Lux Energy Corp Enters Into Negotiations for Participation in Significant Natural Gas Prospect
Lux Energy Corp. (OTCBB: LUXED), an oil and gas production and exploration company, announced that it has entered into negotiations to participate in significant natural gas prospect in South Eastern Alberta. Lux is seeking an agreement for a 50% working interest in eight development NG leases in the sweet gas rich areas of Medicine Hat.
Southern Alberta gas plays have produced thousands of wells over the past several decades. This area is historically famous in oil and gas circles for low cost, high BTU content reservoirs in the Milk River and Medicine Hat geological formations. The arena of petroleum spans 10,000 square kilometers of Sandstone Geology starting at the Foothills and stretching into Saskatchewan.
The prospect will involve a drilling program of 20 to 30 wells per section drilled to depths of 800 meters. Reservoir life is estimated at between 13 to 30 years. The project has outstanding economies. Wells can be drilled, completed and tied into established gathering, processing and delivery infrastructure within 30 days. In addition, the joint venture operator advises that recent technical advances in this play have increased potential recoveries and increased production.
Shane Broesky, President of Lux Energy Corp, comments, "Medicine Hat is an exceptional opportunity which became available with our partners in other areas. Medicine Hat, Central Alberta, Northern B.C. and Oklahoma are all on the screen. We intend to take advantage of the recent upsurge in NG prices. Recent acquisitions by petroleum super majors indicate very strong future natural gas products."

Metalink Ltd. (Nasdaq: MTLK) announced that on November 30, 2009, it received a NASDAQ Staff determination letter, notifying the Company that it has not complied with NASDAQ Marketplace Rule 5550(a).
In accordance with the Company's plan to regain compliance, the Company has requested its shareholders to authorize the Company's Board of Directors to effect a reverse share split of all of the Company's Ordinary Shares at a ratio not to exceed one-for-ten, in its annual shareholders' meeting scheduled to take place on December 29, 2009.
The Company had initially been notified by NASDAQ on August 13, 2008, that the bid price of its common stock had closed at less than $1.00 per share over the previous 30 consecutive business days. NASDAQ suspended the enforcement of the bid price requirement from October 16, 2008 through July 31, 2009 and upon reinstatement of the rules the Company had until November 27, 2009, to regain compliance.
On September 29, 2009 the Company received notice from the NASDAQ Staff that it no longer complied with the minimum $2,500,000 in stockholders' equity requirement. The Company timely submitted a plan to regain compliance with the equity requirement, however as the Company has not regained compliance with the minimum $1 bid price requirement the NASDAQ Staff has determined to delist its securities from the Capital Market.
Accordingly, unless the Company requests an appeal of this determination, trading of its common stock will be suspended at the opening of business on December 9, 2009 and its common stock will be removed from listing and registration on The NASDAQ Stock Market.
The Company intends to file the required appeal of the Staff's determination to a NASDAQ Hearings Panel ("Panel"), pursuant to the procedures set forth in the NASDAQ Marketplace Rule 5800 Series. A hearing request will stay the delisting of the Company's securities pending the Panel's decision. However, there can be no assurances that the Hearings Panel will grant such request.

Sierra Gold Corporation Positioned to Increase Gold Production Tenfold With Arrival of New Processing Plants
Sierra Gold Corporation (OTC: SGCP) announced that the two new 10-ton, state-of-the-art, gold processing plants arrived in Sierra Leone last week. These plants will enable the company to process up to 20 tons per hour and boast a 95-98 percent recovery rate.

Our figures are based on 8 hours per day with a past recovery rate of 4.5 grams of gold per ton. The plans are to operate 300 days per year.
In the area of communication, we launched a new website recently as a first step to keep our shareholders better informed.

Target Development Group in Pursuit of Hemdale
Multiple-Oscar-Winning Independent Studio Label Pegged for Acquisition
Target Development Group, Inc. (OTC: TDGI), the parent company of entertainment distributor Hannover House, is in negotiations to acquire and resurrect Hemdale Communications as a vehicle for Target's higher profile film releases.
Eric Parkinson, Target Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, was formerly C.E.O. of Hemdale Home Video, Inc. and Hemdale Communications, Inc. Over the past few weeks, and on behalf of Target Development Group, Parkinson has contacted the major shareholders of Hemdale Communications, Inc. and commenced negotiations to acquire certain assets, including the license authority for the company's releasing brand.
"This is a tremendous opportunity to build on the brand legacy of Hemdale and provide a quality releasing vehicle for Target," said Parkinson. "For more than 20 years, Hemdale was the most respected releasing label for independent cinema, filling a market segment that exists again today. The major studios have been moving their release plans entirely toward mega-event releases on 3,000 or more screens. In doing so, they have virtually walked away from the billion-dollar market segment for quality, mid-level theatrical titles. We believe that Hemdale brand will provide Target with the ideal releasing entity to address this significant market," he concluded.
During the late 1980s and early 1990s, the Hemdale name was synonymous with quality, independent cinema. The company produced and distributed over 100 major feature titles including two Best Picture Oscar winners, "Platoon" and "The Last Emperor." Other notable titles from Hemdale include "Terminator," "Hoosiers," "Impromptu," "Salvador," "Hidden Agenda" and "Vampire's Kiss."
Target's plan for a revived Hemdale would include the opening of a Los Angeles-based office to oversee production and acquisition opportunities.
"We're extremely excited about this opportunity, and hope to reach an agreement with the rest of the principal Hemdale shareholders soon," Parkinson concluded.
