American International Ventures Inc. Acquires Cutting Edge Coal Conversion Technology Patent
AIVN will utilize this Process for Depolymerizing Coal to produce Synthetic Crude Oil, Bunker Fuel, Pitch and "light end" Naphthalene classed derivatives. The overall process can yield up to four (4) barrels Synthetic Crude Oil per ton using (LRC) as a feedstock.
Robert G Polce CEO of American International Ventures Inc. said, "The acquisition of this technology opens up markets and coal reserves that were until now stranded assets for many countries and companies due to the high cost of development."
The scientist that developed the technology and applied for the original patent is Dr. John Ousey Jr. He will work directly with our Chief Technology Officer, Mr. Paul "Mike" Muncy, in review and due diligence regarding technologies which augment the core development of clean coal technologies. AIVN continues to develop projects in the Pacific Rim and more particularly in Indonesia where GeoEnergy, its wholly owned subsidiary, controls mineral interests. John R. Ousey Jr. graduated from LaSalle College (now University), Philadelphia, PA in 1964 with a B.A. in Biology, and a minor in Education. Over the next several years he acquired graduate degrees from Penn State, University Park, PA (M.Ed. in Earth Science, 1968; D.Ed. in Earth Science, 1980) and Drexel University, Philadelphia, PA, (M.S. in Environmental Science, 1977). Dr. Ousey spent most of his career as an educator teaching at the Brandywine Campus (formerly Delaware County Campus) of Penn State University. He taught introductory level and non-major courses in Geology, Physical Geography and Meteorology plus a few STS (science, technology and society) courses. Among the latter courses was one called Energy and Fuels in Society, which helped trigger a long-term interest in the field of energy resources and related technology. For over twenty years, while on the faculty of Penn State, he also engaged in technical consulting in the field of hydrogeology with a local engineering firm. Following his retirement in 2001, he continued to follow the scientific literature in the fields he was interested in and early in 2004 he came up with the idea that ultimately became U.S. Patent No. 7,608,170.
American International Ventures Inc. (AIVN) is a gold and silver mining company with a focus on acquiring mines in operator friendly regions of the United States and Mexico. AIVN flagship mining property "The Mother Lode" in Baja California, Mexico is an enormous mining district, with a rich history starting at the turn of the 20th century when over 200,000 ounces of gold was mined in only 10 years. Only 10% of the property has been tested for gold; the areas that have, return consistently high-grade results.
AIVN wholly owned subsidiary: GEOENERGY is a diversified mining and mineral asset management company that is involved in energy, natural resource and fuel related industries. GEOENERGY (along with its partners and affiliates) control over 1.5 billion tons of Coal and other mineral assets in worldwide (including Indonesia) GEOENERGY has worked to develop technologies which support recent government mandates to create jobs and value-added products that is mandated under new regulations set forth by the Indonesian government to increase the value of raw minerals through processing on shore, for domestic use and export. Our Coal to Liquids business model provides total compliance with these mandates. This technology requires high moisture coal as a feedstock and eliminates expensive Coal Drying Techniques currently utilized.
