PHI Mining Group to Change Name to PHI Gold Corporation and Spin Off Business Unit

LOS ANGELES, CA and FRANKFURT, GERMANY--(Marketwire - December 7, 2010) - PHI Mining Group, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: PHIG) (FRANKFURT: RPBA), a majority owned subsidiary of PHI Group, Inc. (OTCBB: PHIE) (FRANKFURT: PR7) (XETRA: PR7), announced today that the company will change its name to PHI Gold Corporation to reflect its sole focus on gold mining. The company will spin off Indochina Mining Corp. as a separate entity engaged in industrial minerals.

PHI Gold Corporation will use the recently acquired Maisy Mae Creek gold mine in the Yukon Territory, Canada as a platform for additional acquisitions of other gold mines. The company currently has made three offers on mines similar to Maisy Mae and is investigating other gold ore properties in the U.S. and Asia.

As part of the restructuring plan, PHI Mining will declare a special dividend of Indochina Mining Corp. stock to shareholders of PHI Mining and register Indochina Mining as a separate public company. Indochina Mining will concentrate on non-gold and other industrial mineral properties.

PHI Gold Corporation will continue to complete the audits of its financial statements and file the required reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission to regain its full reporting status on the OTCBB and upgrade to a senior exchange in the future when appropriate.

Currently PHI Mining Group has 200 million authorized shares, of which 22,424,628 shares are issued and outstanding and 1,428,286 are free trading. PHI Mining does not intend to issue new shares for these contemplated acquisitions. The Company expects to complete the name change and declare the special dividend by December 31, 2010.

Henry Fahman, Chairman of PHI Mining Group, said, "We believe that by making these changes we will be able to create greater value for our shareholders. We look forward to providing further updates on the company in the coming weeks."

  • August 12th PR--Haiti Precious metals mining>
  • A geological study of the northeastern section of Haiti situated along the margin of the Caribbean plate reveals the presence of copper and gold porphyry deposits. This geological environment in Haiti, which hosts numerous gold and copper occurrences, is similar to the Pueblo Viejo deposit in the adjacent Dominican Republic. According to reports from Barrick Gold Corporation (,[/u] Pueblo Viejo has 215 million tons of proven and probable reserves containing 20.4 million ounces of gold, 117.3 million ounces of silver, and 423.5 million pounds of copper, as of the close of 2007. In contrast, Haiti's mineral potential has yet to be fully explored.
  • The VCS-PHI Joint Venture will initially focus on further exploration in selected locations that are expected to show significant mineralized deposits, the northeastern and southeastern areas of Haiti. We will release more information as we complete the exploratory work on this project.
  • Angelo Viard, Chairman and CEO of VCS Mining, commented: "We are very excited about these opportunities in Haiti, especially the selected locations we identified in the northeastern and southeastern parts of the country.
