Start of drilling program in Saxony

Tin International Ltd. based in Brisbane, Australia, and its subsidiary Sachsenzinn GmbH, based in Chemnitz, have started confirmatory drillings in both tin deposits in Geyer and Gottesberg (Ore Mountains, Saxony). According to the GDR classification, the deposits together contain a resource of more than 180,000 tons of tin. Combined the deposits therefore form the largest currently known and undeveloped tin deposit worldwide. Due to good cooperation with the authorities and the local population the drilling was prepared within few weeks and began in Geyer yesterday. Drilling in Gottesberg will follow early next week. A total of five drill rigs will be used at the same time.

Completion of the program in Geyer and Gottesberg scheduled for February/Upgrade of existing resource to JORC standard

Heidelberg. Tin International Ltd. based in Brisbane, Australia, and its subsidiary Sachsenzinn GmbH, based in Chemnitz, have started confirmatory drillings in both tin deposits in Geyer and Gottesberg (Ore Mountains, Saxony). According to the GDR classification, the deposits together contain a resource of more than 180,000 tons of tin. Combined the deposits therefore form the largest currently known and undeveloped tin deposit worldwide. Due to good cooperation with the authorities and the local population the drilling was prepared within few weeks and began in Geyer yesterday. Drilling in Gottesberg will follow early next week. A total of five drill rigs will be used at the same time.

The main objective of the drill program is to confirm the results from the 1970s and 1980s. For this purpose, several holes with about 2,400 meters in total are being drilled in both areas. In Gottesberg, two additional drill holes to the confirmatory drilling will be made to increase the accuracy of the resource model. After completion of the program, probably in February 2012, an independent Australian expert will convert the historical resource into an internationally accepted JORC-standard resource.

An IPO of Tin International at the Australian ASX is scheduled for 2012. Deutsche Rohstoff AG is the largest shareholder of Tin International and holds 68% of shares. In September 2011, Tin International completed a first round financing of AUD 4 million (about EUR 3 million) which were raised from international investors, mainly from Australia and Asia.
