Callinan to Appeal Order of the Manitoba Court of Queen's Bench

Oct 20, 2010, 13:08 ET from Callinan Mines Ltd.

VANCOUVER, Oct. 20 /PRNewswire/ - A Master of the Manitoba Court of Queens Bench has decided not to order HuBay's auditors, Deloitte to produce its working papers to Callinan because production was premature. Callinan believes the Master erred and will be proceeding with an appeal of this order while simultaneously pursuing its audit of the documents provided to date by HudBay.

It is Callinan's claim that HudBay Minerals has improperly calculated payments due to Callinan under its Net Profits Interest concerning HudBay's Callinan and 777 Mines, and has failed to make payments due to Callinan under the Net Profits Interest.

Callinan remains committed to gaining transparency in the matter of the accounting of its Net Profits Interest in the past and present and for the future.

On Behalf of the Board of Directors,
