Further to the announcement issued on 4 December 2002, Peter Hambro Mining

set out in the Circular dated 3 December 2002 was passed.

PHM has acquired an additional 22.69% of JSCP's issued share capital, which was
beneficially owned by Pavel Maslovsky, a director of PHM, in consideration for
the issue of 11,144,593 new ordinary shares of 1p nominal value (the

representing 48.65% of PHM's issued share capital.  As a result of this issue,
the percentage holdings in the issued share capital of PHM of Peter Hambro and/
or other holders of Shares in which he is interested (the "Hambro Associates")
