World  Mining  Services Limited ("WMS" or "the Company"), the Isle of Man based resource sector technology  and
service's  company  is  pleased to announce that the Company has increased its stake in  Afri-Pal,  the  Polish
Briquetting  subsidiary,  by  28%  from 50% to 78%, making WMS the controlling  shareholder  of  Afri-Pal.  The
increase is a result of a transfer of shares from existing shareholders of Afri-Pal for a nominal cash  sum  in
response to WMS's increased loan capacity and management's time allocation.

Chairman  and CEO, Jeff Michel commented, "The increase in our holdings of Afri- Pal is a result of WMS's  deep
commitment  both from a fiscal and management perspective. We have worked diligently to forward the efforts  of
Afri-Pal and look forward to prosperous future."


                   The Directors of the Company accept responsibility for this announcement.
