Codelco Exercises Right of First Refusal Over Jeronimo Interest

 Toronto, September 11, 2006 - BacTech Mining Corporation ("BacTech" or the "Company") reports that their partner, Intrepid Mines Limited ("Intrepid"), has received notification from Codelco that it is proceeding to exercise its right of first refusal on the Jeronimo gold project in Chile, and has now acquired 100% of the property. As a consequence, the Intrepid and BacTech partnership will not proceed to acquire Goldcorp's interest in this project.

Given the refractory nature of Jeronimo, BacTech will continue to pursue discussions with Codelco to obtain a direct interest in Jeronimo.

BacTech continues to evaluate projects that are amenable to its BACOX technology. At present, the Company has four projects under review.


BacTech has developed and patented bacterial oxidation technology for the treatment of refractory ores and concentrates to enhance the recovery of gold, silver and base metals. BacTech has successfully commissioned three bioleach plants for gold and demonstrated its technology in the selective recovery of base metals from complex sulphide concentrates in a joint project with Industrias Peñoles de C.V. of Mexico. The Company's focus is the acquisition of equity positions in projects amenable to bioleaching.
