Mining Stocks; TurkPower Corporation (OTC.BB: TRKP) Announces Agreement With Beneficiation Plant Manufacturer and Commencement of Mining Operations at Its Kuluncak Site

NEW YORK, NY - July 21, 2011 (Investorideas.com Mining stocks Newswire) - TurkPower Corporation (OTC.BB:TRKP) (the "Company") is pleased to announce the signing of a cooperation agreement between its subsidiary Maksor Madencilik Sanayi Ve Ticaret Anonim Sirketi (hereafter "Maxore") with the Austrian beneficiation plant manufacturer The Standard GmbH ("Standard") for its Kuluncak iron ore project. TurkPower and Maxore will be closely cooperating with Standard in engineering, research and development, project development and product development of machinery and equipment for its Kuluncak project as well as other mining projects in the future.
The first beneficiation plant for the Kuluncak iron ore mine is a mobile dry beneficiation plant with a capacity of 48,000 - 60,000 tons per month and will be operational by August 2011. In a second phase, a wet beneficiation plant will be installed at the Kuluncak site, allowing for wet beneficiation and higher capacity as early as April 2012. Standard's beneficiation technology and equipment increases the Kuluncak iron ore grade from 58 - 62% to 62 - 65% Fe content.
Open-pit mining operations commenced at the Kuluncak site in May after more than two years of exploration study, ore extraction planning, machinery and equipment selection, waste dump site selection and planning, and ore extraction designing from narrow veins, tabular and massive deposits utilizing mechanized methods. The Company will report soon in more detail about its projected iron ore production and sales for 2011.
About the Kuluncak Property
The Kuluncak iron ore mine is an open-pit mine, which can be operated from April/May to November and is expected to produce 550,000 metric tons of iron ore per season. According to a two-year feasibility study conducted in 2008 and 2009, the mine has estimated reserves of 20,900,000 metric tons for a net value of approximately $3bn based on current market price for 58 - 62%-grade iron ore. The feasibility study was conducted by one of the world's leading mining companies, which concluded: "The project offers great value for money if a small mine is what one is looking for." The mine has been operational since June 2011, and has more than 140,000 metric tons of iron ore in inventory which will be sold starting in August. The Company expects to sell a total of up to 220,000 tons of iron ore in 2011, and further increase production in the following years.
