We are getting close to a very important time of year for those that have followed the junior mining and oil and gas markets for years if not decades...and that’s the month of
May. We’ve all heard the phrase, “Sell in May and Go Away” and it is just a saying that has developed over the years as for whatever reasons, our resource markets seem to have a great time in the fall and winter and peak in the late spring and the summer is as dead as dead gets.
It is because all the money people in Toronto are vacationing at the cottages? Or is it because in the oil and gas business,demand in North America is lighter? Or for any one of ten ideas a person can come up with, the big question remains,will it happen again this year? It already feels as if it has happened in the last month.
You can take a look at a long list of oil and gas stocks that are trading at lower prices right now with oil at $105, then when oil was $85.00. The concern of course is that at $85 oil was going up and things were going to get better. Maybe the concern is at $105, that things could only get worse. It is time to talk to some of the people over the next couple of days that have opinions on this and one of those deepthinkers
is John Kaiser, editor of the Bottom Fishing Report.
John also is concerned as he says, “we are probably on the verge of a major tipping point.” His concern like that of everyone else is the Mideast and what could happen there. As far as oil, we should point out that John had suggested at the beginning of the year, he could see oil at $110 by Christmas. Right about now he says, provided something doesn’t go really bad in the Middle East, he wouldn’t be surprised to see oil at year-end at $100 to $105. As far as the reaction in oil stocks over the last while, he suggests that oil is—usually a victim of its own success. The big concern he says is when oil moves like it has over the last while, the concern is higher oil prices can slow the world economy and cause lower oil prices down the road. As far as “Sell in May and Go Away” he thinks we’ve already had that with the PDAC curse and the two very ugly
weeks we saw in the junior mining sector. If you are looking for something good that can happen over the next while, Kaiser is pointing to developments in Japan that could be very, very significant to the American economy.

Empire Mining

What’s happened in Japan, he suggests has put into question this idea of fully integrated companies with production here, there and everywhere because of the
problems that have happened in Japan. All of a sudden factories around the world are running out of parts and all this ‘just in time’ planning simply doesn’t work. He is
suggesting that could see the development of many more factories in the United States and those factories would need metals, power and you-name-it and more importantly, give a beaten up American population the belief that there is a future.
He is also looking at real estate prices which possibly could take a tumble in the coming months, but he feels if they can hang on to this level, between that and the
possibility of new factories coming back to the United States, could give a whole new rebirth of faith in the United States.
Meanwhile, while we worry about so many new companies being issued daily and so many financings overhanging the market, Kaiser with a longer-term outlook just simply isn’t that concerned. With the possibility of all these new factories and more faith in the United States, he can see actually a better resource demand down the road, and with it, good if not even better mineral prices.
Which gets us to the usual questions one would ask at a time like this. Well, give us some stocks we should be buying to benefit? For those looking for something that’s going to happen soon and if he could only look at one today, he suggests that story would be Empire Mining,a cheapie at.57—.59.
He is a big fan of management, a former major Rio Tinto executive and the company has two plays—the Bulqiza Chromite play in Albania and the Bursa Gold Copper project in Turkey currently drilling a project that has come up with some interesting results to date. For whatever reason, Kaiser has big faith that they could come up with something significant here and see the play develop into a sizeable copper and gold play.
Meanwhile, for the constant readers of the Kaiser Bottom Fishing Report, one stock that he came up with way back at .25, albeit a long time ago, was Peregrine Diamonds. Today he does his in-depth look at the diamond company and one thing about those who follow
diamonds—you notice that it always takes much longer to develop diamond projects than others. He expects a news flow when we talked to him today, to start in June on the drilling program that commences shortly...........................................

ok, zeit für updates...diese woche gab es 2 news von Empire

Vancouver, B.C., April 14th, 2011. Empire Mining Corporation (EPC: TSX-V) ("Empire") is pleased to announce that drilling has commenced at its 100% owned Bulqiza chromite project in Albania.

On September 30th, 2010 Empire announced that Phase I drilling at its Bulqiza-Batra chromite licence in Albania had definitively confirmed the existence of the eastern mineralized extension of the fold structures (the "Eastern Limb") controlling and hosting the chromite ores in the productive Bulqiza and Batra mines (the "Orebody") where recorded past production is about 20 million tonnes of high-grade (35%-42% Cr2O3) and high metallurgical quality (CrFe ratios of up to 3:1) ore. The drilling confirmed the Eastern Limb at both ends of the Orebody*, which extends over 2 km of strike and over an average width of 500 metres.

Phase II drilling has commenced at Thekna Gallery (adit) 25 which is located within the Bulqiza-Batra Licence, 5 km southeast of the Orebody* hosting the Bulqiza and Batra mines and is believed to be part of the same structure. Drilling will consist of up to 1,000 meters in up to 4 core holes and will target a reported historical resource** identified from state drilling of 300 000 at 45% Cr2O3 where Empire believes there is scope for significant expansion.

The commencement of drilling required Empire's development team to complete the rehabilitation of Gallery 25 in harsh winter conditions which severely hampered progress. Overhead power-lines were installed from the main grid to the entrance of Gallery (adit) 25. Insulated cables and water lines were installed along 1.36 km in the gallery to support the operation of the drilling rig. Empire now has access to an important underground drill chamber where previous state drilling intersected thicker high Cr2O3 grades.

On completion of drilling at Thekna Gallery 25, the drill rig will be moved to Bulqiza Gallery 1440. Gallery 1440 extends south over a 5 km length from the Bulqiza end of the Orebody* to beyond the Batra end of the Orebody* providing valuable infrastructure for drilling, evaluation and eventual mining of mineralisation within only a few tens of metres above Gallery 1440. Geological reconstructions of state records also indicate unmined blocks of chromite below, but in close proximity to Gallery 1440.

The necessary rehabilitation of Gallery 1440 has been completed to provide access to drill sites in closer proximity to mineralization. The installation of power and water lines and the construction of a short access road, which were all delayed by difficult winter conditions, are now underway. Drilling at Bulqiza 1440 will target banded and massive chromite mineralization intersected in Phase I drilling, 120 m above Gallery 1440. Drilling at Bulqiza 1440 will consist of up to 1,000 meters in up to 6 core holes.

*The term "Orebody" in this press release is used in the historical sense and is not meant to imply current economic viability.

**Caution: A qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify the historical estimate respecting the Thekna deposit as a current mineral resource. Empire is not treating the historical estimate as a current mineral resource and the historical estimate should not be relied upon.

Empire Mining: Third Drill Rig Now Turning at Bursa Copper-Gold Discovery; IP Survey to Begin

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, Apr 19, 2011 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX News Network) --

Empire Mining Corporation (TSX VENTURE: EPC) ("Empire") is pleased to announce that a third drill rig has commenced drilling on the Demirtepe target at the Bursa Project in Turkey. On January 18, 2011 Empire announced a significant new discovery in the first hole drilled at Demirtepe, which intersected 47.35 meters of 2.02% Copper, 0.96g/t Gold and 21.64g/t Silver including 8 meters of 9.1% Copper, 4.68g/t Gold and 95.3g/t Silver.

The original 4 hole scout-drilling program at Bursa-Demirtepe was expanded following the announcement of the discovery-hole with an additional 10,000 meters of diamond drilling and accelerated with additional rigs.

The size of the mineralized system at Demirtepe, as indicated by the 1,500 by 500 meter soil geochemical anomalies, geophysical anomalies, and scattered old workings suggests that the skarn mineralization encountered in the discovery drill-hole, and probably the target of ancient miners, is driven by a deeper porphyry system. The current drilling is focused on obtaining continuity within the skarns and drilling into the porphyry intrusion.

Further IP/Resistivity geophysical work is scheduled to start on the 23rd of April at Demirtepe. The IP/resistivity survey previously carried out used 100 metre dipole/dipole spacing; enough to penetrate approximately 200 meters. The responses obtained correspond to skarn hosted sulphides, but were unable to identify deeper porphyry potential. The 200 meter spacing will permit greater depth penetration to identify the porphyry target area modeled from geological interpretation. Two lines totaling 6 km are planned. A map of the proposed IP/Resistivity work plotted against a Magnetics survey and a copper geochemistry soil survey can be viewed at the following link:

Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 41.120.930 von KMST am 28.02.11 20:52:477.77% Copper, 3.02 g/t Gold and 116 g/t Silver Intersected Over 5.15 Meters in Step-Out Drilling at Empire's Bursa Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, May 9, 2011 (Marketwire via COMTEX News Network) --

Empire Mining Corporation (TSX VENTURE:EPC) ("Empire") is pleased to announce assay results for the next 6 diamond drill holes completed at the Demirtepe target area of the Bursa copper-gold-silver-molybdenum project located in Turkey.

There are three identified porphyry-related target areas at Bursa of which Demirtepe is the second to be drill tested by Empire. The results of hole DTH-001 (the "Discovery Hole") drilled at Demirtepe were announced on January 18, 2011 and intersected zones of copper-gold-silver skarn mineralization, including:

-- 2.02% copper, 0.96 g/t gold, 21.64 g/t silver over a sampled width of 47.35 m from 112.2 m to 159.55 m.

The zone includes the following higher grade intercepts:



-- 6.29% copper, 3.1 g/t gold and 66.1 g/t silver over a sampled width of
12.7 m from 140.3 m to 153.0 m; and

-- 9.1% copper, 4.68 g/t gold and 95.3 g/t silver over a sampled width of
8.0 m from 140.3 m to 148.3 m.


Following the announcement of the Discovery Hole at Demirtepe, Empire expanded the program with an additional 10,000 meters of diamond drilling and accelerated the drilling with additional rigs, with a total of three rigs presently operating. Full results are now available for the next six holes.

The best intercept was in hole DTH-007 which was drilled approximately 200 m to the south of the Discovery Hole, and intersected significant copper-gold-silver skarn mineralization considerably shallower than in the Discovery Hole, as follows:

-- 1.79% copper, 0.75 g/t gold and 27.1 g/t silver over a sampled width of 34.60 m from 40.60 m to 75.20 m.

The zone includes the following higher grade intercepts:



-- 3.37% copper, 1.38 g/t gold and 50.9 g/t silver over a sampled width of
17.30 m from 52.10 m to 69.20 m; and

-- 7.77% copper, 3.02 g/t gold and 116 g/t silver over a sampled width of
5.15 m from 64.05 m to 69.20 m.


Other highlights include:



-- hole DTH-003A drilled approximately 80 m to the south of the Discovery
Hole, intersected 32.92 m of 0.92% copper, 0.36 g/t gold and 12.0 g/t
silver from 152.75 m depth; including 4.25 m of 3.41% copper, 1.35 g/t
gold and 43.8 g/t silver from 152.75 m to 157.00 m.

-- hole DTH-005 drilled approximately 50 m to the north of the Discovery
Hole, intersected 18.80 m of 1.40% copper, 1.89 g/t gold and 18.5 g/t
silver from 31.25 m depth; including 7.40 m of 2.00% copper, 1.17 g/t
gold and 23.6 g/t silver from 31.25 m to 38.65 m; and 13.80 m of 1.30%
copper, 0.56 g/t gold and 14.0 g/t silver from 100.70 m to 113.80 m.


The copper mineralization is hosted almost exclusively by wollastonite, a calcium silicate mineral with industrial uses, and appears to be related to a north-south feeder structure. To date, mineralization has been followed within an approximately 75 m wide structural corridor for some 250 m of strike length. The corridor is open along strike and to depth and contains multiple intercepts of copper within the receptive host lithology.

The first indications of an epithermal overprint were discovered in hole DHT-005, with 1.10 m of 20.70 g/t gold. In addition to copper, gold and silver mineralization, drilling also encountered significant values of molybdenum and zinc; hole DHT-002 drilled in the northern anomaly, approximately 600 m to the north of the Discovery Hole, intersected 21 m of 3.05% zinc from surface, and DHT-006 drilled approximately 50 m to the west of the Discovery Hole, intersected 9 m of 0.171% molybdenum. Work is in progress to piece together section-by-section geology in order to provide additional context.

A complete table of all significant results to date can be viewed at the following link:

Photos of drill core can be viewed at the following link:

http://www.empireminingcorp.com/i/nr/2011-05-09-photos.pdf

Four distinctive intrusive phases have been noted so far: early granite, monzonite with molybdenite frequently observed near faults, diorite porphyry with disseminated pyrite and quartz veining with occasional chalcopyrite, and hornblende porphyry, which has only been seen in outcrop. Two lines of deeper penetrating 200 m dipole-dipole IP and Resistivity have recently been completed to assist in locating the possible porphyry body believed to be responsible for the copper-wollastonite skarn mineralization, which is perceived to be more distal. Results of the interpretation are pending.

To date, 4,625 metres have been drilled in 21 completed holes at Demirtepe and three additional holes are in progress. Assays are also in the pipeline for several holes, while core from other drill holes is currently being logged and sawn for dispatched.

QUALITY ASSURANCE/QUALITY CONTROL

All core was sawn in half with sample widths determined by geology and mineralization. Individual samples within visible mineralization did not exceed 1.0 m, while the maximum sample interval was 2.0 m. Samples were bagged, security tagged and sent to the ALS Chemex sample preparation facility in Izmir, Turkey and, following preparation, to the ALS Chemex laboratory in Vancouver. Gold was determined by fire assay with AA finish, ore grade repeats were run with ICP-AES and a total of 33 elements determined by ICP after four-acid digestion. Blank, replicate and Certified Reference Material made up approximately 15% of the batch. Additional check assays are under consideration, as is the acquisition of certified reference material in the higher grade range of the received assays.

Empire Mining Corporation: Continuity of Significant Shallow Copper-Gold Skarn Mineralization Confirmed in Review of Drill Core and Additional Assays from Bursa-Demirtepe Target

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, May 18, 2011 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX News Network) --

Empire Mining Corporation (TSX VENTURE: EPC) ("Empire") is pleased to announce additional assay results for the next diamond drill hole DTH-008 completed at the Demirtepe target area of the Bursa copper-gold-silver-molybdenum project located in Turkey.

Drill-hole DTH-008 was drilled vertically from the same drill pad as the discovery hole DTH-001 (angled at -75 degrees) that intersected 47.35 meters of 2.02% copper and 0.96 g/t gold. Significant skarn mineralization was intercepted in DTH-008 as follows:


-- From 28.3m to 49.55m; 1.66% copper, 1.02 g/t gold, 32 g/t silver over a
sampled width of 21.25 m;
-- Including a higher grade intercept of 5.25 m 4.83% copper, 2.96 g/t
gold, 92 g/t silver over a sampled width of 5.25 m from 37.10 m to 42.35
m; and
-- From 208.35 m to 211.15 m; 1.68% copper, 0.52 g/t gold, 17.3 g/t silver
over a sampled width of 2.8 m. This intercept is some 50 meters away
from its equivalent in the Discovery Hole.

Atable with significant results to date is available at the following link:

http://www.empireminingcorp.com/i/nr/2011-05-18-table.pdf

Copper-gold mineralization in the Main Zone has been intercepted in all five drill-holes for which assays have been received to date; within a 250 meter by 75 meter north-south structural corridor (DHT 006 was mainly drilled outside the corridor, although collared within it). The Main Zone is open to the north, to the south and at depth and hole-to-hole correlation is evident. Detailed geological logging of the drill cores has enabled a clearer interpretation of grade and width continuity. There are two clear zones of copper-gold mineralization; one at depths of 50 to 70 meters, the other between 100 and 140 meters from surface. There is also a third, intermediate zone, evident in two of the drill-holes.

A longitudinal section and a map depicting the surface projection of the mineralization can be viewed at the following link:

Photos of core from DTH-008 can be viewed at the following link:

http://www.empireminingcorp.com/i/nr/2011-05-18-photos.pdf

Copper-gold is hosted almost exclusively by wollastonite, a calcium silicate mineral. This mineral forms approximately 50% of the rock mass in the upper 150m of the longitudinal section. A commodity review carried out for Empire by a Swedish-based industrial minerals specialist suggests that wollastonite could be a valuable co-product of copper and gold. Mineral processing specialists are being contacted to scope test work applicable to these ores in order to extract best value.

Drilling will continue to explore for extensions of the Main Zone skarn body and to build up sections using infill drilling where necessary for resource estimation purposes. IP geophysical targets to the north of the Main Zone have also been earmarked for drilling in the coming few weeks.

All core was sawn in half with sample widths determined by geology and mineralization. Individual samples within visible mineralization did not exceed 1.0 m, while the maximum sample interval was 2.0 m.

konnte eigentlich mit chrom nie so viel anfagen. aufmerksamkeit hatte da die freewest-übernahme (im wesentlichen chrom) durch cliff erregt im Ring of fire. die börse kann dagegen mit chrom immer noch nicht viel anfangen, was nicht schlecht ist wenn man neu einsteigen will.

zudem jetzt hier noch die anderweitig respektablen funde Kupfer/gold... also ich meine der laden ist mit 20 mio CAD bewertet und hat dafür doch ganz schön was zu bieten. zudem sieht der chart momentan zum reinbeißen aus... sehr schön auskonsolidiert, wie derzeit bei einigen minen nach dem harten frühling (TSX-V ging ja immerhin von 2400 auf 2000 zurück... was es gewesen sein dürfte).

bisher hier ja eine one-man-show deinerseits.. schöner thread trotzdem und vielleicht deswegen ;)
Empire Mining Receives Additional Assays Confirming Continuity of Significant Copper-Gold Skarn Mineralization at Bursa-Demirtepe and Intersects Significant Molybdenum Grades

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, Jun 20, 2011 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX News Network) --

Empire Mining Corporation (TSX VENTURE: EPC) ("Empire") is pleased to announce additional assay results for drill holes DTH-009, DTH-010, and DTH-018 at the Demirtepe target area of the Bursa copper-gold-silver-molybdenum project located in Turkey.

All three holes intersected significant shallow copper-gold-silver skarn mineralization and holes DTH-9 and DTH-18 also intersected significant molybdenum grades. The drilling has extended the mineralization to the south and to the west, thereby confirming the continuity of the mineralization in the Main Zone along a corridor 270 meters long and up to 100 meters wide.

Significant intercepts for the three holes are as follows:


-- DTH-009: From 30.1 m to 46.8 m - 16.7 m @ 1.05% Copper, 0.31 g/t Gold
and 10.6 g/t Silver also from 136.7 m to 152.2 m - 15.5 m @ 0.29%
Molybdenum
-- DTH-010: From 97.5 m to 116.9 m - 19.4 m @ 2.46% Copper, 0.82 g/t Gold
and 34.3 g/t Silver including from 98.7 m to 102.3 m - 3.6 m @ 10.8%
Copper, 3.32 g/t Gold and 142.8 g/t Silver
-- DTH-018: From 81.4 m to 105.0 m - 23.6 m @ 1.37% Copper, 0.56 g/t Gold
and 17.1 g/t Silver including from 97.7 m to 102.5 m - 4.8 m @ 1.15%
Molybdenum

Approximately 30 core holes, for about 7,000 meters have been drilled at the Demirtepe target to date. Twenty-two have been drilled in the Main Zone, five in the North Zone and three in between the Main and the North zones. Assay results from holes DTH-11 to DTH-30 and parts of DTH-18 are pending.

Anno 2010 hieß es mal... so in etwa heute wolle man mit der produktion bzgl chrom beginnen. Da ich den wert aus den augen verloren hab und nix finden konnte.
Kann jemand sagen wie es damit aussieht ? Gebiete gefallen mir immer besser. Management sowieso gut besetzt, allen voran David Cliff.
http://www.empireminingcorp.com/i/pdf/empire_presentation_20…

ok, hab´s gelesen... bin immer zu voreilig.

Stand: dieses Jahr soll die Porudktion noch beginnen.
Ich hoffe die Jungs wissen wa sie machen (bzw ist´s mir noch egal weil ich nicht drin bin). Die Resource ist ja nicht groß definiert wenn ich mich nicht irre und Chrom zum jetzigen preis hmm.. das soll CF-positiv werden ??
Ermutige mich mal einer ;)
...wobei sich Nicholas Clarke ja gerade damit eigentlich auskennen sollte (wenn man sieht was er mit Oriel veranstalte -> ein Chromproduzent der milliardenschwer wurde)

sieht alles recht spannend aus. wenn das läuft, geht die lucy mächtig ab bei 15 mio marktkap
Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 41.673.635 von Boersenkrieger am 20.06.11 21:14:12Schön das hier einer noch interesse zeigt...hatte letzte woche eine order drin die leider knapp nicht bedient wurde. Ansonsten rechne ich damit das die nächste news was zum chrom bringt, sollte die high grade lode getroffen werden siehts klasse aus. Danach wollte man eigentlich im spätsommer mit bulk tonnage beginnen und hübsch paar tonnen verkaufen. Hab mal grob etwas mit paar zahlen gespielt, bursa könnte ganz lecker werden
Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 41.673.838 von KMST am 20.06.11 21:53:28Schön das hier einer noch interesse zeigt

ok, hab grad nachgelesen... außer Dir keiner hier bisher
naja gute Werte haben oft die geringste Userbeteiligung bei WO ;)
muß mich mal weiter einlesen, aber hier sind schonmal keine amateure am Werk und es scheint alles Hand und Fuß zu haben.

Cliffs war Freewest (im wesentlichen chrom) immerhin 150 mio wert.
Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 41.673.887 von Boersenkrieger am 20.06.11 22:02:08bursa ist echt noch weit weg aber bei 270x100x18m komm ich auf 1,26 mio tonnen erz. hab mal die durchschnittliche vererzungsdicke aller löcher bisher auf 25m berechnet. da das ganze aber ca. 70 grad und nicht true thickness waren hab ichs mal auf 18m runtergesetzt.

11 löcher 1,5% Cu, 0,7g/t Au, 19,8g/t Ag alles im schnitt über excel ausgespuckt.
kubikmeter gestein mit moderaten 2,5t angenommen. 1,26 mio tonnen macht ca 19000t kupfer, 29000unzen gold, 807000unzen silber bis jetzt.
langfristige preise kupfer 6800$/t macht 129mio$ insitu kupfer, 1200$/oz gold 33mio$, 24$/oz silber 19 mio...


alles super grob mal kurz drübergerechnet...irgend einen groben fehler entdeckt? ich finde das schaut ganz gut aus für so eine frühe entdeckung
Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 41.674.228 von KMST am 20.06.11 23:13:01könnte hinkommen. klar noch in weiter ferne. aber sieht schonmal auch nach was aus. wenn man die erschließung mit chrom (teilweise) finanzieren könnte, wär´s natürlich klasse.
endlich mal wieder was zum chrome project. high grade wird hiermit bestätigt...produktion wird damit meiner meinung nach aufgenommen werden können, wird aber sicher noch durch die weiteren löcher abgesichert werden müssen

Drilling at Empire Mining's Bulqiza Chromite Project Intersects 41.98% Cr2O3 Over 4.85 Metres

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, Jul 14, 2011 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX News Network) --

Empire Mining Corporation (TSX VENTURE:EPC) ("Empire") is pleased to announce the results of the first assays from underground diamond drilling at its 100% owned Bulqiza chromite project in Albania.

Drill hole ETH-002, collared at -50 degrees returned a weighted mean assay of 41.98% Cr2O3 over an intersected width of 4.85 metres, with a chrome to iron ratio of 3.24:1. Combined with the low alumina and high magnesia obtained, the grades fall well within the category of high quality metallurgical ores. A table with the full intercept assayed results is available at the following link:

http://www.empireminingcorp.com/i/nr/2011-07-14-table.pdf

Four holes have been completed in the current drilling program with assays for holes ETH-001, 003 and 004 pending. The current drilling is being carried out at Thekna Gallery (adit) 25 which is located within the Bulqiza-Batra Licence and is aimed at confirming the grades and thicknesses reported in an Albanian state historical resource(i) of 300,000 tonnes grading 45% Cr2O3, where Empire believes there is scope for significant expansion.

The assays from hole ETH-002 appear to be consistent with results reported from the state drilling(ii) which include: 40.7% Cr2O3 over 9.7 metres intersected width some 30 metres away from hole ETH-002, 42% Cr2O3 over 3.0 metres about 20 metres away and 46.03% Cr2O3 over 4.5 metres some 40 metres distant. A cross section can be viewed at the following link:

http://www.empireminingcorp.com/i/nr/2011-07-14-xsection.pdf

The intercept in ETH-002 was obtained at a hole depth of 312.35 to 317.2 meters. Empire is considering various options to advance exploration and development in the medium term, and eventual mining; including decline access from the Thekna level 25 adit and access from existing infrastructure in closer proximity to the mineralization.

Initial indications are that the geology at Thekna is structurally complex with potential for fold and fault tectonics similar to those observed in the main Bulqiza-Batra area and with similar potential for expansion of the historical resource.

(i) Caution: A qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify the historical estimate respecting the Thekna deposit as a current mineral resource. Empire is not treating the historical estimate as a current mineral resource and the historical estimate should not be relied upon.

(ii) The historical drill holes were not subject to down-hole surveying to check for deviation, so the quoted intercepts are located approximately.

Quality Assurance/Quality Control

Cores were first sawn in half, bagged and sent to the OMAC/Stewart laboratory in Loughrea, Ireland where they were prepared and assayed. Every stage is monitored according to strict QA/QP procedures, including standard reference material, blanks and chain of custody.

Empire Mining to Acquire 100% of Bursa Copper-Gold Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, Jul 26, 2011 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX News Network) --

Empire Mining Corporation (TSX VENTURE: EPC) ("Empire") is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement to acquire a 100% interest in the Bursa Project in Turkey where drilling by Empire has encountered significant grades and intervals of copper-gold-silver and molybdenum skarn mineralization, including the discovery hole at the Bursa-Demirtepe target which intersected 47.53 meters of 2.02% Copper, 0.96 g/t Gold and 21.64 g/t Silver including 8 meters of 9.1% Copper, 4.68 g/t Gold and 95.3 g/t Silver.

Robert Giustra, Chairman of Empire stated: "The outright purchase of the Bursa project eliminates the requirement to complete a pre-feasibly study in the limited time remaining pursuant to the option terms and allows Empire to focus its efforts on resource expansion. More importantly however, a single cash and share payment by Empire will now result in an immediate equity interest in the project of 100%. When considering that the option terms allowed Empire to earn only 65% in consideration of significant exploration expenditures, annual cash payments and a share payment component calculated on a fully diluted basis, it is very evident that the new deal is an exceptional accomplishment for Empire and its shareholders."

Empire has been earning a 65% interest in the Bursa Project pursuant to an option agreement (the "Original Agreement") with Alacer Gold Corp. ("Alacer"), however the parties have now amended the agreement (the "Amended Agreement") to allow Empire to terminate the Original Agreement and complete the purchase (the "Purchase) of an outright 100% interest in the project by making a cash payment of US$1.5 million and by issuing such number of common shares equal to 19.9% of Empire's issued and outstanding share capital, less any Empire shares already owned by Alacer.

Provided that Alacer has an equity interest of at least 10% in Empire, it will also have the right to appoint a director to Empire's board at Annual General Meetings, and a pre-emptive right to participate in any future equity financing of common shares of Empire to allow it to maintain its ownership interest as at the date announcing the offering.

The parties have agreed to use best efforts to complete the Purchase on or before September 30, 2011.

The Original Agreement was signed on September 17, 2007, and amended on October 11, 2007 and on February 13, 2009, and is between (among other subsidiary parties) Anatolia Minerals Development Limited (as Alacer was then known) and Empire. Under the Original Agreement, Empire could earn a maximum interest of 65% over a 6 year period by:


i. Making cash payments totaling US$520,000 ($100,000 paid to date);
ii. Issuing shares totaling 5% of Empire's post-issuance fully diluted share
capital as at the 5th anniversary of the agreement (800,000 shares paid
to date);
iii.Making exploration expenditures totaling US$7.5 million (approx. $3.7
million incurred to date); and
iv. Completing a pre-feasibility study.

The Bursa Property is situated 120 km south of Istanbul in western Turkey and is comprised of mineral licenses within a trend of demonstrated copper, molybdenum and gold porphyry systems.

There are two principal porphyry target areas at the Bursa Project - Karapinar and Demirtepe. Previous work at Karapinar intercepted thick intervals of copper mineralized porphyry with significant molybdenum and gold over a surface area of approximately 600 by 650 meters. Demirtepe is the second target to be drill tested by Empire at Bursa and lies about 6 km to the north of the Karapinar target.

The Discovery hole DTH-001 completed by Empire on the Demirtepe target was announced in January 2011 and intersected significant copper-gold-silver skarn mineralization including 2.02% copper, 0.96 g/t gold and 21.64 g/t silver over 47.35 m from 112.2 m to 159.55 m. Higher grade intercepts included 9.1% copper, 4.68 g/t gold and 95.3 g/t silver over a sampled width of 8.0 m from 140.3 m to 148.3 m.

As a result of the discovery in the first hole drilled, the program at Demirtepe was expanded with an additional 10,000 meters of diamond drilling and accelerated with additional drill rigs. The size of the mineralized system at Demirtepe, as indicated by the 1,000 by 500 meter soil geochemical anomalies, geophysical anomalies, and scattered old workings suggests that the skarn mineralization encountered in the first drill-hole, and probably the target of ancient miners, is driven by a deeper porphyry system. Ongoing drilling has been focused on obtaining continuity within and expansion of the skarn mineralization.

The licenses forming the Bursa Property cover a portion of a Palaeozoic sedimentary-metamorphic-intrusive complex inlier punctuated by Tertiary intrusions, mainly granodiorite, with associated porphyry-style hydrothermal alteration and mineralisation. The inlier is partially faulted and its northern margin is delineated by the major west-northwest trending Eskisihir Fault. The area is comparable in many ways with other porphyry-bearing areas within the Tethyan Belt.

Drilling at Empire's Bursa-Karapinar Target Intersects 60 Metres of Chalcocite Enrichment Grading 0.93% Copper, 0.11 gpt Gold and 0.017% Molybdenum

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, Aug 23, 2011 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- Empire Mining Corporation CA:EPC -3.70% ("Empire") is pleased to announce results of the first two holes assayed from diamond drilling at the Karapinar Target area of the Bursa Project located in Turkey. The drilling at Karapinar totaled 1,282.2 metres in six holes and was carried-out in parallel with drilling at the Demirtepe Target area of the Bursa Project where drilling by Empire has encountered significant grades and intervals of copper-gold-silver and molybdenum skarn mineralization.

Drilling at Karapinar has intersected a 60 meter zone of chalcocite enrichment in hole KDH-018 grading 0.93% copper, 0.11 gpt gold and 0.017% molybdenum from a hole depth of 79.6 to 139.6 metres. The secondary enrichment lies beneath a 48 meter zone of oxide mineralization grading 0.25% copper from a hole depth of 31.6 metres. The combined oxide and chalcocite mineralization grades 0.63% copper, 0.11 gpt gold and 0.01% molybdenum over 108 metres. Hole KDH-018 lies 90 metres northeast of hole KDH-008 and 100 metres southwest of KDH-007, both of which intercepted secondary copper mineralization in Empire's 2008 drilling campaign.

(The 2008 drilling program was designed to confirm and expand the zone of porphyry copper mineralization indicated in three holes drilled by Rio Tinto in 2003 and intercepted significant copper mineralization in five of six holes including 99.7 metres from surface averaging 0.50% copper, 0.007% molybdenum and 0.10 gpt gold in hole KDH-006. KDH-008 and KDH-011 intercepted zones of supergene enrichment in heavily fractured porphyry containing native copper and other secondary copper minerals from surface to depths up to 100 metres. A table of 2008 drill results is available at the following link: http://www.empireminingcorp.com/i/nr/2011-08-23-table-2008.pdf" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://www.empireminingcorp.com/i/nr/2011-08-23-table-2008.pdf ).

KDH-018 is one of the easternmost holes drilled at Karapinar so far and has revealed significant expansion potential where past exploration was incorrectly indicative of unfavorable geology. For instance:



-- Past drilling in hole KDH-007 was believed to mark the eastern extent of
the porphyry mineralization, however it is upslope of KDH-018 and the
copper is presumed to have migrated down the slope. The hole was
inclined to the WNW 290/-70 but still intersected secondary copper for
11 metres from 5.5 to 16.5 metres but the average copper grade was lower
at 0.43% copper.
-- Past geological mapping eastward indicated unfavorable schist, based
principally on a few scattered boulders, however, recently-opened road
cut has revealed a further 100 metres of argillically-altered porphyry
to the east of KDH-018 where schist had been previously incorrectly
mapped;
-- Past soil sampling results strongly reflect the sub-surface geology over
much of the mapped mineralized porphyry deposit, however, close to KDH-
018 and to the east, it is now believed that the anomalous but subdued
copper in soils indicates a possible leached environment over an
undrilled area of 600 x 400 metres. This view is supported by the IP and
resistivity geophysical profile and calculated metal factor as shown in

http://www.empireminingcorp.com/i/nr/2011-08-23- resistivity.pdf.





Various Karapinar maps can be viewed at the following link:

Photos of KHD-018 diamond drill core can be viewed at the following link:

http://www.empireminingcorp.com/i/nr/2011-08-23-photos.pdf .

KHD-018 was prioritized for assaying since secondary copper mineralization was visible in the core. Results are awaited for four more holes at Karapinar, however results for KDH-012 drilled 90 metres northwest of KDH-008 and 120 metres southwest of KDH-018 have been received and the hole intersected an average 0.30% copper, 0.10 gpt gold and 0.014% molybdenum over its entire length of 266.30 metres. The available drilling results are tabulated in the following link:

http://www.empireminingcorp.com/i/nr/2011-08-23-table-2011.pdf .

On a larger scale, the intrusive porphyry deposit possibly extends 1 km to the north, based on copper and molybdenum anomalies to the north and lead zinc in the dolomites north of the drilled porphyry. This carbonate mass is interpreted as a large roof pendant and one hole drilled by Rio Tinto in 2003 (KDH-005) penetrated through the marble and contact skarns and into porphyry.

The presence of a chalcocite blanket at Karapinar is unusual in Turkey, due to relatively rapid uplift and erosion, although a transition from oxide to sulphide has been noted in previous drill holes and characterised by a varied amounts of chalcopyrite, chalcocite, bornite, native copper and copper oxides which enhance the copper grade in the shallower sections of drill hole.

Empire is planning additional geophysical work to seek extensions to the known porphyry deposit, in tandem with mapping and sampling, before the next phase of drilling.

Given the significant results received to date at both the Karapinar and Demirtepe targets of the Bursa Project, that can be interpreted as having considerable potential, and considering the distance between the two targets of approximately 6 km; management of Empire has decided to treat the two project areas as distinct and separate. Moving forward the Bursa-Karapinar Target and the Bursa-Demirtepe Target will therefore be known respectively as the Karapinar Project and the Demirtepe Project. Empire's financial reporting will therefore be adjusted retroactively in the quarter to account for two separate projects in the Mineral Properties notes.

Empire Provides Progress Update on Demirtepe Copper-Gold Project, Turkey

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, Aug 30, 2011 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX News Network) --

Empire Mining Corporation (TSX VENTURE: EPC) ("Empire") is pleased to provide an update on the Demirtepe Project in western Turkey where drilling by Empire has consistently encountered significant grades and intervals of copper-gold-silver and molybdenum skarn mineralization in the Main Zone, including Discovery Hole DTH-001 which intersected 2.02% copper, 0.96 g/t gold and 21.64 g/t silver over 47.35 m from 112.2 m to 159.55 m, including 8.0 m of 9.1% copper, 4.68 g/t gold and 95.3 g/t silver.

Following the announcement of the Discovery Hole in January, the Phase I drilling program at Demirtepe was accelerated and expanded with up to three diamond drill rigs. That phase of drilling was completed in mid-July and totaled 8,433.5 metres in 36 holes (plus re-drilling of 3 holes abandoned due to technical difficulties) of which 5,847.8 metres in 27 holes were focused on the Main Zone. The remaining nine holes were drilled in the Northern Zone and in the gap between the North and Main zones. The accelerated pace of drilling, which was completed on schedule and within budget, resulted in a substantial backlog of core being prepared for assay. The backlog was addressed by prioritizing core cutting and assay based on visual examination of mineralized holes, primarily from the Main Zone. Therefore, holes which did not intersect visible mineralization were not prioritized for assay. This resulted in core from 27 of 36 holes being sent to the assay lab, of which results have been received and announced on 11 holes to date. Results for the 16 currently outstanding holes are expected in September. A drill map outlining the surface projection of the mineralization in the Main Zone can be viewed at the following link:

http://www.empireminingcorp.com/i/nr/2011-08-30drillmap.pdf
The next anticipated phase of work at the Main Zone will focus on modeling the mineralization in Micromine with the aim of carrying our resource assessment to NI43-101 standards. SRK Consulting Engineers has also been contracted to begin an environmental baseline study over the area.

The partial results reported to date, indicate significant mineralization in every hole drilled into the Main Zone and clearly demonstrate consistent hole-to-hole continuity of the skarn mineralization within it. In addition, the detailed core logging clearly shows a basal detachment fault beneath the Main Zone, which Empire has interpreted as indicative that the skarn mineralization in the Main Zone may have originated and slipped away from a larger mineralized orebody(i) to the southwest. The interpretation resulted in a prospecting campaign to the southwest of the Main Zone which has led to the discovery of mineralized extensions (the "Southwest Zone"). A map indicating the location of the new Southwest Zone is available at the following link:

http://www.empireminingcorp.com/i/nr/2011-08-30map.pdf.

Mapping and sampling on the newly identified Southwest Zone have been completed and assay results are pending. In addition, Geophysics at the Southwest Zone is planned to identify the possible location of the source porphyry system that is believed to be the driver for the mineralization at the Demirtepe Project as it does not appear to reach the surface. Empire's Phase II drilling program at Demirtepe is planned to commence in the fall and will be focused on testing the new targets identified from geochemistry and geophysics carried out in the new Southwest Zone. Photos from the Southwest Zone are available at the following link:

http://www.empireminingcorp.com/i/nr/2011-08-30photos.pdf.

Empire is currently also evaluating the significance of the wollastonite, a calcium silicate mineral, which is the exclusive host of the copper-gold-silver mineralization at Demirtepe. Initial studies commissioned by Empire on the wollastonite in the Main Zone indicate that it has significant potential economic importance in its own right and could potentially significantly benefit the stripping ratio and economics of a future copper-gold mine development at Demirtepe. Additional information pertaining to the wollastonite at Demirtepe will be released in the next few days.

(i) The term "orebody" in this press release is not used in the historical sense and is not meant to imply current economic viability.

Copper-Gold-Silver Mineralization at Empire Mining's Demirtepe Project in Turkey is Hosted in High-Value Wollastonite Mineralization

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, Sep 01, 2011 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX News Network) --

Empire Mining Corporation (TSX VENTURE: EPC) ("Empire") is pleased to report that initial studies that it commissioned on the wollastonite mineralization in the Main Zone of the Demirtepe deposit, which is the exclusive host of the copper-gold-silver mineralization, indicate that it is potentially of significant economic importance and can therefore possibly considerably benefit the feasibility of a future copper-gold mine development at Demirtepe.

The wollastonite mineralization in the Main Zone at Demirtepe has been followed within a 350 x 100 meter corridor to a depth of some 150 meters, where it is cut by a low angle detachment fault. The orebody(i) is well-defined by 27 drill-holes and 5,847.8 meters of core. The logs will be re-mapped for wollastonite and the mineralization will be model in Micromine with the aim of carrying-out a NI43-101 compliant resource estimate for copper-gold-silver-molybdenum and wollastonite in Q4 2011. SRK Consulting Engineers has also been contracted to begin an environmental baseline study over the area.

Wollastonite, a calcium silicate mineral, occupies a niche, but growing, market presently at around 540,000 tonnes per annum globally (Y2010). It has a number of specialist applications including; ceramics, advanced construction, paint products, metallurgical fluxes, plastics and friction materials. New applications include; healthcare products, environmental management and waste treatment, as well as agricultural uses. China currently produces about 60% of world output. India and the USA are other important producers. Prices range from $80 to over $1,500 per tonne, depending on physical characteristics and purity of the product, although actual received prices depend on seller/buyer contracts. Wollastonite can be separated from garnet and other minerals by dry magnetic separation or flotation. The acicularity (needle-like crystals) of some of the Demirtepe wollastonite suggests that the product could achieve prices significantly above the floor prices.

In order to better understand the wollastonite business and obtain an independent view of the Demirtepe deposit, Empire retained HGRAB (Ltd) a consulting business operated by Professor Rob Hellingwerf who is qualified as European Geologist and has more than 20 years' experience in wollastonite deposits. His two reports, one on occurrence, market, concentration and beneficiation, the other on a site visit to Demirtepe, can be obtained at the following links:

http://www.empireminingcorp.com/i/nr/2011-09-01-techrep-fiel…

According to the studies, the Demirtepe Project occupies a strategic location relative to current world production of wollastonite. The nearest producing location is the Lappeenranta Mine in Finland, implying that there is potential for Demirtepe to fill the gap in large parts of Europe, the Mediterranean area and the near Middle East. The studies also concluded that a substantial part of the Main Zone consists of four types of wollastonite-bearing rock, as well as the copper/gold-and molybdenum bearing sulphides:


-- Wollastonite-garnet skarn with wollastonite in excess of 80% of volume,
considered high-grade.
-- Wollastonite-garnet skarn with wollastonite between 50% and 80% of the
rock mass, considered medium-grade.
-- Wollastonite-garnet skarn with wollastonite less than 50%, considered
low-grade stockpile material for wollastonite and garnet.
-- Banded wollastonite-calcite with wollastonite between 25% and 75% by
volume, considered low to medium grade and appears to be a low
percentage component.

The re-logging of the wollastonite mineralization will use the above categories, and be carried-out with the aid of short wave ultraviolet light, as the mineral fluoresces. In addition, processing tests are planned to obtain a better fix on the quality categories of the wollastonite for pricing.

HGRAB's report also points out that garnet could be a valuable co-product of mineral separation. Garnet based industrial applications include; sandpaper manufacture, water filtration, and high-end abrasive uses such as water-jet cutting, sand, ceramics and glass production. Depending on use, indicative prices range from $50 to $250 per tonne. Initial indications are that there is a significant gap in the regional market for garnet.

The consequence of understanding the relative importance of wollastonite and garnet to the valuation of the copper-gold-silver-molybdenum mineralization cannot be understated. Not only is there potential for value-adding from co-products, but waste is minimized and becomes less of an environmental and waste management issue in a mine development scenario.

Empire is presently considering several options for development and eventual commercial exploitation of its wollastonite resource. Given the high value of the product and the specialist market, as is the case with many industrial minerals, Empire is considering Partnership and Joint Venture opportunities with third parties experienced in this sector as a means of fast-tracking the opportunity to market and unlocking value for shareholders.

Drilling by Empire at Bulqiza Project, Albania, Intersects Additional High-Grade Ores at Thekna Deposit and Demonstrates Important Additional Expansion Potential

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, Sep 13, 2011 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX News Network) --

Empire Mining Corporation (TSX VENTURE: EPC) ("Empire") announces full results of the underground drilling program completed at the Thekna Deposit(i), which forms part of the Bulqiza-Batra Licence at Empire's wholly owned Bulqiza chromite project in Albania. Four diamond core holes totalling 1,550.7 metres were completed at Thekna to target a reported historical resource and its potential down-dip continuation from existing workings which were accessed from several adits. Empire is pleased to report that three of the four holes successfully intersected the intended target and returned significant chromite mineralization.

Previous drilling by the Albanian state at Thekna reported an historical resource of 300,000 tonnes grading 45% Cr2O3(i). In the current drilling program, four drill-holes were collared in the 25 Level at Thekna with the aim of providing some confirmation of historical grades and thicknesses as well as seeking possible extensions to previously mined high-grade (+40% Cr2O3) ores from historical workings, based on a revised structural overview. It is known that the highest grades and thicknesses, and therefore tonnage potential, in the nearby Bulqiza and Batra mines are related to fold structures and the same interpretation can be applied to Thekna. The highest grades are to be expected close to the fold closures, while lower grade and banded ores are to be expected on the fold flanges.

The most significant results from Empire's drilling at Thekna were obtained from drill-holes ETH-001 and ETH-002. Results are summarized as follows:


-- ETH-001 intersected four separate zones of banded chromite from 313.3 to
317.9 metres including 1.17 metres at 33.86% Cr2O3. In addition, there
are three further bands of disseminated and banded chromite between
366.60 and 369.9 metres.
-- ETH-002 previously reported 41.98% Cr2O3 over an intersected width of
4.85 metres, at a hole depth of 312.35 to 317.2 meters, with a chrome to
iron ratio of 3.24:1. Based on this result and the predicted fold
structure, the hole was deepened and intersected a third limb of
chromite mineralisation grading 36.88% Cr2O3 over an intersected width
of 4.55 metres at a hole depth of 382.70 to 387.20 metres, with a chrome
to iron ratio of 2.94:1. This intercept lies 65 metres down-hole of the
first, previously-reported intersection. Combined with the low alumina
and high magnesia obtained in the two intercepts, the grades fall well
within the category of high quality metallurgical ores. In addition,
there is an intermediate zone of banded and disseminated chromite in six
separate bands between 364.60 and 379.90 metres grading between 25.45%
and 40.44% Cr2O3.
-- ETH-003 intersected lower grade chromite on the fold flanges, similar to
previous state intercepts at the same elevations.
-- ETH-004 experienced exceptionally poor core recoveries in the area of
anticipated ore intercepts and particularly between 250 and 300 metres;
the hole was therefore not submitted for assay.

Atable with full drill results is available at the following link:

http://www.empireminingcorp.com/i/nr/2011-09-13-table.pdf

The drilling is graphically represented three dimensionally (3D) at the following link:

A cross-section is available at the following link:

http://www.empireminingcorp.com/i/nr/2011-09-13-xsection.pdf

The drilling was successful in confirming the continuity of the mineralization and, in particular, in demonstrating that there are two fold closures and not one as previously thought. One of the fold closures has been mined on the neighbouring concession and its projection is shown in the 3D graphic. The recognition of the third limb and, therefore a second fold closure, has added significantly to the tonnage potential for Thekna.

Considering the hole depth of the drill-intercepts, Empire is considering various options to advance exploration and development in the medium term, and eventual mining; including a decline access from the Thekna level 25 adit or access from existing infrastructure in much closer proximity to the mineralization.

The drilling equipment at Thekna, as well as the power cabling and transformer, and the water lines, have been dismantled and are being set-up in the Bulqiza 1440 adit for the next drilling phase expected to commence this month.

(i) Caution: The term "deposit" in this press release is used in the historical sense and is not meant to imply current economic viability. A qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify the historical estimate respecting the Thekna Deposit as a current mineral resource. Empire is not treating the historical estimate as a current mineral resource and the historical estimate should not be relied upon.

Quality Assurance/Quality Control

Cores were first sawn in half, bagged and sent to the OMAC/Stewart Laboratory in Loughrea, Ireland where they were prepared and assayed. Every stage is monitored according to strict QA/QP procedures, including standard reference material, blanks and chain of custody.

Empire Mining Final Assays From Demirtepe Main Zone Return Significant Copper-Gold-Silver and Molybdenum Values

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, Sep 20, 2011 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX News Network) --

Empire Mining Corporation (TSX VENTURE: EPC) ("Empire") is pleased to report the final assay results for the remaining drill holes from Phase I drilling at the Demirtepe copper-gold-silver-molybdenum project located in western Turkey, where drilling in the Main Zone has consistently intercepted significant shallow mineralization in every hole completed. The most recent assays include the following significant copper-gold-silver and molybdenum intersections:

SIGNIFICANT COPPER-GOLD-SILVER INTERCEPTS

Hole DHT-034


-- from 40.00 to 53.00 metres - 13.00 m of 1.16% Copper, 0.44 gpt Gold and
16.10 gpt Silver
; including from 48.00 to 53.00 metres - 5.00 m of 2.63%
Copper, 0.80 gpt Gold and 37.20 gpt Silver; including from 51.00 to
53.00 metres - 2.00 m of 5.37% Copper, 1.61 gpt Gold, 76.00 gpt Silver
and 0.07% Molybdenum;
-- from 146.60 to 165.00 metres - 18.40 m of 2.26% Copper, 1.27 gpt Gold
and 27.30 gpt Silver
; including from 150.60 to 156.60 metres - 6.00
metres of 5.23% Copper, 3.03 gpt Gold and 63.20 gpt Silver.

Hole DHT-032


-- from 90.40 to 96.00 metres - 5.60 m of 3.88% Copper, 0.69 gpt Gold and
31.90 gpt Silver
;
-- from 119.70 to 121.00 metres - 1.30 m of 4.99% Copper, 1.21 gpt Gold and
67.50 gpt Silver
;
-- from 134.00 to 143.40 metres - 9.40 m of 3.58% Copper, 0.95 gpt Gold and
37.80 gpt Silver
; including from 138.50 to 141.60 metres - 3.10 m of
8.49% Copper, 1.94 gpt Gold and 87.10 gpt Silver.

Hole DHT-026

-- from 60.00 to 61.00 metres - 1.00 m of 23.10% Copper, 2.00 gpt Gold, 345 gpt Silver and 0.095% Molybdenum.

SIGNIFICANT MOLYBDENUM INTERCEPTS

Hole DHT-012

-- from 198.00 to 213.10 metres - 15.10 m of 0.224% Molybdenum.

Hole DHT-026

-- from 123.00 to 131.00 metres - 8.00 m of 0.113% Molybdenum; -- from 159.00 to 161.00 metres - 2.00 m of 0.108% Molybdenum.

Hole DHT-030

-- from 109.40 to 112.00 metres - 2.60 m of 0.427% Molybdenum; -- from 146.00 to 155.00 metres - 9.00 m of 0.412% Molybdenum; including from 154.00 to 155.00 metres - 1.00 m of 1.895% Molybdenum.

Hole DHT-032

-- from 72.10 to 74.00 meters - 1.90 m of 0.465% Molybdenum; -- from 198.20 to 200.50 meters - 2.30 m of 0.269% Molybdenum.

All 21 drill-holes in the Main Zone are mineralized with copper, gold, silver and molybdenum. The Main Zone is a structurally-defined block, 350 metres long by 100 metres wide by 150 metres deep, on average. Copper, gold, silver and molybdenum are hosted by wollastonite (a calcium silicate mineral with several industrial uses), or by a mix of wollastonite and garnet, so that virtually all the material in the Main Zone contains saleable product.

Three maps: drill holes plotted against geology, the surface projection of mineralization in the Main Zone, and a longitudinal section of the Main Zone, are available at the following link:

http://www.empireminingcorp.com/i/nr/2011-09-20-maps.pdf

Several photos of drill core are available at the following link:

http://www.empireminingcorp.com/i/nr/2011-09-20-photos.pdf

A table of mineralized intercepts for the entire Phase I drilling campaign is available at the following link:

http://www.empireminingcorp.com/i/nr/2011-09-20-table.pdf

Of particular interest is the evidence of what appears to be a high grade feeder zone in DHT-026, with 23% copper and 345 gpt silver. Also, the contribution from molybdenum is more than previously thought.

Some assaying is still in progress on the outlying holes, where there is less evidence of visible mineralization that formed the basis for assaying priority. Of note, is the intersection of 2.3% zinc over 25.3 metres from hole from DHT-002A.

All Main Zone drill core has been re-logged for wollastonite content and quality type, and specific gravity determinations are ongoing with a view to completing an initial NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate for copper-gold-silver-molybdenum and wollastonite qualities in the fall.

The next phase of drilling at Demirtepe is planned to commence in the fall and will be focused on testing the new targets identified from geochemistry and geophysics carried out in the newly discovered Southwest Zone which Empire has interpreted as a possible location of the source porphyry system that is the driver for the skarn mineralization at Demirtepe.

Quality Assurance/Quality Control

All core was sawn in half with sample widths determined by geology and mineralization. Individual samples within visible mineralization did not exceed 1.0 m, while the maximum sample interval was 2.0 m. Samples were bagged, security tagged and sent to the ALS Chemex sample preparation facility in Izmir, Turkey and, following preparation, to the ALS Chemex laboratory in Vancouver. Gold was determined by fire assay with AA finish, ore grade repeats were run with ICP-AES and a total of 33 elements determined by ICP after four-acid digestion. Blank, replicate and Certified Reference Material made up approximately 15% of the batch. Additional check assays are under consideration, as is the acquisition of certified reference material in the higher grade range of the received assays.

David Cliff, President & CEO
Empire Mining (EPC.V) released a fresh batch of drill results on their Turkish Copper-Gold-Silver-Molybdenum-Wollastonite project, and announced that all 21 holes on the main zone encountered mineralization, which is encouraging for a Phase II drill-program, expected this winter.

We cannot emphasize enough the importance of the Wollastonite on the project, as this could be a real game-changer. According to today’s news release, virtually all material on the Main Zone contains saleable product, so the strip-ratio to get to the copper is almost zero. Add the fact that the high-quality Wollastonite is selling for approximately US$ 800-1200 per tonne, a few million tonnes of Wollastonite could mean a few billion dollars in in-situ value, consisting of Direct Shippable ore.

Empire Mining Corporation: IP/Resistivity Survey Commences at Karapinar Copper Project, Turkey

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 21, 2011) - Empire Mining Corporation (TSX VENTURE:EPC) ("Empire") is pleased to announce that an IP/resistivity survey has commenced at the Karapinar copper project to seek extensions to the chalcocite enrichment blanket identified in recent drilling, and to target higher grade primary porphyry and skarn mineralization to the north of the previously drilled area. A total of eight line kilometres are planned in four north-south profiles, each two kilometres long. Dipole-dipole surveying will be used with a six dipole array, with spacing of 200 metres. Empire plans to drill test any targets generated.

Recent drilling at Karapinar (see announcement of August 23, 2011) has intersected a 60 metre zone of chalcocite enrichment in hole KDH-018 grading 0.93% copper, 0.11 gpt gold and 0.017% molybdenum from a hole depth of 79.6 to 139.6 metres. KDH-018 is one of the easternmost holes drilled at Karapinar so far and has revealed significant expansion potential.

The secondary enrichment lies beneath a 48 metre zone of oxide mineralization grading 0.25% copper from a hole depth of 31.6 metres. The combined oxide and chalcocite mineralization grades 0.63% copper, 0.11 gpt gold and 0.01% molybdenum over 108 metres. Hole KDH-018 lies 90 metres northeast of hole KDH-008 and 100 metres southwest of KDH-007, both of which intercepted secondary copper mineralization in Empire's 2008 drilling campaign.

The presence of a chalcocite blanket at Karapinar is unusual in Turkey, due to relatively rapid uplift and erosion, although a transition from oxide to sulphide has been noted in previous drill holes and characterised by a varied amounts of chalcopyrite, chalcocite, bornite, native copper and copper oxides which enhance the copper grade in the shallower sections of drill hole.

On a larger scale, the intrusive porphyry deposit possibly extends 1 km to the north, based on copper and molybdenum anomalies to the north and lead zinc in the dolomites north of the drilled porphyry. This carbonate mass is interpreted as a large roof pendant and one hole drilled by Rio Tinto in 2003 (KDH-005) penetrated through the marble and contact skarns and into porphyry.

Empire is also planning additional mapping and sampling at Karapinar, before the next phase of drilling.

(Ich habe den Durchblick noch nicht ganz mit dem Verhältniss 3:1, sind die Kosten ab Hafen gemeint etc...)


http://www.empireminingcorp.com/i/pdf/related_articles/2011-…
The ore qualifies as metallurgical grade chromite because it has a 3:1 chromium to iron ratio. Empire's goal is to establish a resource of 4-5 million tonnes grading 40% plus Cr2O3 that will be mined at a rate of 500,000 tonnes per year. Empire believes it can mine and deliver chromite ore to the port at $70-$80 per tonne; prices for metallurgical chromite ore range $200-$330 per tonne depending on the grade. Apart from the cost of a gravity separation plant to upgrade ore into the 45%-50% Cr2O3 range, the capital costs are minimal though Empire will require working capital for the mining operation.:

Empire Commences Drilling at Bulqiza 1440 Adit, Albania; Targets High-Grade Chromite

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, Sep 22, 2011 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX News Network) --

Empire Mining Corporation (TSX VENTURE: EPC) ("Empire") is pleased to announce that drilling has commenced at the Bulqiza Deposit(i) which forms part of the Bulqiza-Batra Licence at Empire's wholly owned Bulqiza chromite project in Albania. Up to 12 diamond core holes totalling approximately 1,250 metres are planned at the 1440 adit and will target the fold structures identified by the geological reconstruction of historical state records and confirmed by a limited initial drilling program in 2010.

The 2010 drilling was carried-out from surface and intersected banded and massive chromite mineralization only some tens of metres above the 1440 adit. Work to rehabilitate the adit was therefore undertaken during the past year in order to provide access to drill sites in closer proximity to the fold structures where the highest chromite grades and thicknesses, and therefore tonnage potential, are interpreted to occur from the state data. The highest grades are to be expected close to the fold closures, while lower grade and banded ores generally occur on the fold flanges.

Various sections, maps and photos are available at the following link:

http://www.empireminingcorp.com/i/nr/2011-09-22-sections-map…

In September 2010 Empire announced that Phase I drilling at the Bulqiza Deposit(i) had definitively confirmed the existence of the eastern mineralized extension of the fold structures (the "Eastern Limb") controlling and hosting the chromite ores in the productive Bulqiza and Batra mines (the "Orebody")(i) where recorded past production is about 20 million tonnes of high-grade (35%-42% Cr2O3) and high metallurgical quality (CrFe ratios of up to 3:1) ore. The drilling confirmed the Eastern Limb at both ends of the Orebody(i), which extends over 2 km of strike and over an average width of 500 metres. A longitudinal view of the Orebody(i) can be viewed at the following link:

http://www.empireminingcorp.com/i/nr/2011-09-22-longitudinal…

The 1440 adit extends south over a 5 km length from the Bulqiza end of the Orebody(i) to beyond the Batra end of the Orebody(i) providing valuable infrastructure for drilling, evaluation and potentially eventual mining of nearby chromite ores. The adit was used as a ventilation system for the historical Bulqiza and Batra mining operations but had deteriorated after the collapse of state-controlled mining in 1990. Empire's mining crews have re-opened and made safe some 2,000 metres of adit, including old drilling chambers, cleared the drainages and established a second exit. In addition, 1,600 metres of insulated power cable have been laid in the adit to support the drilling, and a transformer and overhead power connection to the state grid have been installed outside to provide power. A new 300 metre access road link has also been established to the adit portal to facilitate access for the work force and equipment.

Further drilling is planned, as additional potential ore blocks have been identified from ongoing data compilation, with the aim of establishing sufficient chromite intercepts to calculate an initial resource estimate for part of the Orebody(i).

Empire Mining Sampling Returns Significant Copper-Gold Anomaly 1.8 km Long and Still Open on Strike

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, Sep 26, 2011 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX News Network) --

Empire Mining Corporation (TSX VENTURE: EPC) ("Empire") is pleased to report that an ongoing sampling program at the newly-identified Southwest Zone of the Demirtepe wollastonite-hosted copper-gold-silver and molybdenum project in Turkey, has identified a continuous copper-gold anomalous zone currently about 1.8 km long and up to 800 metres wide and still open to the southwest. The new Southwest Zone is located approx. 1 km to the southwest of the Main Zone.

The following link shows the location of the known target zones at Demirtepe:

http://www.empireminingcorp.com/i/nr/2011-09-26-demirtepe-so…

The first phase of soil sampling consisting of 292 samples has been completed on a 200 by 200 metre grid, and visible mineralization identified in the course of that sampling has been rock sampled (68 rock samples, approx. half from boulder float and half from outcrop).

The sampling returned elevated (from 500 ppm to more than 3,000 ppm) copper levels in soils broadly coincident with elevated gold ranging from 20 ppb to more than 100 ppb. Initial rock sampling results include 4.68% copper, 5.58 gpt gold and 59.3 gpt silver from wollastonite bearing boulders and 3.2% copper in garnet skarn boulders with copper oxide staining. Sampling has been expanded to close off the anomaly to the southwest, where it is still open, and more detailed 100 metre by 100 metre sampling is in progress to better define the main anomaly. The copper and gold geochemistry for the anomaly as it is presently defined relative to the other zones can be viewed at the following link:

http://www.empireminingcorp.com/i/nr/2011-09-26-demirtepe-so…

The Southwest Zone is interpreted as having formed the basement below the Demirtepe Main Zone deposit which then became detached. This view is supported by signs of epithermal style quartz with chalcopyrite and pyrite, so a higher temperature equivalent. The identification of a basal detachment fault at the bottom of the Main Zone led to the discovery of the Southwest Zone.

Mapping has been extended to encompass the extension areas of the Southwest Zone and an IP/resistivity survey is planned to start in a few days to identify the possible location of the porphyry system believed to be the driver for the skarn-hosted mineralisation at Demirtepe. The next phase of drilling at Demirtepe is planned to commence in the fall and will be focused on the Southwest Zone.

Photos from the Southwest Zone are available at the following link:

Quality Assurance/Quality Control

All samples were taken utilizing conventional exploration methods. Rock samples were collected by continuous chipping across outcrop and grab samples of float boulders were taken where no outcrop was found. Soil samples were taken on a grid using a GPS and only the 'B' soil horizon was selected for sampling. Samples were bagged, security tagged and sent to the ALS Chemex sample preparation facility in Izmir, Turkey and, following preparation, to the ALS Chemex laboratory in Vancouver. Gold was determined by fire assay with AA finish for all rock samples and by aqua regia extraction with AAS finish for all soil samples. Ore grade repeats were run with ICP-AES and a total of 33 elements determined by ICP after four-acid digestion. Blank, replicate and Certified Reference Material made up approximately 15% of the batch. Additional check assays are under consideration, as is the acquisition of certified reference material in the higher grade range of the received assays.

(Reuters) - Canada's Empire Mining began drilling on Friday at its Bulqiza chrome mine to verify the presence of a cusp of high grade and thick ore, Empire's general manager for Albania said.
Lirim Hoxha said the drilling at Bulqiza followed confirmation of a "very big" structure at its Thekna deposit east of Bulqiza, part of their Bulqiza-Bater-Thekna license.
"We have today started drilling at gallery 1440 to prove the presence of a cusp of high grade and thick ore, based on what has been drilled and mined before," Hoxha told Reuters.
Hoxha said Empire drilled last year on the surface at Thekna to prove extensions in the east and west of the exploited chromite mineralization. Bulqiza is the richest chrome area in Albania.
"We confirmed a very big structure ready for commencing access development. It means we can develop an important mine with 36 to 40 percent chromite oxide," Hoxha said.
A veteran geologist, Hoxha said Empire's project at its Bulqiza-Bater-Thekna area was one of the most important on a European scale, but he did not speak about tonnage potential. "We want to discover first and then start mining," he said.
Hoxha said Albania's chrome ore output was smaller than South Africa's but its chrome ore was very much sought after, especially by China, because its chrome-iron ratio was 2.6 to 3.2 compared to 1.8 of the chrome ore from South Africa. (Reporting By Benet Koleka; Editing by Jon Loades-Carter)

Empire to drill new copper-gold anomaly in Turkey

Following a series of geological clues, Empire Mining thinks it has found the base to its Main zone, where drilling has returned strong copper-gold mineralization.
Author: Kip Keen
Posted: Monday , 26 Sep 2011

HALIFAX, NS -

Empire Mining discovered a tantalizing copper-gold anomaly in Turkey following a bit of geological sleuthing at its Demirtepe project, which is part of the Bursa property about 120 kilometres south of Istanbul.

So far the area is about 1.8 kilometres long and 800 metres wide, Empire Mining says, with copper values in soil samples hitting over 3,000 parts per million in several clusters within a roughly one kilometre square area.

The anomaly is notable as it is much the same size and shows similar copper-gold grades as one that Empire Mining outlined in the Main zone, less than kilometre away to the northeast, which it subsequently drilled returning strong copper-gold intercepts this year.

In fact deposit-wise Empire Mining theorizes that the Main zone and the new Southwest zone are one and the same.

Through drilling, Empire Mining says it hit a fault at the bottom of copper-gold mineralization in the Main zone, which has returned as much as 2.02 percent copper, 0.96 g/t gold and 21.64 g/t silver over 47 metres.

That fault in the Main zone tipped-off Empire Mining to the possibility copper-gold mineralization might keep running deeper in a deposit the base which had subsequently shifted.

The question for Empire Mining was, where did it go?

Empire Mining now believes the answer lies in the Southwest zone. Supporting Empire Mining's view that it could represent the continuation of mineralization in the main zone is the apparent higher temperature at which the Southwest area was formed.

That higher temperature suggests formation at greater depths.

The copper-gold anomaly is intriguing enough for Empire Mining to warrant drilling, which it says will begin this fall.

In July Empire Mining signed an agreement with Alacer Gold to acquire a 100-percent stake in the Bursa property, updating what had been an option for a 65-percent interest.
klingt alles sehr vielversprechend. rein von den gehalten her beim Cu-Au-Ag-Deposit ist das schon hervorragend. die frage ist ob sie die masse finden.
Chrom kommt sowieso ins rollen.... bin mal gespannt auf dieses mauerblümchen mit diesem team und den äußerst spannenden deposits
Empire Mining Commences IP/Resistivity Survey at Demirtepe Copper-Gold-Silver Project, Turkey; Targets New Southwest Zone

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 28, 2011) - Empire Mining Corporation (TSX VENTURE:EPC) ("Empire") is pleased to announce that an IP/resistivity survey has commenced at the newly identified Southwest Zone of the Demirtepe copper-gold-silver and molybdenum project in Turkey, with the aim of identifying the possible location of the source porphyry system that is believed to be the driver for the skarn-hosted mineralization at Demirtepe.

A total of 20 line kilometres is planned to cover an area of 3.5 km2 in nine east-west and one north-south profile each about 2.0 km long. Time-domain dipole-dipole surveying will be used with a six dipole array, with line spacing of 200 metres. A map is available at the following link:

http://www.empireminingcorp.com/i/nr/2011-08-28-geochem-IP.p…

Recent sampling at the Southwest Zone has identified a continuous copper-gold anomaly currently about 1.8 km long and up to 800 metres wide and still open to the southwest; with elevated copper levels in soils broadly coincident with elevated gold. Rock sampling results include 4.68% copper, 5.58 gpt gold and 59.3 gpt silver from wollastonite bearing boulders and 3.2% copper in garnet skarn boulders with copper oxide staining.

The new Southwest Zone is located approx. 1 km to the southwest of the Main Zone where drilling by Empire has encountered significant grades and intervals of copper-gold-silver and molybdenum skarn mineralization, including the discovery hole which intersected 47.53 meters of 2.02% Copper, 0.96 g/t Gold and 21.64 g/t Silver, including 8 meters of 9.1% Copper, 4.68 g/t Gold and 95.3 g/t Silver.

The Southwest Zone is interpreted as having formed the basement below the Demirtepe Main Zone deposit which then became detached. This view is supported by higher temperature signs of epithermal style quartz with chalcopyrite and pyrite. The identification of a basal detachment fault at the bottom of the Main Zone led to the discovery of the Southwest Zone.

The next phase of drilling at Demirtepe will be focused on the Southwest Zone.

hmmm läuft nicht so.. muss auch sagen daß mich grad die wirtschaftslage insgesamt eher animiert weiter in goldproduzenten zu gehen.
wir haben mission impossible im euroraum und in usa. china ist evtl dadruch auch gefährdet. gold dürfte irgendwann mal über 10.000 stehen. keine währung wird halten können. ein resette muss kommen. frage ist nur ob sich das strecken läßt. denke QE3 in usa ist im anmarsch früher oder später.
schade daß derzeit das marktrisiko massiv über allem anderen steht
ein guter mann weniger, nach den problemen bei great panther silver habe die uns den weggeschnappt...

IP/Resistivity Survey at Empire Mining's Karapinar Copper Project in Turkey Outlines a Strong Chargeable Anomaly 800 x 800 Meters Across, Indicating Possible Significant Extension

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, Nov 01, 2011 -- Empire Mining Corporation CA:EPC 0.00% ("Empire") is pleased to announce results of the IP/Resistivity survey and of the drilling program recently completed at its Karapinar copper-porphyry project located in western Turkey.

IP/Resistivity

The objective of the IP/Resistivity survey was to seek extensions to the chalcocite enrichment blanket identified in recent drilling and to target higher grade porphyry and skarn mineralization to the east and north of the previously-drilled area. The survey was successful in locating and outlining a strong chargeability anomaly suggestive of a possible extension of leached porphyry east of the known deposit. In addition, combined review of IP results and geological mapping suggests that only part of the mineralized porphyry is exposed at surface and that the previously-drilled area is reflected by lesser geophysical responses than the newly-identified areas.

The chargeable anomaly is 800 x 800 meters across with circular shape beneath an area mapped as 'undetermined lithology' as there is no exposure. The most western flange of the anomaly correlates with the area where recent drilling (see announcement of August 23, 2011) intersected a 60 metre zone of chalcocite enrichment in hole KDH-018 grading 0.93% copper, 0.11 gpt gold and 0.017% molybdenum from a hole depth of 79.6 to 139.6 meters. Within the same geophysical anomaly, KDH-008 which lies 90 meters southwest of hole KDH-018 and hole KDH-013 located 80 meters south of KDH-018, both intercepted secondary copper mineralization.

While the western flange of the anomaly correlates with secondary enrichment from the well-exposed porphyry, the eastern part remains untested. This geophysical work gives encouragement to the interpretation that most of the porphyry is not exposed and that a substantial portion is leached at surface which results in a significant potential for expansion. This is accounted for by little to no exposure and subdued copper levels in soil, but high chargeable response at depth. Possible extension towards the north beneath the carbonates is also evident, where a resistivity low (possibly skarn) reflects the contact between the carbonates and intrusive.

On a larger scale and based on the IP, the intrusive porphyry deposit possibly extends 1 km to the north, and is supported by copper and molybdenum anomalies to the north and lead zinc in the dolomites north of the drilled porphyry. This carbonate mass is interpreted as a large roof pendant and one hole drilled by Rio Tinto in 2003 (KDH-005) penetrated through the marble and contact skarns and into porphyry. The IP survey also reinforces the concept of a large porphyry body partially concealed by a carbonate roof pendant. The implications of the interpretation of the results are that the main mineralized porphyry body remains untested and that there is potential for a significant and material change in both tonnage and grade.

Various updated maps and geophysical profiles reflecting the IP/Resistivity Survey results are available at the following link:

http://www.empireminingcorp.com/i/nr/2011-11-01-maps.pdf

A total of 9.6 line kilometers dipole-dipole Time Domain Scintrex IP (receiver IPR-12) were completed in four north-south profiles with line spacing of 200 meters to the east of the previously-explored area. Dipole-dipole surveying was used with dipole size 100 meters, n=1-6, transmitted impulse of 2 seconds ON-OFF, and bipolar. Chargeability and resistivity inversion was calculated using a 2D UBC code. In addition, a Chargeability (CHG)/ Resistivity (RHO) ratio of inverted CHG and RHO values was used in order to highlight zones with high CHG and low RHO referred to as "Metal Factor".

Drilling

Empire also completed a drilling program at Karapinar in 2011 consisting of seven diamond core holes, totalling 1,380.7 meters. The drilling has was focussed mainly on elevated copper in well-exposed porphyry to the west where hole KDH-012 intersected 266.3 meters of 0.30% copper, 0.014% molybdenum and 0.09 gpt gold. Assay results from the remaining holes in the drill program have been received and consistently encountered shallow mineralization from the oxide zone. Drill hole KDH-015 intersected a 31.7 metre zone of secondary copper mineralization grading 0.42% copper, 0.13gpt gold and 0.004% molybdenum from a hole depth of 20 to 51.7 meters, and hole KDH-016, drilled 90 meters to the west intersected 134.5 meters grading 0.30% copper and 0.10 gpt gold, 134.5 meters from surface. Drill hole KDH-017 did not return any significant intercepts due to drilling into the carbonate. However, the IP results show that the hole must be deepened to target a high chargeability anomaly at depth. A table with the complete results of the seven hole program is available at the following link:

http://www.empireminingcorp.com/i/nr/2011-11-01-table.pdf

Quality Assurance/Quality Control

All core was sawn in half with sample widths determined by geology and mineralization. Individual samples within visible mineralization did not exceed 1.0 m, while the maximum sample interval was 2.0 m. Samples were bagged, security tagged and sent to the ALS Chemex sample preparation facility in Izmir, Turkey and, following preparation, to the ALS Chemex laboratory in Vancouver. Gold was determined by fire assay with AA finish, ore grade repeats were run with ICP-AES and a total of 33 elements determined by ICP after four-acid digestion. Blank, replicate and Certified Reference Material made up approximately 15% of the batch. ALS Chemex performed internal check assaying on about 5% of the samples, and also included analyses of internal standards inserted into the sample string.

BAD NEWS ! :eek::eek::eek:

Empire Mining Corp. has suspended its Albanian operations due to the discovery of material omissions in its renewed exploration licences

http://www.stockwatch.com/News/Item.aspx?bid=Z-C%3aEPC-18965…


Allerdings

....Initial reports from these meetings suggest that the omissions identified in the renewed exploration licenses may simply be due to errors made by the Department of Mines; if true, this issue could possibly be rectified expeditiously.....

nur ein Formfehler ?
so wie ich das verstehe, gab es Gesetzänderungen, wodurch Empire kein Chrom verkaufen darf. Nach Diskussionen mit den Verantwortlichen, scheint es nur ein formeller fehler zu sein.
"if true" klingt allerdings nicht so ganz zuversichtlich !!!!
Entweder sie sind sauer, oder haben das Gefühl verarscht zu werden.

Nun will man sich erstmal aufs türkische Projekt stärker konzentrieren.
Wird also erstmal nix mit hübschen Chrom-Cashflows.

Meine Reaktion darauf: nachgekauft !
wollte ich eh nochmal, nach so einer News war´s dann erst recht ein Anlaß dazu für mich. Evtl. geht es in Albanien weiter wie vorher... naja mal sehen... das "if true" gefällt mir ganz und gar nicht. allerdings ist es vielleicht auch nur eine "shareholder value" formulierung, da man noch nix schriftliches hat.
Jedenfalls eine gute PR von der info und der formulierung her, so oder so.
Caesars Report meint dazu:

This obviously is a major blow, as the main reason why we ranked Empire Mining as number one in our Mining Top was the fact that we anticipated initial cashflow by the end of this year. With all the delays in issuing the (wrong) exploration licenses, we now doubt they’ll be able to sell chromite before 2013.

Zweifel die ich auch für berechtigt halte.
Trotzdem: Chrom hat keine Füße !!! --> kann somit nicht weglaufen :laugh::laugh:

ich denke die drills in der Türkei sind auch interessant genug.
Allerdings war Chrom der spannendere Part. aber nunja dafür kostet die aktie auch nur noch 0,18 CAD und eine good news könnte kommen (nälich daß in albanien wieder alles rund läuft)

Seid ihr noch dabei ? bzw eh nur einer ;););)
bin noch dabei aber mich hat das ganze jetzt herrlich in bozen auf dienstreise überrascht...ich sag erstmal nur schöne scheiße!
Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 42.315.871 von KMST am 07.11.11 23:50:53hat echt weh getan heute ausgerechnet dieses Ei bei dem schönen gesamtmarkt nachzukaufen. aber so halte ich es halt immer für mich.
kaufe fast nur noch bei starkem kursverfall oder direkt in eine bad news hinein. hab auch in der gurkenphase paar minen gekauft die freude machen.
da die nun gestiegen sind blieb grad noch EPC :laugh:

naja fakt ist: die bad news ist evtl. sogar no news. denkbar daß in ein paar wochen das OK kommt.

hab mir das ein paar mal durchgelesen:

"Empire could sell ore it encountered in exploration activities, however under the new law ore can only be sold once a mining licence is granted; it was therefore Empire's intent to mine and stockpile ore upon renewal of its exploration licences and to simultaneously apply for mining licences"

also alt war: man durfte mit einer explorationlizenz auch erz verkaufen. so wie man es ja vorhatte. das zeug zum hafen fahren und dann nen stand aufmachen "hotdogs und chrom zu verkaufen" *scherz ;)*
bzw grob.. dadurch wollte man schonmal gewinne erzielen (wobei bei gelingen mir das ein WOW abgerungen hätte, aber das Team ist halt gut laut der Vita)

2. man beantragt sowieso eine minin-lizenz. somit kann man momentan nur explorieren aber nix verkaufen. das ist die einzige einschränkung. sozusagen das warten auf die mining-lizenz.

jetzt ist es aber auch so:

"Empire has held emergency meetings with high-level members of the Albanian government, including the Albanian Prime Minister's adviser, and both the Minister and deputy minister of Economy, Trade and Energy."

---> mit dem Ergebnis, daß das "Department of Mines" einen Fehler machte. :eek:

Also fehlt eigentlich nur ein Punkt auf dem Zettel, daß sie während der Explorationsarbeiten, ohne eine Mine gebaut zu haben auch Erz verkaufen dürfen. Bzw halt abgraben und aufladen.

Problem ist halt das momentane Fazit Albanien erstmal auf Eis zu legen.
Der Reiz der schnellen Gewinne bei Chrom, an die das Management glaubt, u.a. eben auch ein Mr. Clarke der mit Oriel einen satten Chromtreffer landete... der Traum vom cashflowgenerierenden winzling der seine bohrungen mit verkauftem chrom finanziert... nunja. vielleicht dauerts nur paar wochen oder 1 jahre zieht mal schnell in land.

aber sei es drum: der laden ist grad 10 mios wert. das rechtertigen die properties allemal auch ohne chromverkäufe.
netter deal...Alacer bekommt die shares für berechnete 37cents. das ist ein prämium über 100% zum derzeitigen preis. jetzt muss empire noch 1.5 mio rüberwachsen lassen.

Empire Mining Updates Bursa Acquisition

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, Dec 23, 2011 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- Empire Mining Corporation CA:EPC +21.43% ("Empire") has amended the deadline to complete its acquisition of the Bursa Licenses in Turkey, last announced on December 16, 2011 and October 19, 2011. The transaction, which previously was required to be completed on or before December 31, 2011, is now required to be completed on or before March 31, 2012. For additional details, please see Empire's prior news releases on this matter. This amendment is subject to approval by the TSX Venture Exchange.
Here are some of John Kaiser’s stock picks:

He is keeping an eye on Empire Mining Corp. (TSX: V.EPC, Stock Forum), which recently announced a new find at its Bursa copper-gold project in Turkey. Trading at 15 cents this week, Empire has a market cap of $9.5 million, based on 63 million shares outstanding. The 52-week range is 72 cents and 13 cents. “They have generated a major copper target, which, if it turns out to deliver the sort of supergene enriched chalcocyte blanket that they think is there, this 15 cent stock could go up 10 to 20 times in value,’’ Kaiser said.
Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 42.563.015 von KMST am 07.01.12 10:23:03jep... eben allein das kupferdeposit hat gute chancen.
ärgerlich ist, daß albanien weiterhin auf eis liegt. da scheinen wohl doch etliche monate zu vergehen, obwohl es doch eigentlich nur ein formfehler gewesen sein sollte. die zweifekl am management waren wohl berechtigt.

vermutlich steht dadurch in absehbarer Zeit eine KE an... zu den jetzigen kursen nicht grade schön :mad:
0,185 CAD ...so langsam... bid 0,175 am ende
leider hängt der Fisch ein bischen im Netz rum, so lange kein grünes Licht aus Albanien kommt.
Vielleicht mail ich denen mal, ob sich eine Tendenz abzeichnet bis wann sie ihre gewünschte Lizenz bekommen.
Was kommt wohl schneller ?
eine KE, oder die richtige lizenz für´s Chrom ?
könnte den kurs vorher gut anheben :rolleyes:
toller roller, momentan kennt es ja hier nur eine richtung...nachkaufgelegenheit oder noch abwarten?

hab ne mail an info@empireminingcorp.com und investor relations geschickt, bekomme aber keine antwort. bin also auch etwas ratlos. gute liegenschaften und brutaler kursverlauf sucken dermaßen ;)
Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 42.789.825 von KMST am 22.02.12 16:56:07ich bin kein freund von hohen kursen. von daher gefällt mir der kursverlauf ganz gut.
werde wohl die tage nachkaufen. momentan bin ich wieder über 40% rot. ab da wird für mich ein nachkauf fällit. der letzte bei 0,175.
ich kauf auch gerne bis 0,05 weiter nach.
wenn´s sauber läuft sehen wir danach auch bald wieder 0,50 und dann ist alles fettgrün :D

hab ich schon öfter so gemacht. klappt wesentlich besser als bei steigenden kursen. hier weiss man wenigstens dann wo der boden für die nächsten jahre ist ;)
Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 42.789.825 von KMST am 22.02.12 16:56:07naja das ist halt börse.
hab MNV, LMR oder PNS seit einigen wochen in beobachtung. paar good news und die dinger sind von 70 bis 100 und 300% teurer geworden.
marktkap und vs Demirtepe-bohrungen und albanien ist schon ein witz.
da ich reiner antizykliker bin und niemals etwas kaufe was vor kurzer zeit halb so teuer war, gefällt mir Empire natürlich jetzt sowieso am besten.
bewerten kann ich selber und börsenkurse ergeben nur chancen wenn sie unten sind, denn ich will die steigung ganz mitmachen. wer 100% verpaßt, hat später nur einen 100%er anstatt eines 300%er bei einer weiteren verdopplung.
hier haben wir immerhin nun mehrere verdopplungen vor uns.

ich bereite mal für nächste woche einen nachkauf vor :)
immer nur kleine um nicht zu weit weg beim tief zu sein, mit dem ziel einer schnellen gegenbewegung wieder bald grün zu sein.
später wenn nötig bei 9 cents und dann jeweils bei 2 cents tiefer bis 1 cent runter :laugh:

möchte wetten wir sehen die auch mal über nen cad wieder und dann hab ich auch hier mal fun zur abwechslung :D

PS: daß das management nicht antwortet ist kein schlechtes zeichen.
mir haben historisch gesehen eigentlich immer nur die schrottbuden geantwortet. andere sollten auch besseres zu tun haben als mails zu beantworten. ;)

--> wenn noch was kommt würd ich mich trotzdem freuen ;)
Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 42.798.636 von Boersenkrieger am 23.02.12 20:05:56toller roller...hab zumindest noch genug cash im depot um nochmal extrem nachlegen zu können, nur wann ists genug ;)
ich leg nur scheibchenweise nach.
hab was aufs depot überwiesen heute. montag oder dienstag kauf ich nach.
kurs egal.

bid 0,11 ask 0,135 am ende

kann auch schnell wieder bei 0,14 landen.
zu 0,12 wärs sicher ein cooler nachkauf.
dann wart ich mal paar wochen und mal schauen..

der laden ist grad 6.944.847,47 CAD wert... da reicht bursa schon locker um das zu rechtfertigen (die 6,6 mio options für fully diluted kannst zu dem kurs eh vergessen)
denke der markt übertreibt total und hat angst vor einer KE, die wohl anstehen wird... ich mag das aber auch nicht zu dem kurs :laugh:

bei 0,11 cad bin ich fast exakt bei -50% :eek::eek::cry::cry: das sieht vielleicht eklig aus brrrrrrrrr... immerhin weiß ich jetzt daß mein durchschnittskaufkurs bei 0,22 cad liegt
bursa steht ja noch am anfang:
hast du mal einschätzungen dazu gefunden. ist ja glaub ich noch recht offen in alle richtungen. die bohrungen sind teilweise halt megagut. da kann man lange suchen.
vermutlich ist jegliche größeneinschätzung reine spekulation. hab dazu auch eigentlich nix finden können. am besten man malt sich sein eigenes bild dazu.

von albanien hört man ja leider auch nix. eigentlich müßten sie ja die richtige lizenz ohne probleme bekommen. es wurde ja von höchster stelle erklärt, daß es wohl eine art versehen war bzgl geändertet vorgaben zwar im land. aber sie sollten wieder die vollen rechte erhalten. dagegen hatte keiner was.

frägt man sich nur wie lange das dauern könnte.
Caesar Report hatte die ja auch immer wieder mal empfohlen bzw 2011 ursprünglich top-pick im jahresreport.
die meinten dazu nur es wurde wohl vor 2013 dadurch mit chrom nix zu verdienen sein.... also rechneten bereits im november mit einer großen verzögerung.

mit albanischen behörden und versehen kenn ich mich leider halt nicht so aus.

von daher: nicht fragen, nachkaufen :cool:
hab vorhin mal ne order reingstellt zu 0,125 cad.
ask 0,13 cad... mag noch net. hätte bei 0,12 ausm ask zuschlagen sollen paar stunden vorher.

sieht schön ausgekotzt aus das teil. denke es geht wieder hoch. vielleicht muss ich hochziehen mal sehen.
ansonsten würd ich meine pos bei unter 0,10 nochmal verdoppeln. müßte so langsam dann passen....
aber das teil hier muss man sich echt irgendwie zurechtkaufen bis man endlich tiefgrün ist. :cool:
Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 42.836.741 von Boersenkrieger am 01.03.12 21:28:07mach das mein freund...bin selber noch etwas unentschlossen. mich perönlich wundert es aber das bei diesen prospect sich hier und bei den mounties keiner so recht für diesen wert erwärmen kann. sobalt auf demirtepe/ burse dann 50 mio tonnen erz erbohrt wurden will dann hoffentlich jeder rein und kauft mir meine shares teuer ab. dann gibts zum prima kupfer/moli nochmal 500k oz gold dazu und vielleicht 30 mio unzen silber dazu.

kleine träumerei 2 jahre in der zukunft, die erste resource gibt diese zahlen leider noch nicht her.
Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 42.837.164 von KMST am 01.03.12 22:23:22ach was heißt erwärmen... downtrend... kleines problem mit albanien und warten. ke-gefahr zu tiefstkursen...
und jammer jammer

hab seit ein paar wochen mvn, pns und lmr angeschaut.
paar kleinigkeiten (ein nachbar hat ein gutes bohrloch gebuddelt, ein anderer haut die ersten bäume ab für ne straße) und schwups die dinger machen 70-300% an der schnur. wegen nicht viel...
oder bischen graphitblabla im netz und northern graphite rennt von 0,80 auf 2 cad. hatte ich bei 0,90 mal angeschaut. ...naja graphit ist ja auch soooo selten und soooo schwer förderbar :laugh:

hier gibts lünftig genug good news und richtig gute bohrresults aus der türkei. da kann man teilweise lange suchen um ähnlich gute bohrkerne zu finden.

unter 1 cad verkauf ich eh nix. ich kann den kerl hier auch gern bis 2 cents nachkaufen. macht mir nix aus. dann ist´s bei über 1 cad einfach nur noch viel mehr gewinn.

ich kauf grundsätzlich immer nur starke kursverfälle.
hatte mit minco silver auch ganz gut geklappt von 6,8 auf 1,5 runter am stück. bei 1,6 reingehauen (wollte eigentlich bei 1,2 nachkaufen... aber ging dann zügig richtung 3)

mir gefällt das ganz gut so... aber auch nur wenn andere werte gut laufen. wenn´s ganze depot so laufen würde wie empire hätt ich bald ein großes unlösbares allgemeines nachkaufproblem :laugh:

aber meine besten performer als einer der sehr lange hält sind im allgemeinen die dinger die ich beim dreckigsten chart gekauft hatte. ...vor allem natürlich warens die winterlinge aus 2008

im übrigen sind sie charttechnisch ganz gut angekommen, seitwärtstrend 1,5 jahre ab frühjahr 2009. kann also durchaus auch dauern hier. schaumer mal. ich mag es so. denn mit gewinnmitnahmen auf meine kosten is hier nich :laugh:
;););) stimmt... somit ist der verlust auch wieder einiges geringer geworden und die pos steht besser da :laugh:
vermutlich war´s 20-25% zu hoch noch... naja schaumer mal.
na ich sags ja mal wieder zu früh.
ich gehe jetzt mal auf 8 cad-cents für den nächsten. danach 5 und dann 3. das müßte reichen um später bei 15 cents richtig fett verdient zu haben :D
bisher hab ich noch fast jedes mistviech ins plus gekriegt.
eine echte herausforderung die kröte hier... aber nicht mit mir. :laugh:
kurzes statement/zwischenbericht...interessiert dich sicher auch.

Marcus,



Thank you for contacting us. We're dealing with a perceived uncertainty with our license renewal in Albania, and the completion of our deal with Alacer in Turkey, which we are optimistic that it will be done before the end of this month. At this moment we have no definitive, material information to provide on the ongoing meetings with the Albanian government. We still hold our Bulqiza project and licenses. We remain committed to all our projects in the region, including those in Turkey and Serbia where we are forging strategic relationships, and expect that our operations as a whole have a positive effect on our stock in the months to come.

Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 42.882.985 von KMST am 10.03.12 22:47:10Danke !
OK, dann gibt´s vielleicht ein paar good news zeitnah.
Leider ist Albanien dann erstmal weiterhin auf Eis.
Keine Andeutung diesbezüglich.
Wäre hier halt ein Traum gewesen mit Chrom zu verdienen und
nicht verwässern zu müssen.
Vielleicht klappt es ja auch noch. Aber wie Caesars bereits
damals schrieb, rechneten sie auch mit einem Jahr Verzögerung
was Chrom angeht.
Naja man wird sehen, der Kurs sollte sich vorher ja irgendwo
einpendeln und ich sehe ihn am unteren Ende angekommen so langsam.
bid 0,09 ask 0,10

--> next step going

denke mal die wird jetzt vollends geschlachtet und landet irgendwo bei 3 - 5 cents im tiefsten punkt.
muss ich mal überlegen wann ich nächstes mal nachkaufe... vorsichtshalber 7 oder 8 ..dann 5 und nochmal 3... zum schluß auch 1 cent.
von dort kann sie nicht mehr weiterfallen, da in kanada nur 2 nachkommastellen gehandelt werden :D

erinnert mich an 2008.
novaGold von 16 auf 0,4 dann wieder auf 11
breakwater von 3 auf 0,08 -> da konnt man später bei der übernahme dann mit 700% mitnehmen.

werd´s wieder so handhaben und später feiern. EPC ist zwar nur ein explorer im frühstadium, sollte aber mit seinen gebieten gut dabei sein... vor allem wenn aus den angedachten chromverkäufen doch noch was werden sollte.

den abwärtstrend darf man nie unterschätzen leider. de börse will einfach zeigen was sie kann bis auch dem letzten die augen rausfallen, danach wieder andersrum.

interessant ist, daß es gegenüber 2008 überhaupt keine gründ gibt für die kursverfälle. die rohstoffpreise sind nicht eingebrochen wie damals.
merkwürdig, aber die börse will es so haben. respektiere ich und hol mir meine beute dann eben später ab.
der alacer deal kommt meiner meinung nach zu preisen die hier meilenweit entfernt sind...und ich sitz seit tagen auf der 10 und werde nicht bedient, scheinbar sind das nur cross trades.
Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 42.916.952 von KMST am 16.03.12 23:24:39Shares issued to Alacer are issued at the deemed price of $0.37 per Share.

ja das waren noch zeiten... und ich dachte beim erstkauf 28 cad-cents schnäppchen gemacht zu haben ;)

lass sie drin bid 9 cents ask 10 cents hatten wir relativ kurz vor schluß glaub. der kursverfall ist eh nicht ernstzunehmen. da crossen ein paar und schwups ist das ding wieder 20% tiefer.
problem ist halt daß bei so einem chart keiner kauft... naja ausser ich oder du :laugh:
Auch interessant was John Kaiser so schrieb vor einem Jahr

http://www.empireminingcorp.com/i/pdf/related_articles/2011-…

...natürlich war er auch von dem chromprojekt begeistert.

"...we are initiating a Good Absolute Spec Value Buy at $0.52 with a short term accumulation limit of $0.75, and a price target during the next six months of $1-$2 on the basis of the chromite story, and $2.50-$5.00... (...incl der anderen projekte)"

(John Kaiser´s bott-fishing Analysen sind recht angesehen und solide gemacht)

also mal rechnen :D
sollte alles gutgehen:
10 cents zu 5 cad = Faktor 50
wäre man in dieser dreckszeit mal mit 3.000 € investiert z.b.
= 150.000 €

träumen sei mal erlaubt.... mir wär´s grad lieber die machen gar nix mehr und drehen däumchen um eine benötigte KE möglichst weit zu verschieben.
0,09 cad
-> jetzt müßtest du drin sein.
ich kauf bei 0,08 wieder hab ich beschlossen
ok da alles crasht, kauf ich hier bei 0,06 rum wieder und dafür doppelt.
ich denke im low sehen wir hier noch was mit vielleicht 4 oder 5 cents.
aber ob man da direkt reinkommt ist eine andere frage. 6 ist ok denke ich.
wenn albanien wieder grünes licht gibt und die ein oder andere news von bursa kommt, evtl. sehr schnell wieder die late range bei 0,35-0,40 rum.
somit hätte man nach all den qualen in summe einen richtig geilen gewinn gemacht.
reizvolle aufgabe bei dem loser hier :D
Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 42.943.082 von Boersenkrieger am 22.03.12 19:19:21bin dabei, wurde sogar niedriger bedient. ich hoffe die bekommen bursa geklärt ansonsten haben wir von 2 geilen bald gar kein deposit mehr. ich denke alacer will jetzt leider auch tiefer rein.
Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 42.944.060 von KMST am 22.03.12 22:19:20letzter Stand war 0,37 CAD ?

EMPIRE MAKES FINAL PAYMENT TO ACQUIRE 100% OF KARAPINAR AND DEMIRTEPE PROJECTS, TURKEY; FARMS-OUT 51% OF DEMIRTEPE

Empire Mining Corp. has made the final payment of $1.5-million (U.S.) to Alacer Gold Corp. to complete the 100-per-cent acquisition of the Bursa licences in Turkey which host the Karapinar copper-porphyry and Demirtepe copper-gold-silver and molybdenum projects, as last announced on Dec. 23, 2011.

David Cliff, chief executive officer of Empire Mining, commented: "The acquisition of a 100-per-cent interest in the Bursa licences achieves a major milestone for Empire in advancing the Karapinar and Demirtepe projects, and the final condition to attaining that aim, namely the cash payment, was realized without dilution to shareholders -- an impressive accomplishment given current market conditions." Mr. Cliff further stated, "In addition, we accomplished the critical objective of keeping 100 per cent of Karapinar in Empire's hands."

Empire also reports that it has entered into a letter of intent with Columbus Gold Corp., pursuant to which Columbus Gold can earn a 51-per-cent interest in the Bursa licences that host its Demirtepe project by providing a $2-million (U.S.) deposit to Empire and by financing $3-million (U.S.) in exploration expenditures over three years with Empire acting as operator. The parties have agreed that $1.5-million (U.S.) of the deposit is to be used to pay Alacer, and the remaining $500,000 (U.S.) will be used by Empire to finance general working capital and a planned geophysical program at Demirtepe. Upon Columbus Gold having earned a 51-per-cent interest in Demirtepe, a 51-per-cent/49-per-cent joint-venture will be formed, which will be subject to standard dilution provisions.

Robert Giustra, the chairman and a director of Empire, is also the chief executive officer and a director of Columbus Gold. At the outset of Empire's consideration of the Demirtepe transaction, Mr. Giustra declared this conflict of interest to the board and removed himself from any discussions pertaining to this matter. The board was also aware that Empire and Columbus Gold share certain officers in common, and thus created a special committee with the authority to consider, negotiate and, if acceptable, approve the terms and conditions of the transaction. Empire understands that Mr. Giustra similarly informed Columbus Gold's board of his conflict and that Columbus Gold pursued a similar path toward the approval of this transaction.

The parties have agreed to use best efforts to complete a definitive agreement and to close the transaction within three months of the date of the definitive agreement, failing which Empire will be required to repay the deposit immediately with simple interest of 6 per cent per year unless an extension is agreed to by the parties.

Empire has also provided a right of first refusal to Columbus Gold on its Karapinar project, such that in the event that Empire receives an offer from a third party to acquire an interest in or to Karapinar, it will be required to notify Columbus Gold of such terms and offer same thereto, whereby Columbus Gold will have seven days to match such terms.

At any time prior to the closing, Empire will have the right to terminate the letter of intent by returning the deposit with 6-per-cent simple interest per year thereon, paying a $250,000 break fee and refunding Columbus Gold's reasonable expenses. In the event of a third party offer on Karapinar, Empire, however, cannot exercise the break fee until Columbus Gold has had the opportunity to consider the third party terms pursuant to the right of first refusal.

The letter of intent is subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval, an independent fairness opinion in a form satisfactory to both parties and Empire delivering to Columbus Gold a title opinion.
ok. das geldproblem wäre nun gelöst
bursa steht
2 mios + 3 zum explorieren

dafür:
Upon Columbus Gold having earned a 51-per-cent interest in Demirtepe, a 51-per-cent/49-per-cent joint-venture will be formed, which will be subject to standard dilution provisions.


in anbetracht der situation hervorragend gelöst.
ein erfahrenes topmanagement ist halt immer was wert.
hätte mir vom kurs mehr erhofft. aber nu is mal ruhe und die trendwende sollte heute ihren anfang genommen haben.

@KMST

wie gefällt es Dir ?
Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 42.976.420 von Boersenkrieger am 29.03.12 21:55:54nur etwas mehr als 3 mio zum explorieren. von empires 2 mio gehen 1.5 mio cash an alacer und die restlichen 500k will be used by Empire to finance general working capital and a planned geophysical program at Demirtepe.

naja, insgesamt nicht der schlechteste deal aber eben auch keine 100% wie groß angekündigt...vorher warens doch auch schon 65% und nun sinds dann 49%.

auf jeden fall wurde der deal aber bedeutend besser gelöst als gedacht und wie es der kurs aussagt.
Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 42.977.116 von KMST am 30.03.12 06:33:57Empire hat auch noch 3 monate rücktrittsrecht mit folgenden kosten verbunden:

"At any time prior to the closing, Empire will have the right to terminate the letter of intent by returning the deposit with 6-per-cent simple interest per year thereon, paying a $250,000 break fee and refunding Columbus Gold's reasonable expenses. In the event of a third party offer on Karapinar, Empire, however, cannot exercise the break fee until Columbus Gold has had the opportunity to consider the third party terms pursuant to the right of first refusal. "

naja wenn der kurs bis dahin wieder bei 0,35 cad stehen sollte... ...dann schaumer mal :laugh:
in anbetracht der situation ist das ein wirklich sehr guter deal.
danke an die doofen aktionäre die es uns und EPC schwer gemacht haben :mad:

hauptsache sie können bohren und haben dabei noch etwas cash für´s nötigste. um was anderes ging es nicht. die alternative wäre nur eine äußerst extreme verwässerung gewesen !
Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 42.981.540 von Boersenkrieger am 30.03.12 19:11:31naja, mal schauen was noch geht. mit meinem letzten kauf bin ich jetzt erstmal wieder gut vorn, gesamtposi noch im minus^^

wenn die jetzt die theorie untermauern wollen und die ersten löcher gleich ins volle bohren bekommt das ding flügel. angenommen das ganze passiert so dann kotzen hier einige aber ordentlich. *fingers crossed*
Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 42.981.665 von KMST am 30.03.12 19:33:57gutes timing deinerseits.
meine käufe waren alle mist, ausser der letzte zu 0,125 cad.
momentan bei mir -33%
aber bei einer trendwende geht das noch. 1 oder 2 starke wochen und ich sehe grün :D
die nachkauferei bei den abgesägten werten halt ich einfach für das sinnvollste was man machen kann. gründe gab es ja definitiv keine (ausser das problem mit albanien).

was 80% fällt, steigt von unten rauf zumindest 100% (und wäre dann immer noch 60% im minus vom top)
somit reicht es mit nachkäufen nicht tiefer als 50% zu fallen um wieder ins plus zu kommen.
Alles gute uns. Wir sind auf alle fälle die einzigen zwei idioten die an diese story glauben. Wenn das ganze so aufgeht wie wir uns das vorstellen ist der gewinn verdient. From the bottom to the top.
Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 42.982.875 von KMST am 30.03.12 23:58:02:laugh:
ja außer uns hat sich wohl in ganz Deutschland keiner da reinverirrt :cool:
:keks: wir warten auf die ersten löcher. ich fahre jetzt nach ahlen zum fussball, wir hauhen alles kreuz dar quer!:cool: mittlerweile hast du eine ahnung wo die coolen investoren her kommen..
Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 42.983.342 von KMST am 31.03.12 09:37:37hmmm und nu ?
gegurke bei bid/ask 0,095/0,11
zeit zum nachkaufen oder machen wir noch die 6-7 cents.
bin mir unschlüssig. bin bei -48%, unschön.
ein nachkauf brauch ich noch um zügig wieder rauszukommen und grün zu werden bei einer wende.
gemütlich hier geworden. seit einigen tagen bei 0,095 ohne umsatz.
gut ausgeklingt. im ask stehen meist nur 11-12 cents.
Empire Mining wins suit against Albania METE re Bulqiza

http://www.stockwatch.com/News/Item.aspx?bid=Z-C%3aEPC-19635…

aha... es gibt einen Rechtsstreit bzgl Albanien... Wurde das jemals erwähnt ?
Nunja... erste Etappe jedenfalls gewonnen ;)
Empire Reclaims Chromite Project and Wins Albanian Appeal

Vancouver, B.C., July 3, 2012. Empire Mining Corporation (EPC: TSX-V) ("Empire") is pleased to report that it has again won a lawsuit against the Albanian Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Energy ("METE"), and has recovered its Bulqiza-Batra chromite license. As reported on May 29, 2012, Empire has already sued METE and won at trial, METE appealed, but this appeal was not successful and now a second Albanian court has ruled in Empire's favour.

METE has one more opportunity to appeal until July 26, 2012, to the Supreme Court of Albania, notwithstanding, Empire has now recovered its full legal rights to its Bulqiza-Batra chromite license. The license permit all exploration work including; drilling and underground development and evaluation for a twelve month period during which time Empire may apply for full mining rights.

Empire's lawsuit challenges the 2011 METE ruling, which systematically removed regions with the most prospective value from Empire's Bulqiza-Batra license, including areas containing significant historical resources of chromite. Although it explored other avenues to having METE's decision reversed, Empire believed its best recourse was to sue METE. Empire has successfully argued that METE's ruling violates applicable Albanian mining law and that Empire should have been granted the extension on the entire geographical area requested. Empire's position has now been validated by two levels of the Albanian legal system.

Empire's chromite licenses cover the most prospective geological terrain within the productive Bulqiza Ultramafic Massif in eastern Albania. Before the collapse of communism in the late 1980's, Albania was the world's third largest producer of chromite, the majority of which was produced from the Bulqiza Massif. Albania has always been noted as a producer of high quality chromite characterized by high grades (+38% Cr2O3) and metallurgical quality (Cr:Fe ratios of up to 3:1 in lump ores and even higher in concentrates).

Under the 2011 applications made for licence renewal pursuant to the new mining law which mandated size reductions, Empire's licences now consist of the 1.013 km2 Qafe Burreli licence and the recently recovered 5.77 km2 Bulqiza-Batra licence for a total of 6.90 km2 in two distinct project areas containing numerous chromite showings, prospects and past-producing mines. The Bulqiza-Batra license surrounds and extends from the producing Bulqiza and Batra mines* which have aggregate past production of about 20 million tonnes grading 35-42% Cr2O3. Empire's Bulqiza-Batra Licence includes the east and west mineralized extensions of the fold structure controlling and hosting the chromite ores in the Bulqiza and Batra mines* and also includes much of the past producing Thekna mine which is reported to host an historical resource of 330,000 tonnes grading +40% Cr2O3 and where Empire's drilling in 2011 has demonstrated scope for significant expansion.

With the recovery of the Bulqiza-Batra license complete, Empire is considering the best path to advance the Bulqiza chromite project. Empire's exploration efforts to the end of 2011 were based on a substantial reinterpretation of more than 50 years of State geological and mining information. This work identified several starting points for both surface and underground investigations. At the time of the emergence of the license problem plans were already in place and initiatives underway for a series of underground openings to explore, develop and produce high-grade lump chromite, as well as to evaluate sites with near-surface mineralization that is potentially amenable to open pit mining and processing to create a saleable concentrate.

Dave Cliff, the President and CEO of Empire, commented: "This is a momentous event for Empire and its shareholders. Empire has been vindicated and we have reclaimed assets that many thought would be impossible to recover. We're now looking forward to advancing our chromite project for the benefit of our shareholders."

* Some portions of the historical Bulqiza and Batra mines are not included as part of Empire's Bulqiza-Batra Licence.

Empire Options Bursa Licenses in Turkey to First Quantum Minerals in $11.5 Million Deal; Announces Private Placement

http://www.investorpoint.com/news/METALMIN/53650750/


VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 08/20/12 -- Empire Mining Corporation (TSX VENTURE:EPC) ("Empire") is pleased to announce that it has entered into a binding letter agreement (the "FQML Agreement") with First Quantum Minerals Ltd. ("FQML"), subject to certain conditions, respecting Empire's Bursa Licenses, which cover the Demirtepe skarn and Karapinar porphyry projects in Western Turkey ("Bursa").

Empire is also pleased to announce a non-brokered private placement of its common shares ("Common Shares") to raise gross proceeds of between CAN$1,500,000 and CAN$3,000,000 (the "Private Placement"). Empire will offer between 15,000,000 and 30,000,000 Common Shares (no warrants) at a price of CAN$0.10 per share to qualified purchasers.

Under the FQML Agreement, FQML has been granted an option to acquire a 51% interest in Bursa by making a payment to Empire of CAN$1.5 million and completing staged exploration expenditures of CAN$8.5 million within three (3) years, with a minimum firm commitment in the first year of CAN$2.5 million. FQML can earn an additional 19% interest in Bursa for a total interest of 70% by delivering a technical report on Bursa delineating a resource of not less than 1,000,000 tonnes of copper and making a decision advance Bursa to commercial production. Pursuant to the FQML Agreement, FQML has also agreed to subscribe for 15,000,000 Common Shares in the Private Placement, for a total purchase price of $1,500,000.

The FQML Agreement and the Private Placement are subject to approval by the TSX Venture Exchange. Additional details of the FQML Agreement are described below.

Bursa Overview

Drilling by Empire at Demirtepe in 2011 encountered significant grades and intervals of copper-gold-silver and molybdenum skarn mineralization in the Main Zone discovery hole which intersected 47.53 meters of 2.02% Copper, 0.96 gpt Gold and 21.64 gpt Silver, including 8 meters of 9.1% Copper, 4.68 gpt Gold and 95.3 gpt Silver. Ongoing sampling has identified the new Southwest Zone about 1 km to the southwest of the Main Zone. The Southwest Zone consists of a continuous copper-gold anomalous zone currently about 1.8 km long and up to 800 meters wide and still open to the southwest.

Drilling by Empire at Karapinar in 2011 intersected a 60 meter zone of chalcocite enrichment grading 0.93% Copper, 0.11 gpt Gold and 0.017% Molybdenum from a hole depth of 79.6 to 139.6 meters. The secondary enrichment lies beneath a 48 meter zone of oxide mineralization. The hole was one of the easternmost holes drilled at Karapinar, revealing significant expansion potential. Geological mapping and a follow-up IP/Resistivity survey carried-out by Empire located and outlined a strong chargeability anomaly 800 x 800 meters across with circular shape partially exposed at surface. The most western flange of the anomaly correlates with the area where drilling intersected the 60 meter zone of chalcocite enrichment, suggestive of a possible extension of leached porphyry east of the existing deposit.

The FQML Agreement

Empire has agreed to close FQML's tranche of the private placement before closing any other subscriptions in the Private Placement in order to set FQML's ownership percentage in Empire at approximately 19.2%. Thereafter, FQML will have a pre-emptive right to maintain its percentage interest in connection with future equity raises and convertible security exercises, provided that this right will terminate if FQML drops below 10% ownership other than due to contravention of its right or dilution from the exercise of Empire's convertible securities. Empire has agreed not to close the Private Placement prior to obtaining TSX Venture Exchange approval of the private placement and the FQML Agreement.

Following approval from the TSX Venture Exchange and the satisfaction of certain conditions by Empire, pursuant to the FQML Agreement, FQML will be required to make an initial payment of $1,500,000 cash to Empire. Within one year of the effective date (as such term is defined in the FQML Agreement) FQML will spend an additional $2,500,000 in exploration expenditures and will earn a 20% interest in Bursa. To increase its interest to 51%, FQML will have a period of 3 years from the effective date to spend a further $6,000,000 in exploration expenditures thereon. Upon earning a 51% interest in Bursa, FQML will have the option to increase its interest in Bursa to 70% by delivering to Empire: (i) an independent technical report on Bursa delineating a copper resource (combined between one or more of the measured, indicated, or inferred categories) of not less than 1,000,000 tonnes; (ii) a formal document evidencing FQML's decision to mine; and (iii) a first year budget for work on the property. Upon FQML earning a 70% interest in Bursa, a joint venture with Empire will be formed, provided that FQML will have approximately 120 days thereafter to elect to purchase Empire's interest should Empire conclude that it is unable or does not wish to fund its pro-rata share of further work on Bursa.

The FQML Agreement is also subject to a right of first refusal held by Columbus Gold Corp. ("Columbus") under the letter agreement between Empire and Columbus announced March 29, 2012 (the "Columbus Agreement"). Columbus has tentatively waived its right of first refusal over the FQML Agreement, but in order to complete the transaction with FQML, Empire will be required to terminate its deal with Columbus (the "Columbus Termination") by refunding to Columbus its already-paid $2,000,000 (plus interest) deposit, as well as pay a break fee; this termination provision is specifically contemplated under the Columbus Agreement. As disclosed on March 29, 2012, Empire and Columbus each have a committee of independent directors formed to discuss these matters, and the two companies are presently in talks respecting the aforementioned termination. The FQML Agreement is conditional on the Columbus Termination.

In the event that FQML earns a 70% interest in Bursa under the FQML Agreement, it will have the right to acquire Empire's interest in Bursa in the event that Empire experiences a change of control by one or more persons acting jointly or in concert, exclusive of FQML, acquiring ownership of greater than 50% of the issued and outstanding shares of Empire. Under this option, FQML will have 120 days to acquire Empire's interest in Bursa by (i) preparing an updated independent technical report; (ii) commissioning an independent valuation based on such technical report and other material information in order to establish a valuation price; and (iii) purchasing Empire's interest in cash for the aforementioned valuation price.

Under the FQML Agreement, Empire will act as manager of Bursa for the first year following the effective date of the agreement. After this first year, FQML will have the right to replace Empire by providing 60 days' notice of such replacement to Empire. The FQML Agreement further provides an area of interest on any license or mineral rights within 5km outside the boundaries of the licenses that constitute Bursa. The transactions contemplated by the FQML Agreement are also conditional on Empire transferring legal title to Bursa from Alacer Gold Corp. The FQML Agreement contains other terms and conditions including without limitation provisions as to dilution, force majeure, right of first refusal and that the FQML Agreement will be replaced by a definitive agreement in due course.

All core was sawn in half with sample widths determined by geology and mineralization. Individual samples within visible mineralization did not exceed 1.0 m, while the maximum sample interval was 2.0 m. Samples were bagged, security tagged and sent to the ALS Chemex sample preparation facility in Izmir, Turkey and, following preparation, to the ALS Chemex laboratory in Vancouver. Gold was determined by fire assay with AA finish, ore grade repeats were run with ICP-AES and a total of 33 elements determined by ICP after four-acid digestion. Blank, replicate and Certified Reference Material QA/QC samples were distributed regularly in the assayed batches and their total numbers are presented in Table 1 below.

Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 43.512.130 von KMST am 20.08.12 15:14:29ja, hab´s soeben gelesen. klasse !
mehr geht bei dem kurs nicht. schade.
hat alles hand und fuss bisher.
bin immer noch drin, letzter nachkauf schon lange her zu 0,12 cad
mal sehen ob sie wieder richtig kommen, sprich 0,30er bereich auf long

vermisse eigentlich noch eine klare ansage bzgl. albanien.
eigentlich hat man den prozeß ja gewonnen.
trotzdem noch etwas schwammig wie es da weitergeht.

aber soweit alles ok. und vor allem bursa hat wohl interesse geweckt. das reicht bei der marktkap schon völlig aus.
heute rocken wir gut, 14 cent zur zeit...manche leute brauchen eben etwas länger.
und schwups sind wir zumindest mit einem teil unserer shares wieder nett im plus. bei den engen werten geht das manchmal eben echt schnell. mal sehen wann die ersten deutschen investoren den deal entdecken. ich vermute ja, dass die wenigen trades in deutschland nur von mm´s sind, welche den kurs etwas interessant gestalten. gestern plus 70%, heute wieder -40%. die swings sollen sicherlich nur locken.
Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 43.517.021 von KMST am 21.08.12 17:16:48deutsche kurse kannst du eh vergessen.
ich kauf auch größere ausländische titel nur noch im heimatland.
von mir aus können sie die deutsche börse dichtmachen :p
new vom 3. juli bzgl Albanien nochmal:

"Under the 2011 applications made for licence renewal pursuant to the new mining law which mandated size reductions, Empire's licences now consist of the 1.013 km2 Qafe Burreli licence and the recently recovered 5.77 km2 Bulqiza-Batra licence for a total of 6.90 km2 in two distinct project areas containing numerous chromite showings, prospects and past-producing mines. "


...

The Bulqiza-Batra License (38.8 km2) covers direct extensions of the Bulqiza-Batra chromite ore structure and a number of important subsidiary deposits including the Thekna, Lugu Gjat-10 Korriku, and Ternova mines. Principal targets include untested extensions of the west and east limbs of the folded Batra ore structure, and strike and dip extensions of the Thekna podiform deposits, all of which have potential for several million tonnes of chromite ore. Existing, state-reported resources within the license area (not confirmed to NI 43-101 standards) total over 4 million tonnes of which Empire is believed to control about half.

The Bulqiza Veriore License (6.9 km2) contains the projected extension of the Bulqiza mine ore structure, as well as wide zones of disseminated mineralization in outcrop potentially amenable to surface mining, north of the Val Kali Valley. Depth to the prospective Bulqiza horizon is undetermined; however, the target is repetition of the world-class Bulqiza orebody with potential for +10 million tonnes.

The Qafe Burreli License (6.1 km2) contains multiple, partially explored chromite deposits near the former Shkalla Mine in northwest Bulqiza. The deposits in this area are characterized by high grades and long plunge lengths (1.2 km at Shkalla) with potential for both modest-scale but high grade surface mineable deposits and more extensive deeper ores amenable to underground development.

The Liqeni i Dhive License (12.7 km2) covers the partially developed Liqeni i Dhive, Maja e Hurdhes and Liqeni i Dervishit mines, with collective, state reported resources of 152,000 tonnes @ 45% Cr2O3, and a number of less developed satellite deposits. The potential on the Liqeni i Dhive License is for near term development of high grade, surface mineable deposits as well as extensive "Shkalla-type" ores at greater depths.


----------------------------------------------------------------------

Heißt das, daß das Lizensgebiet entsprechend zusammengeschmolzen ist und die anderen aufgelisteten Gebiete wegfallen ? :confused:
ANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, Sep 06, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- Empire Mining Corporation CA:EPC -8.33% ("Empire" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has closed the first tranche of its non-brokered private placement announced on August 20, 2012, under which the Company expects to sell up to 30,000,000 common shares (each, a "Share") at $0.10 per Share (the "Private Placement"). Under the first tranche, Empire has issued and sold 15,000,000 Shares to First Quantum Minerals Ltd. ("FQML") for gross proceeds of $1,500,000; Empire will use such funds in connection with its Bursa property in Western Turkey ("Bursa") and for general working capital purposes. The Shares issued to FQML are subject to a four-month hold period expiring on January 6, 2013.

FQML now holds 15,000,000 Shares, representing approximately 19.2% of the issued and outstanding Shares of the Company. Pursuant to the terms of the Bursa letter agreement between Empire and FQML announced on August 20, 2012, Empire is deemed to have granted a pre-emptive right to FQML whereby it may elect to participate in future equity offerings of Shares in order to maintain the lower of: (i) a 19.2% ownership interest of the Company; or (ii) the percentage ownership interest of the Company held by FQML as at the announcement of such offering. FQML will also have the right to maintain its ownership interest in the Company after the exercise of Empire convertible securities. FQML will retain its pre-emptive right for as long as it holds 10% or more of Empire's issued and outstanding Shares, unless it drops below such figure due to a violation of its pre-emptive right or due to the exercise of Empire convertible securities prior to FQML having the opportunity to purchase Shares in response thereto.

bis 0,11 ask 0,125

da rum scheint sie sich einzupendeln fürs erste... etwas tief leider
wenn der deal komplett abgeschlossen ist und die weiteren investoren zu 10 cent im boot sind, dürfte die action beginnen. zum glück ist empire der operator, da werden wir wohl öffters ne news bekommen
Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 43.582.656 von KMST am 08.09.12 14:19:41ja mal sehen..
gestern kaufrduck. viel umsatz für EPC. bid ask 0,135 zu 0,15 cad
das sieht schon einiges besser aus :D
Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 43.582.656 von KMST am 08.09.12 14:19:41Problem ist eben daß die Schnitzel kleiner werden.
Aber sie gehen den absolut richtigen Weg und sind begehrt.

Die Sache mit albanien versteh ich aber nicht ganz.
also das gebiet mit den rechten ist deutlich kleiner geworden, oder ?
können sie da ansonsten jetzt uneingeschränkt alels wieder aufnehmen ?

finde es etwas undurchsichtig.
Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 43.582.689 von Boersenkrieger am 08.09.12 14:46:38ist kleiner geworden...ich denke auch das sie sich aus albanien zurückziehen werden.
first hat nen klaren kupferfokus. die werden jetzt sicher eher mal nach serbien schauen. reservoir hats vorgemacht was man dort finden kann. sofort freeport mcmoran jv.

Reservoir Minerals Drills 160 Metres Grading 10.16% Copper Equivalent at Timok Project
Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 43.582.895 von KMST am 08.09.12 17:45:54ok wahnsinn die grades bei der länge.. nie was besseres gelesen.

naja empire wollte ja mal chrom aus albanien schnell produzieren und das erz am hafen verkaufen. eigentlich um möglichst früh cash-flow-positiv zu sein. das war der reiz hier zu investieren.
jetzt haben sie um die rechte gekämpft und gewonnen und dann ein rückzug ?
es kommt halt keine news mehr in die richtung.

aber dann müßt ich mich schon fragen ob es noch sinn macht hier investiert zu bleiben
Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 43.582.895 von KMST am 08.09.12 17:45:54Reservoir Minerals ist ja der hammer. tsx ab ende 2011 und schon ein tenbagger.
naja die gebiete bei empire geben das nach historie nicht her.
da gehts eher um 1% oder 2%. ich dachte eigentlich eher daß man serbien aus dem programm nimmt.

bin zwar noch sehr rot und erst um die 0,20 cad wieder grün, aber überlege mir langsam hier auszusteigen wieder.
reservoir hat das bis vor kurzen auch nicht. grades waren hier auch nur 0,8-1% cu.
die dinger die first quantum letztlich übernommen hat haben allesamt gut performt. vorallem macht first eigentlich keine jv. die drillen was das zeug hält und machen ne studie. falls das ergebnis überzeugt wird komplett gekauft, falls nicht verkauft.
ich denke die liegenschaft gibt was her, die empire jungs erkennen was bursa bringen kann.
first ebenso deshalb haben die das gleich mit in den vertrag genommen: FQML can earn an additional 19% interest in Bursa for a total interest of 70% by delivering a technical report on Bursa delineating a resource of not less than 1,000,000 tonnes of copper and making a decision advance Bursa to commercial production.
Antwort auf Beitrag Nr.: 43.587.273 von KMST am 10.09.12 18:03:08klar gibt bursa das her... die marktkap dafür ist auch wirklich nicht zu hoch.
nur dachte ich mal weil Clarke /director mit chrom viel erfahrung hat bzgl seiner vergangenheit und dazu eine sehr erfolgreiche und die liegenschaft in albanien top ist, dass da nebenher auch was geht.
das war eigentlich das bonbon hier... im moment gibt es aber gar keine aeusserungen zu albanien.
hast du da neuere infos ?
