Brossard (Quebec), March 5th, 2015 Nippon Dragon Resources Inc. (the “Corporation” or “Nippon”) (TSX-V Symbol: NIP), is pleased to provide an update on the surface demonstrations that took place in Japan on February 26th and 27th. In conjunction with Nippon’s exclusive distributor for Japan, NDR Japan Co. Ltd (“NDR-J”) a total of 3 surface demonstrations were conducted to showcase Nippon’s exclusive and patented thermal fragmentation technology. In total, more than 50 industry participants attended the events. Attendees included representatives from the industrial, mining and construction sectors. Also present were representatives from the Japanese government responsible for major infrastructure projects in the country. The participants were able to witness first-hand the versatility of the thermal unit in performing tasks such as: precious metal vein extraction, pile anchoring and tunnel sinking
“The unit performed superbly and despite the language barrier it was quite evident that all were extremely impressed not only by their facial expressions and body language but also by the extensive Q & A sessions that followed each demonstration” stated Donald Brisebois, Nippon’s Vice-President of Operations and Technology
