Six Month Interim Statement at 30 September 2006 and Operational Review

Chairman's statement

Result for the period

During the period under review, the Group returned a loss of £98,491 as compared
with a loss of £791,293 in the eighteen-month period to 31 March 2006. As at 30
September 2006 the Company had a cash balance of approximately £ 1,058,993 .

Operational Review

Metallurgical testwork and engineering mine design work has taken place during
the period in the group's Manica gold project in Mozambique. Gold-in-soil and
stream sediment sampling was ongoing at the Bogoin and Dekoa gold projects in
the Central African Republic.

Metallurgical testwork at the Manica project indicated recoveries of 90,12% for
oxide material and 86% for sulphide material. The Company is currently
completing optimisation work to assess the possibility of increasing the
recoveries even further. An independent scoping study on the viability of an
open pit mine at the Manica project on the Fair Bride propsect indicated an
ungeared, pre-tax and royalty NPV of US$39 million and an IRR of 31%.
Optimisation work is currently underway on capital and working cost estimates.
Furthermore the results from a recent bulk sampling programme at the Fair Bride
prospect indicate a significantly higher sulphide grade of 3.73g/t insitu as
opposed to a resource estimated sulphide grade 2.61g/t in situ used in the mine
engineering scoping study. This is an increase of 1.12g/t and could
significantly improve the current NPV if validated. Work is currently underway
to produce independent validation of these results after which Turgis will
revisit their evaluation . Drilling is planned to commence in Q1 of 2007 to
validate these results.

In the Central African Republic, the regional gold-in-soil programme at the
Bogoin gold project has been completed and drilling is expected to commence in
Q1 of 2007 to test the 12km gold-in-soil anomaly identified to date. Stream
sediment sampling is underway at the Dekoa gold project.

The company is evaluating other opportunities in a number of African regions and
announcements will be made in due course as appropriate.

Post Interim Period Events

In addition to the above mentioned the Company announced on 20 December that it
has signed a conditional Sale of Shares Agreement with Metorex Limited to
purchase 74% of Barberton Mines Limited in South Africa. The proposed
transaction is intended to provide the Company with a strong production base to
further pursue its exploration and development strategy.

The directors are proactively seeking new opportunities as well as advancing the
Company's existing interests with a view to delivering above normal returns to
shareholders. The directors are confident that the second half year will be as
productive as the first with further positive progress being made in all aspects
of the business.
