+++++++++++++++++++++++++
At approximately 8-00pm last night a charter flight from Perth to the
Sons of Gwalia Mine at Leonora met with some difficulties and did not
land as scheduled. For some reason it continued flying to Northern
Queensland. It has since been confirmed the plane came down south of
Bourketown.

It is with great regret we confirm there were seven of our colleagues
who worked at Leonora and the charter pilot on the flight. It has
been confirmed that there were no survivors.

The appropriate State and Federal authorities are on site and the
Company will continue to provide all relevant assistance and support
to the families of the deceased and our staff at Leonora and Perth.

EXECUTIVE CHAIRMAN
