Sierra Resource Group, Inc. (SIRG)
OTCPicks reported previously on Sierra Resource Group, Inc. (SIRG), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Sierra Resource Group, Inc. is a mining enterprise whose commitment is to the exploration, discovery and development of gold, silver, copper, and other mineral resources. Looking to expand throughout the Americas, the Company currently holds mining properties and mineral claims in Arizona. Sierra Resource Group has their headquarters in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Company's shares trade on the OTC Bulletin Board.
Sierra currently owns 80 percent of the Chloride Copper Mine. The Company is focusing on developing this property. The Chloride Copper Mine is located 24 kilometers northwest of Kingman, in the Wallapai District, Mohave County, Arizona, near the town of Chloride. The property consists of 37 unpatented lode mining claims and 12 millsite claims. An open pit mine and the existing SXEW processing plant operated at the site from 1995 before being idled in 1996 because of low copper prices.
Copper mineralization at the Chloride Copper Mine property is in the form of mineralized lenses contained within a paleochannel a few thousands of feet long and up to 750 feet wide. The source of copper is interpreted to be the low grade porphyry-type copper mineralization at Alum Wash, approximately 3.5 miles northeast of the Emerald Isle deposit. On December 1, 2012, a revised Mine Plan of Operation was resubmitted to the Bureau of Land Management (BLM).
The principal work of Sierra Resource Group is to acquire the necessary funding to bring the Chloride Copper Mine into production so the Company can generate working capital from the operation. As of their November 14, 2012, Quarterly Report, the Company received initial assay results from their Chloride Copper Mine (AKA Emerald Isle Mine) drill program on the tailings impoundment at their Chloride Copper Mine Property.
The copper grade ranged from a minimum of 0.16 percent Cu to a maximum of 0.43 percent Cu with the average being 0.36 percent Cu. The report also estimated the tailings to contain approximately 1.2 million tons of material. The copper distribution looks to be consistent over all the samples collected from the tailings impoundment.
The tailings are the waste product from the previous operation of the Emerald Isle Mine from 1943 to 1973. This was when copper recovery was substantially lower than recovery rates available with today's technology. The goal of this tailings program is to ascertain whether the tailings can be economically mined and processed to recover the contained copper in them.
Sierra Resource Group, Inc. (SIRG), closed Wednesday's trading session at $0.005, down 3.85%, on 2,225,000 volume with 8 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 956,695 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0015/$0.0145.

Today before the opening bell, VIASPACE provided the investor community with an update on the Tibbar Energy 7 MW anaerobic digestion power plant project. As reported by the St. Croix Source last week, Mr. Hugo Hodge, executive director of the Virgin Islands Water and Power Authority (WAPA), stated that the authority was nearing a purchase agreement with Tibbar Energy, a proposed biomass electricity company on St. Croix. Hodge said that, in a few years, St. Croix will have 10 MW of electricity coming from industrial solar, 5 MW from net metering and 7 MW from Tibbar, for a total of 22 MW being produced by alternative sources. He estimated that at peak consumption, the St. Croix grid only needed 45 MW, which means the WAPA power plant would only need to supply an additional 23 MW.
Tibbar continues to plant Giant King™ Grass nurseries, and aims to create a 1,000+ acre plantation to fuel the 7 MW anaerobic digestion power plant. The company is currently testing irrigation options and large scale planting procedures. “We have started to develop an impressive farming operation in preparation of our finalized power purchase agreement (PPA),” stated Tibbar CEO Tania Tomyn. “We have purchased tractors and additional equipment. We are proud of our new farm staff and they are integral to the progress so far.”
Tomyn continued, “As WAPA stated in the St. Croix Source article, there is a lot of work that goes into balancing Tibbar’s base load power with WAPA’s. Tibbar will be unlike intermittent wind and solar as we will produce continuous dispatchable power 24/7. Our computer system will be tied to WAPA’s and will use the latest technology to efficiently work together.”
Tibbar is also educating the public and generating awareness on a variety of levels. For example, on April 17th and 18th, Tibbar sponsored and presented at the St. Croix Earth Day Eco-Fair. According to Tibbar CEO Tania Tomyn and Farm Manager Bob Peets, “We educated hundreds of children from dozens of St. Croix schools about renewable energy. Tibbar was the major sponsor and we had a fantastic turn out teaching children about Giant King Grass and why bio-energy crops are part of our future.”
VIASPACE Chairman, Dr. Kevin Schewe, commented, “Giant King Grass is growing incredibly well in St. Croix and our partnership with Tibbar Energy is progressing nicely. The planned 7 MW anaerobic digestion power plant using Giant King Grass to create continuous, eco-friendly, carbon neutral, green electricity on St. Croix is already demonstrating intangible benefits of educating children about the merits of renewable green energy and has attracted tourists interested in green energy.”
“We believe that using Giant King Grass as a continuously renewable biomass/bioenergy platform is the perfect green solution for the energy needs of tropical island nations and our partnership with Tibbar Energy can prove this concept on St. Croix in the very near future,” Schewe added. “This project paves the way for other island economies to model similar green electricity projects using Giant King Grass. Every day at VIASPACE, we grow more excited about our future corporate role and place in the evolution of economically viable and successful green energy production.”

The Aristocrat Group, a brand management corporation currently focused on distilled spirits, today said CEO Robert Federowicz will get a sneak preview of the new film Killing Time, which will feature the company’s Luxuria Brands vodka as part of an advertising campaign with film production company Outpost Media.
Federowicz will travel to California later this week for a private screening of the Hollywood film, an unconventional horror film shot outside Toronto. The film is the first of three pictures that will feature the vodka as part of an advertising and product placement deal signed last year between ASCC and Outpost Media.
“This film is going to be a fantastic platform to introduce our new line of spirits,” Federowicz stated in the press release. “Best of all, it’s only the first step in a media strategy that includes product placement, sponsored promotional events and social media awareness campaigns designed to spread the word about Luxuria Brands.”
Luxuria Brands is ASCC’s new management and sustainability branding firm, currently focused on building a brand identity around the company’s new top-shelf vodka line. The brand will later expand into related industries such as luxury, music and event planning.
