Vancouver Jade Commences Jade Product Manufacturing

Vancouver, British Columbia - Electra Stone Ltd. (TSX Venture: ELT) (“Electra”) or (“the Company”) is pleased to announce that its Joint Venture, Vancouver Jade Mining Corp (“Vancouver Jade”) has commenced dimensional Jade manufacturing at the Company’s secured facility in Richmond, British Columbia.

Commencing in early February, Vancouver Jade will start production of approximately 32 square feet or one 4’x 8’x 3/4” Slab of semi-finished dimensional jade per day. Slabs will be cut using industry standard stone cutting equipment consisting of a wire slabbing saw, bridge saw, 3 axis CNC machine and a decorative edge trimmer/grinder. The use of this machinery will result in an approximate 80% cost savings over locally sourced manufacturing channels. This pilot scale manufacturing line with its further reduction of input costs increases Vancouver Jades capacity to competitively market finished dimensional jade products both locally and internationally.

An arrangement for the use of the equipment has been made by Vancouver Jade with a private group in exchange for services and maintenance. Vancouver Jade will also have within its capacity an ability to manufacture additional dimensional stone products through internal product channel growth and/or local orders from industry peers.

Vancouver Jade has received its total 2016 season shipment of 200,000 Kgs of Dimensional Jade in large, dimensional blocks at its new jade storage facility in Richmond, BC. Vancouver Jade now offers to the market several dimensional jade products including large dimensional blocks, polished/un-polished slabs and finished luxury furniture products made by Dean Cloutier luxury Design.
