Mining Stock Alert: SilverCrest (TSX.V: SVL) (NYSE MKT: SVLC) Announces Updated Santa Elena Reserves and Resources

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA - May 29, 2013 (Investorideas.com Mining Stocks Newswire) SilverCrest Mines Inc. (TSX.V:SVL) ( NYSE MKT: SVLC) (CW5.F) ("SilverCrest" or the "Company") is pleased to announce updated Reserve and Resource estimations for its Santa Elena Mine in Sonora, Mexico. The updated Probable Reserves (underground, open pit and leach pad) are estimated at 8.2 million tonnes grading 74.9 gpt Ag and 1.24 gpt Au containing 19.7 million ounces of silver and 327,430 ounces of gold, representing a 103% increase in contained silver and 50% increase in contained gold over previous Probable Reserves stated below. Updated Indicated Resources (exclusive of Probable Reserves) are estimated at 2.1 million tonnes grading 114.9 gpt Ag and 1.69 gpt Au containing 7.9 million ounce of silver and 116,000 ounces of gold, representing a 127% increase in contained silver and 99% increase in contained gold over previous Indicated Resources stated below. Details of the updated Reserves and Resources are summarized in the following tables and will be included in the Santa Elena Expansion Pre-Feasibility Study (Technical Report) to be filed on SEDAR within 45 days of this release.
J. Scott Drever, President commented: "We are extremely pleased with the results of our updated Reserve and Resource estimates for the underground, open pit and heap leach pad definition and resource expansion drill program. The significant increase in Reserves has clearly defined processing feed for our planned 3,000 tonne per day processing facility (Milling & CCD leaching) for an additional 8 years. What is even more exciting is that we have yet to define the limits of the Main Mineralized Zone and have only begun to explore the newly discovered high grade El Cholugo and El Cholugo Dos zones. We look forward to a banner year in 2014 with the commissioning of the new processing facility in Q1 2014 and the expansion of our annual metals production to an estimated 3.5 to 4.0 million ounces of silver equivalent (55:1 Ag:Au)."
Investorideas.com Newswire Note: All numbers are rounded. Underground and Leach Pad Reserves and Resources are based on 3 year historic metal price trends of US$28/oz silver, US$1450/oz gold and metallurgical recoveries of 92% Au and 67.5% Ag with a metal ratio of Ag:Au at 70:1 used for grade cutoff determination. All Mineral Resources and Reserves conform to NI 43-101, 43-101CP, and CIM definitions for Resources and Reserves. Inferred Resources have been estimated from geological evidence and limited sampling and must be treated with a lower level of confidence than Indicated Resources.
1 Open Pit and Leach Pad Probable Reserves were classified by SilverCrest. Underground Reserves and Resources were classified by EBA, a Tetra Tech Company.
2 Underground Probable Reserve is based on a cutoff grade of 1.47 gpt AuEq with an average 10% dilution and 90% mine recovery. Average true thickness of the designed stopes is 13.4 metres.
3 Open Pit Reserve is based on a cutoff grade of 0.20 gpt AuEq in a constrained pit shell with applied capping of 8 gpt Au and 300 gpt Ag.
4 Leach Pad Reserve based on production and drill hole data for volumetrics and grade model using a cutoff grade of 0.5 gpt AuEq. No capping was applied.
5 Underground Resources are exclusive of Probable Reserves and based on 1 gpt AuEq grade shell, a cutoff grade of 1.4 gpt AuEq, and applied capping of 12 gpt Au and 600 gpt Ag.
Investorideas.com Newswire 1 based on $1,000/oz of gold and $18/oz of silver, cut-off grade of 0.38 gpt gold equivalent with applied metallurgical recoveries.
2 based on $1,000/oz of gold and $18/oz of silver, cut-off grade is 1.77 gpt gold equivalent with applied metallurgical recoveries.
Before production commenced, the Santa Elena open pit defined a mine life of approximately 6.5 years (including ramp up) having a Reserve of 5.1 million tonnes grading 1.72 gpt Au and 73.4 gpt Ag (refer to Technical Report dated April 1, 2011). In April 2011, the open pit Reserve was depleted by approximately 6 months of production and optimized with a remaining 4.79 million tonnes grading 1.81 gpt Au and 75.9 gpt Ag (refer to Technical Report dated April 1, 2011). By January 2012, the open pit was depleted from 2011 production and re-optimized with a resultant Reserve of 3.45 million tonnes grading 1.96 gpt Au and 87.3 gpt Ag showing lesser tonnes and higher grade. Re-optimization of the open pit between April 2011 and April 2013 has reclassified approximately 880,000 tonnes of open pit Reserve to underground Resources which was converted mostly (excluding stope pillars) to the new underground Reserves. The main purpose for re-optimization was to avoid a higher open pit strip ratio at higher cost in future years in the mine life but still be able to mine the displaced Reserves from underground.

SANTA ELENA UPDATED RESERVE AND RESOURCE DATABASES
Based on available data, the current dominant silver-gold mineralization at the Santa Elena Mine is hosted within the Main Mineralized Zone (MMZ) which is a low-sulfidation calcium-rich epithermal deposit that strikes nearly east-west for an estimated distance of 1.3 kilometres with an average true width of approximately 15 metres. The continuous mineralized zone has been drill-tested to a minimum depth of 500 metres from surface and open in most directions. The near-parallel El Cholugo and El Cholugo Dos zones are located approximately 20 to 50 metres below the footwall of the MMZ. These two new discoveries appear to be splays off the MMZ with similar silver-gold mineralization.
The updated underground Reserves and Resources have been independently estimated by EBA, a Tetra Tech Company, utilizing 2012 and 2013 drilling results along with previous independently-validated data (see SEDAR for previous NI 43-101 compliant Technical Reports). Drilling in 2012 and early 2013 was focused on conversion and expansion of underground Resources to Reserves with an average drill hole spacing of approximately 35 metres. Drilling data from 2012 and 2013 used for underground Resource estimate included 138 holes (45,011 metres) and 96 previous holes (14,865 metres). A total of 2,941 composite samples were used as the basis for the block model.
The updated open pit Reserves and Resources have been estimated by SilverCrest utilizing Company extensive production data (blastholes), exploration drilling data and computer modelling. All Indicated Resources in the currently operating open pit have been converted to Reserves as of April 30, 2013.
The Leach Pad Reserves (spent ore) have been estimated by the Company utilizing crusher composite samples, drill data from verification holes on the pad, bottle roll tests to process design specifications and SilverCrest production leach curves. In early May 2013, the Company completed 25 large diameter drill holes (355 metres) on the pad to obtain additional information for the purposes of validation of production data. All spent ore material on the leach pad will be reprocessed through the new processing facility once operational. Only the material currently on the pad and leached (300 day cycle completed or estimated full cycle) has been declared as Reserves. Approximately 750,000 tonnes of open pit material is planned to be placed on the pad during the remainder of 2013 and will undergo only partial leaching before being reprocessed through the new facility. Once this material is placed on the pad and leaching has been discontinued, it will be declared as leach pad Reserves for processing and metal recovery in late 2014 and beyond.
Extensive metallurgical test work including ongoing operations data show that all declared Reserves are amenable to conventional leaching either by heap leach technology or standard CCD milling with a Merrill Crowe recovery system for dore bar production. Estimated recovery grades are stated below in Reserves Criteria table.
SANTA ELENA UPDATED RESERVE AND RESOURCE MODELLING
The Santa Elena underground, open pit and leach pad Mineral Resource estimates were completed using Gemcom GEMS modelling software and are compliant with National Instrument 43-101 and conform to guidelines and definitions established by the Canadian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy (CIM). Using CIM Definition Standards for Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves, Mineral Resources have been classified as being either Indicated or Inferred based on the number of samples used for estimation relative to the block location and the overall search distance confidence derived from the variogram analysis. Inferred Resources should not be used as the basis for evaluation of economic viability of the project. Details of these criteria will be presented in the Technical Report to be filed on SEDAR.
The Underground Mineral Resource estimates are based on verified information from historical and recent Company sources, up to and including drill hole SE-13-145. The block model includes the Main Mineralized Zone, El Cholugo and El Cholugo Dos. Solid boundaries for the mineralization were interpreted within a geological vein solid and constrained using a minimum 1 gpt AuEq cut-off from raw drill hole assay intervals. The Main Mineralized Zone grade shell was segmented into three major domains to accommodate flexures and structural orientation changes. The raw assay data was composited to 1 metre within the grade shell and was interpolated into a 5 metre x 5 metre x 5 metre block size model using Ordinary Kriging. Grade caps of 12 gpt Au and 600 gpt Ag were determined from log-probability and histogram analysis and applied after compositing. The search ellipse ranges were based on geological field observation, semi-variogram analysis and iterative interpolation. Grade interpolation within the vein hosted mineralization utilized two passes with anisotropic search ellipses oriented along the interpreted domain trend with major axes ranges of 90 and 117 metres, and semi-major ranges of 69 and 89 metres, respectively. A minimum of 2 composites, to a maximum of 15, were required to interpolate block grades with no more than 5 composites reporting from any one drill hole. Based on limited laboratory and in situ specific gravity testing, a value of 2.60 g/cm3 was applied as a specific gravity for all vein hosted mineralized material in the model.
The Open Pit Mineral Resource estimates are based on verified information from historical and recent Company sources. Solid boundaries for the mineralization were constrained at 0.20 gpt AuEq cut off and the open pit limits defines the mineralized material dated as December 31, 2012. All open pit Mineral Resources are declared as Reserves. Open pit production from January 1 to April 30, 2013 was subtracted from the December 2012 Resource estimation. The Resource estimation was completed using Gemcom GEMS software applying Ordinary Kriging. Raw data (blast holes, core and RC samples) were composited to a 5 metre length for blast holes and 2 metre length for in-pit core and RC samples. These composites were assessed for spatial and geostatistical purposes. A capping of 8 gpt Au and 300 gpt Ag was applied to core and RC data only. The composite data was interpolated into a 5 metre x 5 metre x 5 metre block size model using Ordinary Kriging in two passes. The first one using only blast hole data with an average spacing of 4 metres and interpolating grades to a maximum distance of 15 metres from the sample location. The second pass used only core and RC drilling data spaced on average 50 metres to interpolate 5 metre x 5 metre x 5 metre blocks located in distances beyond 15 metres from the sample location. The blasthole resource model was compared against the production data for verification purposes.
The Leach Pad Reserves (spent ore) have been estimated by the Company utilizing daily production, grade and mass records obtained at the crushing plant when conveying mineralized material to the pad. These records represent a complete production dataset since start up of the operations at Santa Elena. A detailed leach pad survey was completed in April 2013 to provide volumes of material placed on the pad. This volume was compared with weightometer data collected on the crushing plant to validate tonnes on the pad using well known specific gravity on the leach pad of 1.85 g/cm3. SilverCrest has completed 25 large diameter Becker Hammer, Tandem Mounted hydraulic drill holes (355 metres- drill holes spaced on a 25 metre by 25 metre grid) on the pad to obtain additional information for the purposes of validation of production data. Raw assay data were interpolated into a 100 metre x 100 metre x 6 metre block size model. An inverse distance squared methodology was used with a single domain and search ellipse. The search ellipse ranges were based on drill hole spacing, field observation, geostatistical analysis and iterative interpolation. No grade capping was applied. Grade interpolation within the two surfaces utilized an anisotropic ellipse oriented along the interpreted zone with major and semi-major axis ranges of 200 metres and a minor axis range of 200 metres. A minimum of 2 composites, to a maximum of 12, were required to interpolate block grades with no more than 3 composites reporting from any one drill hole in multi stage search radiuses to populate all blocks. The validation results support the estimation by the Company utilizing daily production data.
SANTA ELENA RESERVE CRITERIA
The Santa Elena Reserve estimates as stated above were completed using GEMS resource models for defining open pit, underground and leach pad Reserves along with criteria as presented in the following table.
Investorideas.com Newswire 1 Based on 3 year historic metal price trends
2 Underground mining costs, dilution and mine recovery are based on stope type, either long hole (68% of design stopes) or cut and fill (32% of designed stopes) mining method.
3 Processing includes crushing, milling, site refining and dry stack tailings disposal.
4 Estimated based on current operations and may vary on an annual basis.
5 Recoveries for leach pad based on 2009 Metcon test work and recent Company production leach cycles for life of pad. During the period from 2010 through 2012 (solution ramp up), an average recovery of 57% Au and 30% Ag was achieved. Refer to Technical Report dated May 11, 2011 on SEDAR. Leach pad CCD mill recoveries are based on in-situ remaining ounces on the pad.

Solar Stock Q&A with CEO of XsunX, Inc. (OTCQB: XSNX) Discussing Paradigm Shift in Solar Industry

Point Roberts, WA - May 22, 2013 (Investorideas.com newswire) Investorideas.com staff: Investorideas.com, an investor research portal specializing in investing ideas in leading sectors including renewable energy stocks, issues an exclusive Q&A interview with Mr. Tom Djokovich, CEO of the solar company, XsunX, Inc. (OTCQB: XSNX). Mr. Djokovich shares insight into the paradigm shift within the solar industry and how his company has adjusted accordingly.

Q: Investorideas.com
In a recent press release you discussed a paradigm shift within the solar industry. Investors have seen firsthand how stocks reflected massive changes in this sector. Can you expand on that thought and on how your company has adjusted to these changes?
A: XsunX CEO Tom Djokovich
The good news is that PV installations worldwide are on track to increase about 19% this year, and most analysts see near 17% CAGR through 2020. Almost every nation or region now has a long-term renewable energy plan that includes a significant portion to solar. This is fantastic for the industry and XsunX. However, these numbers come on the heels of several years of overcapacity during which we saw intense completion, significant plant closures, and prices declining to levels that are below the typical production costs of many PV manufacturers. This had created huge declines in investor confidence.
During this period of shakeout and market rationalization, we felt that attempting to compete without any real differentiation could lead to rapid failure. So, XsunX adapted by focusing on the development of our CIGSolar® technology as a next-generation replacement technology for the use of silicon. With silicon, the dominant technology in use today, having been squeezed to virtually a zero margin business, the assumptions we made at the initial launch of our technology development (that low cost CIGS solar cells could replace silicon and revive margins), are still true today.
Q: Investorideas.com
The company also reported that Dr. John R. Tuttle had joined the Company's Advisory Board. Can you give an overview of his background and what he brings to the table for XsunX?
A: XsunX CEO Tom Djokovich
In my opinion, Dr. Tuttle is an entrepreneur and cutting edge scientist wrapped into one and that's not easy to find in the PV sector. He has over 30 years' experience during which he was a Senior Scientist at NREL, where his research guided the fabrication of thin-film CIGS PV devices, elevating the science with multiple world-record efficiencies, and he has shown success as an entrepreneur building a PV tech business from the ground up.
There are a lot of talented engineers and scientists in the industry that will deliver exactly what you ask for without regard for practicality. If you want examples, just look at the Solyndra project - great engineering - impractical application of the technology. In today's market, we were looking for someone that could help identify opportunities and ways to adapt our technology into markets that some may be overlooking. John is that type of person.
Q: Investorideas.com
Can you give us a brief overview of CIGSolar® technology and how that plays into the changes in the solar industry as you foresee it?
A: XsunX CEO Tom Djokovich
The general science of CIGS ( Copper Indium Gallium (di) Selenide) thin film solar cells is well known. The issues have been in transitioning world-class laboratory results into world-class, large-scale manufacturing systems. Therefore, you might say it isn't as much of a science challenge as an engineering application challenge. In looking at the problem, we decided to take a page from the hard disc-drive industry (a thin film industry) and apply some of the lessons' they have learned.
There are several ways to make CIGS and we use co-evaporation - the method that has produced the best efficiency results. Scaling co-evaporation has presented challenges, so our idea was to scale the number of controlled points of evaporation and not the evaporation technology itself. This is in essence what the hard disc industry did when they replaced large area manufacturing techniques with mass small area manufacturing methods. The results were passed along to consumers in the form of higher memory capacity and lower pricing. That's the effect we believe our CIGSolar® technology can provide to the industry.
Q: Investorideas.com
Tom, what do you see as both the biggest obstacles and opportunities for your company and the sector in general?
A: XsunX CEO Tom Djokovich
First, let me say that I think that the stars are aligning again for the industry. Several years of over-capacity has in many ways produced positive effects such as the elimination of numerous inefficient manufacturers, cost reductions that continue to make solar more and more attractive as a viable alternative to coal and nuclear, and a hundred gigawatts of installed capacity with hundreds more planned has increased PV's relevance as a mainstream source of power production.
The challenge that we see is working through the residual effects of the billions of dollars that were lost by investors and manufacturers in investments made into other thin film technologies such as amorphous silicon. The rapid decline in silicon pricing cut any value proposition offered by amorphous or non-coevaporation CIGS off at the knees. It took the market by surprise and what we are working to accomplish is to rebuild the confidence of investors in next-generation thin film manufacturing techniques.
The good news is that silicon pricing has stabilized - that makes it easier to predict longer-term value propositions in new technologies such as our CIGSolar®. In addition, with long-term renewable energy plans being adopted in developing regions worldwide we see more opportunities for CIGSolar®. The cost differences between deploying silicon manufacturing and CIGSolar® infrastructure are significant. This is why we have been responding to firms in those regions interested in deploying CIGSolar® as their technology choice.
About XsunX (OTCQB: XSNX)
XsunX, Inc. is working to commercialize a new manufacturing process to produce low cost, high efficiency thin-film Copper Indium Gallium (di) Selenide (CIGS) thin film solar cells. Our patent-pending processing technology, which we call CIGSolar®, focuses on the mass production of thin-film CIGS solar cells utilizing a proprietary multi-area thermal deposition process to minimize processing defects to create highly uniform CIGS films. These cells match silicon solar cell dimensions and can be offered as a non-toxic, high-efficiency and lowest-cost alternative to the use of silicon solar cells. The company is offering licenses for the use of the CIGSolar® process technology, and plans to generate revenue through licensing fees and manufacturing royalties for the use of the CIGSolar® technology.

Oilfield Services / Frac Water Stock Trading Alert; HII Technologies, Inc. (HIIT) Announces First Quarter 2013 Results

HOUSTON - May 15, 2013 (Investorideas.com Newswire) HII Technologies, Inc. (the "Company") (OTCBB: HIIT), an oilfield services company headquartered in Houston, Texas, today announced financial results for the first quarter ending March 31, 2013.

As stated in the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed on May 15, 2013, first quarter 2013 revenues were $2,609,773, which generated a gross profit margin of $532,292. These revenues consist of AES Water Solutions as well as initial revenue contribution from South Texas Power and the AES Safety Services divisions, which were launched in late December 2012 and January 2013 respectively. AES Water Solutions generated revenues of $536,371 for the comparable period in 2012. Accordingly, this represents revenue growth for AES of more than 380% for the first quarter 2013, on a pro forma basis, from the comparable period in 2012.
For the first quarter ending March 31, 2013, the Company had Adjusted EBITDA of approximately $101,390, (EBITDA defined as earnings before interest, depreciation, amortization, non-cash stock option expenses, and one-time non-operational expense items), a non-GAAP measure. A reconciliation table of the Adjusted EBITDA is provided below. The Net Loss for the first quarter 2013 was $114,389.
Brent Mulliniks, President of AES Water Solutions stated, "We experienced good growth in the first quarter from both increased demand with existing customers and from expanded operations. AES incurred additional expenses as it established new areas of operations in the Permian Basin and the Cline Shale in West Texas as well as the Eagle Ford Shale in South Texas." Mr. Mulliniks continued, "New revenues are now being generated as a result of these expenditures."
"All three divisions, Water, Power and Safety, exceeded their revenue targets for the first quarter 2013," said Matthew Flemming, CEO of HII Technologies. "Our investments in people and equipment which used cash flow from existing operations should continue to fuel organic growth. Also, the Company continues to evaluate new technologies and potential acquisitions."
Mr. Flemming also confirmed that the Company's expansion into West and South Texas with AES Water Solutions frac water supply operations added new customers and generated additional revenues while reducing its overall customer concentration. Mr. Flemming continued, "The Company procured trailers, manifolds, and related equipment as well as sourced new labor for these strategic markets. Currently, we anticipate further growth in all three divisions in these active resource areas going forward."
Investorideas.com Newswire As reported in the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ending March 31, 2013, Current Assets increased by approximately $796,000 to approximately $2,540,000 from the previous quarter ended December 31, 2012. The Company's Stockholder's Equity (Total Assets minus Total Liabilities) decreased by approximately $63,000 to approximately $808,000, sequentially from the previous quarter ended December 31, 2012. These balance sheet changes were the result of increased revenues and cash flow partially offset by expansion costs and other one-time expenses.

Forward-Looking Statements
This press release contains "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Any statements as to matters that are not of historic fact are forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are based on HII's current expectations, estimates and projections about HII, its industry, its management's beliefs and certain assumptions made by management, and include statements regarding estimated capital expenditures, future operational and activity expectations, international growth, and anticipated financial performance in 2013. No assurance can be given that such expectations, estimates or projections will prove to have been correct. Whenever possible, these "forward-looking statements" are identified by words such as "expects," "believes," "anticipates" and similar phrases.
Readers are cautioned that any such forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and are subject to certain risks, uncertainties and assumptions that are difficult to predict, including, but not limited to: risks that HII will be unable to achieve its financial, capital expenditure and operational projections, including quarterly and annual projections of revenue and/or operating income and risks that HII's expectations regarding future activity levels, customer demand, and pricing stability may not materialize (whether for HII as a whole or for geographic regions and/or business segments individually); risks that fundamentals in the U.S. oil and gas markets may not yield anticipated future growth in HII's businesses, or could further deteriorate or worsen from the recent market declines, and/or that HII could experience further unexpected declines in activity and demand for its hydraulic frac related water transfer business, its safety consultancy business or its generator and related equipment rental service businesses; risks relating to HII's ability to implement technological developments and enhancements; risks relating to compliance with environmental, health and safety laws and regulations, as well as actions by governmental and regulatory authorities; risks that HII may be unable to achieve the benefits expected from acquisition and disposition transactions, and risks associated with integration of the acquired operations into HII's operations; risks, in responding to changing or declining market conditions, that HII may not be able to reduce, and could even experience increases in, the costs of labor, fuel, equipment and supplies employed and used in HII's businesses; risks relating to changes in the demand for or the price of oil and natural gas; risks that HII may not be able to execute its capital expenditure program and/or that any such capital expenditure investments, if made, will not generate adequate returns; and other risks affecting HII's ability to maintain or improve operations, including its ability to maintain prices for services under market pricing pressures, weather risks, and the impact of potential increases in general and administrative expenses.
Because such statements involve risks and uncertainties, many of which are outside of HII's control, HII's actual results and performance may differ materially from the results expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. Given these risks and uncertainties, readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on such forward-looking statements. Other important risk factors that may affect HII's business, results of operations and financial position are discussed in its most recently filed Annual Report on Form 10-K, recent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, recent Current Reports on Form 8-K and in other Securities and Exchange Commission filings. Unless otherwise required by law, HII also disclaims any obligation to update its view of any such risks or uncertainties or to announce publicly the result of any revisions to the forward-looking statements made here. However, readers should review carefully reports and documents that HII files periodically with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
