Trevor Richardson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Mukuba stated, "We are very pleased to announce the closing of the private placement and are looking forward to the 2009 exploration season.

About the Company

The business of the Company consists of the exploration and development of two early-stage exploration projects (the Northcore Project and the Lunga Project) in the highly prospective Central African Copperbelt region of Central Zambia:

- The Northcore Project area encompasses approximately 4,562 km2 of geologically prospective ground in the Domes Region of the eastern limb of the Zambian Copperbelt. The Northcore Project is licensed for copper and cobalt. Geological mapping, soil sampling and investigation of the historical showings as well as ground-truthing of the geophysical survey results have confirmed the historical geological anomalies. The planned 2009 exploration program includes drilling several of these anomalies.

- The Lunga Project area adjoins the south-west margin of the Northcore Project area, and is licensed for copper, cobalt, and other base metals. The property encompasses 480 km2 s and contains numerous geochemically delineated copper and zinc anomalies that cover over 10 kilometres of strike, extending into the Northcore Project area. The Company can earn an 80% interest in the Lunga Project area through a farm-in agreement by completing a preliminary feasibility study.

The Central African Copperbelt is the world's largest and highest-grade sediment hosted stratiform copper province and includes both the Zambian Copperbelt and the Congolese Copperbelt which is located immediately to the north in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Over 95% of the known Zambian copper reserves occur in rocks of the Lower Roan Group, or in the adjacent basement complex. The Northcore Project area contains roughly 1,300 km2 of the Lower Roan Group.
