The Company announced that Ms. Grace Sarendatu has been appointed to the Board of Directors.  Ms. Sarendatu is a lawyer and notary with over 30 years of experience operating a legal and notarial practice in Minahasa Regency of Sulawesi Province in the Republic of Indonesia.  Ms. Sarendatu graduated with a Bachelor of Law degree from the University of Dibonegoro in Java, Indonesia, prior to establishing her practice in the city of Manado.  She has been active in coordinating and orchestrating both merger, acquisition and licensing/concession transactions, particularly in the mining industry in both Sulawesi and Kalimantan provinces of Indonesia. In the course of her notarial and legal activities, Ms. Sarendatu has built up a strong relationship network, particularly within local and regional governments, which has served her notarial and legal clients well.  Since it began operations in Indonesia, Ms. Sarendatu has provided both legal and notary services to the Company.

Nils Ollquist Borneo's Chief Executive Officer commented, "The successful completion of these transactions is a significant milestone for Borneo.  For the first time, the Company is in a position to report revenues from operations, which we expect to do this quarter.  The acquisition of Kalabat provides a platform for the Company to expand our precious metals project portfolio and reaffirms our plans to the expansion of our activities in the region." 

Mr. Ollquist continued, "Grace Sarendatu has been a member of our team since we first began doing business in Indonesia.  By her joining of our Board we are communicating our commitment to the Indonesian business community and further strengthen our relationships in the region." 

Further, Mr. Ollquist said, "Although our primary focus over approximately the last six months has been on aggressively pursuing the opportunities on the gold projects, we have not reduced our commitment to coal.  We are in the process of documenting the extension of the concessions for the coal properties currently in our portfolio, seeking additional concessions, and we are actively pursuing coal trading transactions."

In closing, Mr. Ollquist stated, "This is an exciting time for the Company and its shareholders.  We have worked hard to develop a natural resource portfolio that not only has significant value but also will generate revenue and profit.  As we have in the past the Company believes that it will continue to meet its financial commitments and we continue our evaluation of financing proposals that will meet the future needs of the Company.  We look forward to sharing the results of our efforts as we continue to expand our activities and grow the company."

About The Company

Borneo Resource Investments Ltd. is an aggregator of proven precious metal and natural resource concession assets in the Republic of Indonesia.

Borneo's current natural resource portfolio includes two gold projects and a concession for high quality thermal coal. The first gold project is producing while the other is non-producing. Borneo also trades precious metals and thermal coal between Indonesian domestic groups and international buyers.
