NEWS RELEASE
October 12, 2006 Trading Symbol: TSX: RNG
Amex: RNO
Rio Narcea Announces Increased Mineral Reserve Estimate for its Tasiast Gold Project
Open Pit Gold Ounces Increase by 18%
Toronto, Ontario – Rio Narcea Gold Mines, Ltd. (“Rio Narcea” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce that a revised open pit mineral reserve estimate for its 100% owned Tasiast gold project, located in Mauritania, West Africa has been received by the Company from A.C.A. Howe International Limited, independent mining and geological consultants. The project is currently under construction, with completion expected in the first half of 2007 and first production shortly thereafter.

The new estimate included use of a revised gold price and revised unit cost inputs, which together have increased the mineral reserve. The new diluted open pit mineral reserve is estimated at 1,040,000 ounces of gold contained in 11,984,000 tonnes grading 2.70 g/t. This estimate was based on a gold price of US$491 per ounce of gold. The previous reserve estimate, calculated at a gold price of US$370 per ounce, was 885,000 ounces of gold contained in 8,939,000 tonnes grading 3.08 g/t.

Projected capital expenditures for Tasiast are US$73 million.

“We are delighted to report this increase in our Tasiast mineral reserve to our shareholders and we look forward to the results of the 5,000-meter exploration drilling program we have embarked upon adjacent to the planned pits and below where higher grade mineralization is open at depth. We believe Tasiast holds a great deal of potential and our 16,000 km² land position on one of Africa’s least explored archean greenstone belts should occupy our gold exploration team for quite some time,” said Chris von
Christierson, Chairman and CEO of Rio Narcea.

The total proven and probable mineral reserve is shown in the table below:

Notes: (g/t) stands for grams of gold per tonne. The diluted mineral reserve is estimated based on a projected gold price of US$491.00 per troy ounce and a cut-off of 0.8 gram of gold per tonne as well as 10% dilution where the diluting material is assumed to have a grade of zero grams of gold per tonne, and 95% mining recovery.
The revised mineral reserve estimate dated October 5, 2006 was prepared by Ignacio Vélez Pérez, Mining Engineer for Rio Narcea’s Tasiast Gold Project under the supervision of David A. Orava, M. Eng., P. Eng., Associate Mining Engineer of A.C.A. Howe International Ltd. who is a Qualified Person for the purposes of National Instrument 43-101.

was soll man schon gross schreiben, wenn alles perfekt ist. An der amex bewegt sich der Kurs von Rio Narcea (mit den ueblichen news-Schwankungen) immer schoen nach oben, und seit August/September hat sich auch das Volumen kraeftig erhoeht. Ich bin am 14.10 eingestiegen und siehe da, der Wert hat sich seitdem um 25% erhoeht. Denke mal, dass viele andere auch einfach stillschweigend investiert sind.
Wenn mir etwas an rno auffallen sollte, das mir wichtig erscheint (oder evt. nicht ins pos. Bild passt), stelle ich's zur Diskussion (falls du mich nicht auf ignore hast ;)

(All amounts are reported in U.S. dollars unless otherwise indicated)
Toronto, Ontario – Rio Narcea Gold Mines, Ltd. (“Rio Narcea” or “the Company”) today announced
its results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2006.
Third Quarter Highlights
§ Record net income of $15.6 million after derivative loss of $8.4 million arising from compulsory

Third Quarter Financial Results
For the third quarter ended September 30, 2006, Rio Narcea reported net income of $15.6 million or
$0.10 per share on total revenues of $59.1 million. This compares to a net loss of $9.1 million and $0.06
per share on revenues of $30.1 million in the same period in 2005. Revenues from nickel operations
Page 2/13
totalled $37.3 million for the third quarter of 2006, compared with $11.5 million in the same period of
2005. Revenues from gold operations for the third quarter of 2006 were $21.8 million, of which $13.9
million were sales from Nalunaq ore, compared with $18.6 million, of which $10.1 million was from
Nalunaq ore, during the third quarter of 2005.
Operating cash flow provided by the Aguablanca operation was $23.6 million in the third quarter of 2006,
while consolidated operating cash flow amounted to $18.5 million for the quarter compared to $6.3 million
in the same period of the prior year.
Net income for the third quarter of 2006 includes derivative losses of $8.4 million arising from the effect of
the higher copper and gold prices on the hedging instruments that were required to be entered into by the
Company for the project finance of its Aguablanca and Tasiast projects.
For the nine months ended September 30, 2006, the Company reported net income of $24.1 million or
$0.15 per share on total revenues of $159.8 million. This compares to a net loss of $ 29.8 million or
$0.19 per share on total revenues of $71.4 million for the same period in 2005. Operating cash flow was
positive $35.0 million for the first nine months of 2006, compared with ($2.6) million in the corresponding
period in 2005.
The positive operating cash flow during the first nine months of 2006 was mainly attributable to the
increase in nickel sales from Aguablanca. Cash provided by operating activities before changes in
components of working capital amounted to $54.0 million in the first nine months of 2006, compared to
($1.7) million in the same period of 2005. (a)

We are extremely pleased to report this record net income for the Company. The fact that our operating
cash flow has increased 25% over the previous quarter is not only a function of higher nickel prices, but
also the effectiveness of the technical initiatives we have implemented at Aguablanca,” said Chris von
Christierson, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “We are delighted with the strong revenue
generation from Aguablanca and the progress being made by the construction team at Tasiast.”

Review of Operations
Aguablanca nickel operation
The Company produced 3.4 million pounds of nickel and 3.7 million pounds of copper during the third
quarter of 2006, from processing 375,000 tonnes of ore. Head grades during the quarter were 0.60% and
0.51% for nickel and copper, respectively. This compares with 258,100 tonnes of ore processed in the
third quarter of 2005 which produced 3.7 million pounds of nickel and 2.9 million pounds of copper..
Recoveries amounted to 68.0% and 88.2%, respectively.
While nickel head grades were above the reserve head grade and what the ore block model was
predicting during 2005, the opposite has occurred in 2006. A new ore block model is being prepared and
is scheduled for completion by year end. The lower nickel recovery during the third quarter of 2006 was a
function of both lower nickel head grades in this section of the orebody and poor operating performance
while testing the production of separate nickel and copper concentrates during the months of July and
August. This test has been discontinued.
Throughput improved 4.3% during the third quarter of 2006 compared to the second quarter of 2006 and
19.1% compared to the first quarter of this year. Throughput was up 36.6% when compared to the fourth
quarter of 2005.

During the third quarter of 2006, the plant treated an average of 125,000 tonnes per month (“tpm”). This
compares to an average of 112,400 tpm during the first six months of 2006 and an average of 83,100 tpm
during 2005. This improved mill rate is due to the installation of a new conveyor system enabling crushed
pebbles to bypass the SAG mill and feed directly into the ball mill, as well as the installation of a new
secondary crusher that was commissioned during the quarter. Further increases in throughput should be
achievable in the near term.
Grades of nickel and copper in the bulk concentrate during the third quarter of 2006 were 6.3% nickel and
7.0% copper, compared to 6.8% nickel and 6.7% copper during the first six months of 2006. The reasons
Page 4/13
for this temporary decline in concentrate grades are the same as those given for the lower recoveries
above.
Mine production has performed well during the quarter, with mining rates conforming to plant production.
Acquisition of Royalty
On July 5, 2001, the Company acquired from Atlantic Copper, S.A. (“AC”) participation rights in a
consortium with the Spanish state. The consortium is the holder of 100% of certain mineral rights located
in southern Spain, which included the Aguablanca mine property. The original acquisition price payable
to AC for these participation rights included a production royalty in respect of the mineral rights held by
the consortium. In the agreement with AC, the Company had the option to pay a sum of $6.0 million to AC
in exchange for all future royalty payments. This option was exercised on August 2, 2006. The royalty
payable to AC would have been applicable to Aguablanca mine production from August 2006 onward and
comprised variable payments dependent on combined nickel and copper prices. A royalty amounting to
1% of the net smelter return (“NSR”) was also applicable to production from any other future project within
the various mineral rights areas held by the consortium. This 1% NSR obligation has now also ceased as
a result of the Company exercising its option with AC.
Aguablanca News Subsequent to the Close of the Third Quarter
During October, plant throughput at Aguablanca was 140,000 tpm. This is the highest throughput level to
date reported by the Company. In addition, the water reserve at Aguablanca has risen to 500,000 m3,
due to the amount of rainfall in October and thus far in November.
Tasiast gold project
Construction of the project continues to be on time and it is expected to be completed during the first half
of 2007, with first gold production expected in 2007. Highlights of the construction progress, as at
September 30, 2006, are as follows:
§ SENET:
o All engineering has been completed.
o All orders have been procured.
o Shipping is 64% complete with crushers and ball mill now at site.
o Civil construction is 89% complete.
o Structure and mechanical erection is 39% complete.
§ Other:
o Access road is complete.
o Tailings facility, paddock 1 stage 1 is 49% complete and completely lined.
o The water line has been tested to kilometre 60, where water is currently being received.
Water is expected to reach site by the end of November.
o Power plant expected to be installed and operational in December.
o Mining contractor has started at site.
Total budget for construction of the project, including working capital and owner’s costs, amounts to $73
million, of which $42 million had been spent as at September 30, 2006.
Remaining project expenditures will be financed from the Company’s existing cash resources. On June
29, 2006, the Company concluded a project debt agreement with Macquarie Bank Ltd. (“Macquarie”) to
Page 5/13
finance the construction of the Tasiast project. Under this agreement, the Company has a term loan of
$42.5 million that was fully drawn down on June 30, 2006.
Tasiast News Subsequent to the Close of the Third Quarter
In October 2006, the Company received a revised resource and open-pit reserve calculation for its
Tasiast project. The new estimate incorporated a revised gold price and revised cost inputs, which
together have increased the proven and probable reserves to 1,040,000 ounces of gold, an increase of
18% over the 885,000 ounces of gold previously estimated.

These estimates were prepared under the supervision of David A. Orava, M. Eng., P. Eng., Associate
Mining Engineer of A.C.A. Howe International, who is a Qualified Person independent of Rio Narcea for
the purposes of National Instrument 43-101.
On November 3, 2006 the Company announced the arrival of the Ball Mill on site at Tasiast. This was the
last critical path item remaining to be delivered to the project site.
El Valle and Carlés gold operations
During the third quarter of 2006, the Company’s own gold operations in northern Spain produced 10,800
ounces of gold as compared with 20,700 ounces of gold in the same period of 2005. Sales from the
Company’s own gold operations amounted to $7.9 million in the third quarter of 2006, while cost of sales
for those operations were $6.5 million ($8.5 million and $9.2 million, respectively, in the same period of
2005). The El Valle plant processed 80,000 tonnes of the Company’s own ore at an average gold grade
of 4.6 g/t, compared with 99,400 tonnes with an average grade of 6.7 g/t gold in the prior year period.
Recoveries averaged 91.2% in the third quarter of 2006 compared to 95.4% a year earlier. In addition,
the plant processed 41,100 tonnes of Nalunaq ore during the third quarter of 2006 compared with 28,100
tonnes during the same period of 2005.
During the first nine months of 2006, the Company’s own gold operations produced 40,400 ounces of
gold as compared with 57,600 ounces of gold in the same period of 2005. Sales from the Company’s own
gold operations amounted to $28.1 million in the first nine months of 2006, while cost of sales for those
operations were $22.6 million ($26.4 million and $26.0 million, respectively, in the same period of 2005).
Page 6/13
The El Valle plant processed 302,700 tonnes of the Company’s own ore at an average gold grade of 4.5
g/t, compared with 329,000 tonnes with an average grade of 5.8 g/t gold in the prior year period.
Recoveries averaged 91.6% in the first nine months of 2006 compared to 94.0% a year earlier. In
addition, the plant processed 75,100 tonnes of Nalunaq ore during the first nine months of 2006,
compared to 76,343 tonnes treated in the same period of 2005.
In February 2006, after a thorough performance review of the El Valle and Carlés operations, the
Company took the decision to close these operations. Closure of both the El Valle and Carlés mines will
take place at the end of 2006. As a result, remaining mining is being concentrated in developed areas
with better rock conditions and higher grades. There has been no further investment in underground
development since February 2006. On June 22, 2006, the Company reached a collective redundancy
agreement with the local unions and mine workers with respect to the closure of the El Valle and Carlés
gold operations. Subsequently, on July 5, 2006, that agreement received the approval of the Spanish
labour authorities, a requirement when redundancy affects more than 10% of the workforce. As a result of
this agreement, closure costs are now estimated at $4.6 million as at September 30, 2006.
In reaching this decision, the Company was significantly influenced by the decision of the Regional
Authorities of Asturias, not to approve the “change of land use” required to develop the Salave gold
project located some 70 km west of the El Valle. The concentrates that were planned to be produced from
Salave were expected to be processed at the El Valle plant, resulting in improved economics for both
projects.
On March 9, 2006, the Company gave notice to Nalunaq that the existing milling agreement will terminate
on September 30, 2006. The last shipment of ore from Nalunaq arrived in October 2006 and will be
treated by the end of November 2006. The Company is reviewing possibilities for the disposal of the El
Valle and Carlés facilities.

Salave gold project
In August 2005, the regional Government of Asturias rejected the application for “change of land use”
required to develop the project. The Company has commenced legal proceedings in the Spanish courts
seeking reversal of the decision and/or monetary compensation. In the event that the decision of the
Government of Asturias is maintained, the independent legal advisors of the Company believe Rio
Narcea should succeed in obtaining significant monetary compensation. However, the outcome and
timing of any legal action are presently uncertain.
Acquisition of strategic shareholding in Chariot Resources Limited
During the three months ended September 30, 2006, the Company purchased 6,259,500 common shares
and 1,780,000 warrants of Chariot Resources Limited (“Chariot”) in the market for $3.9 million. In early
October the Company acquired an additional 48,500 common shares and 118,000 warrants. On October
5, 2006 the Company agreed to purchase an additional stake in Chariot from Amerigo Resources Limited
for $21.5 million. The Company now holds a total of 38,120,500 common shares and 13,430,000
warrants of Chariot. This represents 16.4% of the common shares and 17.4% of the common shares and
warrants outstanding of Chariot, and cost a total of $25.5 million.
Chariot’s Marcona copper project is located in Southern Peru on the same Iron Oxide Copper Gold
(IOCG) belt which hosts Mantos Blancos and Candelaria. The Company believes the Marcona project
has potential for significant low cost copper production and through its important stake in Chariot, Rio
Narcea will support sound and effective management to unlock this potential.
Exploration
The Company has active exploration projects on both the Iberian Peninsula and in Mauritania. The
following is a brief update of each project:
Aguablanca
Step out underground drilling conducted to the West of the Aguablanca orebody intersected a large
interval of patchy and disseminated sulfide mineralization hosted by irregular and porphyritic
gabbronorites. Results from one hole, located 225 meters to the West of the closest mineralization,
returned 15.6 meters at 0.45% nickel and 0.21% copper, including a higher grade interval of 5.3 meters at
0.93% nickel and 0.41% copper.
The exploration implications of this particular intersection are encouraging because surface mapping in
this zone only showed the presence of marbles and skarns cut by a few, narrow and barren gabbroic
dikes. This confirms the possibility of finding additional subsurface magmatic sulfide mineralization at
depth in these peripheral zones.
Two rigs will be devoted to exploration in this area.
Ossa Morena (Spain and Portugal)
Regional exploration was focused on the evaluation of several recently delineated nickel and gold stream
sediment anomalies.
In addition, a preliminary and shallow drilling program was completed on the Guijarro–Chocolatero gold
target. The program comprised 1,148 meters in 8 holes. These holes were testing the Guijarro soil
anomaly, directly related to silicified acid volcanics of Upper Precambrian–Lower Cambrian age with
Page 8/13
minor disseminated pyrite. Five of those holes returned low grade gold values over significant widths. The
best results were 21 meters at 3.6 g/t gold in DDH GUI-1 and 38 meters at 0.7 g/t gold in DDH GUI-3.
Guijarro–Chocolatero forms part of the Bodonal–Cala gold belt where the Company is now evaluating
several gold soil anomalies related to the same horizon of volcanic rocks, as well as copper–gold
mineralized systems with iron–oxide–copper–gold (“IOCG”) affinities.
Mauritania
The Company is planning to commence active exploration on its Mauritanian land holdings in the fourth
quarter of this year. The main focus will be the evaluation of geochemical and geophysical targets that
show potential for gold and nickel deposits. One rig has commenced drilling and a second is being
mobilized to site.
El Valle (Spain)
All exploration has been suspended on account of the planned closure of mining operations.
Exploration Agreements
The Company has exploration agreements on its properties with Kinbauri Gold Corp. (for gold in
Corcoesto , Galicia, Spain), C2C Inc. (for gold in Portugal) and Ventura Gold Corp. (for gold in the
Navelgas belt, Asturias, Spain). The exploration results arising from these agreements are reported by
each partner.
Other
Carl Hering (Senior Vice President Exploration and Business Development) is leaving the employ of the
Company effective December 31, 2006 for personal reasons. The Company is evaluating various
alternatives for his replacement. In the interim, Luis Pevida, Exploration Manager and Senior Geologist,
will assume Mr. Hering’s role.
