                                                 (PLUS: WMSP)
                                                 FINAL RESULTS


This  past  year  has been a formative one for World Mining Services Limited ("WMS").  Our  business  plan  was
placed into action whereby we were able to complete two acquisitions, a capital raise and successfully list the
company on the PLUS Market in London.

Since  listing,  WMS  has focused primarily on completing the build-out of our associated company  Afri-Pal  sp
z.o.o.  (Afri- Pal) factory in Trzebenia, Poland.  The plant, 6,000 square meters under roof, is now  completed
and  in  operation.  In January of 2009 Afri-Pal signed two procurement agreements with major mining companies.
This  provides  a stable base from which to build our revenues upon and shows evidence of the confidence  these
two  major  suppliers  have  in  our Company.  Afri- Pal now has the ability to  produce  a  diverse  range  of
briquetted coal products as well provide industrial screening and crushing services, all of which are in demand
throughout  Poland.   The  briquettes not only serve to fill a gap in supply but have been  proven  to  produce
cleaner emissions and less waste whilst emitting energy in a more efficient (useful) manner.

Having  completed the acquisition of True North Drilling & Geological Services, the subsidiary is  prepared  to
start  work  for  our sister company Fundy Minerals Limited.  Fundy Minerals Limited will require  drilling  on
several of its properties once logistics and weather permit.

WMS  remains a passive investor in Minex Technologies Limited.  We have been informed in January 2009 that  the
Company  has  made  a  substantial change in their Process and they feel this change  has  reduced  operational
problems  and  provided  for  a  more economical operation.  Minex Technologies reports  that  they  have  been
introduced  to  three  different  organizations, which between them have  over  forty  two  million  tonnes  of
metallurgical waste for re-processing.  Minex Technologies Limited has already tested samples from two  of  the
three  with  successful  commercially viable results.  Testing is on-going  with  a  Competent  Persons  Report
authored by SRK expected in April 2009.

The  results  for  the financial year ending 30 September 2008 were pleasing as we were able to  show  a  small
profit  with  significant one-off costs from the listing process on PLUS and the build out  of  the  Afri-  Pal
plant.  We did record a profit on the sale of some of the shares held in Minex Technologies Limited.

This  year  we  expect a return on capital loaned to Afri- Pal as well as significant contributions  from  this
subsidiary.   Demand  for our product and services in Poland are strong without any change  predicted  for  the
foreseeable future.

We  would  expect that, despite the slowing effects the economy is having on the resources sector,  True  North
Drilling  &  Geological Services will find an active year if for no other reason but serve the needs  of  Fundy
Minerals Limited.

The  Board  of  Directors of WMS have remained focused on prudent growth, are mindful of  the  global  economic
conditions and the impact this has had on our sector as well the broader capital markets. Whilst demand in some
of  these  areas will wane, it certainly will create new opportunities for improved (or green) technologies  to
make inroads.  WMS is keeping a keen eye on these opportunities and will look to participate in these when  the
proper conditions present themselves.

Earnings per share

      Given the result for both years the share warrants are anti-dilutive and have therefore not been taken
      into consideration for the purposes of calculating earnings per share.
      The calculation of the basic and diluted earnings per share is based on the following data:
                                                                                  2008        As restated
