Minco plc Announces Results from Recently Completed Twelve Hole, 2,200 Metre, Exploration Drilling Programme in Buchans

Minco plc announced results from its recently completed twelve hole, 2,200 metre, exploration drilling programme in Buchans, central Newfoundland, Canada. The 2015 drilling programme tested several mineralized stratigraphic horizons to depths of less than 300 metres, with all holes located immediately south of Minco's undeveloped Lundberg deposit and approximately 250 m south of the former lucky Strike mine. The drilling programme was undertaken primarily to assess the potential for discovery of new high-grade massive sulphide. Drilling intersected widespread ore clast mineralization within a deeper stratigraphic horizon known as the 'Ore Clast' horizon, below the Lucky Strike mine horizon and lesser explored Engine House horizon. All eight holes designed to test the Ore Clast horizon intersected mineralized felsic volcanic breccia ranging from 1 to 23 metres in thickness, and hosting massive sulphides to sulphide-rich clasts measuring up to 15 centimetres in diameter. Intercepts include 0.5 metres averaging 13.32% combined base metals (I.e., Cu%+Pb%+Zn%) as 1.80% Cu, 5.20% Pb, 6.32% Zn, 53.3 g/t Ag, and 0.18 g/t Au in hole H-15-3493, as well as 1.0 metre averaging 6.16% combined base metals as 0.35% Cu, 1.72% Pb, 4.10% Zn, 63.4 g/t Ag, and 0.27 g/t Au in hole H-15-3497. Transported ores accounted for more than 52% of historic production at Buchans, with head grades reported to have averaged over 20% combined base metals as 1.04% Cu, 7.12% Pb, 12.20% Zn, 124.9 g/t Ag and 1.04 g/t Au. Other notable results from the 2015 drill programme include new intersections of higher grade mineralization extending the Lucky Strike deposit to the south, where Hole H-15-3496 intersected 5.05 m averaging 5.98% combined base metals as 0.20% Cu, 2.15% Pb, 3.63% Zn, 8.9 g/t Ag, and 0.05 g/t Au, including 2.70 m averaging 7.41% combined base metals as 0.23% Cu, 2.74% Pb, 4.44% Zn, 10.1 g/t Ag, 0.06 g/t Au. Further south, additional holes testing the Lucky Strike horizon yielded mineralized intercepts, as hole H-15-3495 intersected 0.94 m assaying 12.04% combined base metals as 0.44% Cu, 3.80% Pb, 7.80% Zn, 88.4 g/t Ag, and 1.62 g/t Au; while hole H-15-3497 intersected 0.5 m averaging 8.23% combined base metals as 0.20% Cu, 3.60% Pb, 4.43% Zn, 32.2 g/t Ag, and 0.29 g/t Au. Two drill holes, H-15-3495 and 15-3496, were drilled to further test high-grade massive sulphide mineralization west and northwest of high-grade massive sulphides previously intersected in hole H-14-3488 (high grade assays further disclosed in Minco Release dated October 28, 2014). Both holes intersected weak mineralization at the Engine House horizon, suggesting the zone may thin and decrease in grade to the west. In light of the positive results from its 2015 drilling, Minco has further expanded its programme of relogging historic drill holes to determine potential for new high-grade discoveries below depths of previous mining near the former Lucky Strike mine.

Minco plc Announces Unaudited Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2015

Minco Plc announced unaudited earnings results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015. For the quarter, the company announced profit of $482,000 compared to a loss of $271,000 for the same period ended March 31, 2014.

Minco plc Reports Operating Results for the Year Ended December 31, 2014

Minco plc reported operating results for the year ended December 31, 2014. During 2014 Minco completed a preliminary economic assessment of its 100% owned Woodstock Manganese Project in New Brunswick, Canada, while continuing exploration drilling on its Buchans zinc-lead project in Newfoundland and at its Pennines zinc-lead project in Northern England. Minco also holds a 20% interest in an Irish prospecting license in joint venture with Tara-Boliden, adjacent to Boliden's large Tara zinc lead mine at Navan, Ireland, and a 2% net smelter royalty in the Curraghinalt gold deposit in Co. Tyrone, Northern Ireland, currently being explored by Dalradian Gold. Minco has four advanced base metal properties in the Buchans area of central Newfoundland, Canada, which contain numerous exploration prospects. During 2014, Minco completed a four hole, 556 metre, exploration drilling program with multiple intersections of massive sulphide mineralization with grades as high as 26.05% combined zinc, copper and lead over 1.45 metres. Minco's 2014 drilling programme was undertaken primarily to assess the potential for discovery of new high-grade massive sulphide, and the results have confirmed that potential which remains open both down-dip to the west and at depth. Positive results were achieved from the 2014 drilling program, including confirming narrow but extensive extensions to the high-grade Lucky Strike deposit as well as extending the Engine House zone at depth to the west, where Minco intersected newly discovered high-grade massive sulphides. Following the positive results of the 2014 drilling, Minco launched an eleven hole, 2,100 metre, exploration drilling programme in April 2015. All holes will target areas where potential exists to discover new high-grade resources. Coming to mineral exploration at northern Pennines, England, between November 2012 and January 2015, Minco drilled a total of 7555 metres in 31 exploration holes, of which 17 successfully intersected mineralisation. Minco's drilling is centered in the vicinity of the village of Nenthead, the most prolific area of past production within the Pennines orefield which covers a total area of 350 square miles. Twenty five holes were sited to explore the Great Limestone horizon and six holes tested the deeper basal geological succession. Minco's drilling has targeted five structures/veins. During 2014, on the Gudhamgill target in Cumbria, Minco drilled a high grade zinc-lead intersection grading 19.55% Zn and 1.93% Pb over 0.40 metres at a depth of 39.60 metres, together with 2.70 metres of zinc mineralisation grading 5.04% Zn at a depth of 91.75 metres, in hole CA-017. A second high-grade zinc intersection grading 10.34%. Zn and 0.97% Pb over 1.00 metres was cut in hole CA-016 associated with narrow breccia hosted `vein' associated with a small hanging-wall fault zone. Hole NW001, which was drilled in late 2014 to explore the Whitewood-Barneycraig-Williams fault/vein structure in Northumberland, intersected three separate mineral sections at relatively shallow depths. In recent drilling, NW002 intersected 8.95 metres of zinc lead mineralisation averaging 3.82% zinc and 1.57% lead, including 5.6m averaging 5.80% zinc plus 2.13% lead, within the Great Limestone. The Barneycraig Fault was intersected at a debt of 230 metres within shales which were mineralised over 1.65 metres with a grade of 9.43% zinc. Above the Great Limestone, the Firestone Sill, a massive sandstone unit, was mineralised over 8.05 metres with a combined zinc/lead grade of 3.41%. The intersection of reasonable widths of lead and zinc mineralization at three different levels in Holes NW001 and NW002 is considered a very positive result and indicates the mineral potential in this large structure which was demonstrated by historic mining to be mineralized over a strike length of 3.5 kilometres. Coming to Woodstock Manganese project, in July 2014, Minco announced the results of the positive Preliminary Economic Assessment ("PEA") of its wholly owned Woodstock electrolytic manganese metal project, located 5 km west of the town of Woodstock and the junction of the Trans Canada and I-95 Highways in west-central New Brunswick, Canada. The PEA's base case indicates a project life of 40 years, based on a 3,000 tonne per day open pit mining, hydrometallurgical and electrowinning operation, with average annual production of approximately 80,000 tonnes (176 million pounds) of electrolytic manganese metal and operating costs anticipated to be the lowest in the world.
