Pancontinental Uranium Corporation: Charley Creek REE Project Scoping Study Delivers Robust Economics for a Long-Life, Low Capital Cost Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/16/13 -- Pancontinental Uranium Corporation (TSX VENTURE:PUC) ("Pancon" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that its Joint Venture partner, Crossland Uranium Mines Limited (ASX:CUX) ("Crossland"), issued two press releases Monday in Australia. Both are related to the publication of the JV's JORC-compliant Charley Creek REE Scoping Study. The first is an extensive summary and review of the Scoping Study and the second is their latest investor presentation on Charley Creek. Both are accessible through the links provided in this release.

The JORC-compliant Charley Creek Scoping Study was conducted by MSP Engineering, an independent consultant, and was overseen by Crossland's Chief Operating Officer Tony Chamberlain. It details capital and operating cost estimates for all of the major facets of the Charley Creek REE Project including mining operations, wet and dry plant mineral concentration facilities, REO refinery, infrastructure, and water supply. The study assumes construction of a wet and dry mineral concentrator to produce a high grade (40%+) TREO concentrate followed by onsite refining to remove uranium, thorium and major gangue elements to yield a high purity mixed rare earth carbonate product.

Pancon President and CEO, Rick Mark states: "This is a major milestone that we believe ranks Charley Creek high amongst other REE development projects, worldwide. Charley Creek's alluvial deposits mean lower mining costs. We have a preponderance of HREEs, which means we can produce the Rare Earths that are in great demand. The composition of the ore is amenable to recovery by existing well-proven methods and these attributes contribute to construction costs of relatively low magnitude. The project is situated in close proximity to the necessary mining infrastructure in the Alice Springs area, including rail to the port of Darwin in the Northern Territory. And finally, Australia is a respected political jurisdiction for mining. We are looking forward to taking this report to the investment community as well as the Governments and Companies associated with Rare Earth production and consumption."

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
