Orofino Gold Corp. (ORFG.PK) was founded as a private company in 2009 by former executives and management with over 50 years of combined mining exploration, finance, and development experience. Orofino’s corporate objective is to increase shareholder value through the continued development of existing projects and additional acquisitions of high-value mineral assets.

La Azul (formerly La Estrella) is an artisanal gold production mine in the Senderos de Oro area controlled by Orofino. La Azul is composed of a mixed sequence of predominantly volcanic rocks featuring vein systems comprised of high grade chalcopyrite, galena and sphalerite with pyrite in quartz viens.

It has been interpreted that the metallogenic zonation around the La Azul workings evokes a very viable “hidden porphyry” exploration model (Shaw, 1995). This interpretation and the prospectivity of the area have been confirmed by the Orofino “qualified person” as per the 43-101 rules.

As an already-producing mine, Orofino has begun moving aggressively to confirm the current mineralogical interpretations, fast-tracking analysis work with a goal of beginning drilling within the year. La Azul features numerous geological similarities to Greystar’s Angostura project and Ventana’s La Bodega project, but La Azul is suspected to be of a higher grade and more easily accessible.

Current “Minero” activity is already producing high grade gold, but the crude beneficiation methods employed by the resident miners is unlikely to display the true grade or extent of gold mineralization. For example, the currently-employed process of using mercury amalgamation to collect the free gold after grinding, followed by cyanide leach of the crushed material would not liberate gold deposits within sulphides.

Proper Power & Energy, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board:PPWE.ob), a Tampa-based independent oil and gas exploration and production company, has announced that it has been approached by two independent financing groups and has submitted a $10 million private placement memorandum to each of them. These two groups are seeking domestic oil and gas production in light of the Middle East tensions.

"The timing to acquire oil and gas properties while gas prices are low couldn't be better. Additionally, the availability of this funding for developing Proper Power's Kentucky and Utah oil prospects will accelerate 2011 revenues and leasehold acreage growth dramatically. We anticipate feedback from both of the financing groups before the end of this month," stated Andrew J. Kacic, President of Proper Power & Energy.

Utah contains four of the Nation's 100 largest oil fields, two of its 100 largest natural gas fields (2008). Utah has approximately 3,200 producing oil wells and 5,700 producing natural gas wells.

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.
