Liberty Mines Wins Environmental Award

EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Dec. 1, 2008) - Liberty Mines Inc. ("Liberty or the Corporation") (TSX:LBE) is pleased to announce that it has won the "PROOF NOT PROMISES AWARD" from General Electric Water and Process Technologies. There were only eleven companies worldwide who received this award during the calendar cycle. The award is granted after a three-tier selection process that examines set-goals and the operational and financial benefits.

General Electric Representatives work with customers to design and meet strategic business goals that result in proof, not promises. Liberty Mines and General Electric worked together for a number of months to develop the most efficient way to treat mine effluent water from their two operating mine sites (Redstone and McWatters). The subsequent results achieved a seventy-five percent reduction in operating costs and a significant improvement in the water quality discharging into the environment.

Liberty Mines Environmental Manager (Gerry Stinson) commented: "Our partnership with the local and technical branches of General Electric Water and Process Technologies has allowed us to explore new and innovative ways to treat mine effluent water. We are very pleased with the announcement of this award and openly share it with General Electric, including their local team of experts."
