GobiMin Signs Supplemental Agreement on Disposal of Yanxi Copper Deposit

Toronto, Canada. August 30, 2011 - (TSXV: GMN) GobiMin Inc. ("GobiMin" or the "Company") announces that further to the press release published on January 4, 2011, it has entered into a second supplemental agreement (the "Supplemental Agreement") with China Daye Non-Ferrous Metals Mining Limited ("China Daye") for a further extension of the deadline for obtaining the Yanxi Mining Licence in connection with the disposal of the Yanxi Copper Deposit completed in July 2010.

Due to the tightened policy for license applications in China, additional time is required to finalize the application for the Yanxi Mining Licence and the exploration licence for the adjacent New Area.

  1. The deadline for obtaining the Yanxi Mining Licence and the exploration licence of the New Area are extended from August 31, 2011 to January 31, 2012.
  2. At the discretion of China Daye, either:
    1. the repayment date from China Daye of the outstanding principal of the CB is extended from July 22, 2012 to June 30, 2013, without extension of the period of the related rights of conversion; or
    2. subject to approval of The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited and shareholders of China Daye (if necessary), the maturity date of the CB is extended from July 22, 2012 to June 30, 2013, including the deadline for conversion.
