Moto Goldmines Announces Significant Increase In Gold Resource Estimate

BALCATTA, WESTERN AUSTRALIA--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 14, 2005) - Moto Goldmines Limited (TSX:MGL)(ASX:MOE) is pleased to report that an updated independent resource estimate, completed by Cube Consulting Pty Ltd, has resulted in a significant increase in resources on the Company's Moto gold project in the north east of the Democratic Republic of Congo. Estimated resources at the Moto gold project are now:

- Indicated resources - 34.33 million tonnes at 2.5 g/t Au for 2.809 million ounces of gold; and

- Inferred resources - 92.87 million tonnes at 2.7 g/t Au for 8.158 million ounces of gold.

Highlights of the resource estimate include:

- Significant increase of 300% in indicated resources to 34.33 million tonnes at 2.5 g/t Au for 2.809 million ounces of gold.

- Significant conversion (greater than 95%) of resources from inferred to indicated category at Pakaka and Mengu Hill reflecting the excellent continuity of mineralized zones.

A further resource upgrade is planned for January 2006 based upon analysis of recent infill drilling results from Gorumbwa and Karagba. These programmes were designed to upgrade the existing resources from inferred to the indicated category.
