The  Company  announces that, following the exercise of warrants at 11.25 pence per share to subscribe for  ordinary
shares  on  17 November by Graham Heard, Exploration and Technical Director, it has made an application pursuant  to
the authority granted on 22 July 2009 for the admission of 40,000 ordinary shares of 5 pence each to trading on AIM.

number of ordinary shares in issue will be 78,987,248.

It is expected that dealings in the said shares will commence on 25 November 2009.

Mr Heard has today transferred these 40,000 ordinary shares to his SIPP at a price of 148p per share. Following this
warrant  exercise and transfer, Mr Heard's total beneficial shareholding has increased by 40,000 to 428,408 ordinary
shares,  which  represents  0.54 per cent of the issued share capital of the Company. Today's  transactions  do  not
