Occupational Safety and Health Administration Dismisses Dr. Cynthia Kuper's Complaint Against Micromem

    TORONTO, Aug. 5 /CNW/ - Micromem Technologies Inc. (OTC BB: MMTIF)
announced that the U.S. Department of Labor Occupational Safety and Health
Administration ("OSHA") has dismissed the complaint by Dr. Cynthia Kuper
against the Company dated February 11, 2008.
    Following an investigation of this matter by a duly authorized
investigator, the Secretary of Labor, acting through her agent, the Regional
Administrator for OSHA, Region III, found that there is no reasonable cause to
believe that Micromem violated the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, as Dr. Kuper
had alleged.
    Both parties involved have 30 days from the receipt of OSHA's findings
(August 13, 2008) to file objections and to request a hearing before an
Administrative Law Judge (ALJ). If no objections are filed, OSHA's findings
will become final and not subject to court review.
