Sanwire Announces The Appointment of Two Seasoned Coal Mining Professionals to Its Advisory Board

Sanwire Corporation (“Sanwire” or the “Company”) (NTMG), a global provider of wireless communications services and data solutions, is pleased to announce its wholly owned subsidiary, iPTerra Technologies Inc. (“iPTerra”), sanwire has established an Advisory Board and the appointment of two seasoned coal mining professionals, Mr. George Naylor and Mr. John Sisk. The newly appointed Advisory Board members will help position iPTerra’s underground mine communication and mine safety solutions in the coal mining market in the United States.

With over 30 years of experience in the coal industry, Mr. George Naylor has been involved in a number of areas including coal property and reserve acquisitions, consulting, core drilling, asset evaluation, and coal seam quality control.

A licensed mining Engineer in Kentucky, and licensed Engineer in Alabama and Indiana, Mr. John Sisk has been in the coal industry for over 40 years in a number of entrepreneurship positions including technical and management. His accomplishments include Who’s Who in Finance and Industry, Who’s Who in America, and Member of the Kentucky Department for Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement’s Task Force Committee to promulgate Kentucky mining Regulations. Mr. Sisk is a graduate of University of Kentucky, College of Engineering, major in civil engineering with a mining option.

Mr. Naylor stated, “There is a very real need for Sanwire’s technology in today’s coal mine. After spending much time in coal mines and witnessing their existing technologies, iPTerra’s technology is not only welcomed but very much needed in the communities.”

Mr. Sisk added, “Many of today’s active underground coal mines have older technologies and sub-standard protocols as this was their temporary solution in order to stay compliant with government mandates. iPTerra’s technology is definitely a breath of relief for these mining operations as they are in need of more reliable equipment and support for a safer work environment.”

“We welcome George and John to our Advisory Board,” said Naiel Kanno, President and CEO of Sanwire. “With their coal mining background and experience, George and John will position iPTerra in a leadership role in the mine communication solutions, and will expedite iPTerra’s revenue growth strategy in the United States.”
