America needs an equally balanced energy policy that helps promote energy efficiency, conservation and a greater supply of all forms of energy, including domestic oil and natural gas. The industry has proven it can make these resources safely and in an environmentally responsible manner in all areas, including on non-park federal lands.

Producing these resources from federal lands is vital to providing energy resources that are vital to grow the U.S. economy, enhance U.S. energy security, stimulate the creation of new high-paying American jobs, increase funds to the federal, state and local governments and improve the U.S. balance of trade.

Proper Power & Energy, Inc. (OTCBB:PPWE.OB), a Tampa-based independent oil and gas exploration and production company, has announced the next stage of its Western U.S. operations. The Company met with the executives of Thrust Resources Inc. and EQ Resources Inc. in Dallas, Texas on January 20, 2011. The meeting focused on a joint venture for the Central Utah Prospect between the Companies. This was the initial meeting between Clint Brower, CEO and Chairman of EQ Resources, and Andrew Kacic, the newly named President of Proper Power & Energy Inc.

The next steps will be circulating a memorandum of understanding followed upon definitive agreements. “We look forward to expedite future discussions of both Companies working together to mutually reach our Utah objectives,” stated Andrew Kacic.

The state of Utah is ranked 13th in the country in crude oil production and 9th in natural gas gross production (Energy Information Administration; rankings based on 2008 production, not including Federal Offshore production areas). There are approximately 9,100 wells currently in production within the state.

Proper Power & Energy announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, American Resources, Inc. (NYSE:ARI), has begun production on its 87.5 acres in Western Kentucky.

Kentucky’s existing oil and gas infrastructure is extensive. Finding and production costs are low due to the occurrence of shallow resources. Kentucky is centrally located for access and distribution to northern and eastern industrial markets.

ARI has completed the re-work on all 4 wells, with those wells online and pumping. “This is an exciting day for us,” stated Proper Power President, Andrew Kacic. “This is the beginning of production for Proper Power in Kentucky, and we look forward to increasing our presence.”

Global Hunter Corp. (TSX.V: BOB) (FSE:G5D) has built an outstanding portfolio of projects in the stable geopolitical geographies of Canada and Chile. Our exploration and development teams are on the ground rapidly advancing the La Corona de Cobre property near La Serena, Chile and the Rabbit South property in British Columbia, Canada. Either one of these projects could carry the company forward on a stand-alone basis, but together they bring the company additional stability, strength and value.

Global Hunter’s La Corona de Cobre project is over 18,000 hectares of land located in the Coast Range of the Andean Cordillera, Chile, an area often referred to as the Chilean Iron Belt. The property is on the Pan American Highway, 70-kilometres north of the port city La Serena.

Global Hunter’s Rabbit South molybdenum project is located within a prolific mining region in the Dominic and Roper Lake area, 27 kilometres west-southwest of the city of Kamloops British Columbia. The property is accessible year round by a combination of highway and logging roads. Rabbit South is situated 25 kilometres northeast of Highland Valley, BC’s largest porphyry copper mine (1.4 billion tonnes @ 0.40% Cu) and 12 kilometres southwest of Afton, BC’s richest porphyry copper mine (107Mi tonnes @ 1.05% Cu, 0.70g/t Au).

Copper is easily stretched, molded, and shaped; is resistant to corrosion; and conducts heat and electricity efficiently. As a result, copper was important to early humans and continues to be a material of choice for a variety of domestic, industrial, and high-technology applications today.

Molybdenum is used efficiently and economically in alloy steel & iron to:
- improve hardenability
- reduce temper embrittlement
- resist hydrogen attack & sulphide stress cracking
- increase elevated temperature strength
- improve weldability, especially in high strength low alloy steels (HSLA)

Global Hunter Corp. engages in the acquisition, exploration, and development of mineral properties in Canada and Chile. It primarily explores for gold, copper, and base and precious metals. The company was founded in 1988 and is headquartered in Vancouver, Canada.
