Medical Technology Breaking News: Aethlon Medical (OTCQB: AEMD) Announces Renewal of DARPA Dialysis-Like Therapeutics Contract

SAN DIEGO - September 26, 2013 (Investorideas.com newswire) Aethlon Medical, Inc. (OTCBB:AEMD), the pioneer in developing selective therapeutic filtration devices to address infectious disease, cancer and other life-threatening conditions, announced today that the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has exercised an option agreement to proceed with year-three of a five-year $6.8 million contract that was awarded to Aethlon on September 30, 2011 under DARPA's Dialysis-Like Therapeutics (DLT) program.

The third year of Aethlon's DLT contract contains eight milestones representing a potential of $1,534,099 in revenue opportunity. To date, Aethlon has invoiced $3,188,131 to DARPA for achieving fourteen of sixteen milestone objectives targeted in the first two years of the DLT program.
The goal of the DLT program is to develop a portable device that removes "dirty" blood from the body, separates harmful agents, and returns "clean" blood to the body in a manner similar to dialysis treatment of kidney failure. The resulting device would decrease the morbidity and mortality of sepsis, thereby saving thousands of lives and billions of dollars in the United States annually. In the DLT program, Aethlon has been contracted to utilize the Aethlon ADAPT™ system to create an extracorporeal blood purification cartridge that selectively eliminates sepsis-enabling particles from circulation to promote recovery and prevent sepsis. The Aethlon ADAPT™ converges advanced plasma membrane technology with high affinity drug agents to allow the selective yet rapid clearance of disease targets from the entire circulatory system without damaging blood cells or removing particles essential for health. Aethlon has also been contracted to develop a novel blood circulatory instrument that will deliver ADAPT™ based and other therapeutic filtration devices without systemic anticoagulants normally required in extracorporeal therapies.
Beyond the civilian need for anti-sepsis therapies, the device proposed in the DLT program would play an important role in saving the lives of wounded U.S. military personnel, as infection leading to sepsis is a significant cause of mortality. When sepsis is complicated by shock, approximately half of patients do not survive for 30 days, even if effective antibiotics are used. Unfortunately, the fatality rate from sepsis can be high, given that antibiotic-resistant bacteria are an increasing problem for injured warfighters and military treatment facilities. Bio-agents engineered for resistance against antibiotics also represent a significant threat to both warfighters and citizens. Current culture-based methods of identifying blood-borne pathogens can take 48 hours or longer to identify the offending pathogen, and some blood-borne pathogens do not propagate in culture. Pending these culture results, septic patients are treated with protocol-based broad-spectrum antibiotics. In the event the offending pathogen is resistant to the empirically chosen antibiotic, the fatality rate may increase as much as 9% per hour.
Aethlon is currently preparing to launch the first U.S. studies of Hemopurifier® therapy based on the recent approval of an Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Under the IDE, Aethlon will enroll ten end stage renal disease (ESRD) patients infected with HCV as part of a feasibility study to demonstrate Hemopurifier safety. Successful completion of the feasibility study will set the stage for Aethlon to conduct pivotal studies required for market clearance to treat HCV and other disease conditions.

Technology Today Radio: Apple (AAPL) giving us another reason to Give the Finger: Ajay Gupta interviews Biometrics Expert Gino Pereira, CEO of NXT-ID (NXTD)

New York, NY - September 26, 2013 (www.investorideas.com newswire) Investorideas.com, an investor research portal specializing in independent research in leading sectors including biometrics and mobile security stocks features a recent in interview with NXT-ID, Inc.(OTCQB: NXTD). Technology Today blog radio host Ajay Gupta interviews biometric expert Mr. Gino Pereira, CEO of NXT-ID (OTCQB: NXTD) to discuss recent developments in biometrics and how Apple (AAPL) is taking the lead in mobile security. Gino shares insight into what works now, what doesn’t work and the future of biometrics as it becomes mainstream technology.

Technology Today ;Apple giving us another reason to Give the Finger
Ajay Gupta interviews Gino Pereira, CEO of NXT-ID (OTCQB: NXTD )
Intro -
Apple's new OS, iOS 7, and two new phones, the iPhone 5c and 5s, have received a lot of attention. And they've sold 9 million phones in the first weekend of sales.
One feature that hasn't received as much discussion as may be deserved is the fingerprint biometric feature.  That's the kind of tech we like to discuss at Technology Today and we'll do that this Wednesday at 6pm EST.
Security is an ever growing concern and the 4-digit pass code is often more of an annoyance than a deterrent. Perhaps a finger tap approach, which we are used to anyway from opening apps, will do better? 
Some say this is a slippery slope that once we are accustomed to using our fingers, retina scanners, voice print and other more intrusive biometric approaches will become the norm.
The show discuses the pros and cons and takes a deeper look at the biometric teck. Gino Pereira, CEO of NXT-ID, is a recognized expert in the technology space having built start-ups across the world.  His current business, NXT-ID, is active in biometrics with special application in mobile payment security.

Medical Technology Q&A with Chairman and CEO of Aethlon Medical (OTCQB: AEMD) Discussing Launch of New Subsidiary, Exosome Sciences, Inc.

Point Roberts, WA, New York, NY - September 24, 2013 (Investorideas.com newswire) Investorideas.com, an investor research portal specializing in investing ideas in leading sectors including biotech and medical technology stocks, issues an exclusive Q&A with Jim Joyce, Chairman and CEO of Aethlon Medical, Inc. (OTCQB:AEMD). Mr. Joyce discusses the recent launch of its new Exosome Sciences, Inc. (ESI) and what that potentially represents to Aethlon and its shareholders.

Q: Investorideas.com
Jim on September 12 th you announced the formal launch of Exosome Sciences, Inc. (ESI), a wholly-owned subsidiary previously established by Aethlon. Can you tell investors the focus behind the subsidiary and why the timing was right to launch now?
A: Jim Joyce, Chairman and CEO
The rationale for launching Exosome Sciences was driven by the belief we could transform an unvalued asset into a substantially valued asset that would benefit our shareholders. As the focus of Aethlon Medical is therapeutic devices, the market had little reason to assign any value to candidate diagnostic products as our resources are going to be dedicated toward clinical progression and future commercialization of the Aethlon Hemopurifier® and other pipeline therapies. Especially, now that FDA has approved an IDE that allows us to initiate the first human clinical studies of our Hemopurifier® in the United States.
Still, it became increasingly clear that we needed to leverage our proprietary techniques to isolate and quantify exosomes before the window for related diagnostic innovation began to close. It was also hard to ignore the lofty valuations being awarded to other similar-stage molecular diagnostic organizations. So, we launched Exosome Sciences as a stand-alone entity and hired the best-known researchers in the exosome field to unlock the value of our technology and build an expansive pipeline of urine and blood based diagnostic products.
Q: Investorideas.com
Can you explain to investors what Exosomes are and how they play a role in cancer diagnostics and treatment?
A: Jim Joyce, Chairman and CEO
Sure, but I would first like to share that when we first initiated our exosome research programs, the vast majority of the medical community considered these particles to be nothing more than cellular debris with no biological function. In fact, at the time only a handful of labs were thinking about the role of exosomes. Today, it appears our early entry into the field may pay off as the medical community clearly recognizes that exosomes are vital therapeutic and diagnostic targets. In fact, there are now industry conferences and associations dedicated solely to exosome research.
As it relates to the exosome-related objectives of Aethlon Medical, we utilize our Hemopurifier® to target the elimination of circulating tumor-secreted exosomes as an adjunct therapy to improve cancer treatment outcomes. Our strategy addresses a significant unmet medical need as researchers have discovered that exosomes suppress the immune system of cancer patients and they facilitate tumor growth, seed the spread of metastasis, and contribute to drug resistance. Our hope is that exosome elimination saves lives by tipping the therapeutic balance in favor of the patient.
In regards to the diagnostic focus of our Exosome Sciences subsidiary, we are advancing exosome-based tools to better diagnose and monitor the progression of cancer and other life-threatening disease conditions. As it turns out, exosomes transport markers specific to the origin disease into bodily fluids, including the blood and urine where they can be easily assessed. Our objective is to introduce non-invasive liquid biopsies that can provide for the earliest detection or recurrence of cancer and other diseases. Our lead product is an assay that we named ELLSA. So far, ELLSA has been validated to identify the presence of exosomes underlying the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), tuberculosis (TB), and various forms of cancer, including ovarian, melanoma, and breast cancer.
Q: Investorideas.com
Exosome Diagnostics recently announced it entered into a collaboration agreement with Eli Lilly and Company (LLY) for biomarker discovery and validation using Exosome Diagnostics proprietary EXO50 nucleic acid extraction kit. Eli Lilly will gain early access to Exosome Diagnostics technology to help identify key gene mutations and expression levels in blood that may be correlated with drug response and disease recurrence.
Your core technology, the Aethlon Hemopurifer®, targets the rapid elimination of infectious disease and cancer glycopathogens, including exosomes from circulation. Can you tell us the synergies and benefits of having both a therapeutic technology and a diagnostic division working on such an important area of cancer research? And does having a diagnostic and therapeutic division so tightly focused give your company an edge?
A: Jim Joyce, Chairman and CEO
Excellent question. There is tremendous synergy as the advancements of Exosome Sciences have the potential to become companion diagnostic tools that determine when Hemopurifier® therapy should be administered. As an example, an assay able to detect exosomes underlying breast cancer might define the point when it would be appropriate to initiate Hemopurifier® therapy. This same assay would then be useful in monitoring patient response to therapy and could be utilized to optimize the administration of the Hemopurifier® and other therapeutic regimens.

Q: Investorideas.com
In closing, your company has achieved some significant milestones recently for Aethlon Hemopurifer®. For investors new to the company, can you give us the recent highlights?
A: Jim Joyce, Chairman and CEO
Since the beginning of the year, we have been extremely productive. Beyond the formal launch of Exosome Sciences, we formed a team that won a $22 million Department of Defense contract, we reported on positive Hepatitis C (HCV) treatment outcomes from studies conducted overseas, we expanded the potential indications of our Hemopurifier® in cancer, and disclosed the issuance of new patents that further protect our technologies.
However, the most significant milestone by far was FDA approval of an IDE that allows us to initiate clinical studies of HCV patients in the United States. While this took years of effort, the IDE approval unlocks the opportunity to demonstrate the value of our Hemopurifier® on the world’s most important clinical stage.

Biometrics Stocks Take Center Stage As Apple (AAPL) iPhone Sales Soar

New York, NY - September 23, 2013 (www.investorideas.com newswire) Investorideas.com, an investor portal specializing in sector research including biometrics and mobile security stocks, issues an updated directory for biometrics stocks following Apple’s report of selling over 9 Million iPhones over the weekend that incorporate biometric technology.

The new biometric Touch ID fingerprint technology has resulted in a new wave of interest in biometric technology and related stocks within the sector. Shares of Precise Biometrics, Fingerprint Cards, ImageWare Systems and NXT-ID, Inc have all benefited from the new buzz created by Apple’s implementation.
Additionally the biometric sector has made headlines as the Department of Homeland Security tests facial recognition technology and leading companies including Facebook (NASDAQ: FB) add facial recognition to their platforms .
Apple Reviews
Walter S. Mossberg of The Wall Street Journal recommends iPhone 5s "for anyone looking for a premium, advanced smartphone." He calls the phone’s Touch ID fingerprint sensor "a potentially game-changing hardware feature" and iOS 7 "a radically new operating system."
Ed Baig of USA Today looks at both iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c. On the iPhone 5s, he writes, "Taken in totality, the features new to the iPhone 5s make what I consider to be the best smartphone on the market even better." He concludes, "I can strongly recommend either new iPhone but especially the 5s."
David Pogue of The New York Times posts two stories. In his iOS review he writes, "The structure, layout and features represent some of Apple’s best work." In his iPhone review, he calls iPhone 5c "a terrific phone," noting, "The price is right. It will sell like hot cakes." On iPhone 5s, he’s impressed with the improved camera and says the best part of Touch ID is "it actually works — every single time, in my tests. It’s nothing like the balky, infuriating fingerprint-reader efforts of earlier cellphones."

Entertainment Alert: Interview with Award Winning Producer, Rhode Island Businessman and Investor Chad A. Verdi; Betting on the Best and Taking Risks

New York, NY, Point Roberts, WA - September 19, 2013 (www.investorideas.com newswire Entertainment and Financial alert) Investorideas.com, an investor research portal specializing in sector research for independent investors features an interview with and insight into entrepreneurial producer, businessman and investor Chad A. Verdi of Rhode Island. A self-made businessman, Chad always takes big risks and passionately vests himself in each endeavor he takes on.  From his role as an award winning producer and film-maker over the past decade, to now taking on a role as the largest investor in biometric mobile security company NXT-ID, Inc., (OTCQB: NXTD) Chad lives by the motto "go big or go home".

Q&A Interview
Q: Investorideas.com
Chad you are the American dream in action with your multiple roles in business. Can you give us some background and history of your entrepreneurial journey?
A:Chad A. Verdi
At 18 years old I acquired my first business, a Rhode Island television listing newspaper called TV Facts, which is still in publication today.
In the years leading up to the age of 21 I acquired several other businesses in the food service sector throughout RI. By age 30, I owned, co-owned, served as principal or had investments in over a dozen businesses that ranged from the food industry and toy manufacturing to restaurants and hi-tech developments in the biotechnology field and nuclear waste management.
Over the last 15 years, I have been involved in over $1 billion of business mergers, reverse mergers, start-ups and acquisitions. I currently own, co-own or have investments in more than two dozen businesses in diversified industries with more than 1000 local employees and sales of more than $100 million nationwide.
I also hold a large real estate portfolio that includes the 175-year-old former United Methodist Church in East Greenwich where the constitution of RI was adopted.
Through my production companies, Verdi Productions and Woodhaven Production Company , I have produced six featured films over the last 38 months
In July 2013, I became the largest independent shareholder in the biometric mobile security company NXT-ID, Inc. (OTCQB: NXTD) (http://nxt-id.com/). This is my newest venture outside the film industry.
Q- Investorideas.com
I think the first question for anyone looking at the diverse background in business is what motivates you and what do you look for in a business venture?
A: Chad A. Verdi
What motivates me is being able too look outside the box, seeing things others can't or are overlooking. When you can achieve that, the sky's the limit on what your maximum potential in an investment can be. In the case of NXT-ID, Inc , they have the products in a space that I feel has huge potential. Mobile security is what everyone is talking about now; it's a very hot sector. Their 3D facial recognition is leading technology. Their first product, the Wocket, which is launching this fall, sets the stage for the roll-out of their Mobile suite of products. Just like my other investments in Apple and Yahoo, they were leaders in their respective markets and being first pays off big time!
Q- Investorideas.com
In respect to your role as film-maker and producer, can you give us some background on your companies Verdi Productions (VP) and The Woodhaven Production Company?
A: Chad A. Verdi
My production company, VP was founded in 2009 as an independent and fully-funded media production company based in New York City and RI. We just completed our sixth feature film within the last 38 months, 'A Bets a Bet'. VP will produce the bigger budget films while The Woodhaven Production Company focuses on films under 2.5 million dollars. Both companies are positioning themselves to be serious contenders in the film industry.
Q- Investorideas.com
For a new company in the entertainment industry, you have attracted some very impressive names and talent to your team. I just read that you signed Oscar winners Martin Scorsese and Bruce Cohen along with Ben Younger and Emma Tillinger Koskoff to your next project (Bleed for This). How excited are you about working with them and how did all of this come about?
A: Chad A. Verdi
I am extremely excited about the caliber of talent attached to this project. This film is the reason my wife Michelle, (head of music and talent) and I got involved in this business. Having Ben, Martin, Bruce, and Emma involved elevates this project to a whole new level. It all started with the great script Ben wrote, the writer/director and the leader of our team. He is a true gem.
Q- Investorideas.com
Your recent investment in NXTD-Inc. is in a sector that is making all the headlines now as Apple talks about biometrics technology for its smartphones. When did you first get involved as an investor and what inspired you to take the risk? What are some examples of other stocks in your current portfolio?
A: Chad A. Verdi
I started investing in NXT-ID, Inc over a year ago, knowing it was a huge risk if the company could not deliver on what they stated they could. My best scenario was correct and they delivered on their first revenue stream in biometrics, then delivered on becoming public and soon they will deliver their first of its kind 'digital wallet' prototype of the Wocket. They have taken a different approach with Wocket; reducing the number of cards in your wallet while supporting virtually every payment method currently available at retailers around the world. I bought both Apple ( AAPL) and Yahoo (YHOO) at very low prices. I feel NXT-ID has the same upside potential as those two did in their early stages.
Q- Investorideas.com
In closing what is on the horizon for you as both a film-maker and an investor?
A: Chad A. Verdi
The Bleed for This project, is very important to me and my family. Bleed For This tells the true-life story of world champion Rhode Island boxer Vinny Pazienza as he recovers from a near fatal car accident and goes on to win three additional world boxing titles, one of the most incredible and dramatic comebacks in sports history. We want Vinny's story told to share his great achievement with the world.
As an investor, NXT-ID, Inc (OTCQB: NXTD) could change the world we live in as we all go mobile. That's pretty cool!
About the Verdi Productions and Woodhaven Production Company:
Both Verdi Productions and The Woodhaven Production Company are fully funded film production companies, covering all aspects of filmmaking - from conception of script through postproduction.

Q&A with Steve Yuzpe of Sprott Resource Corp Discussing Agriculture and Water

New York, NY, Point Roberts, WA - September 18, 2013 (Investorideas.com Water Stocks Newswire) Investorideas.com, an investor research portal specializing in sector research for independent investors including water and agriculture stocks issues an exclusive interview with Mr. Steve Yuzpe, Chief Financial Officer at Sprott Resource Corp. Mr. Yuzpe provides insight into global trends and opportunities within the sectors.
Q: Investorideas.com
Where do you see the biggest opportunities in agriculture and can you give us some of the publicly traded companies you like?
A: Steve Yuzpe of Sprott Resource Corp
Sprott Resource Corp. is the private equity group within the Sprott Group of Companies ... so public stocks are not my specialty.
That said, the Ag sectors that we like are fertilizers (especially phosphate), healthy food themes and water
Q: Investorideas.com
Outside of traditional agriculture companies and related suppliers like seeds, fertilizer and transportation do you see agriculture getting more into technology, for example water management and treatment technologies within the actual umbrella of an Ag company?
A: Steve Yuzpe of Sprott Resource Corp
Yes. I think technology and water management will be very important sub-sectors within the agriculture sector.
Technology: has to be part of the solution to deal with the increase in primary production required to feed the planet in the next 40 years. The population will grow by 40 – 50%, but the global grain and oilseed production will need to increase by 80 – 100%. Technology will impact every aspect of primary production (for example, off the top of my head, seed genetics, variable rate farming, farm machinery (smart, auto-steer seeding units), efficient / secure storage, water extraction, enhanced food preservation, etc.)
Water: 70% of global water use is from agriculture and significantly more water will be required to increase global production. Improvements in technology, awareness and conservation are all part of the solution. There is absolutely no substitute for water at any price.
Q: Investorideas.com
How do you see the global eating trends of organic, vegetarian and vegan impacting agriculture, for an example the growing shift from sugar to alternatives like stevia?
A: Steve Yuzpe of Sprott Resource Corp
The trend in wealthy countries is an increase in 'healthy diets' ... I think the themes of organic, hormone free, antibiotic free, nitrate free, grass fed, etc. are poised to gain mindshare of consumers, which should lead to investment opportunities.
Q: Investorideas.com
I have read that countries in the Middle East and China have bought up agricultural lands with water rights globally in anticipation of drought and bigger issues in food supplies from climate change. How will that impact the global picture long term?
A: Steve Yuzpe of Sprott Resource Corp
The counties you mention have to deal with the very real threats of food security and food inflation. The rise in commodity prices has already contributed to the overthrow of regimes in the Middle East and in the last 5-years has led to riots across from Bahrain all the way to Morocco and is driving up costs in China and India.
The way that water is priced and managed globally leads us to believe that localized water shortages are inevitable. As mentioned above, Canada is lucky that we have significant water resources.
Opportunities exist because agriculture is facing serious issues in the near and long-term. We will likely solve some of the issues we are facing, but I don’t see how we can solve them all.
The long-term impact is tough to predict. All over the world there has been a strong pushback against foreign buyers of farmland.
Q: Investorideas.com
Are you looking at South American opportunities and if so where? For example I published an article from another writer recently entitled “It’s a good time to buy land in Argentina”, based on falling coffee and sugar prices .
A: Steve Yuzpe of Sprott Resource Corp
We like certain jurisdictions in South America and would definitely avoid others. Our investment style considers geopolitical risk, currency risk, etc., in addition to return profile of the investment. For example, we have a large position in Union Agriculture Group, a large farming operation in Uruguay. We also have a large position in Stonegate Agricom, which has a phosphate deposit in Peru.
Q: Investorideas.com
What will be the driving force to get more investors into agriculture and water? Do you think like a lot of other sectors, that it will be event driven (water shortages, drought, and contamination) or simply pocket book related as prices rise?
A: Steve Yuzpe of Sprott Resource Corp
The agriculture segment is much smaller than other investment sectors. To bring more investors into the sector, we also need to build and develop more companies and products to invest in.
It could legitimately be from either event driven or market driven (inflation protection) event, but likely it is from a linked event. A geopolitical or production crisis (weather, etc.) would start prices to rise and fear and greed would exacerbate the price moves.
Q: Investorideas.com
Where do you think Canada fits into the global market?
A: Steve Yuzpe of Sprott Resource Corp
Long term, Canada has a very important role to play in primary food production ... a large arable land base, already a net exporter of production (with a small population, so little chance that production will be held back from export in a food crisis), significant water resources, geopolitical stability, infrastructure is in place, experienced farmers and a system of strong food safety standards.
About Steve Yuzpe, Chief Financial Officer
Mr. Yuzpe has over 10 years of financial administration management experience with public and private corporations. Over his career, Mr. Yuzpe has developed specific expertise in financial and internal reporting, strategic development and business planning, corporate governance, investor relations, regulatory compliance, treasury, financings and restructurings. Since 2009, Mr. Yuzpe has served as the Chief Financial Officer of Sprott Resource Corp., and is currently the chairman of One Earth Farms Corp., as well as a director of One Earth Oil and Gas Inc.

He was also a founding board member of Inroads to Agriculture Institute, an organization whose mission is to help Aboriginal people secure full time employment in the agricultural industry through training and employment support.

Mr. Yuzpe is also a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) charter holder.

The Most Important and Influential Event in the Small Cap Deal Market for the Past 10 Years

Woodbury, NY - September 17, 2013 (www.investorideas.com newswire) The PIPEs Conference has been the most important and influential event in the Small Cap deal market for the past 10 years. This year the event will be held at The Westin Times Square on November 4th.

A decade ago when when DealFlow launched The PIPEs Conference we had no idea how influential this event would become. Although the markets have changed, the event has stayed true to its original goal - to provide an unparalleled forum for education and networking. This year the event returns to its roots in New York City to celebrate The 10th Annual PIPEs Conference.
A DealFlow Event in Association with The Deal:
The DealFlow Report has recently been incorporated into The Street's institutional platform, The Deal. The Deal provides subscribers with world-class coverage of large and mid-cap M&A transactions and small cap finance transactions. The event will be marketed to The Deal's extensive network of personal and institutional investors worldwide, which provides an opportunity to network with a completely new group of market players.
This year's event will feature all of the topics of importance to professionals in the small-cap equity market. The agenda will cover more than just direct investments and PIPEs. It will include sessions on reverse mergers and SPACs, stock trading issues, legal issues, and the latest funding structures. Ample time will also be given to discuss how technology is changing the market, including the migration from traditional brokerage businesses to online funding portals, and what the new regulatory landscape means for issuers, investors, and intermediaries. Specific agenda topics include:
  • The Recent Resurgence of PIPE Deals: Who's Transacting, Under What Terms, and a Discussion on Sustainability
  • SPACs: The 2013/2014 Environment for Launching Special Purpose Acquisition Companies
  • Reverse Mergers: New Deal Structures to Avoid Shell Status, Examining the Recent Crop of Companies and what's made some of them Successful

Mining Stock Inception Mining (OTCQB:IMII) Reports Deal to ACQUIRE 16,000 NET ACRES in Getchell Trend Acreage, Adjacent to Turquoise Ridge Property-Joint Holding of Barrick (NYSE:ABX) and Newmont (NYSE:NEM)

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH - September 17, 2013 (Investorideas.com Mining stocks newswire) Mining stock alert- Inception Mining Inc. (OTCQB: IMII) reported that it has entered into an agreement in principal with Crawford Cattle Company ("Crawford") to acquire over 16,000 net acres of mineral rights in Humboldt and Elko Counties, Nevada, approximately 70 miles north of Winnemucca, Nevada.  The acreage lies in or is adjacent to the historic Getchell Trend which is part of the property now under contract to be purchased.  Assuming the due diligence and other covenants are satisfied, the acquisition is expected to close no later than the second quarter 2014 of which there is no guarantee.

According to the Company's CEO, Michael Ahlin: "We believe the lands to be acquired are deemed highly prospective given their general location in the Getchell Trend. Specifically, we are under contract to acquire sections of lands that are adjacent to the Turquoise Ridge Property, the Pinson Mine and a lesser amount of acreage near the history Midas Gold Property.  The Turquoise Ridge Property is a joint holding of Barrick Gold Corporation (NYSE:ABX) and Newmont Mining Corporation (NYSE:NEM).”  At this stage, the Company has not determined or committed to a plan of development and is just now beginning its resource evaluation and long term potential.

The Company is focused on identifying certain historical mining claims that fit strict parameters of proven recoverable grades of minerals, minimal permitting issues, deeded or protected claims, access, acquisition costs that fit our profile and potential refining needs requiring minimal CAPEX or possible toll processing.  While the above potential acquisition is a departure from our stated objectives, the opportunity presented must be explored and evaluated as a possible addition to our portfolio of properties.

About Inception Mining Inc . (OTCQB: IMII) We are a mining exploration company engaged in the acquisition, exploration, and development of mineral properties, primarily for high grade gold deposits, from owned mining properties.  Our primary target properties are those that have been the subject of historical exploration and have supporting data. Most large visible surface gold mineralized prospects have been explored, mined. What remains are the smaller high-grade mines and prospects previously ignored. www.inceptionmining.com

Turquoise Ridge

The Turquoise Ridge property is located about 70 kilometres northeast of Winnemucca, Nevada, USA. Barrick is the operator and 75% owner of the mine with Newmont owning the remaining 25%.

Turquoise Ridge uses underhand cut-and-fill mining methods due to the relatively low rock quality in the ore zones. Ore is transported to Newmont's Twin Creeks mill for processing. The refractory gold ore is treated by pressure oxidation technology and gold is recovered using conventional carbon-in-leach technology.

In 2009, Turquoise Ridge's production totaled 177koz ounces of gold at total cash costs of $570 per ounce1. Proven and probable mineral reserves as of December 31, 2009 are estimated at 5.47moz of gold.
