    Inmet Mining Corporation - Correction from source

    TORONTO, Feb. 13 /CNW/ - Inmet Mining Corporation (TSX-IMN) ("Inmet") - A
correction from source is issued with respect to the Inmet press release
issued February 12, 2007 at 9:11 am EST.
    The fourth bullet on the first page entitled 2008 production estimates,
should have read "We expect Inmet's share of copper production to increase by
approximately 30 percent to 104,000 tonnes once Las Cruces begins
production...".
    In addition, the 2008 production objective for Las Cruces in the table at
the bottom of page 8 of the press release should have read "18,900", which is
Inmet's 70 percent share of Las Cruces' 2008 expected production of 27,000
tonnes. The total 2008 copper production objective in the table should
therefore have read "103,800". The corrected table is set out below:
