Nordex Explosives Nears Completion of Full Production Plant to Manufacture "ButtBuster" Perimeter Control Product for Distribution in North America

12:09 EDT Thursday, September 26, 2013

KIRKLAND LAKE, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Sept. 26, 2013) - Nordex Explosives Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:NXX) has constructed a new production facility, which has full manufacturing capabilities for its "ButtBuster" Perimeter Control products. Subject to final approvals and commissioning full production is expected to start within 30 days.

With the ability to manufacture over 120 cases per shift Nordex Explosives is ready to meet the high demand of this product in underground and surface blasting situations.

"The ButtBuster product is well-known in the mining and construction industries, and has been difficult to obtain in North America until now," says Jim Taylor, CEO of Nordex Explosives Ltd. "We are pleased to make this announcement after over 5 years of development. The demand for this particular product, because of its high quality and known safety benefits is huge; we were reluctant to begin full distribution before now because we would not have been able to keep up to expected demands without the proper production facilities in place."

With the exclusive rights to the manufacturing and distribution of the ButtBuster product, Nordex Explosives Ltd. is the only company with the ability to supply the construction and mining industries with one of the best and most efficient perimeter control products on the world market.

Originally developed by Johnex Explosives of Australia, the ButtBuster product is highly sought after for its ease of use, cost effectiveness, improvement in ground control safety and associated reductions in potential hazardous "rockfall" situations.

Its manufacturing operations and distribution centre is strategically located in one of the world's largest mining regions near Kirkland Lake, Ontario.
