Brazilian Resources Announces Amended Itiquira Feasibility Study

CONCORD, NH, Aug. 30 /CNW/ - Brazilian Resources, Inc. (“Brazilian” or the “Company”) has completed an amended feasibility study (the “Feasibility Study”) on its Itiquira Limestone Project (the “Itiquira Project”) in the state of Mato Grosso, Brazil. The NI 43-101 compliant Feasibility Study was conducted by Salt Lake City based TechnoMine Services, LLC (“TechnoMine”) and has been filed on the System for Electronic Document Analysis and Retrieval (“SEDAR”) at

Based on the findings of the Feasibility Study, Brazilian is advancing its 66.4% owned Itiquira Project toward production of 1,000,000 tonnes of limestone per year over an estimated initial 11- year mine life based on current proven mineral reserve estimates of 12,500,000 tonnes. The Itiquira Project area contains limestone measured resources currently estimated at 27,000,000 tonnes. Brazilian believes these resources can be converted to reserves with additional exploration, potentially increasing the mine life and annual production rate beyond the present estimate.

The Feasibility Study proposes open pit mining using a hydraulic excavator and front-end loaders to load trucks for transport to a nearby crushing, grinding, screening, storage and loadout facility.

Brazilian has begun pre-construction activities and plans to begin construction of the Itiquira Project during September 2010 and reach commercial production in Q2 2011. A total of US$ 22.7 million capital expenditure is expected over a period of eight months. All the necessary licenses to construct the Itiquira Project are in-place.
