    Perseverance Corporation Limited Directors today announced one of the
    most significant gold discoveries in Australia in recent years at the
    Company's 100% owned Fosterville property. The Company reported a
    high grade sulphide resource of 4.7 million tonnes grading 5.8 Au g/t
    containing 875000 oz of gold within the central zone of the
    Fosterville lease. The Fosterville property is situated 20 km to the
    east of Bendigo in Central Victoria. Central Victoria is one of the
    largest gold districts in the world.

    Mr John Quinn, the Company's Executive Chairman, commented, "The Deep
    Sulphide program had been an outstanding success. It has demonstrated
    that Fosterville contains a major mineral system in which
    Perseverance has defined a significant gold resource that remains
    open down plunge and along strike of each of the three shoots drilled
    to date. The high grade resource occurs within coherent zones with
    substantial thickness and strike lengths." He noted that the Deep
    Sulphide program had partially tested only 2 km of the known
    mineralised fault zones at Fosterville to a depth of 500 metres
    beneath surface. He said that Perseverance has 20 strike kms of
    mineralised fault systems within the Fosterville lease and that gold
    deposits in Central Victoria were known to extend, in some places, to
    beyond 1500 metres beneath surface. "The Company has already
    identified 11 other sulphide occurrences at Fosterville that require
    detailed testing. Based upon the current understanding of gold
    occurrence at Fosterville, it is reasonable to expect to identify
    more targets both under thin cover and at depth beneath known
    mineralised shoots. Perseverance is only just scratching the surface
    at Fosterville and the Company has a very exciting future in a
    re-discovered goldfield demonstrating genuine multi-million oz.

    The Company also announced that it would be immediately proceeding
    with the next stage of its program to drill out the known ore zones
    and commence prefeasibility studies for a mine development targeted
    for 2003. It would also be seeking to extend the resource base by
    exploratory drilling further targets along strike and at depth
    beneath the three shoots identified to date.
