Kansai visible gold seen in MD 28 in drilling on Migori property in Kenya

    PAYSON, AZ, Dec. 2 /CNW/ - Kansai Mining Corporation (TSX Venture
Exchange: KAN) is pleased to announce that the new Migori diamond drilling
program has proceeded well through November 2007.
    To date 6 angled holes, comprising 860 metres of drilling have been
completed, namely MD 26-31 inclusive. The drill holes MD 26, MD 27 and MD 28
test the Gori Maria mineralised zone. Several zones of mineralization were
observed in each of these holes. Visible gold was seen at 138 metre depth in
MD 28.
    MD 29, 30 and 31 tested the Macalder Gossan zone, hitherto merely
    MD 32 is in progress currently. Zones of mineralization occur in each
hole, but MD 29 and MD 31 were terminated in old stopes at 115 metres and
49 metres respectively where they intersected the massive sulphide ore body
mined between 1937 and 1962.
    On completion of MD 32 the rig will move to the Nyanza mineralised zone
for a 4 hole program.
    Core splitting and sampling is underway. Early sample batches will be
transported to the assayers within the next few days and preliminary results
can be expected within two weeks.
    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.
    It is anticipated that each of the mineralized zones can be augmented as
to its current resources. For the spatial and geographical relationships of
the mineralization reference should be made to the maps and diagrams made in
the Company's news release made on November 13, 2007 and can be viewed at
