Dioro Exploration NL - Short term toll milling trial highlights


    PERTH, Western Australia, May 18 /CNW/ - DIORO EXPLORATION NL ABN 31 009
271 532 (ASX/TSX: DIO) - Dioro Exploration NL ("Dioro") is pleased to announce
that its wholly owned subsidiary HBJ Minerals Pty Ltd ("HBJ") and La Mancha
Resources Australia Pty Ltd ("La Mancha") have agreed to a short term trial
for the processing of 100% of the ore from the Frog's Leg mine through the
Jubilee Processing Facility. The Frog's Leg mine is owned 51% by La Mancha and
49% by Dioro. The Jubilee Processing Facility is owned 100% by HBJ. La
Mancha's share of the ore in this trial will be processed on a per tonne toll
basis. Currently La Mancha's Frog's Leg ore is processed through another toll
milling facility.
    The trial involves processing a batch of approximately 58,000 dry tonnes
of ore supplied to the Jubilee Processing facility by the La Mancha/Dioro
Joint Venture. The trial is scheduled to be completed by 28 May 2009.
    Dioro's Managing Director Rhod Grivas said "There are obvious cost
savings for both parties and synergies if the Frog's Leg Joint Venture ore is
processed through a single processing facility. The Jubilee Mill is a 1.2 mtpa
processing facility which has proved to be a low cost processor over its 20
year continuous operating mine life."
