Moly Mines Advises Utah Point Access Extended to 2015

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 4, 2011) - Moly Mines Limited (TSX:MOL)(ASX:MOL) is pleased to announce it has secured access to the Utah Point multi user export facility at Port Hedland through to September 2015.

The agreement with the Port Hedland Port Authority (PHPA) confirms port access for the delivery of the existing Spinifex Ridge iron ore reserve through to September 2015. Importantly, it underwrites significant future iron ore cashflows that are assisting the Company's financing for the Spinifex Ridge Molybdenum / Copper Project.

Moly Mines has been very pleased with the commissioning of Utah Point and congratulates PHPA and the facility stevedores, POAGS Bulk Logistics, for their efforts.

Scoping studies are underway to determine an optimal expanded iron ore mining and production rate. Longer term access to port was a critical first step in these studies. The Company has commenced assessing the levels of approvals required to support the possible infrastructure network required for an expanded production base.
