BEIJING, July 11, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- China Shen Zhou Mining & Resources, Inc. (" China Shen Zhou" or the "Company") (NYSE AMEX: SHZ), a Company engaged in the exploration, development, mining and processing of fluorite, barite, zinc, copper, and other nonferrous metals in China, today announced it has established a regional sales center in Guiyang, the capital city of Guizhou Province. This new sales center will service the Company's three nearby subsidiaries - Wuchuan Dongsheng Mining Co., Ltd. ("Dongsheng"), Yanhe Tujiazu Autonomous County Meilan Mining Co., Ltd. ("Meilan"), and Guizhou Qianshi Resources Development Co., Ltd. ("Qianshi").
To advance resource-sharing among its subsidiaries and strengthen regional sales, China Shen Zhou recently developed this sales center in Guiyang. Dongsheng, Meilan, and Qianshi are all located in the Wuling Mountain Area of Guizhou, which is rich in both fluorite and barite resources.
Ms. Xiaojing Yu, Chairwoman and Chief Executive Officer of China Shen Zhou, commented, "Establishment of the regional sales center in Guiyang is an important initiative to help better utilize and share resources, streamline operations, and further develop business in the Guizhou region. In the past, technical difficulties in the separation of fluorite and barite ores caused a great deal of inefficiency in resource development. With our recent progress in separation and purification techniques, we expect to consolidate resources of these three subsidiaries, create better fluorite products and extend our product offerings into the higher-valued barite industry chain."
