                Unaudited Consolidated Interim Results for the six months ended 31st December 2012


CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER'S STATEMENT

Dear Shareholder,

I am pleased to present the interim financial and operating results for IMC for the six months to 31st December
2012.

The second half of 2012 proved to be an exciting time for your company, the highlight being the discovery of
"bonanza" grade gold during drilling at Boley, Co. Wexford which yielded grades of 354g/t gold (11.38oz/t gold)
within a 13.5m interval averaging 3.5g/t gold.

This exceptional result followed on from other previous positive results and further drilling results have
identified three distinct gold zones in this licence area.

Further work is presently being carried out in Wexford, including the reprocessing of available airborne geophysics
and geochemical surveys, all of which will give a clear definition of the enormous potential of the Wexford licence
area.

In Tulla Co. Clare findings from further drilling, backed up by an independent Competent Person's Report, confirmed
the area's potential to host significant zinc and other base metal mineralisation.  Features of a type associated
with Silvermines, Lisheen and Galmoy Zn-Pb deposits were identified which endorsed the directors' belief that the
Tulla area hosts significant base metal mineralisation.

The recent award by the Department of Communications, Energy and Natural Resources of two licences in Avoca, Co.
Wicklow is a significant achievement by the company. This is a further endorsement of our progress to date as well
as our ability to put in place professional, competent and achievable strategic plans to maximise the potential of
each licence area.

We have already commissioned an independent report on the Avoca Licence area, where drilling targets have been
identified and a detailed program of exploration, drilling and analysis of our five licence areas in
Wicklow/Wexford is underway.

We will keep you, our shareholders, informed of all developments as your company enters a further exciting stage of
its development.



Dr Glenn Millar,
Chief Executive Officer

Expenditure on exploration activities is deferred on areas of interest until a reasonable assessment 
can be determined of the existence or otherwise of economically recoverable reserves. No amortisation 
has been charged in the period. The directors have reviewed the carrying value of the exploration and 
evaluation assets and consider it to be fairly stated and not impaired at 31 December 2012. The 
recoverability of the exploration and evaluation assets is dependent on the successful development or 
disposal of the Group's licence areas.
