Anvil Mining to Acquire 70% Interest in Kinsevere-Nambulwa Copper-Cobalt Project, DRC
TORONTO – Anvil Mining Limited (TSX and ASX: AVM) is pleased to announce it has entered into a joint venture agreement with Mining Company Katanga s.p.r.l. (MCK) to carry out feasibility study work on the Kinsevere-Nambulwa copper-cobalt deposits in Katanga Province of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), owned by La Générale des Carrières et des Mines (Gécamines), a DRC state-owned mining company. The Kinsevere-Nambulwa properties lie approximately 50 kilometres north of the Provincial capital of Lubumbashi and include two separate Exploitation Permits, Kinsevere and Nambulwa, totaling 19.5 square kilometres surrounded by a much larger area covered by Exploration Permits totaling 819 square kilometres. The two exploitation-permitted areas, approximately 25 kilometres apart, contain four distinct mineralized zones that outcrop at surface. Gécamines calculated in the early 1990s that three mineralized zones within the Kinsevere Exploitation Permit contain approximately 3 million tonnes of mineralized material with an average grade of 5.0-5.5% copper and 0.20-23% cobalt for approximately 180,000 tonnes of contained copper. This estimate was based on 66 diamond and RC (reverse circulation) drill holes completed by Gécamines to a maximum depth of 140 metres for a total of 2,817 metres of drilling. Gaps between the surface expressions of the individual mineralized zones range from 400 metres to 1,000 metres, and Anvil believes those gaps provide excellent exploration potential. Nambulwa, the second Exploitation Permit, also hosts an outcropping zone of mineralization but has had insufficient evaluation work completed to determine a meaningful estimate of mineralized material. However, limited trench sampling and three adits driven into the deposit has returned encouraging grades of up to 5.5% Cu over a mineralized width of up to 20 metres. Although the Company believes the above historical information is relevant in considering the acquisition of an interest in the Kinsevere-Nambulwa Project, it has not done the work necessary to verify its accuracy. Investors are cautioned that the potential quantity and grade of the Kinsevere-Nambulwa Project must be considered to be conceptual in nature, as there has been insufficient exploration to define a mineral resource on the property. Further, it is uncertain if further exploration will result in the discovery of a mineral resource on the Kinsevere-Nambulwa Project. The Company therefore does not consider the information to attain the standards required by National Instrument 43-101 and therefore cautions that investors should not rely on this historical information.

The Exploration Permits (totaling 819 square kilometres) surrounding the Kinsevere and Nambulwa Exploitation Permits contain nine known copper-cobalt occurrences in Mines Series rocks which are considered highly prospective. An aggressive exploration program will be initiated to determine whether or not these mineral occurrences can be incorporated into an expanded project around the known Kinsevere and Nambulwa mineralization. MCK holds an option to either acquire or lease from Gécamines, the exploitation and exploration permits that comprise the entire Kinsevere-Nambulwa Project, excluding a 5% interest to be retained by the DRC government. The acquisition or lease rental terms and conditions are defined as the fair market value based on contained copper as determined by the feasibility study work, which Anvil intends to complete within a period of two years. MCK’s acquisition agreement with Gécamines will be transferred to a special purpose joint venture company, in which Anvil will hold a 70% interest. The acquisition or lease of the properties following the successful completion of the feasibility study work will require the approval of the Gécamines’ board and the approval of the DRC Ministry of Mines. Based on an inspection of MCK’s small scale mining operation currently being conducted within the Kinsevere Exploitation Permit, and considering the highly fractured and oxidized nature of the mineralized material, Anvil believes that while the feasibility study work is in progress, the Company will be able to begin producing a marketable copper concentrate by relocating the Dikulushi Heavy Media Separation (HMS) plant, which, following the commissioning of the Stage II expansion, became surplus to the needs of the Dikulushi Mine. The proceeds from the sale of concentrates produced by the relocated HMS plant would be used to fund the cost of the evaluation and feasibility study work. During this period, Gécamines will receive a fee related to the number of tonnes mined and the total cost of mining. Anvil will fund the exploration and evaluation work until the HMS plant is operating and generating cash flow. “The participation in the Kinsevere and Nambulwa projects represents an excellent, low-cost opportunity to expand our operational presence in the DRC Copperbelt by making a very modest capital investment in return for a potentially very significant reward,” said Anvil President and CEO Bill Turner. “This decision is consistent with our strategy in the DRC of stepping carefully into quality projects that can quickly generate cash flow, yet provide significant upside potential.” Anvil’s entry into the Kinsevere-Nambulwa Joint Venture and its recent announcement to acquire a 70% interest in the Mutoshi copper-cobalt Project at Kolwesi will establish an operating presence in two separate regions of the DRC Copperbelt, referred to as Group Central and Group West. Anvil intends to use these initial positions to build a strong operating presence in these two regions of the DRC Copperbelt. Anvil Mining Limited is an unhedged copper and silver producer whose shares are listed for trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange and the Australian Stock Exchange under the symbol AVM. It owns and operates the Dikulushi copper-silver mine in the Katanga Province of the DRC, which was brought into production in October 2002 and recently completed an expansion to increase production by approximately 50% to 20,000 tonnes of copper and 1.6 million ounces of silver per year.

Anvil Finalizes a 70% Interest in Kinsevere and Nambulwa Copper-Cobalt Projects; Announces Initial Resource of 348,000 tonnes of Contained Copper
Anvil Mining Limited (TSX, ASX: AVM) is pleased to announce that it has completed an independent technical report and finalised negotiations with the La Générale des Carrières et des Mines (Gécamines) and the Mining Company of Katanga s.p.r.l (MCK) for the purchase of 70% of the mining rights for the Kinsevere and Nambulwa copper-cobalt deposits located 27 km northnorth-east of Lubumbashi, the provincial capital of the Katanga Province of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

Deal with Gecamines Finalized
An exclusive “Contrat d’Amodiation” (Lease Agreement) has been signed between MCK and Gécamines for a period of 25 years to mine and process ore from the Kinsevere and Nambulwa copper-cobalt deposits, the terms of which are outlined below. In conjunction with the finalization of this Lease Agreement, Anvil and MCK have signed a separate agreement giving Anvil a 70% interest in the Lease Agreement. This interest will in turn be assigned to a local company, AMCK s.p.r.l., a newly incorporated joint venture company between Anvil Mining Limited and MCK, which will be the operating company. Terms of the Lease Agreement Anvil will make a one-off payment of $2.3 million to MCK, part of which is a reimbursement of costs incurred by MCK to date. MCK will pay $1.0 million to Gécamines in three tranches; $800,000 on signing of the Lease Agreement and its approval by the DRC government, $100,000 upon endorsement of the tenements to MCK, and the final $100,000 four months after the commencement of commercial production. The Lease Agreement provides for the AMCK joint venture to make royalty payments to Gécamines on each tonne of commercially viable copper metal extracted from future mining operations on the Kinsevere-Nambulwa deposits. The royalty payment is calculated on both copper and cobalt mined as copper equivalent tonnes (Cueq) and varies from a floor price of $35 per tonne of Cueq at a London Metal Exchange (LME) copper price of $2,200 per tonne (or $1.00/lb Cu) to a ceiling price of US$70 per tonne of Cueq at an LME copper price of $4,000 per tonne (or $1.81/lb Cu). The royalty payments amount to US$0.016 per pound of copper equivalent (Cueq) mined at an LME copper price of US$1.00 per pound to US$0.032 per pound of copper equivalent (Cueq) mined at an LME copper price of US$1.80 per pound.

“The signing of the Kinsevere-Nambulwa Lease Agreement provides Anvil with the opportunity to develop its third high-grade open pit copper mining operation in the DRC,” commented Bill Turner President and CEO of Anvil Mining. “The Lease Agreement, which is provided for under the new DRC Mining Code introduced in 2003, offers our local partners Gécamines, MCK, the population and other stakeholders of the DRC, the opportunity to benefit from the rapid development of these exciting prospects as well as future exploration success in this prospective geological region.”

Significant Initial Mineral Resource at Kinsevere
The Kinsevere Project comprises three known fragments of mineralised Mines Series rocks, Kinsevere, Tshifufia and Tshifufiamashi located within exploitation permit, PE 528 (5.95km2). These were drilled by Anvil and MCK during 2005 for a total of 5,675 metres of reverse circulation (RC) drilling (84 drill holes) and 2,213 metres of diamond drilling (14 drill holes). The Nambulwa prospect, located 30 kilometres to the north of Kinsevere on PE 539 (16 km2) has yet to be evaluated. The results of the 2005 drilling program, which was supervised by Roger Tyler who is a Qualified Person in accordance with Canadian National Instrument 43-101, formed the basis of a resource estimation of the oxide zone to 100 metres vertical depth. An independent technical report was prepared by Gerry Fahey of Finore Pty Ltd (FinOre Mining Consultants) of Perth, Western Australia who is a Qualified Person in accordance with Canadian National Instrument 43-101, and will be filed within a month on the SEDAR website at www.sedar.com. This work demonstrated that the Kinsevere Project has significant resources as outlined in the Mineral Resource estimate tabulated below, plus significant further potential: KINSEVERE PROJECT MINERAL RESOURCE November 2005 Ore Grade Contained metal Description and Classification (tones) (% Cu) (tonnes of copper)
Indicated Resource Kinsevere Tshifufia Central Tshifufiamashi Total Kinsevere Indicated Inferred Resource Kinsevere Tshifufia Central Tshifufia South Tshifufiamashi Total Kinsevere Inferred 347,000 1,632,000 284,000 451,000 2,714,000 3.1 5.9 3.2 4.9 5.1 10,900 95,600 9,100 22,100 137,600 875,000 2,570,000 2,245,000 5,690,000 2.6 3.8 4.0 3.7 22,800 97,700 90,300 210,800

In addition to drill testing the oxide resources down to 100 metres vertical depth, some drill holes were extended down through the base of oxidation, to test for underlying sulphides. The first diamond drill hole drilled during the 2005 drill evaluation program under the Tshifufia Central deposit encountered an encouraging zone of sulphide mineralization. “The initial drilling results from the Kinsevere Project have exceeded our expectations,” commented Bill Turner. “Drilling has confirmed that mineralization on all three of the deposits is

Page 2

very significant and further exploration success is anticipated with the next stage of drilling, planned to commence as early as possible after the wet season in March next year.” Based on the results of the initial drilling program at Kinsevere and the anticipated results from the metallurgical testwork currently underway, the Company expects to be able to propose a development strategy for the Kinsevere Project by the third quarter 2006. On presently available information, the most likely strategy would be a staged development beginning with open pit mining and a concentrating facility that would produce a copper concentrate which would be sold or toll treated through existing metallurgical facilities in Sub-Saharan Africa, with the ultimate objective of establishing an SXEW (solvent extraction-electrowinning) facility that would produce cathode copper within 5 years of the commencement of initial mining operations.

transaction, expected to occur in the third quarter of 2006. All other terms and conditions of the joint venture with MCK will remain in full force and effect. “The acquisition of this additional interest in Kinsevere reflects our positive outlook for this project and is in line with our strategy for growth in the DRC Copperbelt, long recognized for its high copper and cobalt grades,” commented Bill Turner, President and CEO of Anvil. Last November, the Company announced initial resources on the three Kinsevere deposits (Tshifufia, Tshifufiamashi and Kinsevere Hill). The resource comprised 210,800 tonnes in indicated resource and 137,600 tonnes in inferred resources, of contained copper in the oxide zone alone. The Company is currently carrying out extensive drilling of the Tshifufia Central deposit as a result of the recently announced increase in the thickness of the Third Orebody of this deposit. A final report on the estimate of the oxide resource at the Tshifufia Central deposit is expected to be available at the end of September 2006. In May of this year, the Company announced the commencement of Stage I development at Kinsevere. “We anticipate completion of the Kinsevere Stage I development at an estimated capital expenditure of $35 million, by the end of the first quarter 2007. Significant production should be achieved in the second quarter and the project is expected to ultimately produce approximately 2325,000 tonnes per annum of “black-copper” ingots grading 85%-95% copper. Kinsevere is the Company’s third mine development in the DRC since 2002 and provides a solid base for substantial growth in that country,” said Bill Turner. Anvil Mining Limited is an unhedged copper and silver producer with two operating mines in the DRC and whose shares are listed for trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange and the Australian Stock Exchange under the symbol AVM.

Anvil to Move to 95% Interest in Kinsevere-Nambulwa Copper-Cobalt Joint Venture
Montréal, Canada: Anvil Mining Limited (TSX, ASX: AVM) (“Anvil”) is pleased to announce it has entered into an agreement to acquire an additional 15% interest in the mining rights for the Kinsevere-Nambulwa copper-cobalt deposits located 27km north of Lubumbashi, the provincial capital of the Katanga Province of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (“DRC”). The additional interest will be acquired from Mining Company Katanga s.p.r.l. (“MCK”), a private DRC company that is Anvil’s joint venture partner in the Kinsevere-Nambulwa project. Anvil’s interest in the Kinsevere-Nambulwa Joint Venture will increase from 80% to 95% on closing of this transaction. Terms of the agreement Under the terms of the agreement, Anvil will pay a total of $45 million in cash and common shares for this additional 15% interest in the project, taking its interest in the joint venture to 95%. The agreement provides for Anvil to make payments of $10 million in cash upon the signing of the agreement, $26 million in cash at closing, and $9 million in common shares of Anvil Mining Limited. An aggregate of 872,093 common shares will be issued on closing at a price of US$10.32 per share. When issued, the common shares will be subject to a four-month hold period in accordance with Canadian securities regulations. Completion of the transaction is subject to entering into a definitive agreement, approval by Anvil’s Board of Directors and receipt of regulatory approvals, including the approval of the TSX. “This is the second time in less than 6 months that we have acquired a further interest in the Kinsevere-Nambulwa copper-cobalt Joint Venture. This acquisition is consistent with our positive outlook for this project, and our expectation that this will be a large, long-term mining and downstream processing operation,” commented Bill Turner, President and CEO of Anvil Mining. As reported by the Company in November 2005, an exclusive “Contrat d’Amodiation” (Lease Agreement) was signed between MCK and La Générale des Carrières et des Mines (“Gécamines”) for a period of 25 years, to mine and process ore from the Kinsevere and Nambulwa copper-cobalt deposits. The Lease Agreement was signed under the new DRC Mining Code introduced in 2003. The joint venture over the Kinsevere-Nambulwa project is held by a local company in the DRC, AMCK s.p.r.l. (“AMCK”). AMCK is an incorporated joint venture company between Anvil and MCK and is the operating company for the joint venture. Anvil’s interest in AMCK, and therefore Anvil’s interest in the Lease Agreement, will increase from 80% to 95% on closing of this

transaction, expected to occur later in the first quarter of 2007. All other terms and conditions of the joint venture with MCK will remain in full force and effect. Resource Drilling The first Mineral Resource estimate for the Kinsevere Project was announced in November 2005, based on a Phase 1 drilling program of 7,889 metres carried out on Tshifufia, Tshifufiamashi and Kinsevere Hill deposits. The 2006 Phase 2 drilling program, which focussed entirely on the Tshifufia deposit, totalled 17,220 metres and resulted in the discovery of a much thicker coppermineralized zone at Tshifufia than expected. On January 9, 2007 the Company announced a revised Mineral Resource estimate which included the results of the 2006 Phase 2 drilling program. The Measured and Indicated Mineral Resource estimate at the Tshifufia deposit now stands at 16.9 million tonnes at 4.4% Cu for 752,200 tonnes of contained copper, which represents a 770% increase to the previous Indicated oxide resource base at the Tshifufia deposit alone, and a 450% increase for the Kinsevere Project as a whole. Furthermore, the average grade of the Measured and Indicated oxide resource at the Tshifufia deposit has increased to 4.4% copper, up from 3.8% copper for the Indicated oxide resource from the 2005 drilling. In addition to drill testing the oxide copper resources at the Tshifufia deposit, the underlying sulphide mineralization was also drill tested. An Inferred Mineral Resource of 15.3 million tonnes at 2.9% Cu for 436,700 tonnes of contained copper has been defined from the eight holes drilled into sulphides, to date. Phase 2 drilling on the neighboring Tshifufiamashi and Kinsevere Hill deposits will be undertaken in 2007, along with initial drilling on the Nambulwa deposit (located 30km north of Kinsevere). Staged Mine Development Program In May 2006, following completion of a feasibility study, Anvil committed to a $35 million Stage I development at Kinsevere, which is due for commissioning during the second quarter of 2007. The Stage I development, which comprises a Heavy Media Separation Plant and Electric-Arc Furnace is expected to produce approximately 23,000-25,000 tonnes per annum of “black copper” ingots assaying 90%-95% copper. The Phase 2 drilling results from the Tshifufia deposit have exceeded expectations and, due to the size of the latest Mineral Resource estimate and the significant further potential that now exists, the scale of the planned Stage II SX-EW plant, which is currently the subject of a feasibility study, has doubled from 30,000 to 60,000 tonnes per annum of SX-EW copper. The Stage II feasibility study is expected to be completed during the second quarter of 2007. Anvil Mining Limited is an unhedged copper and silver producer whose shares are listed for trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange (as common shares) and the Australian Stock Exchange (as CDIs) under the symbol AVM. It owns and operates the Dikulushi copper-silver mine and the Kulu coarse rejects/tailings operation in Katanga Province of the DRC. In addition, the Company is currently developing the Kinsevere Stage I copper-cobalt project, which will be the Company’s third mine development in the DRC.

Anvil Mining Limited Government Review of Kinsevere and Kulu Mining Rights
Montréal, Canada: Anvil Mining Limited (TSX, ASX: AVM) (“Anvil” or the “Company”) announces that it has now received letters from the Minister of Mines for the Democratic Republic of the Congo (“DRC”) notifying Anvil of the Government’s position as a consequence of the review by the DRC Government of the mining rights which Anvil’s subsidiaries hold in respect of Anvil’s Kinsevere and Kulu mining properties. On February 19, Anvil announced the details of the Government’s position with respect to Anvil’s Dikulushi property. Anvil has majority interests in and operates the Dikulushi copper-silver mine, the Kinsevere copper mine and the Kulu copper tailings operation, all in the Katanga Province of the DRC. The office of the Minister of Mines has also advised Anvil that the deadline for responding to the Government’s position has been extended to February 27, 2008. Anvil will shortly submit a response to the letters received from the Minister of Mines in respect of all three of its properties in the DRC and will seek discussions with the Minister of Mines. Further details of the letters received in respect of Kinsevere and Kulu are set forth below. Kinsevere Mine The mining rights to the Kinsevere project tenement areas are currently held through a 25 year mining lease agreement between La Générale des Carrières et des Mines (“Gécamines”), a Congolese para-statal entity that is the mining title holder, and Mining Company Katanga sprl (“MCK”). MCK is in the process of assigning the lease to AMCK Mining sprl, which is a joint venture company owned as to 95% by Anvil and 5% by MCK. The Minister’s position is that the existing contractual arrangements with Gécamines have financial terms that ought to be renegotiated. The specific requirements stated by the Minister are that: the cash bonus paid to Gécamines should be increased to $150 million, the ceiling on rent paid of a maximum of $70 per tonne of copper equivalent should be removed and the contract altered to reflect changes in metal prices,

-

-

the term of the contract with Gécamines (which extends for 25 years) should coincide with the term of the underlying mineral tenures, which have an initial term that expires on 3 April 2009 and which are renewable thereafter for successive periods of fifteen years, and AMCK should submit to the Government a plan for social programs that will have a visible impact.

Pursuant to the existing contracts in relation to the Kinsevere Mine, a lease premium of $1 million has been paid by Anvil and there is no provision for additional payments. Rent is payable on a sliding scale that varies with the price of copper and is between $35 and $70 per tonne of copper equivalent, with the maximum rent payable being reached at a copper price of $4,000 per tonne. In addition, a 2% net smelter return royalty is payable to the DRC Government pursuant to the Mining Code. Kulu Mine The Kulu copper tailings operation is an incorporated exploration and mining joint venture between a subsidiary of Anvil, Entreprise Minière de Kolwezi (“EMIKO”), and Gécamines. The mineral rights to the Kulu operation are held under two principal tenements, both of which were originally in the name of Gécamines and were transferred to Société Minière de Kolwezi sprl (“SMK”) in 2005 and 2006. EMIKO holds 80% of the shares of SMK and Gécamines holds the remaining 20%. The Minister’s position is that the interest of Gécamines in SMK is unfairly low, in part due to the absence of a feasibility study, and that the joint venture must therefore be renegotiated. The specific requirements stated by the Minister are that: a feasibility study be submitted which identifies the actual contributions of the parties in order to establish a fair balance of shares in SMK as between EMIKO and Gécamines, a royalty of at least 2% of gross revenue be provided in favour of Gécamines, Gécamines must be actively involved in the day to day management of SMK, and SMK should submit to the Government a plan for social programs that will have a visible impact.

A feasibility study was submitted to Gécamines in 2005. The current agreements with Gécamines provide for a 2% net smelter return royalty to be paid to Gécamines. In addition, a 2% net smelter return royalty is payable to the DRC Government pursuant to the Mining Code. The agreements governing SMK provide that Gécamines has the right to appoint three of the eight members of the management board of SMK and EMIKO has the right to appoint the other five members. The President of the management board is to be chosen from the members appointed by EMIKO and the Vice President of the management board is to be chosen from the members appointed by Gecamines. In addition, the position of General Manager shall be filled by a candidate presented by EMIKO and the position of Assistant General Manger shall be filled by a candidate presented by Gécamines. Conference call A conference call will be held at 8:00 a.m. (EST - North America, Toronto time) on Thursday, February 21, coinciding with 10:00 pm (AWST - Australia, Perth time) on the same day, to discuss

Dikulushi Mining Convention The Company has concluded discussions with Gécamines and the DRC Government regarding the Convention and the terms and conditions of the Convention have not changed. Under the Convention, which was signed by the DRC Minister of Mines, Minister of Finance and Minister of Plan & National Reconstruction on January 31, 1998, and ratified by Presidential Decree No. 60 on February 27, 1998, Anvil, through its 90% owned subsidiary Anvil Mining Congo SARL is guaranteed sole and exclusive rights for exploitation of the area governed by the Convention, for a minimum period of 20 years from the date of the issue of the tenure. The remaining 10% of the equity in the Dikulushi mine is held in trust by the Company for the economic, social and infrastructure development of the Dikulushi region. Since commencement of operations in 2004, the Company has invested approximately $18 million in various social programs and infrastructure developments in the Dikulushi region. While the terms and conditions of the Convention have remained unchanged, Anvil has agreed to revise the trust structure under which the surrounding communities’ interests in the Dikulushi mine are held, in order to provide for more direct involvement of DRC authorities and the local communities, in the implementation of social and economic development programs. Bill Turner further commented, “Dikulushi was the Company’s first mine in the DRC. Negotiation of the Dikulushi Mining Convention and development of the Dikulushi mine were undertaken during an especially difficult period in the DRC’s history and we are pleased that the DRC Government has upheld the terms and conditions of the Convention.” Mutoshi Joint Venture Agreement Discussions with Gécamines to complete an amended Mutoshi Joint Venture Agreement continue to progress, using as a basis, the commercial terms agreed with Gécamines and the DRC Government in October 2008. The Company is confident that a satisfactory agreement can be reached with its joint venture partner Gécamines.

Extension of Offer Period for Takeover Bid and Update on Discussions with DRC Stakeholders
Perth, Australia: Anvil Mining Limited (TSX, ASX: AVM) (“Anvil” or the “Company”). Reference is made to the offer by MMG Malachite Limited (the “Offeror”), a wholly owned indirect subsidiary of Minmetals Resources Limited (“MMR”), to purchase all of the Common Shares of Anvil on a fully-diluted basis (including those Common Shares that are subject to CHESS Depository Interests) at a purchase price of C$8.00 per share in cash (the “Offer”). The Offeror has now extended the expiry time of the Offer, from 8:00 pm (Toronto time) on January 11, 2012, to 8:00 p.m. (Toronto time) on February 16, 2012, unless the Offer is further extended or withdrawn. By virtue of this extension, the “CDI Expiry Time” as defined in the Offer and Offer documents, has been automatically extended to 7:00 p.m. (Sydney time) on February 14, 2012, unless the Offer is further extended or withdrawn. Since the initial announcement of the takeover bid on September 29, 2011, Anvil and MMR have been consulting with various stakeholders in the Democratic Republic of Congo (“DRC”). As announced on October 31, 2011, during consultations with La Générale des Carrières et des Mines Sarl (“Gécamines”), Anvil and MMR were advised that if the takeover is completed without Gécamines’ prior approval, Anvil’s local DRC subsidiaries would be in breach of the terms of the lease of the mineral tenure for the Kinsevere Project and the terms of the joint venture agreement in respect of the Mutoshi Project. There can be no assurance that the parties will reach agreement on the terms of revised commercial arrangements with Gécamines. The approval of MMR would be required in order for Anvil to implement revised arrangements with Gécamines. The Kinsevere Project is held as to 95% by a wholly-owned Congolese subsidiary of Anvil, which in turn holds a lease from Gécamines of the underlying mineral tenures. The remaining 5% interest in the Kinsevere Project is held by a private Congolese company, Mining Company Katanga SPRL (“MCK”). During the course of the ongoing discussions with Gécamines, Anvil and MMR have been advised by MCK that its prior approval of the takeover bid is required. MCK has also made allegations to the effect that its rights under the shareholders’ agreement governing the Kinsevere Project have not been respected by Anvil. Anvil’s position is that there is no legal requirement for the approval of either Gécamines’ or MCK under any of its contractual documentation with either entity in connection with the

proposed change of control and that Anvil has fully complied with its contractual obligations. As previously disclosed, there will be a requirement to give Gécamines a right of pre-emption in connection with the Mutoshi Project, which MMR and Anvil are fully aware of and intend to comply with. MMR and Anvil have previously agreed that Anvil’s 70% interest in the Mutoshi Project has a value of US$52.5 million. Discussions with each of Gécamines and MCK by Anvil and its advisors and with MMR are ongoing. There can be no assurance that the parties will reach agreement on revised commercial arrangements with Gécamines or any agreement with MCK relating to its demands and allegations, in both cases on terms satisfactory to MMR. Consequently, there can be no assurance that MMR will consummate the Offer. The Offeror has retained Kingsdale Shareholder Services Inc. (“Kingsdale”) as information agent to respond to inquiries from Anvil shareholders regarding the Offer. Kingsdale may be contacted toll-free at 1-866-581-1392 or collect from outside North America at +1-416-8672272. The Depositary for the Offer is Computershare Investor Services Inc.
