TONOPAH, Nev., Jan. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Standard Metals Processing, Inc., (OTCQB:SMPR) today announced that through its subsidiary company, Tonopah Custom Processing, Inc. (the "Company"), a Memorandum of Understanding to process source material for Adriat Management Group, a private owner and operator with mining interests in the Caribbean, Central America and South America (the "Agreement") has been executed. According to the terms of the Agreement, the Company will take delivery of high grade gold concentrate and source material that will be processed into refined gold and/or dore bars. The Company expects to process its first delivery of concentrate shortly after obtaining the requisite permits and completion of its processing facility.

Under the terms of the Agreement, Standard Metals Acquisitions, Inc. will receive the exclusive processing rights within the U.S. for 10 years, with an optional 10-year extension.
