China Steel Resources Investments Ltd. enters into agreement with Melville Capital Corporation

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 27, 2008) - Timothy German, President of Melville Capital Corporation ("MCC") has advised that MCC has entered into a term sheet for the financing and support of the MCC agreement with AEI for the financing of the Roche Bay Project by China Steel Resources Investments Ltd. ("CSRI"). The signed term sheet indicates a comprehensive working relationship with AEI, MCC, and various local and territorial aboriginal organizations.

The pulling together of these many different elements into a strong working partnership has required considerable consultation and approval from many participants. This consultative process requires time for all parties to provide full input and will be ongoing for the foreseeable future. Despite the considerable efforts to meet the MCC investment timelines, CSRI and MCC require additional time to complete the administrative and regulatory processing requirements including the release of funds will require an extension of the closing date to July 4th, 2008 which has been granted by the Company.

MCC is working with the Baron Group through their offices in Beijing, Hong Kong and Toronto to facilitate the process and would like to acknowledge their support in enabling the process to continue in an efficient and timely manner.

John Gingerich, President & C.E.O. stated: "We are pleased to provide the opportunity to allow a company of the caliber of China Steel Resources Investments Ltd. to conclude its business with MCC. This represents a potential significant addition to our efforts."
