30 July 2009

MDM Engineering Group Ltd. (AIM: MDM), is pleased to announce that it has been awarded the contract for a Pre-Feasibility Study (PFS) for Mantra Resources Limited's (Mantra) Mkuju River Project (MRP) in Southern Tanzania.

The awarding of this contract comes after MDM's recent successful completion of the Scoping Study for the uranium project.

Mantra is an Australian listed mineral exploration company with a portfolio of advanced uranium projects in Southern Africa.

Mantra is currently carrying out a comprehensive resource drilling programme on the MRP.

The MDM Engineering team has a 20 year track record of undertaking scoping and feasibility studies, including designing and constructing some 52 metallurgical plants throughout Africa.

George Bennett, MDM Engineering Executive Director commented:
"Following the successful completion of the Mkuju River Project Scoping Study for Mantra, MDM is pleased to continue its relationship with Mantra through the award of the Pre-Feasibility Ptudy for this project. We have enjoyed a close working relationship with Mantra and look forward to our successful partnership continuing."
