FREEHOLD, NJ--(Marketwired - Dec 6, 2013) - Mabwe Minerals Inc. (OTCQB: MBMI) (the "Company"), a natural resources company engaged in the mining and commercial sales of industrial minerals and metals, is pleased to announce the successful closing of the WGB Kinsey Equity Exchange Agreement, entered into October 29th, 2012, with all parties mutually agreeing to waive the stock dilution clause with no additional shares to be issued to WGB Kinsey or any other form of compensation.

Due to favorable events unfolding in Zimbabwe, Mabwe Minerals' relationship with WGB Kinsey is rapidly expanding to include pursuing new business opportunities together.

Anthony Kinsey, Managing Director of WGB Kinsey & Company, stated, "We recognize the many opportunities that exist by being affiliated with a publicly traded company. We believe there are many misperceptions assumed with doing business in Zimbabwe while our country is focused on creating favorable conditions to encourage foreign investment into the mining sector. We believe Mabwe Minerals is undervalued and we welcomed the opportunity to finalize the Equity Exchange Agreement to the benefit of all shareholders. We are making great progress at Dodge Mine. The Mabwe Minerals management team visits Zimbabwe often. They have kept their word on every commitment, unlike many others before them. We consider them family."
