VANCOUVER, BC -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 23, 2005 -- Tranzcom China Security Networks Inc.

Ltd (BTT) has been awarded a trial contract to install a Digital Coal Mine Safety Monitoring System in Jincheng City, Shanxi Province. Similar to the project in Linfen City, Jincheng is a major coal producing city in the province which has in excess of 500 coal mines.

Pursuant to the terms of the trial contract in Jincheng, BTT installed 10 explosion proof underground cameras and 14 above ground cameras linked and controlled at a central monitoring centre. BTT's proprietary system is comprised of gas level detection, location sensing, live video surveillance and Digital Video Recording for all operating areas. The BTT solution included the complete system design, procurement, installation and testing. The value of the trial system contract was 787,736 RMB or $114,041.46 CDN, for all aforementioned services.

The trial installation in Jincheng City has been thoroughly tested, inspected and approved. Subsequently, on November 16, 2005, BTT was awarded contracts for two more mines. These contracts include a total of 32 additional explosion proof cameras, 23 above ground cameras, four 42" plasma monitoring screens and ancillary equipment. The recent two contracts are larger than the initial trial installation at 792,749 RMB and 1,065,076 RMB, making the total value of the three Jincheng contracts $385,705 CDN.

Tranzcom is also pleased to announce that the pilot Digital Coal Mine Safety Monitoring System installed in Linfen city, announced on October 3, 2005, has now been tested and approved. Tranzcom fully expects that many more installations will be contracted shortly in Linfen and Jincheng.
