Magma Metals Target's Statement Released

Directors advise shareholders to REJECT the Panoramic Offer

PERTH, WESTERN AUSTRALIA--(Marketwire - March 9, 2012) - Magma Metals Limited (TSX:MMW)(ASX:MMW) ("Magma" or the "Company") today released its Target's Statement in response to the unsolicited takeover offer by Panoramic Resources Limited ("Panoramic").

Panoramic is offering 2 new shares for every 17 Magma shares held. This equates to approximately A$0.142 per Magma share, based on the closing price of Panoramic shares on the ASX on 8 March 2012 of A$1.205.

The Directors unanimously recommend that Magma shareholders REJECT the Panoramic offer. As previously advised, the independent expert has concluded that the offer is NOT FAIR and NOT REASONABLE and well below its preferred value of A$0.37 per Magma share.

The Target's Statement contains detailed reasons for the Directors' recommendation and other material information in relation to the offer.

A full copy of the Target's Statement is available with the Company's documents at SEDAR (www.sedar.com) as well as on Magma's website (www.magmametals.com.au).
