MONTREAL, Nov. 16 /CNW Telbec/ - Malaga Inc. (TSX:MLG) is pleased to report its financial results for the three-month period ended September 30, 2009. The interim consolidated financial statements (all currency figures appear in Canadian dollars unless otherwise specified) along with the management's discussion and analysis are available on the Company's website www.malaga.ca; the documents have been filed with SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

    
    Q3 2009 HIGHLIGHTS

    - Issuance of 9.0M common shares for gross proceeds of $0.9M.
    - Q3 sales revenue of $2.8M ($3.2M in Q3 2008).
    - Q3 sales volume of 15,529 MTUs of tungsten concentrate (15,795 MTUs in
      Q3 2008).
    - Net loss in Q3 of $2.0M ($0.4M in Q3 2008)
    - Tungsten ore grade of 0.84% (0.78% Q3 2008)

    The increase in the net loss in comparison to the second quarter is
principally due to the decrease in the market price of tungsten and the
foreign exchange loss in the amount of $0.3M.
    Management expects that, by the end of November, the production capacity
will reach 325 tons per day and in excess of 500 tons per day by the end of
the first quarter of 2010. At September 30, 2009, the Company has invested
$4.3M on this project.
