Oxus Completes Drilling Programme at Khandiza
Resource Updated

Oxus Mining plc (Oxus) (OXS.L), after the completion of an additional 31 hole
diamond drilling programme, has restated the base metal 'measured and
indicated' resources of its zinc-silver-gold-copper-lead deposit at Khandiza
in Uzbekistan.

The additional drilling data has been combined with the results of some
77,000 metres of drilling completed in 1974 during Soviet exploration as well
as channel and bulk sampling from 23 kilometres of underground exploration
workings. By increasing the cut-off grade from 4%, as used in the preliminary
feasibility study, to 5% zinc there is a significant increase in the grades
of zinc, lead, copper and silver but a decreased resource tonnage. The
potential for a smaller higher-grade mine at a lower capital cost will now be
evaluated. However, the funding and development of the Amantaytau gold
project remains as the Company's only short-term construction and development

The new resources have been independently audited by CSMA Consultants Limited
(CSMA) and are summarised below and compared to the previous resources used
in the September 1998 preliminary feasibility study:

                    Tonnes     Zinc    Lead        Copper        Silver   Gold

Khandiza is included in a 6,000 square kilometre exploration area which is
part of a major base metal and gold province on the southern margin of the
Tien Shan Gold Belt in Uzbekistan. The proposed mining licence area around
Khandiza covers an area of 145 square kilometres within which there are a
further 10 known base metal exploration targets. CSMA states that there is
'potential to significantly increase the Khandiza resource base'.

The following drill hole intersections are the most significant in the 31
hole drill programme at Khandiza:
