Vivakor continues to focus on asset accrual in their Metals Business Unit as it operates its multiple precious metal extraction processing machines. Vivakor realizes a very strong precious metals yield through a highly efficient and optimized mining extraction process that is proprietary with a very low cost basis for ore that is processed. Additionally, Vivakor introduced a strong move into the Energy Sector. The Company developed over the past year a proprietary, environmentally clean solvent and process for extraction of oil from the Utah Oil Sands. They picked up land in the area near Vernal, UT as they acquired the technology and methodology for extraction of the high-value oil sands.

Chairman and CEO Matt Nicosia stated, “We are very pleased that we have been able to recognize eight straight quarters of overall positive financial results. Continued precious metals production enables us to increase our total assets for the Company while we continue to contain costs and reduce our liabilities. We continue to realize our longer-range plan for the Company by increasing our holdings through continued accumulation of strategic, high value assets while still keeping our operating costs low. We announced our objective to move into the energy sector and our effort has resulted in exciting announcements during the past several months. Vivakor continues to move swiftly as it meets its goals and objectives, while maintaining a prudent business plan that is supported through growth of the overall asset base and its valuation for our shareholders. We want to express our appreciation to our shareholders and supporters.”
