This presentation includes ‘Forward-Looking Statements’ as well as historical information. These statements include Simberi’s continued advancement of its mineral exploration, development and production programs. When used in this presentation, the words “potential," "anticipate," "forecast," "believe," "estimate," "expect," "may," "project," "plan" and similar expressions are intended to be among the statements that identify ‘Forward-Looking Statements.

Although Simberi believes that its expectations reflected in these ‘Forward-Looking Statements’ are reasonable, such statements may involve unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors disclosed in our regulatory filings, viewed on the SEDAR website at www.sedar.com.

Although Simberi believes the facts and information contained in the pages of this presentation to be as correct and current as possible, Simberi does not warrant or make any representations as to the accuracy, validity or completeness of any facts or information contained in these pages.

Mineral resources which are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. The estimate of mineral resources may be materially affected by environmental, permitting, legal, title, taxation, sociopolitical, marketing, or other relevant issues. The quantity and grade of reported inferred resources in this estimation are conceptual in nature and there has been insufficient exploration to define an indicated mineral resource on the property and it is uncertain if further exploration will result in discovery of an indicated or measured mineral resource on the property.

Mike Newbury, P.Eng. is the Qualified Person who has reviewed this presentation on behalf of the Company.

    Property update
    Property Update

    • In November 2007 the Commission of the Democratic Republic of the Congo reviewed all foreign mining licenses and acknowledged Simberi’s rights to the Kakanda concessions and the joint venture with Gecamines

    • The Commission has recognized Simberi and prior organizations affiliated with Simberi’s wholly owned subsidiary PTM as having invested in excess of $15 million in exploration and development of the properties and fulfilled their contractual obligations resulting in the bankable feasibility study completed in October 1997 and the more recent 43-101 compliant technical report completed in fall 2006 with an update in May 2008.

    • On December 18, 2008 Gecamines and PTM signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to establish a joint venture Kakanda Mining Development to exploit the Kakanda tailings deposit. The hard rock resources are not included in the MOU but are subject to continuing discussion with Gecamines.

    • Published Resources are 7.7 billion tonnes containing

      • 2.2 million tonnes of uranium

      • 67 million tonnes of copper

      • 79 million ounces of gold

      • Olympic Dam globally is the World’s:

      • Largest Uranium Deposit

      • Fifth Largest Gold Deposit

    • “Elephant target for Simberi”


    Lambina simberi 100
    Lambina (Simberi 100%)

    • Identified two high potential geophysical anomalies:

      • Anomaly LB-02

        • Peak reading of 4 mGal.

        • Shallow, near surface in part.

        • 6 km long and about 1 km wide and it is interpreted to be more than 2.5 km thick

      • Anomaly LB-03

        • Peak reading of 6 mGal.

        • Shallow, interpreted depth is less than 200 metres.

        • 5 km long and 1.5 km wide with a thickness of about 5.5 km.

      • Aboriginal Work Clearance Survey

        • Completed September 2007,

        • received departmental approval (November 2007), to drill these two anomalies.

    Lambina Option with Raisama

    Agreed to sell Lambina to Raisama for A$1,000,000 in stock.

    Raisama is a new corporation preparing a listing on the ASX.

    Holds a number of high potential Uranium properties including the Sunday Creek property.

    Sunday Creek property is adjacent to the Kintyre Uranium Project that was recently purchased by Cameco and Mitsubishi for US$500 million.

    Western Australian government has now lifted the uranium development ban and is encouraging new exploration and development. High prospective properties have become difficult to acquire with rising values.

    Mt. Sarah (Simberi 60%)

    • Joint venture with Caldera Resources and Ellendale Resources

    • Simberi can earn up to a 60% interest by:

      • Issuing 1,500,000 common shares

      • Spending CDN$1,250,000 on the property over 3 years

    • Simberi has recently completed Gravity and Magnetic geophysical surveys. The coincident gravity and magnetic anomalies at Mt. Sarah are considered to be of high interest.

    • An Aboriginal Heritage Survey has been completed and the company can now proceed with detailed geophysical surveys to delineate drill targets.

      • Spending CDN$1,250,000 on the property over 3 years

    • Mt. Narlee property has a regional gravity anomaly that requires detailed ground follow up and a Magnetic Geophysical Survey. Simberi will be conducting this work in the near future.

    • An Aboriginal Heritage Survey has been completed and the company can now proceed with detailed geophysical surveys to delineate drill targets.

    Merlot
    Merlot Australia and covers part of the Sefton lineament

    • Potential mineralized targets within the Sefton Lineament at Merlot has been delineated by:

      • Aeromagnetic anomalies and shows a very large zone characterized by linear magnetic features that display a sense of movement.

      • A detailed structural analysis of the internal and external fabric of the rock units in this environment is required. However, the description of the samples taken from a very preliminary reconnaissance drilling programme that several ‘hybrid’ rock types have been detected in this zone containing numerous glass fragments with appreciable levels of Ni and Cr.

      • The portion of the Sefton Lineament at Merlot may contain an ultramafic/mafic greenstone sequence similar to the other major lineaments in the region such as the Ida, Keith-Kilkenny, Celia and Laverton Lineaments immediately to the west that are the host for economic mineral deposits.
