Notes to Editors

 About Frontier Mining Ltd:

Frontier Mining Ltd. is a mineral exploration and development Company that is incorporated in the Cayman Islands for the purpose of exploring and developing gold and copper deposits in the Republic of Kazakhstan. Through its subsidiaries and affiliates, Frontier locates, evaluates, acquires, explores and develops mineral properties.

Frontier currently owns two licenses in Kazakhstan.  They are the Naimanjal exploration and mining licence, held by FML Kazakhstan, and, 50% of U.S. Megatech BVI which holds the Benkala licence. FML Kazakhstan is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Frontier Mining Ltd.  Frontier has one producing gold mine, Naimanjal; one pre-feasibility stage gold project, Koskuduk; and the recently acquired 50% interest in the Benkala copper mine.

Frontier also has a potential copper porphyry deposit with associated gold and molybdenum, Baitimir; and several copper/gold prospects along a 25-km trend including both VMS and porphyry types.  Metallurgical tests on its Beschoku and Yubileiny copper projects confirm the oxide copper ore is amenable to extraction using low cost SX-EW technology.

Frontier owns a 50% interest U.S. Megatech BVI, the joint venture company that owns  KazCopper LLP, which in turn owns 100% of the Benkala copper-molybdenum-gold deposit located in north-western Kazakhstan within the Urals gold/copper ore belt.

A Competent Persons Report ("CPR") valuation report on the oxide section  of the Benkala project completed by Wardell Armstrong International ("WAI") in June 2010 has resulted in an NPV of $190 million  based on 0.5% diluted copper grade, 63% recovery and 185 000 ton of contained metal and 6,000 USD per tonne copper price. The oxide copper project represents development of approximately 10% of the total resource at Benkala and Frontier will use the production platform of the SX-EW project to finance further evaluation and technical studies required to advance development of the significant Benkala sulphide resource.

Frontier maintains an administrative office in Almaty, the former capital city of Kazakhstan and the main business centre in the southeast. The Company also maintains an office in Semipalatinsk, close to the Naimanjal operations, which is the base for all exploration and development personnel with additional administrative support for exploration. Semipalatinsk is 830 kilometres north of Almaty, connected by regular commercial airline services.
