About Belmore

Belmore is a minerals exploration company with a focus on projects in the Republic of Ireland.  Whilst
prospects for any mineral will be considered, priority will be given to the Company's zinc exploration
properties in County Clare.

Clare  Blocks  (Republic  of  Ireland): Belmore now has a 100% interest  in  11  prospecting  licences
covering 392.75 sq kilometres.

As   announced  by the Company in April 2008 diamond drilling on Prospecting Licence 3679,  in   which
Belmore   holds  a 100% interest, near Quin in County Clare, intersected newly discovered   zinc   and
lead   mineralization.  The drillhole intersected 18 metres of massive sulphide at  the  base  of  the
Waulsortian Reef.  The top part of that massive sulphide consists of virtually barren pyrite  but  the
bottom part contains high-grade zinc and lead sulphides as well as pyrite and arsenopyrite.

The  interval  from 448.1 to 458.1 metres gave the following composite result:  10  metres  at  13.84%
Zinc, 5.52% Lead and 62.84 gm/tonne Silver.

The mineralisation is open in all directions and further diamond drilling is required to determine the
extent of the mineralisation.

As  announced  on  the 26th February 2009, Belmore has entered into an agreement  with  Lundin  Mining
Exploration  Ltd, in respect of Prospecting Licences that the Company currently holds  in  Co.  Clare.
Lundin  has  a  right to earn up to a 70% interest in the Prospecting Licences that Belmore  currently
holds  in  Co. Clare by spending up to €14.7 million over a number of years.  Lundin's agreed  initial
expenditure  will be €700,000 by June 2009 allowing for an active drilling and associated  exploration
programme over the coming months.

Previous  exploration  identified  a  high-grade resource of zinc  and  lead  rich  massive  sulphides
(approximately 400,000 tonnes @ 12% zinc plus lead and 75g/t silver) in the area of Milltown.

Donegal  Blocks (Republic of Ireland): Belmore has 100% interest in two prospecting licences  covering
80.76 sq kilometres.
