Americans use massive amounts of oil. Although we make up only 5% of the world’s population, the U.S. burns 25% of the Earth's oil production. America characterizes the oil-dependent lifestyle.

Oil is the raw material that makes the functioning possible of nearly every element of the U.S. economy, directly or indirectly. It supplies 40% of the nation’s power supply—way above any other source. Oil gives power to our industries, gives heat to our buildings, and supplies the raw material for plastics, paints, textiles, and many more materials. But it is in our transportation that oil is most important.

Oil supplies 97% of the fuel consumed by America’s gigantic fleet of trucks, trains, planes, ships, buses and cars.

We have based our entire way of life on a non-renewable resource that may run out within the next 30 years. All other alternative energy sources will not be able to replace oil any time soon. But Americans continue on as if there is an endless supply of oil, as they buy bigger and more cars and drive longer distances from non energy-efficient suburban developments.

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

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

Many farmers in Kentucky are trading in their tractors and overalls for oil derricks and wildcatting gear. With the price of oil reaching an all time high and the family farm becoming more and more obsolete, the attraction of getting rich by striking oil on the family's back forty is becoming harder and harder to resist. And not without promise, with current geological readings estimating that nearly five billion barrels of oil reserves could be tucked away near Kentucky's famed coal mines of old.

Proper Power & Energy is an independent exploration and production company. The Company's operations are in Kentucky, which provides for low risk developmental drilling and production, and Utah, which the Company controls over 11,000 acres for its exploratory prospect. Renowned geophysicist and consultant to Proper Power, Robert Dunbar, believes the Utah prospect could hold up to one billion barrels of recoverable oil.

Orofino Gold Corp. (ORFG.PK) is a China based Gold and Silver Exploration Company founded as a private company in 2009 by former executives with over 50 cumulative years in mining exploration, finance, and development expertise. Orofino’s corporate objective is to continue to build shareholder value through the exploration and development of Senderos de Oro and additional accretive acquisitions, capitalizing on the extensive experience and relationships that management has developed over the past 25 years.

La Azul is one producing artesanal mine in the Senderos de Oro area controlled by Orofino, it is a mixed sequence of predominantly volcanic rocks with the vien systems comprised of high grade chalcopyrite, galena and sphalerite with pyrite in quartz viens.

Exploration Potential – La Azul and San Carlos ProgramsSenderos de Oro Area

Geologically similar to Angostura and Ventana but higher grade, open at depth and to the west toward La Azul.

The observed metallogenic zonation around Senderos de Oro evokes a very viable "hidden porphyry" exploration model. Based upon exploration carried out to date, it is clear that the area hosts significant resources of gold, copper and silver, which, facilitated by the current database and favorable topography, has generated excellent "fast-trackable" bulk-tonnage or high-grade underground Au-Ag-Cu exploration targets.

The Senderos de Oro Project is comprised of more than 3000 hectares of Gold and other mineral concessions in the minera mining area of central Sur de Bolivar. The Project resembles the La Bodega and Vetas California Projects, currently being explored and developed by Canadian Exploration Company Ventana Gold, for which EBX recently extended an unsolicited tender offer of $1.3 Billion.
