TWDL Ships Calcium Carbonate to Test Effectiveness in Oil Spill Clean Up

Texas Wyoming Drilling, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: TWDL) a diversified gold, mineral and rock mining company, announces that they are shipping calcium carbonate to the Gulf States to test its effectiveness in cleaning up the oil spill.

Global Communications of New Orleans has been commissioned to represent TWDL in the entire coastal region and they will supervise the tests for BP. TWDL's product, recently named ZorbagreenZ, is a granular absorbent that has been successfully tested as an adjunct on oil spills. The Company has a stockpile of an estimated 300,000 tons of the mineral ready and waiting for approval to be used in the clean up.

Lester Mornay, a spokesperson for Global, says, "I agree with the experts who believe that packaging the calcium carbonate in 50 lb. bags and distributing them along the shoreline may be the way to go. On the other hand, transporting the product in bulk by truck, rail or plane from Nevada is another possibility."

Texas Wyoming Drilling is leading the way in this effort to utilize calcium carbonate to clean up the oil spill. Not only does the TWDL mining location in Logandale, Nevada have the product stockpiled and ready for immediate shipment, but it is also gearing up to add another shift to meet the anticipated need for millions of additional tons of the oil absorbing mineral.

Dr. Robert J. Michet, who is on the board of TWDL, says, "The Coast Guard, BP and Halliburtan (advisors to BP) have all been advised regarding the feasibility of using calcium carbonate as a means of cleaning up the oil spill in the Gulf area."
