Mr. Cormier has Bachelor and Master degrees in Geological Engineering from École Polytechnique in Montreal.

We thank him for his contributions."

About Mundoro Mining Inc.

Mundoro Mining has rights to a 79% interest in Maoling through a Sino-Foreign co-operative joint venture with the corporate arm of the Liaoning provincial government which has rights to 21% interest. Maoling is a pre-feasibility stage gold deposit located in Liaoning Province, China and has a significant gold resource with 4.8 million gold ounces (161 million tonnes at 0.92 g/t gold) in the Measured and Indicated category and an additional 4.4 million gold ounces (158 million tonnes at 0.9 g/t gold) in the Inferred category. In 2005 a Reserve of 2.8 million ounces (88 million tonnes at 1 g/t gold) in the Probable category was the basis for the Pre-Feasibility Study. The Pre-Feasibility Study for Maoling was completed in June 2005 and demonstrated the economic viability of developing a large-scale open-pit mine for Zone 1 at Maoling. Since 2005, the renewal of the exploration license for Maoling has been deferred pending the renewal of a business license for Tianli. Despite the Company's best efforts, Tianli's business license and exploration license have not been renewed and the Maoling Gold Project remains stalled.

Investors are encouraged to review 'Risk Factors' associated with the Maoling project as outlined in the Company's prospectus documents and other regulatory filings, available on the SEDAR website at www.sedar.com.

The pre-feasibility described herein was prepared to broadly quantify the Maoling Zone 1 deposit's capital and operating cost parameters, and to further the development of the project. It was not prepared for use as a valuation of the deposits, nor should it be considered to be a final feasibility study. The information contained in the Study reflects various technical and economic conditions at the time of writing that can change significantly over relatively short periods of time. There can be no assurance that the potential results contained in the Study will be realized. The study was prepared by AMEC Americas Ltd. under the direction and oversight of Mr. Mark Pearson P.Eng. of Vancouver, BC, an 'Independent Qualified Person' as defined by National Instrument 43-101. Resource estimation for the Zone 1 area in 2006 was carried out in the Brisbane, Australia office of Golder Associates Pty Limited, an international earth sciences consulting group under the direction and oversight of Dr. Andrew Richmond, MAusIMM, an 'Independent Qualified Person' as defined by NI43-101. Resource estimation for the Zone 4 area in 2001 was carried out by Dr. Peter D. Lewis, P.Geo., (Lewis Geoscience Services Inc.), an 'Independent Qualified Person' as defined by NI43-101. NI43-101 compliant technical reports for the pre-feasibility study and all reserve and resource estimates have been filed on the SEDAR website at www.sedar.com.
