Correction - Geochemical results from Piaui drill target at Palito - results table amended

February 22, 2011 - London

("Serabi" or "the Company")






Serabi Mining plc, the AIM-traded gold exploration company, is pleased to release results of further geochemical work performed around the Piaui drill target at Palito.


Initial trenching work has been undertaken over the prospect and first assays results reported by Eco Tech Laboratory in Vancouver, Canada have been received.Trench TC052 was excavated over a length of 237 metres, with a maximum depth of 5 metres and perpendicular to the strike of the anomaly and encountered a near-surface intersection of an area of brecciated quartz veining and weathered sulphide material.(A location map is appended to this release)


Assays of material taken from the trench returned assays as set out below:

The Piaui anomaly is currently being drilled and is the first of nine targets that will be drilled in the Company's initial 7,500m discovery drilling programme which commenced late last year. A programme of 8 diamond drill holes has been designed to test the depth extent of these trench intersections and target the centre of the modeled IP chargeability anomaly.


Mike Hodgson, Chief Executive, commented:


"This trenching work is very encouraging and has further enhanced the prospectivity of this robust anomaly at Piaui.


The ground induced polarisation survey that we undertook earlier this year allowed us to create 3-D wireframe models for chargeability, resistivity and conductivity anomalies respectively.Piaui is one of the targets where significant chargeability anomalies were identified of a similar tenor to that of the known Palito Main Zone mineralisation. Further trenching and deep geochemistry programmes are underway and will continue on the remaining prospects, in parallel to the current drilling programme."
