About Strieborná

Strieborna, located in eastern Slovakia (a full-fledged member of the European Union), is a high-grade silver-copper-antimony deposit with a defined resource.  The project is part of an historic mining district near the town of Roznava, known for its iron ore production and the neighbouring Maria Mine (now shut down).  The resource occurs within a mineralized structure 1.2 kilometres long, 600 metres deep and having an average thickness of 3.4 metres.  The resource has been defined by previous drilling and a series of four horizontal underground drifts totaling 3,000 metres.  The mineralization is open in various directions along the vein structure.  Other similar structures have been identified within the mining and exploration leases, and these will also be tested for metal potential in this and the subsequent drill programs.

Besides the upside exploration potential and the high-grade nature of the polymetallic mineralization, the project has excellent infrastructure, including sufficient electrical power, railway access, paved highways and a work force experienced with underground operations.  Underground access is available through the adjacent Maria Mine workings.

In compliance with NI 430-101, George W. Heard, MBA, PEng, is the qualified person responsible for the accuracy of this release.  The full complete NI 43-101 technical report for Strieborna can be found on SEDAR or Global's website.

Global Minerals Ltd. is a Canadian exploration and development company focused on developing its advance high-grade silver, copper, antimony Strieborna Project in Slovakia.  Global is 35% owned by Esperanza Resource Corp. (EPZ.V) whose principles were previously familiar with the Strieborna Project and are now intimately involved in supervising the technical programs and future development.
