Silver Butte to Enter Coal Industry
SANDPOINT, Idaho, June 24, 2008 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX/ -- On June 23, 2008 Silver Butte entered into a Letter of Intent for a share exchange with Blue Arch Coal Company, a Wyoming corporation ("Blue Arch"). Blue Arch Coal Company is a privately held corporation that currently owns options to acquire four state coal leases in the Powder River Basin of Wyoming. The leases are estimated to contain 148.3 million tons of proven sub-bituminous coal reserves.
Under the terms of the proposed share exchange, at closing, each of the approximately 220,500,000 then outstanding shares of Blue Ach will be exchanged for shares of Silver Butte on a one for one basis (i.e. one share of Silver Butte will be issued in exchange for one share of Blue Arch). Closing of the transaction is contingent upon completion of Due Diligence by each corporation and negotiation of a definitive Share Exchange Agreement which must be approved by the Board of Directors of Silver Butte and Blue Arch and by the shareholders of Blue Arch holding majority of the outstanding shares of Blue Arch Common Stock. The Share Exchange Agreement will contain, among other conditions, a requirement that prior to closing Blue Arch shall have obtained equity financing in the minimum amount of $3million. After closing of the transaction it is anticipated that there will be a 1:5 reverse split of the Silver Butte Common stock and that Silver Butte shall amend its Articles of Incorporation changing the name of the Corporation to Blue Arch Energy, Inc.
