Royal Mines and Minerals Corp. Gold Technology Update

HENDERSON, NV–(Marketwired – Jun 1, 2016) –  Royal Mines & Minerals Corp. (OTCBB: RYMM) (Royal Mines) is pleased to provide an important announcement on the development of its technology for the recovery of gold from coal ash.

Over the past 24 months, Royal Mines has been working with one of the world’s major gold mining companies in further development of its mining technology process, with one of the world’s largest cement companies (a major coal ash consumer) and with a coal ash producer that has over 30 million tons of coal ash in a landfill while it continues to produce another 400,000 tons annually. Royal Mines has executed 60-month non-disclosure agreements with these companies.

Copper State Analytical Lab (CSAL), an ISO certified lab and registered assayer in the state of Arizona, tested and evaluated Royal Mines’ proprietary process of exposing and recovering gold from coal ash not previously thought to contain levels of measureable gold. CSAL reported 0.274 and 0.24 ounces of gold per ton using a Parr Bomb Assay and reported 0.163 and 0.139 ounces of gold per ton using a Fire Assay. Mr. Andrew Shah BS (Chemistry), of CSAL, is an Arizona Registered Assayer with over 25 years of experience in the field of extractive metallurgy, mineral processing, research and developing and assaying. (See CSAL’s independent process report attached: http://media.marketwire.com/attachments/201605/96949_151203CSALCustodialProjectReportOriginal.pdf)

Since the release of the CSAL report, Royal Mines has been getting similar results. Ian Matheson, CEO of Royal Mines, realizes the company’s technology can play a major role in moving the gold industry forward comparable to the effect fracking had on the gas industry. The average ounces of gold per ton of ore of a major mining company is approximately 0.055.

Royal Mines’ next objectives are to enter into a joint venture with a coal ash producer to secure a source of coal ash, while continuing to improve upon its technology.

South Africa: Mfuleni’s Homemade Gym

Aleas Stokwe used his personal savings to start a gym in his home for his neighbourhood

For the past 16 years, residents of Mfuleni Township have had access to a gym, thanks to the initiative and continued effort of Aleas Stokwe.

“I noticed how active the residents of the community were, and thought that a gym would be very useful for all of us” says Stokwe. In 1999, he used personal savings to buy a single bench press and set of weights in a small section of his own house.

Many residents quickly signed up for the gym, allowing Stokwe to purchase more equipment and space. Today, dozens of weight machines, exercise cycles, and benches are crowded into a 20m2 extension to his house. More than 70 residents pay the R80 monthly membership fee.

Although he is the sole manager of the gym, Stokwe still has to divide his time between it and a local shop that he owns. Even while working two jobs, Stokwe found the time to plan and build all the extensions to the gym.

He sees his gym as a way to foster pride in the community, and combat negative stereotypes of the township. In the future, Stokwe wants to make the gym more accessible by expanding the size and adding amenities such as showers and toilets.

South African President Jacob Zuma has joined world leaders in extending condolences to the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic (SADR) on the death of President Mohamed Abdelaziz.

President Zuma also conveyed on Wednesday his condolences to the wife and family of President Abdelazi, who died on Tuesday following a long illness.

President Zuma hailed President Abdelaziz as a committed cadre who dedicated his life to the struggle for the independence of the Sahrawi people from colonisation.

“He was a founding member of the Polisario Front and until his passing had remained committed to the process of peaceful negotiations under the auspices of the United Nations for the holding of a referendum on the self-determination of Western Sahara,” said President Zuma.

South Africa, added President Zuma, remained committed to continue supporting the right to self-determination of the people of Western Sahara through the UN-led negotiations and with the support of the African Union (AU).

The African Union has also extended condolences to the Sahrawi people. “Our hearts and prayers are with you as you mourn the death of your leader and beloved President. Your loss is our loss,” said AU Commission Chairperson Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma.

Dlamini-Zuma has ordered the flags of the African Union and that of the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic at the AU headquarters and all its representational offices to fly at half-mast for three days, from Wednesday.

Dlamini-Zuma urged the Sahrawi people to let the memories of President Abdelaziz spur them on as they continued the struggle for liberation which he had been at the forefront of for over 40 years.

The AU Commission chairperson encouraged the Sahrawi people, as well as their allies, to forge on with the struggle to attain their right to self-determination until they were liberated and independence was attained to fulfil one the dream and goals of President Abdelaziz.

“The African Union reiterates its continued support and unwavering solidarity with the Government and people of Sahrawi Republic,” she said.
