A Heart to Heart Interview with Managing Director & General Manager Mr. Geng Yiskynet1

Q: First of all we would like to know about how Wanbao acquired the NO. 1 Copper Mine Project in Myanmar.

A: You would like to know the history?

Q: Yes, how was it that Myanmar Wanbao Company obtained the license for this project?

A: Ok. I would like to begin by thanking Sky Net for giving the company, and for allowing myself, this opportunity to introduce some information about the project. So for your first question, I would like to explain a little bit about the history of the project. Actually, from 2007 until 2010, for nearly four years, we were engaged in acquiring the project from its previous developer. This is the Canadian Mining Corporation of Ivanhoe. During these four years we were negotiating with both the Government and the previous shareholders regarding the acquisition of the Monywa Copper Mine Project. Actually we were not the only one negotiating for this mine. There were competitors from Korea, Russia, and also from other Chinese companies. The final decision for Wanbao to attain the project was awarded because we offered the most favourable conditions for the previous shareholders, as well as for the Government, and we won. We can say that… we won the competition finally in 2010. And that is the history.
