 MIL SIGNS MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING WITH MAJOR JAPANESE METALS MANUFACTURER

The Directors of Magnesium International Limited advise that its wholly owned
subsidiary, Magsheet Pty Limited ('MagSheet'), has entered into a Memorandum of
Understanding with a major Japanese metal manufacturer ('the Japanese Company')
for a Cooperative Feasibility Study.

The intention of the Cooperative Feasibility Study is to enable the parties to
make final technical and quality evaluations of MagSheet's magnesium alloy
product, which is produced with MagSheet's TRC technology. The Japanese Company
is targeting computer, communications and consumer electronics manufacturers as
potential customers for MagSheet.

Under the Memorandum of Understanding and subject to the final technical
evaluations, the Japanese Company contemplates distributing products made from
MagSheet's intermediate 3 mm thick twin roll cast ('TRC') AZ31B magnesium alloy
coils to existing and potential customers and undertaking related marketing
activities.

It is the intention of Magsheet and the Japanese Company to discuss licensing
and/or supply agreements for the TRC technology at the completion of the
Cooperative Feasibility Study.

This MOU is an important step in the commercialisation of the TRC technology
that MagSheet has under option from the CSIRO. Magsheet expects that commercial
orders could be placed in 2006 following the Memorandum of Understanding.
