NiCo Mining Limited Initiates Strategic Review

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 15, 2008) -


NiCo Mining Limited (TSX VENTURE:NCL) announces that as a result of the depressed commodities and equity markets, and the outlook for nickel and cobalt in particular, the Board of Directors has determined to wind down its current exploration activities on its Lomie nickel and cobalt properties in the Cameroon and refocus its efforts investigating other opportunities in the region and elsewhere which may be available to the Corporation in order to maximize shareholders' value.

The Chairman and Chief Executive Officer has been instructed to review strategic options available to the Corporation and to report back to the Board at its next meeting on a plan to substantially reduce corporate expenditures. This strategic review and cost reductions are being initiated with some reductions being implemented with immediate effect in light of market conditions.

The Corporation also announces the resignation of Mr. Laurie Mutch as President of the Corporation. He will remain as a Director. This is the first step in the Corporation's reorganization.

The Corporation is debt free, has 20,898,100 shares issued and outstanding and is well financed with approximately CAD$9.6 million in working capital.
