BAY CITY, MI -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 20, 2005 -- Simba Mines Inc. (OTC: SBAM), advises that it has received the results of the "Soyuzkarta" topographic mapping contract which has been undertaken during the past three months.

The new map, at a scale of 1:25000 in digital and paper format will be used to upgrade the digital modeling of the Cachoeiras de Binga deposit, locate the geochemical and geophysical surveys planned for the next two months, and permit accurate location of the infill and exploration drilling program.

About Simba

Simba holds through its subsidiaries, an 80% interest in the Cachoeiras de Binga licence covering 3615 sq. km in Angola, through its wholly owned subsidiary Sociedade Mineira Simba Jamba LDA. Work to date has established a measured and inferred resource of 58.1 million tonnes at 2.14% copper which is a contained copper resource of 1.3+ million tonnes. The sharing split is Simba 80% and Angolan nationals 20%.

Mining of the resources will be undertaken through conventional heap leaching plus solvent extraction electro mining SXEW to produce LME grade copper cathode.

Initial plant production capacity is planned to be 20,000 tonnes per annum (approximately 44 million lbs) with capital costs estimated at US $35 million. Following upgrading confirmation of the geological resource, it is anticipated that the plant capacity will be increased in Year 3 to 40,000 - 50,000 tonnes per annum (approximately 88 - 110 million lbs of copper). The mine is located near the coast with much infrastructure already in place.
