Endomines AB Press Release, Summary of interim report January - March 2010

Wednesday, 12. May 2010 08:55
Investments and construction of Pampalo Gold Mine is proceeding according to the
plan and budget.


Summary of events

Sales agreement for gold concentrate signed with Boliden.

Mining contracts for the Pampalo Gold Mine signed.

The results from a diamond core drilling campaign at the Pampalo underground
gold mine support the production start-up schedule for production at the mine.
Test production will start at the end of 2010, and full-scale production in the
first quarter of 2011.

Recently completed infill drilling campaign brought out some new ore grade
intersections outside the earlier known main lenses.

Training program for process operators for the Pampalo Gold Mine was started in
January.

The first day of trading in Endomines warrants on NASDAQ OMX First North was
January 13, 2010. Trading in warrants will continue until December 10, 2010.

New ore reserve estimation will commence in May 2010, based on the significantly
improved gold price compared with the earlier estimate published in May 2009.


Gold Market outlook

We expect gold prices to remain high over the medium term. Recently, gold has
seen strong gains, benefitting from the uncertainties affecting the eurozone and
continued investor demand for safe haven investments.  Endomines is
well-positioned in the current markets, as its gold price hedge (contracted in
December 2009, and covering 50% of its future production) will protect the
company from expected continuing market volatility.

The 50% hedge nevertheless leaves scope to gain from the strong dollar price of
gold and the weak Euro, as Endomines' operating costs are in Euros and its
production sold in dollars.

Summary of key financial figures for January-March 2010 (2009)

* Earnings per share -0.12 SEK (-0.09)
* Investments 40,973 KSEK (6,120)
* Total Cash Flow -43,011 KSEK (-9,662)
