About Brilliant Mining

In late February 2009, Brilliant announced the sale of its fully owned subsidiary Donegal Resources Pty Ltd. ("Donegal"), which indirectly holds Brilliant's 25% interest in the nickel producing Lanfranchi Mine, to Australian-based Panoramic Resources Ltd. (See press release dated February 26, 2009.) A special shareholders' meeting will be held to vote on this transaction on Tuesday, May 19, 2009, at 11:00 am (MDT). In addition, shareholders will be asked to vote on a special resolution to affect a court-approved plan of arrangement to distribute 12,000,000 ordinary shares of Panoramic (the "Panoramic Shares"), to be received by Brilliant as partial consideration for the sale of Donegal, on a pro-rata basis to the shareholders of Brilliant, and to affect a 2-to-1 share consolidation of Brilliant's common shares. Provided the necessary shareholder approvals are obtained, the effective date for beneficial distribution of the Panoramic Shares to the shareholders of Brilliant, and the share consolidation, will be the date of filing the articles of arrangement with the Registrar of Corporations for Alberta which is expected to occur on or about May 27, 2009. The Panoramic Shares will be subject to escrow conditions for a period of six months subsequent to the closing of the sale of Donegal during which time the Panoramic Shares will be held in trust by Brilliant.
