All resources are reported according to the JORC Code 2004 and based on a cut-off of 30%. London Mining has also identified an exploration target of between 80 to 120Mt ranging in grade from 38% to 42% Fe, which it is hoped will extend mine life beyond 20 years, at an annual production rate of approximately 12Mtpa of feed to the process plant. Wadi Sawawin is located 60km from the Red Sea port of Duba in Saudi Arabia and is held through Saudi London Iron Limited, the Saudi joint venture company held 50:50 by London Mining and National Mining Company. Metallurgical testwork undertaken by British Steel over a 20 year period has identified a process route that has been confirmed by Ausenco, Worley Parsons and Corus Consulting. The process involves fine grinding followed by selective flocculation and calcium activated reverse anionic flotation, to produce a high grade concentrate suitable for pelletising as a direct reduction furnace feed. In addition, 8000m of drilling is planned before the end of 2010 to increase confidence in the existing resources and to bring the identified exploration target into the project's resource base. Michael Andrew, Divisional Manager Applied Geosciences of Snowden Mining Industry Consultants BSc, MAUSIMM, who meets the criteria of a qualified person under the AIM Rules - Guidance for Mining, Oil and Gas Companies, has reviewed and approved the technical information contained within this announcement. Graeme Hossie, CEO of London Mining plc, said, "Reporting to JORC standards of the iron ore resources in the initial proposed mining area is a further step towards confirming the significant economic potential of Wadi Sawawin which is ideally located to take advantage of the forecast demand for pellets in the Middle East and North Africa ("MENA") region as well as the seaborne markets. One of the leading industry consultants, CRU Strategies, has estimated that this demand in the MENA region will reach 43Mt in 2013 and 62Mt in 2019. Saudi London Iron will be ideally located to supply this market with an initial target production of 5Mtpa of DR pellets which may be increased as additional resources are proved. We look forward to reporting further resource upside on the project as well as the results of the Bankable Feasibility Study for the first phase of the project."
