Blackbridge has shown confidence in the Company's capabilities and our vision by their proposed investment and we are looking forward to working closely with them as we progress through the SEC review process.
Alexander Dillon, CIO of Blackbridge Capital added,“We looked at Pershing Resources and saw an interesting opportunity in the micro-cap/small-cap space for mining. Further investigation revealed a fit for our investment criteria and our portfolio profile. With precious metals prices having seen their lows in January of this year, we saw the Company was positioned well to benefit from an upturn in the commodity markets. Management has demonstrated a steady hand and prudent decision making through very difficult market conditions and the time is right for a risk on position. We are looking forward to working with the Company as it moves through the regulatory approval process.

About Pershing Resources Company
The Company is a development stage precious metals producer, focused on precious metal ores and mining projects located primarily in Nevada and Arizona. The Company is based in Reno, Nevada and, has established a pilot mill and development facility near Kingman, Arizona.
Our strategy is built on three basic components. First, the acquisition of U.S. domestic properties near mines with historical precious metals production. Second, the development of high tonnage projects on commercially viable grades of precious metals with proximity to historical occurrences. Third, the application of leading edge technologies to develop highly efficient and environmentally favorable extraction and recovery processes. This three-tier strategy supports our short and long-term goals of obtaining profitability and growing shareholder value through expansion. Supplemental to our overall strategy, we are focused on five key attributes. Those being; the pursuit of quality growth, maintaining low cash costs, prudent financing and fiduciary practices, establishing and building a strong balance sheet and conducting business in a responsible manner.
The Company's current assets are comprised of three properties with projects currently in development. The largest being the Marco Project which is a 1,100 acre site near Lovelock, Nevada. The Marco Claims were acquired in 2004. Two additional projects were acquired in 2015. The New Enterprise Project totals 160 acres near Kingman, Arizona and the Gold Lake Project, which is currently a forty acre site, also near Kingman, Arizona.
All of the properties have been previously mined and more recently re-assayed and explored for new target areas. The Company is presently in various stages of exploration, planning and pre-production on each of these properties. We continue looking to add to our portfolio of mining properties as well. As opportunities arise, the Company will seek to strengthen its balance sheet through acquisition. We continue to review and consider new mining projects in the western United States. The Company is committed to responsible mining practices and, we believe we are well positioned to deliver sustained growth and performance for years to come.
