    Kansai Mining Corporation is a mining and exploration company with gold
interests in Kenya and diamonds in Venezuela trading on the TSX Venture
    On the Migori Gold project in Kenya the Company's technical report filed
on SEDAR in 2006 established 4 main zones of gold mineralization containing,
as presently explored, 33 million tonnes @ 1.10 g/t Au for 1.172 million
ounces as indicated resources from the drilling of more than 50,000 metres in
about 600 angled drilled holes. Additional drilling has been completed since
2006 with the most recent drilling activity in late 2007 for which additional
results are pending.
    On the Natal Diamond project in Venezuela Kansai has conducted some
drilling and bulk sampling, and needs to do more of the latter. "We have got
500-600 ct from about 15,000 t of material taken. However, we need to take out
more than 1,000 ct and up to 5,000 ct before we know what that diamond
population means," says Mr. Walsham. The company already has a pilot
production plant with a 50-70 t/h scrubber, a 10 t/h dense-media separation
(DMS) plant and an X-ray recovery unit. For now, the next stage is more
exploration and the Belmudez zone, in particular, needs two long, ramped
trenches, which Kansai has applied for permission to cut.

    This release has been compiled by Mr. Bruce Walsham as CEO of Kansai who
is a qualified person in terms of National Instrument 43-101.

    The TSX has not reviewed and does not accept responsibility for the
    adequacy or accuracy of this news release.
