Thursday, December 8th, 2011

British Virgin Islands-incorporated telecommunications company Qiao Xing Universal Resources, Inc. announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Chifeng Haozhou Mining Co., Ltd., has suspended mining operations at its copper-molybdenum poly-metallic mine, located in Inner Mongolia, China. This was decided after the receipt of safety-inspection report from the inspection team based at the open-pit mining area. In the course of preliminary investigation, it was stated that the structural integrity of the mining-waste containment dam may have been compromised because of massive rainfall and flooding in this region of China in July-August 2011.

For the safety of company’s employees as well as for environmental protection concerns, the BVI company has ordered an immediate suspension of the molybdenum mining operation in order to further investigate the situation.

At the current moment, Qiao Xing Universal Resources is actively monitoring the mining-waste containment reservoir, and also is evaluating possible remedial options to fix the containment dam and resume mining operation as soon as possible.
