Moly Mines Awards Crusher Contract to Metso

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 22, 2008) -


Moly Mines Limited, (TSX:MOL)(ASX:MOL) is pleased to announce it has awarded the contract for the design, fabrication and delivery of the Secondary Crushers for the Spinifex Ridge Project to Metso Minerals (Australia) Limited.

The award of the secondary crusher contract completes the ordering for the major items of plant within the comminution circuit for the planned 20 million tonne per annum molybdenum / copper processing plant for the planned Spinifex Ridge mine.

The A$13.6 million order brings the total value of capital commitments for the Project to approximately A$160 million and follows the recent award of a 7 year A$1.1 billion mining contract to the Australian based mining and civil construction company Macmahon Holdings Limited.

Metso Minerals are a leading Finnish based global supplier of equipment to the mining industry with particular experience in processing equipment.

Site activities continue at Spinifex Ridge with exploration drilling around the periphery of the 469 million tonne Measured and Indicated Resource continuing. The drilling programs were designed to better define the outer limits of the mineralization and to enable lower grade material, currently classified as waste in the definitive feasibility study mine plan, to be better quantified. Results of the drilling programs are awaited.

Expansion work has recently commenced on the existing site accommodation to ensure infrastructure is in place to support early earthworks development following the granting of site construction approvals.

Engineering activities continue to progress with both the MOL owners team and WorleyParsons teams expanding to reflect the work schedules. Currently approximately 150 personnel are engaged in detail engineering design work in the Company's offices.
