Freeport Confirms Feasibility of Marine Logistics at Hutton

Freeport Resources Inc. (FRI.V) is pleased to announce the bulk-loading strategy required for commercial-scale production at its Hutton Garnet Beaches project has proven feasible. Recent field work has shown site access by large commercial vessels is possible and the site is very suitable for landing. A tug and two barges were brought to South Beach to test the marine operational plan for exploiting the garnet sands. A detailed route to shore was established and recorded by a registered Marine Surveyor. Enough marine data was collected to establish the practicality of full-scale production -- a landmark development for the Hutton project. Freeport greatly appreciates support by the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador's Junior Exploration Assistance program, an incentive program encouraging mineral exploration. Please see photos of the marine access study at Point-Vim-NT1032, Sappatak-NT1032-Ryans-Bay and South-Beach. Additional photos will be made available soon at the Hutton photo gallery on Freeport's website.
