Caledonia Mining Corporation: Update on Indigenisation at the Blanket Mine in Zimbabwe


August 19, 2011 Caledonia Mining Corporation: Update on Indigenisation at the Blanket Mine in Zimbabwe

Caledonia Mining Corporation ("Caledonia")
(TSX:CAL)(OTCBB:CALVF)(AIM:CMCL) provides the following update regarding indigenisation at the Blanket Gold Mine ("Blanket"), in Zimbabwe.

Caledonia submitted a comprehensive indigenisation proposal (the "proposal") to the Minister for Indigenisation on May 9, 2011. Since then, neither Blanket nor Caledonia have received any formal notification that the proposal is deficient or that it should be revised within any specified timescale. Caledonia has, however, received a copy of a letter sent from the Minister for Indigenisation to the Minister of Mines, in which he
requests that the Minister of Mines cancels Blanket's operating licence on the grounds that Caledonia's proposal does not meet the legislated indigenisation requirements.

It is understood that a number of other mining companies, banks and other businesses have beeninstructed to revise their indigenisation proposals or risk the loss of their operating licences.

Caledonia believes the Minister for Indigenisation has exceeded his legal powers both in terms of his
assessment of Caledonia's proposal and his request to the Minister of Mines. Caledonia is seeking urgent
clarification from the relevant ministers, and is also consulting with its legal advisers regarding appropriate
legal action.

Blanket's operations continue as normal and further information will be made available on this matter as
