Orbite Comments on Recent Trading and Share Price13:02 EST Thursday, February 14, 2013MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Feb. 14, 2013) - Orbite Aluminae Inc. (TSX:ORT)(OTCQX:EORBF) ("Orbite" or the "Company") wishes to confirm that following unusual trading that occurred following the market open and its impact on the Company's share price, the Company is not aware at this time of any reason which justifies this share price movement.About Orbite Orbite Aluminae Inc. is a Canadian cleantech company whose innovative technologies are setting the new standard for alumina production. Orbite technologies enable the low-cost and environmentally-neutral extraction of smelter-grade alumina (SGA), high-purity alumina (HPA) and high-value elements, including rare earths and rare metals, from a variety of sources such as aluminous clay and bauxite, without producing any wastes such as the caustic red mud residue generated from the industry standard Bayer process. The Company owns 100% of fourteen different families of intellectual property rights (and patents pending) filed across the world for the extraction of alumina at the highest standards of sustainability. Orbite also owns exclusive mining rights over a total of 585 km2 including the 33.4 km2 Grande-Vallée property, the site of a homogeneous aluminous clay deposit in Quebec, Canada containing an NI 43-101 compliant Indicated Mineral Resource of 1.04 billion tonnes (see Reviewed Preliminary Economic Assessment, dated May 30, 2012 and ORT May 31, 2012 press release for a detailed breakdown of the resource). Orbite holds a mining lease on a portion of the deposit. Orbite is currently commissioning its 2,600 m2 high-purity alumina (HPA) plant in Cap-Chat, Quebec, Canada, which will become fully operational in the first quarter of 2013. Orbite plans to license its technologies to well-qualified alumina producers who want to reduce their environmental footprint. Orbite has signed memorandums of understanding with the world's largest aluminum producer, UC RUSAL, and with a major Asian aluminum company. A series of white papers on the application of its technology for the production of alumina, remediation of red mud, and extraction of rare metals are available on our website: www.orbitealuminae.com/en/technology/white-paper.
