    Question: When is a fully debt funded project not a fully debt funded project?
    Answer: When the project is run by Sally Malay and they do a placement equal to approx. 30% of the listed capital AFTER earlier saying the project was fully funded. Go figure.

    SALLY MALAY MAKES PLACEMENT TO RAISE $5.85 MILLION

    * Local and offshore institutional investors agree to subscribe for
    20.185 million shares at 29 cents per share.

    EQUITY RAISING

    Sally Malay Mining Limited (ASX: SMY) is pleased to advise that local
    and overseas based institutional investors have agreed to subscribe
    for 20,185,000 fully paid ordinary shares at an issue price of 29
    cents per share to raise $5.85 million. The funds to be raised from
    this placement represent equity required by the project financiers as
    a condition precedent to the drawdown of the Sally Malay Project
    Senior Financing Facility.

    This placement will be conditional upon shareholder approval at an
    extraordinary general meeting to be held as soon as practicable. This
    placement is made in accordance with Section 708 of the Corporations
    Act and the Company advises that no shares in this placement were
    placed with any directors or their associates.

    COMMENTARY

    This placement to Australian and North American based institutional
    investors is a significant milestone for the Company and the Sally
    Malay Project. It is the first time institutional investors have
    taken shares in the Company and confirms confidence in the Sally
    Malay Nickel Project to deliver strong cash flows following scheduled
    start up in early 2004. This is at a time when nickel prices are
    expected to be strong based on a forecast supply deficit in the
    global nickel market.

    PROJECT FINANCING

    The Senior Project Financing Facility documentation has been
    finalised and it is anticipated that the execution of the
    documentation will take place next week.

    PROJECT DEVELOPMENT

    The Sally Malay Project development timetable is on track with site
    works scheduled to commence during July 2003. The 42 person
    construction camp is on site and operational in preparation for
    mobilisation of earthworks contractors.
