ABOUT ALHAMBRA

Alhambra is a Canadian based international exploration and gold production corporation with operations in the Republic of Kazakhstan. Alhambra holds exploration and exploitation rights to a 2.4 million acre (9,800 km2), 100% owned license called the Uzboy Project, located in the Northern Kazakhstan Metallogenic Province which hosts numerous world-class gold deposits. Over 100 mineral targets, including three advanced exploration project areas, are contained within the Uzboy Project.

A Preliminary Economic Assessment ("PEA") was completed in late 2009 on one of Alhambra's advanced exploration project areas called the Uzboy gold deposit ("Uzboy"). A Canadian securities' compliant National Instrument ("NI") 43-101 resource estimate has been calculated for Uzboy and is in the process of being updated as is the PEA. In February 2012, maiden NI 43-101 resource estimates were issued for Alhambra's two other advanced exploration project areas called Dombraly and Shirotnaia. The total reported NI 43-101 resources for Uzboy, Dombraly and Shirotnaia amount to 700,000 ounces ("ozs") measured, 368,500 ozs indicated and 1,367,700 ozs inferred.

Alhambra is currently producing gold and has 10 years remaining of a 25 year license which is renewable for an additional 20 years and allows the Corporation to explore for all metals including gold, base metals, uranium and molybdenum.
