Barbrook Placed on Temporary Care & Maintenance

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 10, 2006) - Caledonia Mining Corporation ("Caledonia") (TSX:CAL)(OTCBB:CALVF)(AIM:CMCL) has placed its Barbrook Mine in South Africa on temporary care and maintenance as a result of damage caused by employees of a labour brokerage company during an illegal industrial action.

The administrative and security buildings were damaged, but the metallurgical plant and mining infrastructure and equipment are unaffected.

The Company is formulating claims for major compensation against the labour brokerage company which supplies labour to the Mine.

The Company's Board is, with input from South African management, considering its options regarding the future of the Barbrook Mine. The effect on earnings during the fourth quarter is expected to be negligible.
