Active Control Receives First of Five Purchase Orders from Magnum Coal, Totaling $1.8 Million

Wednesday, November 21st, 2007

Active Control Technology Inc. announce that it has received the first of five purchase orders for ActiveMineTM, the company’s two-way wireless voice communications, tracking and data system, from Charleston, West Virginia-based Magnum Coal. The total value of all five orders is $1.8 million.
Magnum, a major coal mine operator, will place ActiveMine in five of its West Virginia mines. The company expects to complete the installations within the timeframe mandated under state regulations.
The order, which is subject to certain conditions including regulatory approval of ActiveMine by the U.S. Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA), will proceed initially with an installation in one mine. ActiveMine will be installed in the other four mines after the first system becomes fully functional.
“We look forward to delivering the safety and operational benefits of ActiveMine to each of the five mines,” said Steve Barrett, President and CEO, Active Control. “At the same time, we remain fully engaged in discussions for additional purchases with other mine operators in West Virginia and other states.”
ActiveMine’s communications, data and tracking system enables monitoring of production, personnel and equipment in all types of surface and underground mining environments, including coal and base metal mines. The system is designed to:
– Operate on a 100 percent wireless Wi-Fi network backbone.
– Be less susceptible to water and mechanical damage of all sorts, including rock fall.
– Use open-standards technology.
– Meet federal MINER Act requirements for wireless systems as established in MSHA policies.
– Provide four-day intrinsically safe battery back-up and power supply.
