27 February 2012

MDM Engineering Group Limited (“MDM” or the “Company”) (AIM: MDM) the minerals process and project management company focused on the mining industry, is pleased to announce that it has been awarded the Bankable Feasibility Study (“BFS”) for Amari Manganese (PTY) Limited’s Kongoni project, located within the Kalahari manganese field. MDM will be responsible for the processing plant and surface engineering components of the study as well as being responsible for the overall study.

In July 2010 MDM completed a pre-feasibility study for the Kongoni Manganese project which has resulted in the successful award of the BFS to MDM

This study will establish the capital and operating costs for the mining crushing and screening as well as the associated infrastructure. MDM will confirm that the current plant design is suitable for the treatment of the defined ore body to be mined by Amari.

Martin Smith, MDM CEO said:
“We are delighted to have been awarded the bankable feasibility study for the Kongoni manganese project and we look forward to continuing a strong working relationship with Amari.  This comes on the back of the E(P)CM contract awarded to MDM in November 2010 for the Kalagadi Manganese project currently under construction near Amari’s Kongoni project.”
