NEW YORK, April 06, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PHI Group (OTC Markets:PHIL), a U.S. public company focused on conventional energy and renewables, announced today that it has formed “American Pacific Resources, Inc.,” a Wyoming corporation, as its wholly owned subsidiary to manage the Company’s non-energy businesses, particularly its existing projects and transactions in the area of natural resources.

PHI Group will negotiate with its partner companies to assign and transfer current contracts and agreements related to mining, minerals and natural resources together with the rights and obligations thereof to American Pacific Resources.

These existing business opportunities include reclamation and construction sand projects in Zambales Province, the Philippines with Spartan Mining and Development Co. and in Vietnam with several Vietnamese companies, a nickel project in Bulikhamsay Province, Laos with Cavico Lao Mining Ltd., an antimony project in Khammuane Province, Laos with Khamchaleun Investment Sole Co., a titanium refinery project in Binh Thuan Province, Vietnam with HTMI, an oleochemical plant in Malaysia with Fusion Crest Sdn Bhd, and others.
