                       EMED Mining Public Limited
                    ("EMED Mining" or the "Company")

                    Receipt of the Dictamen Ambiental
                    for the Rio Tinto Copper Project



EMED Mining, the Europe-based minerals development and exploration
company, is pleased to report progress at its Rio Tinto Copper Project
in Spain ("the Project").

The Ministry of Environment of the Government of Andalusia issued the
Dictamen Ambiental on 19 February. The release of the Dictamen is a
significant milestone in the completion of the approval process for the
Unified Environmental Plan ('Autorizacion Ambiental Unificada' or
the'AAU'). The Dictamen Ambiental contains the draft conditions which are
to be included in the final AAU.

The Company Permitting Team and Consulting Experts will analyse the
Dictamen conditions to identify those, if any, which may need to be
discussed with the Environmental Department during the ten day
interested party viewing period.


Rod Halliday, Interim Managing Director and CEO of EMED Mining,
commented:

The issue of the Dictamen Ambiental is a very significant step in the
Project approval process. The Company continues to work closely with
the Government of Andalucia in the lead-up to the approval of the AAU
and the transfer of Mineral Rights (AS).
