(1) Copper capped at 5%, gold capped at 10 g/t for all calculations.
(2) Copper and gold equivalent calculations use metal prices of
US$1.00/lb for copper and US$400/oz for gold.
Adjustment factors to account for differences in relative
metallurgical recoveries for gold and copper will depend upon
the completion of definitive metallurgical testing.
CuEQ equals Cu % + (Au g/t x 12.86/22.046)
AuEQ equals (Cu % x 22.046/12.86) + Au g/t


High-grade copper and gold mineralization was intersected over long intervals in all of the 62 holes drilled at the Xietongmen deposit during the 2005 program. The mineralized intercepts average about 210 metres in length, and show strong continuity to the mineralization within the deposit. The area tested by vertical drill holes now measures approximately 800 metres northwest-southeast by 350 metres northeast-southwest. This substantial copper-gold deposit discovery remains open to expansion.

A table of assay results for all drill holes completed at the Xietongmen deposit during 2005 is attached. A Property Location Map, a Drill Hole Plan and Cross Sections are posted on the websites: www.continentalminerals.com & www.greatchinamining.com.

In response to the positive results, a substantial program is planned for 2006. Plans, budgets and schedules are now being worked up for comprehensive programs and studies, including significant drilling, resource estimates, metallurgical testing and mine planning, and baseline environmental and socioeconomic studies. The goal is to collect the engineering, environmental and socioeconomic data necessary to complete a feasibility study for the project in 2007.

In conjunction with these activities, the community engagement program will be expanded with the long term objective to ensure that the project provides direct, tangible benefits for local residents and communities. Hence, active dialogue with the local residents in the Tibetan villages and the various authorities in the region will be ongoing in order that the project proceeds in a manner that respects local socio-economic priorities and incorporates a high standard of environmental management.

The Xietongmen project is well located for development. Available infrastructure is excellent, including a paved highway and electric transmission lines that pass near the southern end of the property. The highway provides direct access to the city of Rikaze (population 100,000), approximately 53 kilometres to the east, where fuel, food, lodging and office facilities are available. Other supplies, heavy equipment, equipment operators and vehicles are readily obtainable in Lhasa, a drive of less than four hours from Rikaze. A new railway has recently been completed to Lhasa which connects to multiple copper smelters and other industrial centres located throughout China. Construction of a railway extension from Lhasa to Rikaze (and possibly right past the property) has just been announced.

Mark Rebagliati, P.Eng., a Qualified Person as defined under National Instrument 43-101, is supervising the drilling program and quality assurance and quality control ("QAQC") programs on behalf of Continental Minerals Corporation. The program includes rigorous QAQC procedures. Acme Analytical Laboratories of Vancouver, BC, an ISO 9001:2000 accredited laboratory, performs the sample preparation and assaying for the project. Gold analysis is by 30 g Fire Assay fusion with an Inductively Coupled Plasma-Emission Spectroscopy (ICP-ES) finish. Copper assays are done by four acid digestion with an ICP-ES finish. Continental includes standards, blanks and duplicates in addition to the laboratory's internal quality control work.

(1) Copper capped at 5%, gold capped at 10 g/tonne for all
calculations completion of definitive metallurgical testing.
(2) Copper and gold equivalent calculations use metal prices of
US$1.00/lb for copper and US$400/oz for gold.
Adjustment factors to account for differences in relative
metallurgical recoveries for gold and copper will depend upon
the completion of definitive metallurgical testing.
CuEQ equals Cu % + (Au g/t x 12.86/22.046)
AuEQ equals (Cu % x 22.046/12.86) + Au g/t
