About Hana Mining's Ghanzi Copper-Silver Project in Botswana

The Ghanzi Project is located in the center of the Kalahari copper belt in northwestern Botswana. The Ghanzi property covers 2,200 sq. km., and contains sediment-hosted copper-silver deposits with a demonstrated cumulative mineralized strike length of over 20.7 kilometres. This favourable geology extends over the entire strike length of 600 kilometres Hana Mining recently released results of it's first NI 43-101 resource estimate for the Ghanzi Project (see press release dated June 1, 2009), announcing an inferred resource of 2.0 billion lb of copper and 34.9 million oz of silver from 60.4 million tonnes. This resource estimate is based on a 0.75% Cu cutoff grade, and averages 1.51% Cu and 17.98 g/t Ag. The Banana Zone represents 40.7 million tonnes of this total resource (67%), and is the current focus of the Company's drilling efforts and development focus for 2009 and 2010.

Hana Mining is focused on demonstrating that the Ghanzi property represents one of Africa's premier future copper-silver resources.
