Oxus Mining Plc

Further re Financing

Oxus Mining Plc
15 January 2003


Oxus Mining plc ('Oxus') (OXS.L) is pleased to announce that on 14 January 2003
it appointed Standard Bank London Limited ('Standard Bank') and WestLB AG ('West
LB') to act jointly as exclusive lead arrangers and underwriters in respect of a
project finance facility of up to US$30 million.  The facility will be used to
fund the development of the Amantaytau Goldfields Phase 1 (Oxides) Project in

The facility is conditional upon underwriting and the satisfaction of certain
conditions precedent.  Assuming these conditions precedent are met, drawdown is
expected to take place in March 2003.

Amantaytau Phase 1, a 1 million ounce open pit gold project, is Oxus' most
advanced project.  It is located within the 192 square kilometre licence area of
Amantaytau Goldfields, a 50/50 joint venture between Oxus and the Uzbek
Government, just 30 kilometres from Muruntau, one of the world's largest open
pit gold mines.

It was originally proposed that the project would be developed using Heap Leach
technology.  However, Oxus has revised its development strategy and it is now
proposed to utilise contract mining with processing through a conventional
milling and Carbon-In-Pulp (CIP) treatment plant.  The revised strategy will
ensure that the capital expenditure required for the development of the project
will fall within the US$30 million being arranged by Standard Bank and West LB
and will significantly increase gold recoveries.

The design and construction of the plant has already commenced and the first
gold pour is scheduled for the last quarter of this year.  The feasibility on
the Amantaytau Phase 2 (Sulphides) Project will start shortly and this project
is expected to produce an additional 2.03 million ounces over 10 years.
