The Company's principal advanced projects are the Dutwa nickel laterite discovery in Tanzania, where the Company completed a scoping study in June 2009, and the Mkushi Copper Mines project in Zambia, for which a draft Feasibility Study was completed in Q4 2008. African Eagle has also defined a gold resource estimated at half a million ounces at the Miyabi gold project in Tanzania, and is evaluating a second promising nickel laterite deposit which it recently discovered in Tanzania. The Company holds a well-balanced portfolio of promising earlier stage gold and base metal projects, including the Ndola and Mokambo projects in the Zambian Copperbelt. Zambia, Tanzania and Mozambique, the sites of African Eagle's projects, are all countries which have highly prospective geology, relatively low above-ground risks and track records of successful major investments in the metals and minerals industries. African Eagle specialises in project generation and exploration. To take its discoveries into production, it seeks to sign up industry partners with records of successful mine development. These joint ventures and, in time, the revenue from advanced projects, will finance future exploration and new discoveries. ---END OF MESSAGE--- This announcement was originally distributed by Hugin.
