First Uranium Resumes Mining Operations at Ezulwini Mine

First Uranium Corporation has announced that the notice suspending operations in the underground workplaces issued pursuant to section 54 of the Mine Health and Safety Act (South Africa) by the Department of Mineral Resources (DMR) on November 16, 2010, has been lifted.

The notice was issued in connection with a fall of ground which claimed the life of one employee.

Accordingly, mining operations at Ezulwini Mine will resume tonight.

Deon van der Mescht, President and Chief Executive Officer of First Uranium said: "Following an assessment by the DMR yesterday, the notice was lifted earlier today on the condition that each panel is declared safe before blasting may resume. We are satisfied that we fully understand the cause of the accident and have increased training and awareness initiatives around standard safety procedures in unsupported areas."
