Paradigm Resource Announces Strategic Investment in Provider of Breakthrough Technology for the Extraction Recovery of Latent Precious Metals from Complex Ores

NEW YORK, July 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Paradigm Resource Management Corporation (“Paradigm Resource” or the “Company”; OTCBB: PRDC) is pleased to announce that it has signed a memorandum of understanding with AMSA Development Technology Co. Ltd., the major shareholder of TOSS Plasma Technologies Limited (“TPT“), to acquire a strategic equity interest in TPT.

Founded in 2003, TPT has developed a proprietary technology and processing system, using high temperature (>8,000oC) radio frequency plasma technology, to extract precious metals from certain types of complex ores. TPT is headquartered in Tokyo with a pilot plant and research center based in Yamagata prefecture in Japan.

“Our goal is to pave the way for mining companies to tap into hidden, untapped and undervalued assets in complex ore mines that may or may not have been excavated,” stated Mr. Takanori Ted Ozaki, TPT‘s Founder and CEO. “This will have a major structural impact on the mining industry. Complex ore mines of little value can transform into valuable assets with the application of TPT‘s technology.”

TPT has spent most of its efforts to-date on R&D, sourcing and selecting complex ores, and establishing a pilot plant to perform ongoing sample ore processing and demonstrations. The processed sample ores are sent to renowned laboratories for independent assays of gold, silver, and other PGM metals. TPT‘s target market is a traditional industry with an abundance of complex ores containing “latent” precious metals that have not been exploited due to technical limitation of available minerals processing technologies. The RF Plasma technology provides the technical breakthrough that has been validated by the phenomenal post-processing assay results on recovered precious metals from select complex ores.

According to Mr. Ozaki, “TPT is now entering the market commercialization phase and the business opportunity we present is most compelling. Our technology is brilliant, unique and without any known competition. It is also a green technology with no environmental hazards. The target market is a captive market and we hold the key to it.

“We have already seen good test results from complex ores found in mainland China, Indonesia and Myanmar. We are very confident that we can identify more and more complex ores, especially in regions that are rich in mineral resources.”

Paradigm Resource will own 30% of the outstanding shares of TPT in exchange for 20% (post-transaction) of newly issued common shares of the Company. Mr. Ozaki will be replacing Mr. David M. Price as the new Chief Executive Officer of Paradigm Resource while Mr. Price will remain with the Company as executive director. The transaction is expected to close on or before July 31, 2013.
