April 30, 2010

In February of this year, Stans Energy Corp.’s 100% owned subsidiary, Stans Energy Kg, retained the services of a number of local contractors to assist the company in the development of Kutessay II and the exploration of the Aktyuz Ore Field (AOF). The responsibilities of each contractor in the implementation of our comprehensive program are as follows:

  1. Complete a JORC resource estimate for Kutessay II, to confirm the Kyrgyz State Reserve Committee’s historic reserve estimate with 3D modelling of the deposit. Open pit mining recommendations will be included – Kazakhstan Mineral Company Ltd., Bishkek Branch
  2. Underground drift resampling to confirm Kutessay II historic adit sampling and drilling data – Tien Shan Gold Ltd.
  3. Conduct a review of the technology used in the existing mill and Plant 1 of the Kyrgyz Chemical & Metallurgical Plant (KCMP) to propose recommendations for improvements of the previous rare earth element (REE) concentrate production process – Information and Research Centre Ltd. (Certified Laboratory)
  4. Develop an exploration program for REE mineralization of the AOF – Asiarudproject Corporation
  5. Prepare a summary of the AOF historic geological, geophysical and geochemical data and plan the summer geophysical and drilling program – Tien Shan Ltd.

As of April 20th, Stans has received reports with recommendations for items 3-5 above. The 3D model of the existing pit and ore body has been developed and the existing drift and cross cuts at 2263 m in elevation have been opened for re-sampling. Based on the information provided in the reports and work done to date, the following 2010 summer program will be completed to plan the redevelopment of the Kutessay II mine:

  • Initial prospecting program on the known REE mineralized zones of the AOF to identify and confirm drill targets.
  • Detailed geophysical program to determine the shape and size of the Kutessay II deposit below the 2213 m horizon. The geophysical results will be used to evaluate other known targets in the AOF.
  • Deep drilling under the 2213 m horizon of Kutessay II to confirm and possibly expand the historical REE tonnage estimate.
  • Bulk sampling of stockpiles in the Kutessay II pit, sampling of the 2263 m adit and core sampling from the drill holes planned above. Under the supervision of Dr. V Kosynkin, Information and Research Centre Ltd. will use these samples to conduct milling, recovery and concentrate upgrade tests.
  • Dr. V. Kosynkin will assess and make recommendations for any technological and/or efficiency improvements for KCMP. Included will be a recommendation for the KCMP’s possible integration with the overall Kutessay II mine re-development program.

Stans Energy Corp. expects to have the results of these programs by the fall, at which time, the company will proceed with a feasibility study under the supervision of its Advisory Board.
