About New Dawn:

New Dawn is a Zimbabwe-focused junior gold company that is currently expanding its consolidated gold production to 50,000 to 60,000 ounces of gold within the next 18 to 24 months.  New Dawn targets further increasing gold production to 100,000 ounces of annualized gold production within the next four to five years.   New Dawn owns 100% of the Turk/Angelus mine complex in Zimbabwe.  New Dawn also owns a controlling interest in Central African Gold ("CAG"), through its acquisition of an 89% controlling interest in CAG in June 2010 (subsequently increased to approximately 96.4%).  CAG owns substantial gold mining assets and operations in Zimbabwe, as well as extensive prospective acreage.  In total, New Dawn operates three significant gold camps in Zimbabwe containing six mines, three of which are currently producing gold and in the process of expanding production.

Additionally, New Dawn, with its first mover advantage, is actively exploring on highly prospective ground employing modern exploration techniques and deploying capital in Zimbabwe, a country that is proven to be geologically rich, highly prospective, and significantly under explored.

New Dawn, with its large gold resource, existing production facilities and current exploration efforts, is well on the path to becoming a leading mid-tier gold mining company in Zimbabwe, active in both gold production and gold exploration.

The Government of Zimbabwe is in the process of implementing an indigenisation policy wherein all businesses are to be 51% owned by indigenous Zimbabweans. New Dawn is continuing to discuss the outlines of its indigenisation plan with the Government of Zimbabwe, the objective of which is the design and implementation of a plan that both complies with the relevant regulations and allows the Company to pursue its goal of becoming a leading mid-tier gold mining company in Zimbabwe. The Company will provide further information to shareholders with respect to its indigenisation plan as and when such discussions have been concluded, or when developments otherwise warrant.
