MineCore Collaborates With Industry Experts for White Papers

SAN JOSE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 06/20/08 -- MineCore International, Inc. ("MineCore") (PINKSHEETS: MCIO) is collaborating with industry experts to develop a series of detailed white papers to research the industrial applications of natural sapphires in the semiconductor, solar cell, LED and other applicable technology industries. The white papers will be prepared by a consortium of renowned engineers and researchers with backgrounds from various technology giants such as Intel and IBM.

The purpose of the white papers is to further validate MineCore's new strategy of supplying its natural sapphires to the technology industry from its planned sapphire extraction operations in Madagascar from the waste sapphire that does not meet the quality of a sapphire gemstone.

MineCore plans to monetize this 'waste' surplus by supplying the semiconductor, solar cell and LED industries. The white papers will provide the company and shareholders with intricate details of the applications, market scope and impact on MineCore's growth prospects.

"We are pleased to be collaborating with specialists from the high tech industry to better understand the growing market for natural sapphires through a combination of consolidated research data and industry expert references," stated Jerry G. Mikolajczyk, MineCore Chairman and COO. "We believe that sapphire will be an important component in providing energy from solar panels while at the same time be a component of LEDs that use less electricity than our current incandescent lamps. What a wonderful combination, energy producer and energy saver!" exclaimed Mr. Mikolajczyk. "Our future state of the art sorting facility will separate the high quality sapphire gemstones from the low quality sapphire gemstones using high tech equipment. What might be viewed as waste or scrap in the gemstone industry will be prized sapphire in the high tech industry," he further added. "We expect literally tons of sapphire that will not meet our standards as a quality sapphire gemstone."
