PHI Group Subsidiary Acquires Producing Canadian Gold Mine

LOS ANGELES, CA and FRANKFURT, GERMANY--(Marketwire - December 2, 2010) - PHI Group, Inc. (OTCBB: PHIE) (FRANKFURT: PR7) (XETRA: PR7) announced today that its subsidiary PHI Mining Group, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: PHIG) (FRANKFURT: RPBA), a mining and exploration enterprise focused on acquiring and developing gold, silver, copper and industrial mineral properties, has acquired all the issued and outstanding stock of Maisy Mae Mining, Inc., a New Brunswick corporation with a placer mining business in the Yukon Territory, Canada on a mine known as the Maisy Mae Creek mine. The purchase was made in exchange for cash and marketable securities.

The Maisy Mae Creek gold mine is a producing mine consisting of 135 placer claims, located in the Dawson Creek Mining District, one of the richest gold bearing areas of the Yukon Territory, Canada. The claims are 2,000 feet wide x 500 feet long; however only a 400 feet wide cut up the center of 22.8 claims has been mined. There are 112.2 claims that have not been mined, with additional claims available.

Based on trench sample testing up and down the creek, the gold values run very consistent (about 0.028 ounces Au per cubic yard). A draft NI 43-101 report has shown in-ground proven and probable reserves of 672,833 ounces. The mine has already generated revenues and is currently fully outfitted with equipment and housing to resume operations at the beginning of the next mining season. There is sufficient water supply in the creek to sustain at least four 200 cubic yard per hour machines.

Maisy Mae Creek will serve as a platform for additional acquisitions in the near future. Assuming gold value of $1,200 per ounce and projected volume extracted annually at 28,512 ounces, the projected annual extracted value will be $34,214,400 and the cumulative production value for years 2011-2021 will be $225,363,390.

As of December 2, 2010, PHI Mining Group has 200 million authorized shares, of which 22,424,628 shares are issued and outstanding and 1,428,286 are free trading.

Daniel St. John, corporate strategist of PHI Group, Inc., stated: "The closing of the Maisy Mae Creek acquisition provides us with a producing platform to create substantial value for our shareholders and related stakeholders. We are also in discussions for additional acquisitions and look forward to updating our shareholders and investors with new developments in the coming weeks."
