About TVI Pacific Inc. (TSX:TVI)

TVI Pacific Inc. is a publicly-listed Canadian mining company focused on exploring for and producing precious and base metals within district scale systems in Asia.

In the Philippines, TVI's most advanced project, the Canatuan Mine, (the first foreign-invested, new, mining project in the Philippines) began mining and milling operations in mid-2004, producing gold and silver dore. Mill throughput is currently over 1,800 dmtpd (generating approximately 160 -190 AuEqOz per day avg.) from a gossan/oxide zone. Further expansion of the mill's processing capacity is underway. TVI has received a completed feasibility study on the Canatuan Sulphide project prepared by Norwest Corporation. A NI 43-101 report based on the Norwest study, now filed on SEDAR, addresses the copper-zinc bearing massive sulphide zone, or lower portion of the Canatuan Deposit. Management anticipates that a separate plant will be constructed to process the sulphide ore if a determination is made to bring the Sulphide Project into production. In addition, TVI holds a 2.5% net smelter return (NSR) royalty on the Philippine-based Rapu Rapu project (the second foreign-invested, new, mining project in the Philippines operated by Lafayette Mining Ltd.). Exploration in the Philippines is being conducted at Canatuan (both to expand TVI's resource base and to find new deposits), and at Balabag, Tamarok and Tapisa, which management of TVI views as compelling exploration properties.

In China, TVI's wholly-owned Chinese subsidiary, Hunan Pacific Geological Exploration Inc. (HPGEI) is the first and only foreign mining company to be granted both WOFE status and a Qualified Explorer License. The exploration program in China is focused primarily within the Golden Triangle area, a highly prospective metallogenic region in China's south-western provinces of Yunnan, Guizhou and Guangxi Autonomous Region and prospective areas in the Tibet Autonomous Region. HPGEI has 2,394 sq kms of land under application in China in the Golden Triangle and in the Tibet A.R.

TVI also has a Drilling Division consisting of Exploration Drilling Corporation (EDCO), a wholly-owned subsidiary of TVI Pacific Inc. based in the Philippines, and Hunan Pacific Drilling (HPD), a division of HPGEI based in China, which generates revenue from contract drilling.
