Mawson West Limited: Kapulo Project Mineral Resource Update

Highlights:

PERTH, AUSTRALIA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/22/14 -- Mawson West Limited (TSX: MWE) ("Mawson West" or "the Company") is pleased to provide updated estimates of the Mineral Resources at the Company's Kapulo copper project in the Democratic Republic of Congo ("DRC").

Mawson West Chief Executive Bruce McFadzean said:

"The 2011 Kapulo feasibility study relied upon Mineral Reserves from the Shaba deposit only; the Safari North and Safari South deposits required further drilling at that time. Infill drilling has now enabled us to upgrade the confidence categories of Mineral Resource estimates at all the Kapulo deposits. We look forward to completing an economic analysis and reporting Mineral Reserves late this quarter."

Overview

Kapulo comprises three outcropping copper deposits, Shaba, Safari North and Safari South (Figure 1). The deposits feature high-grade hydrothermal copper mineralisation associated with the Kapulo Fault.

Drilling programs completed in 2013 were designed to upgrade the confidence categories of resource estimates at all three deposits and obtain core samples for further metallurgical test work, particularly at Safari North. The improved knowledge will, after economic analysis, permit a more robust estimate of Mineral Reserves at Shaba deposit and maiden estimates of Mineral Reserves at Safari. The 2013 programs to early November totalled 9,044 metres in reverse circulation (RC) holes and 7,486 metres in 58 diamond core holes (including 2,019 metres in RC pre-collars).

The additional assay data now available, along with updated geological interpretations, have been utilized by Perth-based MPR Geological Consultants Pty Ltd to generate updated resource models for all three deposits. The resulting Mineral Resources are reported after applying depth and cut-off grade constraints that the Company considers comply with the "reasonable prospect of economic extraction" test required by National Instrument 43-101.

Applying 0.7% Cu cut-off grade, resources that have potential for extraction by open pit mining in the three deposits total:


--  4.96 Million tonnes @ 3.16% Cu for 157,000 tonnes contained copper in
    Measured Resources;
--  1.27 Million tonnes @ 2.48% Cu for 31,500 tonnes contained copper in
    Indicated Resources;
--  Total 6.23 Million tonnes @ 3.02% Cu for 188,000 tonnes contained copper
    in Measured and Indicated Resources, and
--  2.87 Million tonnes @ 2.0% Cu for 56,000t contained Cu in Inferred
    Resources.

Table 1 summarises the updated Mineral Resource estimates.

Relative to previous estimates, the new resource models more reliably delineate and estimate high grade zones in each of the deposits. The updated resource models will form the basis for new Mineral Reserve estimates, mining schedules and financial modelling to be undertaken in Q1 2014.

Each of the deposits remains open down-plunge and future exploration efforts will be directed toward drill testing depth extensions and evaluating other targets along strike on the Kapulo Fault.

Shaba Deposit

Shaba is a tabular deposit extending over a strike length of 460 metres and dipping westerly at approximately 60 degrees (Figure 2). Mineralisation averages 30 metres true width, reaching up to 65 metres true width, and plunges to the south in the plane of the lode. The deposit contains a distinct, high-grade hangingwall zone with copper grades commonly exceeding six per cent that offers potential to accelerate metal production in the early years of mine life.

Drilling has tested Shaba to a maximum depth of about 350 metres below surface where mineralisation remains open down-plunge. Preliminary pit optimisations indicate that resources above approximately 270 metres depth (900mRL) have potential for economic extraction and the economic cut-off grade is likely to be in the range 0.5-1.0% Cu.

Shaba estimated resources are listed in Table 2 and Figure 3 shows a long-section view of the resource block model.

Safari North Deposit

Drilling has now confirmed that mineralisation is continuous between Safari North and South deposits but Safari North can be distinguished as hosting higher tenor grades and has been drilled to greater depth. The two deposits have been treated separately for the purposes of resource estimation.

The Safari North deposit extends over 430 metres strike length, with mineralisation ranging between 10 and 45 metres true width and dipping at 50 degrees to the west (Figure 4). A high-grade and thicker core to the lode plunges to the south. Drill coverage extends to a maximum 180 metres below surface and mineralisation remains open at that depth. Preliminary pit optimisations indicate that resources above approximately 200 metres depth (1000mRL) have potential for economic extraction and the economic cut-off grade is likely to be in the range of 0.5-1.0% Cu.

Safari North estimated resources are listed in Table 3 and Figure 5 shows a long-section view of the resource model.

Safari South Deposit

Safari South mineralisation extends over 460 metres strike length with true widths up to 45 metres and averaging 23 metres. It is a tabular deposit of generally lower tenor than Safari North, although drill coverage generally extends to only about 65 metres vertical depth at present. Figure 6 shows a cross-section through Safari South and Figure 7 shows a long-section view of the resource model. With the model extending to a maximum depth of only about 70 metres vertical depth (1120mRL) it is considered that the entire resource may potentially be economically extractable and thus no depth constraint has been applied.

Comparisons to Previous Estimates

Previous Mineral Resource estimates by Coffey Mining Ltd in June 2011 are tabulated in Appendix A.

The updated Mineral Resources reported in this release are not directly comparable with previous estimates because they cover different geographic extents. They are informed by an additional 16,530 metres of combined RC and diamond core drilling and have been reported using modified depth constraints and cut-off grades that, in the Company's view, reflect reasonable economic constraints.

Previous resource estimates have included estimated silver grades. Samples from Mawson's 2013 drilling were assayed at SGS's Dikulushi laboratory using a technique with a lower detection limit for silver of 5ppm. Whilst adequate for the much higher silver grades encountered at Dikulushi, the precision of those assays is not sufficient to permit reliable estimates of the lower silver grades in the Kapulo deposits. The updated Mineral Resource estimate at Kapulo therefore does not include silver content.

Resource Estimate Technical Notes:

For each deposit:


--  Reliability of assay data was checked by examining assays of reference
    materials, blanks and duplicate samples and records of sample
    recoveries;
--  Drill hole location and survey data were checked for spatial integrity;
--  Drill hole assay data were composited to uniform one metre down-hole
    lengths;
--  Assay composites were domained using wireframes of mineralisation
    capturing zones of continuous mineralisation grading greater than
    nominally 0.2% Cu, guided by geological logging;
--  Assay composites were also domained using triangulated surfaces
    representing weathering boundaries;
--  Univariate statistics of copper grade populations in each of the
    (sub)domains were examined and top cuts selected to limit the influence
    of extreme grades;
--  Copper grades were estimated for blocks with dimensions 10mN x 5mE x
    5mRL using Ordinary Kriging with only assay composites of the
    mineralised domains informing the estimates;
--  Block grade estimates were checked against informing data for global and
    conditional bias and for spatial correlation;
--  Bulk densities derived by water immersion method of drill core were
    examined for each of the weathering domains and linearly correlated with
    copper grades to derive grade-density functions. Those functions were
    used to estimate bulk densities applied to each of the model blocks;
--  At 0.7% Cu cut-off, densities average 2.54 t/bcm for the combined
    Measured and Indicated resources and 2.53 t/bcm for the Inferred
    resources;
--  Block factors, reflecting the proportion of each block lying inside the
    constraining mineralisation wireframe and below the surveyed topographic
    surface, were applied to calculate tonnage estimates;
--  Resource blocks were assigned confidence categories based on the number
    of data informing each block estimate and the spacing and geometric
    distribution of those data;
--  For Safari deposit, estimates informed by consistently 20 x 20 metre or
    closer spaced drilling are classified as Measured and estimates informed
    by drill spacings between 20 x 20 and 40 x 40 metres are classified as
    Indicated. Estimates for areas of broader spaced drilling or at the
    peripheries of drill coverage are assigned to the Inferred category;
--  For Shaba deposit, estimates informed by consistently 30 x 30 metre or
    closer spaced drilling are classified as Measured and estimates informed
    by drill spacings between 30 x 30 and 40 x 40 metres are classified as
    Indicated. Estimates for areas of broader spaced drilling or at the
    peripheries of drill coverage are assigned to the Inferred category.
