    compared to results for the same period in 2006

    - Revenue generated from the sale of gold and tungsten is $6,749,432 in
      Q2 2007, compared to $2,083,327 in Q2 2006. The gross margin deriving
      from gold and tungsten sales increased from $248,508 in Q2 2006 to
      $1,311,010 in Q2 2007. This significant increase is largely due to the
      beginning of commercial production at the Pasto Bueno tungsten mine on
      April 1, 2007.
    - Tungsten production recorded in Q2 2007 was 15 044 MTU's. The average
      sale price per MTU of tungsten was US$176. Cash operating cost per MTU
      was US$111. Revenue generated from the sale of Tungsten during Q2 2007
      was $3,047,394. The gross for margin deriving from tungsten production
      for Q2 2007 was $942,946. The average production rate for the
      three-month period was 210 tonnes/day, as the full capacity rate of
      250 tonnes was attained during the month of June.
    - Gold production, deriving from custom milling, at the Acari plant,
      increased to 5 134 ounces in Q2 2007, compared to 3 065 ounces in
      Q2 2006. The average sale price was US$655 per ounce in Q2 2007,
      compared to US$592 for the same period in 2006. Operating cost per
      ounce of gold was US$590 in Q2 2007, compared to US$536 in Q2 2006. The
      gross margin deriving from gold production for Q2 2007 was $368,064 as
      compared to $248,508 for the same period in 2006. The increase in the
      gross margin is directly related to the increase in production volume
      as well as the increase in the price of gold.
    - The Company recorded a net loss of $459,145 compared to $952,771 for
      the same period in 2006. The improvement is attributed mainly to an
      increase in gold sales and attainment of commercial operating capacity
      at the Pasto Bueno tungsten mine. The Company expects further
      improvement into the second half of 2007, as the full production
      capacity at the tungsten mine will continue to be maintained and
      moreover, increased.
    - Working capital at June 30, 2007 was $4,322,683 compared to a working
      capital of $3,003,895 on December 31, 2006.


    Since the announcement, by way of press release on July 11, 2007,
tungsten production at the Pasto Bueno mine continues to operate at full
capacity levels of 250 tonnes/day. These levels were maintained throughout the
months of June and July, and will continue to be maintained in future months.
The Company is currently working on upgrading the mill, in order to reach a
level of 300 tonnes/day by Q4 2007. Also the Company expects to be connected
to the Peruvian National Electric grid by Q4 2007, which will greatly reduce
the operating cost per MTU, therefore increasing substantially the gross


    Malaga is working diligently toward the spin-off of its gold assets into
a new public company, namely Dynacor Gold Mines Inc. The new company will hold
all of the gold assets including the Acari mill, from which gold is produced
through custom milling, as well as the Casaden and Tumipampa properties.
    Malaga expects the filing of the preliminary prospectus of Dynacor Gold
Mines to be completed within the next upcoming days. The spin-off of its gold
assets to Dynacor Gold Mines is expected to be completed soon thereafter. A
follow-up press release will then be issued announcing the declaration of a
stock dividend and the distribution date for the distribution of the shares of
Dynacor Gold Mines to the shareholders of Malaga.
