisga'a Nation President, Mitchell Stevens.

Victor N. Bryant, CEO comments, "I commend the elected officials and elders of the Nisga'a Nation for an agreement that helps ensure a prosperous future for the Nisga'a people. The Nisga'a are our neighbors and Highbank will always support them in their endeavors." Story: http://ow.ly/EDwz3

20.11.14 Exxon Mobil Canada joins B.C. LNG Alliance

"The alliance states Exxon Mobil Canada has a licence to export as much as 30 million tonnes of LNG annually and the company has entered an option agreement with the City of Prince Rupert for a site at Tuck Inlet."

CBC story: http://ow.ly/EDiO6 Area Map: http://ow.ly/EDdTL

This news is well received by Highbank, as this LNG site is yet another potential major location for sales of the Company's construction aggregates.

14.11.14 Site Inspection

Our director, Mr. Jim Place met on site with representatives of an International engineering firm tasked with identifying viable sources of construction aggregate for an unnamed multinational energy corporation. Mr. Place came in from Stewart, B.C. by company workboat to meet the Engineers who flew in to the site by helicopter. The inspection was completed and Mr. Place will be providing details of the initial sample test reports to the engineering firm.

13.11.14 JAPEX Breaks ground on its "Soma Port" LNG terminal -- Fukushima Prefecture

Vic Bryant comments, "The official JAPEX press release affords some very telling insights as to the production timing for the Petronas led PNW LNG consortium (JAPEX 10% -- 12 million ton stake). The press release specifically references the source of the LNG coming to this new terminal as from the Port of Prince Rupert, although they further stated the terminal will be receiving LNG from other un-named sources. Scheduled start of operations, March 2018."

Highbank Resources (TSX VENTURE: HBK) SPN Quarry Project & LNG Updates



VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - February 19, 2015) - Highbank Resources Ltd. (the "Company"), (TSX VENTURE: HBK).

Victor N. Bryant, CEO/President reports: "A crew at Swamp Point North ("SPN") has recently returned to the site and is active clearing snow, upgrading and maintaining roads, and logging/clearing further quarry area for stockpiles. Khtada Environmental Services LP monitoring personnel were on site last week taking samples in compliance with our Mines Act Permit. A supply barge left the Port of Prince Rupert, Wednesday morning to arrive later today. The barge manifest included specific winter weather materials -- chains for the 30 ton rock trucks, corks/spikes for the bulldozer, winter camp supplies and additional large diameter culvert pipes for appropriate road and drainage use."

"I will be arriving at the SPN project today with Stan Spletzer (V.P. of Aggregate Operations) and Bill Faulhaffer (Journeyman Quarry Operations Manager), who will be in charge of the day to day operations of our quarry operation. Also accompanying us will be a Micon International engineer to commence work on the PEA study as per our February 16, 2015 new release."

"The SPN project crew was making ready to move on site for February 1, 2015 when a significant snow event occurred. Presently, there is about three feet of snow on site, but we can see no reason that we, as a Canadian Company are going to stop progress for snow. Additional crews are expecting to arrive to SPN Friday, February 20th to further enhance roads; excavate discharge settling ponds for the wash plant; commission the wash plant, move the jaw crusher to optimal positioning and commission the jaw crusher; install culverts for further water runoff management; expand shoreline area for stockpiling and shipping finished aggregates; and last but not least, commission the quarry and plant to process through the first of many barge loads of aggregate for 2015 anticipated sales."

Default Focus Graphite (TSX VENTURE:FMS)(OTCQX:FCSMF)(FRANKFURT:FKC) Announces Additional Deb

Focus Graphite (TSX VENTURE:FMS)(OTCQX:FCSMF)(FRANKFURT:FKC) Announces Additional Debt Financing Interest in Lac Knife




OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Feb. 24, 2015) - Focus Graphite Inc. (TSX VENTURE:FMS)(OTCQX:FCSMF)(FRANKFURT:FKC) ("Focus" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that FLSmidth ("FLS") has expressed its formal interest to further evaluate the Company's Lac Knife Project in order to provide Focus with a "One Source" solution of engineering & technical services and supply of mineral processing equipment.

The initial set of Lac Knife mineral processing equipment being proposed by FLS bears a feasibility study level cost estimate of $12 million. The project scope may include a second component at a later date associated with dewatering, filtration, and conveyance equipment used for the de-watering and dry-stacking of tailings.

Focus included this revised tailings management system in the Environmental and Social Impact Assessment report filed in November 2014 in order to reduce the environmental footprint of Lac Knife's general site layout.

FLSmidth, is a Danish multinational global corporation with annual revenues in excess of 3.6 billion euros, and is a leading supplier of mineral processing equipment and mining services and is specialized in dry-stacked tailings management.

"FLS's Letter of Interest represents another significant potential financing option as the Company develops the Lac Knife Structured Project Financing," said Don Baxter, Focus Graphite President and Chief Operating Officer.

FLS has introduced the Lac Knife project to the Danish Export Credit Agency ("EKF") and the project may be eligible for EKF credit support. An EKF guarantee is backed by the Danish State, and as such, the EKF loan guarantee can be considered as AAA-rated. "Both parties are discussing this financing option with a view to achieving a mutually satisfactory conclusion."

"This potential debt facility represents 7% of Lac Knife's total project financing requirements, raising the total of potential vendor financing to approximately 20%. Terms of a debt facility are to be negotiated and a comprehensive disclosure will be released at a later date."

This announcement follows the Caterpillar Structured Finance announcement on January 6th, 2015. Focus is continuing project-financing discussions with various stakeholders, investors, and institutional funds in both the public and private sector with the objective of minimizing shareholder dilution through a mix of debt and equity financing.

On August 8th, 2014 Focus Graphite published its Lac Knife Project Feasibility Study that included a mine and concentrator operation with a capital expenditure requirement of $165.6 million including a $17.1 million contingency.

Qualified Person
The technical information in this news release was prepared, reviewed and approved by Mr. Don Baxter, P. Eng., Focus President & Chief Operating Officer, and a Qualified Person as defined by NI 43-101 guidelines.

About FLSmidth

Established in Denmark in 1882, FLSmidth supplies the minerals and cement industries globally with engineering, single machines and complete processing plants, maintenance, support services and operation of processing facilities. Its core strengths are reflected in its market-leading product range, its ability to implement, manage and maintain projects, and its operation of minerals and cement processing plants worldwide.

Default Highbank's (TSX: HBK) (FRANKFURT: V7O) Swamp Point North Aggregate Plant Is Now Comm

Highbank's (TSX: HBK) (FRANKFURT: V7O) Swamp Point North Aggregate Plant Is Now Commissioned




VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - April 14, 2015) - Highbank Resources Ltd. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: HBK) (FRANKFURT: V7O) -

Victor Bryant, CEO/President comments,

"Another Major Milestone has been Reached. Our Director- Jim Place, P.Geo. was on site for the commissioning of the wash plant, cone crusher, jaw crusher and stacking conveyor systems. To view the first production video (click #1 below). Mr. Place took several samples of the first production, adhering to proper handling protocol procedures. The samples were delivered to a certified testing laboratory in Terrace, B.C. where standard construction aggregate tests will be conducted to ensure compliance with end user specifications. Mr. Place also delivered samples of the initial Swamp Point North ("SPN") quarry run to sand and gravel consumers in Prince Rupert. The quality of our aggregates was well received. A potential new client will be visiting the operation in the next two weeks to ensure the compatibility of our load-out facility with their marine transport systems."

"Currently the plant is being used to produce crushed gravel for onsite haulage road and stockpile site upgrades. Once these improvements are completed SPN will move into full plant production mode and begin preparing aggregate stockpiles for shipments."

"Within a year of receiving our mine operating permit, we have seen the SPN -Portland Canal Quarry Project obtain funding, procure and transport to the site all necessary equipment, establish a year round camp, logged and cleared the site and expanded a road haulage network, construct a $multi- million marine load-out system, build a water recirculation pond for the aggregate washing plant, and commissioned all equipment for a fully functioning oceanside sand and gravel operation."

"We would like to thank all the parties involved, from investors to construction personnel for their optimism and confidence throughout these difficult market times, and the construction period. Highbank intends to continue its positive and productive pace, as we become a major aggregate supplier on the northwest coast of British Columbia, Canada."
