    Well here is the news we have been waiting for. How good does it look ?

    HOMEX - Melbourne

    SEPON PROJECT 80% OXIANA, 20% RIO TINTO

    Drilling results confirm Khanong deposit extensions. Resource remains
    open.

    Results received for a further 31 holes (KHN 246 KHN 275, KHN 295)
    from the Khanong copper deposit Bankable Feasibility Study (BFS)
    drilling programme have confirmed extensions to mineralisation in the
    south and west. The orebody still remains open in several directions
    (Figure 1).

    The majority of holes (26 of 31) reported significant copper
    mineralisation. Better results are as follows:

    HOLE NO EASTING NORTHING INTERCEPT DEPTH FROM METCODE

    KHN246 608000 1875500 7m @ 1.6% Cu Surface LCC
    KHN252 608300 1875500 25m @ 3.4% Cu 36 metres CC, CuO
    Including 8m @ 8.9% Cu 49 metres CC, CuO

    KHN255 607200 1875650 15m @ 1.6% Cu 34 metres CuO

    KHN261 608450 1875600 14m @ 1.6% Cu 47 metres CC, PR
    KHN263 608350 1875600 8m @ 1.2% Cu 50 metres CC
    KHN264 608200 1875600 14m @ 2.6% Cu 71 metres PR
    KHN267 608000 1875600 12m @ 1.2% Cu 2 metres LCC
    KHN270 608100 1875398 4m @ 3.6% Cu 62 metres LCC
    KHN272 608000 1875498 8m @ 1.3% Cu Surface LCC
    KHN273 607700 1875400 22m @ 4.8% Cu 21 metres LCC, CuO
    Including 7m @ 8.9% Cu 31 metres CC
    KHN274 607600 1875400 18m @ 1.4% Cu 2 metres LCC, CC
    and 10m @ 2.7% Cu 25 metres CC
    KHN295 607802 1875752 29m @ 5% Cu 56 metres CuO

    Note: sample interval is 1 metre; intercepts are weighted averages
    calculated using a 0.5% copper cut-off grade; maximum internal waste
    is 2 metres; metcode CC = chalcocite, CuO = copper oxide, PR =
    primary; LCC = Limonite + chalcocite; all holes are vertical.

    Significant gold results were also reported in holes KHN260 (11m @
    2.3g/t Au) and KHN263 (10m @1.2g/t Au) from the oxide gold cap which
    overlies part of the Khanong copper deposit.

    Following receipt of the final batch of BFS copper drilling assays a
    revised resource estimate will be completed.
