Mirabela Nickel Ltd. is a nickel producer, operating one of the world's largest open pit nickel sulphide mines, located in Brazil. The Santa Rita deposit is the largest nickel sulphide discovery in more than a decade and the aggressive development schedule, from discovery to first production in five years, is testament to the deposit's location close to essential infrastructure, the simple process flowsheet and the pro-mining environment of Brazil. Mirabela Nickel has their corporate headquarters in Perth, Western Australia. The Company lists on the Toronto Stock Exchange.
The Santa Rita operation is producing a high quality metal concentrate via a state of the art nickel flotation processing plant. It is supported by an open pit with a current mine life of 23 years. A strong, globally experienced management team underpins all this. Mirabela Nickel also has several near-mine and regional exploration prospects that have the potential to provide additional, organic growth.
The Santa Rita Operation consists of a simple, low cost, primarily owner-operated, open pit drill and blast, load and haul mining operation. It feeds the conventional, low technology nickel sulphide concentration plant. The operation is approximately 260 kms southwest of Salvador, the capital of Bahia in Brazil, approximately 6 kms from the town of Ipiaú, which supplies the majority of the operation's workers and 140 kms from Ilhéus, the deepwater port from which Mirabela Nickel exports their nickel concentrate to Norilsk Nickel.
The Company acquired the Santa Rita deposit in 2004 and completed commissioning of the operation in October 2009.

The mineralization is typically characterized by ﬁne, granular aggregates of nickel and copper sulphides.
Mirabela Nickel is targeting 19,000 to 21,000 tonnes of nickel in concentrate with cash unit costs expected to move towards US$6.00/lb by the end of 2012. Capital expenditures for 2012 are forecast at US$60M of which US$18.5M has been spent to March 31, 2012. The Company has reduced their annual production guidance range by 1,000 tonnes in response to the low grades mined during the first quarter.
Last month, Mirabela Nickel announced their unaudited first quarter results for the period ended March 31, 2012.

Lithium is a silver-white, lightweight, heat-resistant metal.

Sample testing conducted in 2011 has shown 70 - 85 ppm lithium. Other minerals include calcium, magnesium, iodine, bromine, and potassium.

The key to making this superb platform of hardware the ultimate solution for exclusive, premiere limousine service to pro athletes, celebrities, and international superstars, however, is the talent pool.

First Titan, which has assembled an impressive portfolio of domestic acreage positions and which continually seeks to expand that portfolio as a global oil/gas, exploration/development company via their wholly-owned subsidiary, First Titan Energy, LLC, reported rather auspicious early production results from a very close analog to their Breaux #2 well in Logan County, Oklahoma.
It seems the new horizontal well is a hallmark of the company’s future success in the region, showcasing the true potential of the Breaux #2 horizontal well (announced Apr 10, making it FTTN’s fourth working interest acquired so far this year) and offering investors a tantalizing look into the profit window for this gem, which only requires completion (already drilled and cased).
Back in April, Osage Exploration and Development, one of FTTN’s competitors in this region of the U.S., reported initial production on their Wolf 1-29 horizontal well over in Kay County. With an 85/15 mix of oil/gas coming up the pipe on Wolf 1-29, Osage saw in excess of 876 BPD on average throughout the first 30 days of production, as well as a whopping 1,185 BPD in the initial 72-hour period.
But check this out, the some 10k foot (5,816 down and 4,101 out) Wolf 1-29 was set up with a rather conventional multi-stage fracturing job. Breaux #2 on the other hand was designed and is being engineered for completion around the revolutionary new QuickFRAC® technology from Packers Plus, a unique and truly innovative solution that allows for huge time, efficiency, and productivity improvements to be achieved.
QuickFRAC uses an ingenious ball triggering system and array of QuickPORT™ sleeves and RockSEAL® II packers to obtain incredible workflow improvements, allowing operators to engineer a complex, multi-stage frac job, fracturing 60 stages downhole while the operator only has to pump 15 treatments from the surface. A special trigger ball is dropped downhole to close the Toe Circulation Sub, allowing pressure to build up, setting the RockSEAL packers and effectively sectioning up the wellbore into isolated stages with ease (additional triggers are fed down to setup the rest of the sections). A single pumping treatment on the surface resulting in precise directing to 2-5 stages downhole results in vastly improved pumping time and costs for the operator, while improving overall production yields/volumes.
The excellent results from Osage’s analogous well have bolstered confidence at FTTN considerably regarding the expectations for Breaux #2. Bedford Energy, Inc. engineered the Breaux #2 and places well completion within 30-60 days of funding.
With juicy figures like 160k barrels of oil and 1.5M metric cubic feet of gas to be had (according to the Petroleum Engineers reserve report), potential production could exceed $14M.
This marks another brilliant play by FTTN for their domestic resource portfolio and shareholders will be keen to see results from Breaux #2 (5,600 feet down and 2,300 feet out into the Hunton Clarita pay zone), whose addition to the other three working interests acquired by the company already this year (Alabama, Louisiana, and Texas), makes the company increasingly attractive in its category to potential investors. The embracing of QuickFRAC is a good example of how FTTN is thinking ahead and moving to develop new solutions for a growing global energy market, as the company steps up to the plate alongside major global players like Anadarko Petroleum and Chesapeake Energy.

Brownie’s Marine Group, developer, manufacturer, and distributor of highly specialized dive and safety products, today announced that it has sped-up the testing of an application of Molecular Impact Energy (MIE) for the marine industry, for which it has exclusive rights.
Brownie’s said it plans on seeking venture partners to pursue the potential commercialization of the MIE invention, which the company says has the potential to “significantly change the current limitations of steam engines and steam propulsion and usher in innovation incorporating new material technology and state-of-the-art computerized intelligent control systems that will leverage and amplify this technology.”
Robert Carmichael, Brownie’s CEO, said that while the testing is still in its beginning stages, the company believes the invention may be adaptable to steam-power several types of watercraft.
“We are excited about moving forward on this project and have designed, and are in the final phases of constructing a test platform incorporating a proven steam engine “block” that incorporates the MIE “boiler-free” steam generation system utilizing a computer controlled MIE injector and chamber,” Carmichael stated in the press release. “Although testing is in its initial phases, we believe the MIE process has the potential to be more energy efficient for converting water into steam than a conventional boiler system. The preliminary MIE design, if successful, suggests that the system might be readily adaptable to small through large size yachts, commercial vessels, and island communities for direct or steam-electric drive systems and electric power production.”
If successful, Brownie says the MIE will eliminate the need for a conventional boiler, thereby creating a more competitive steam alternative to the current diesel-based systems.
