    Afternoon Jeb,
    The follow is a summary of the presentation given by Terry Allen on HER at the three day "Mining 2002 Resources Convention" in Brisbane on October 30th and 31st, and November 1st.


    · Dairi zinc project in Indonesia is a world class discovery – resource statement is 12 months old – a new calculation would look much more impressive
    · Old Indicated resource is 7.5 mt at 16.7% Zn, 10.3% Pb, Inferred is 2.5 mt at 11.3% Zn and 6.8% Pb
    · Most zinc mines in the world have grades of 3-10% Zn – only about five mines have grades better than 15%, and Dairi will join the exclusive club
    · ASSIRT has done a study based on a resource of 10 mt at 15% Zn, 9% Pb – assumed 1 mtpa operation producing 120,000 tpa Zn, 72,000 tpa Pb, 334,000 oz pa Ag – using metal prices of $820 pt Zn and $450 pt Pb – the mine would produce a gross metal value of US$130m p.a.
    · ASSIRT valued the company at $1.61 - $1.72 a share i.e. four times the current share price.
    · Prefeasibility study has commenced and a final feasibility study will be done next year
    · “Equivalent of finding Mt Isa or Broken Hill”
    · Herald also a gold producer again at Coolgardie, with MPI – four year mine life at this stage
    Comment: Had Herald made the Dairi discovery in the mid 1990s the shares would have been well through the $2m mark and it would have developed a mine. However, there is no escaping the political reality of today. No-matter how good the project is the investors will heavily discount the value due to its location in Indonesia.
