The Company has been advised that on March 15, 2013, Nevsun will be
removed from Van Eck's proprietary Market Vectors Junior Gold Miners
index because Nevsun's revenue will switch to majority copper from
majority gold during 2013. Nevsun has been advised that the Van Eck
Junior Gold Miners ETF is required to sell its position in Nevsun
since the ETF tracks the index. 
As previously disclosed, Nevsun expects to produce 80 to 90 thousand
ounces of gold in the first half of 2013, followed by 60 to 80
million pounds of copper in the last half of 2013. Production in 2014
is expected to be approximately 200 million pounds of copper at top
quartile cash costs, generating strong anticipated earnings and cash
