AIM:EMED TSX:EMD Presentation 19 December 2012 at General Meeting of Shareholders, Minas de Riotinto, Spain www.emed-mining.com
FORWARD LOOKING STATEMENTS 2 This Presentation contains “forward looking information” which may include, but is not limited to, statements with respect to the future financial or operating performance of the Company, its subsidiaries and its projects, the future price of metals, the estimation of ore reserves and resources, the conversion of estimated resources into reserves, the realization of ore reserve estimates, the timing and amount of estimated future production, costs of production, capital, operating and exploration expenditures, costs and timing of the development of new deposits, costs and timing of future exploration, requirements for additional capital, government regulation of mining operations, environmental risks, reclamation expenses, title disputes or claims, limitations of insurance coverage and the timing and possible outcome of pending litigation and regulatory matters. Often, but not always, forward looking statements can be identified by the use of words such as “plans”, “expects”, “is expected”, “budget”, “scheduled”, “estimates”, “forecasts”, “intends”, “anticipates” or “does not anticipate”, or “believes” or variations (including negative variations) of such words and phrases, or state that certain actions, events or results “may”, “could”, “would”, “might” or “will” be taken, occur or be achieved. Accordingly, readers should not place undue reliance on forward looking statements. Forward looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which may cause the actual results, performance or achievements of the Company and/or its subsidiaries to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the forward looking statements. Such factors include, among others, general business, economic, competitive, political and social uncertainties; the actual results of current exploration activities; actual results of reclamation activities; conclusions of economic evaluations; changes in project parameters as plans continue to be refined; future prices of metals; the future costs of capital to the company; possible variations of ore grade or recovery rates; failure of plant, equipment or processes to operate as anticipated; accidents, labour disputes and other risks of the mining industry; political instability, terrorist attacks, insurrection or war; delays in obtaining governmental approvals or financing or in the completion of development or construction activities, as well as those factors discussed in the section entitled “Risk Factors” in this Presentation. Although the Company has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual actions, events or results to differ materially from those described in forward looking statements, there may be other factors that cause actions, events or results to differ from those anticipated, estimated or intended. Forward looking statements contained herein are made as of the date of this Presentation and the Company disclaims any obligation to update any forward looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or results or otherwise. There can be no assurance that forward looking statements will prove to be accurate, as actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements. Accordingly, readers should not place undue reliance on forward looking statements. Sources for technical information and financial forecasts (except where noted) in this presentation are the “Amended and Restated NI43-101 Technical Report on Reopening the Rio Tinto Copper Mine Huelva Province, Spain” and the “Amended and Restated NI43-101 Technical Report on Biely Vrch Gold Deposit, Detva Licence Area in Slovakia”. Both of these reports are dated 17 November 2010. Mr Ron Cunneen, BSc (Geology), Head of Exploration for EMED Mining, a qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101, supervised the preparation of the scientific and technical information in this presentation.
SHAREHOLDERS SUMMARY OF STATUS 3 Market Cap vs NPV Market cap US$215M (£134M), NPV US$300-1,300M at $3.00-4.00/lb Cu NPV is only the base and target case of the first mine restart at Riotinto Inflection Points in Spain Engineering: have completed costing and scheduling Financing: have mandated Goldman Sachs; arranged Xiangguang and Red Kite; and have triggered independent expert for financing All project trigger permits are being processed for approval together, to reduce risk of further delays. Expected sequence is as follows: H1-13: Administrative Standing Mineral Rights + Environmental Plans Restoration Plan and Project (Exploitation Rights) H2-13: project works commence Team in Place Shareholders, financiers, board, senior management Supportive mining communities, local contractors and consultants EMED Mining also has first-class local & international specialist advisers Solid Platform and Pipeline of Growth Projects Robust Base Case for near term start of cash flow Potential brownfields copper mines next to main mine in Spain Exploration potential at gold deposit discovered in Slovakia, which has just received initial approval of Mining Lease Area
ONE OF BEST PERFORMING COPPER SECTOR SHARES OVER PAST TWO YEARS Relative Share Performance Since Dec. 17, 2010 – Copper Developers and Producers The sector performed poorly in 2011 and 2012 in stock market terms. EMED has outperformed the majority of TSX and TSXV listed copper exploration, development and producing companies since the TSX IPO in December 2010 Source: Capital IQ, as of 28 November 2012

RIO TINTO: WORLD’S LARGEST VMS SYSTEM 100% ownership of assets, including the Cerro Colorado open pit and other mines, processing facilities and all project lands Last operated in 2001 and was put on care and maintenance due to then-prevailing low Cu prices Excellent infrastructure in place: –Access to towns, roads, port, power & water –Only 75 km from Freeport McMoRan’s Atlantic Cu smelter 8 SPAIN Rio Tinto SPAIN
“GROWTH AGENDA” TASKS FOR 2013, SO AS TO RE-ESTABLISH RIO TINTO AS A MINING DISTRICT Cerro Colorado Pit, initial target increase reserves - 600Kt to 900Kt Cu Drilling programs to commence 2013. No past drilling below 250 meters & open Concentrator, increase output – 37Ktpa Cu (9Mtpa) to 60Ktpa Cu (15Mtpa) Engineering studies to commence 2013. Some plant capacity already 15Mtpa Tailings Treatment, target reduced enviro impact and increased capacity Engineering studies to commence 2013. Optimise tailings thickening/deposition San Dionisio Underground Mine, evaluate this adjacent high grade deposit Validate and interpret database under today’s standards and economics San Antonio Underground Mine, evaluate this adjacent high grade deposit Validate and interpret database under today’s standards and economics Tailings Reprocessing Joint Venture, evaluate treatment of precious metal Metallurgical testing and engineering programs to commence 2013 9 Rio Tinto is the world’s largest VMS system.
