March 25, 2009

GONGYI, China, March 25 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ — China Gengsheng
Minerals, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: CHGS) (“Gengsheng” or “the Company”), a
materials technology company in China with products capable of withstanding
high temperature, saving energy and boosting productivity in certain
industries such as steel and oil, today announced that Henan Gengsheng
Refractories Co., Ltd., its wholly owned subsidiary, has signed a $2.9 million
(RMB 20 million) short-term loan agreement with Agricultural Bank of China’s
Gongyi City branch in Henan Province (“ABC Gongyi”).

“I am very pleased that ABC Gongyi granted us this loan based on our
excellent credit,” said Mr. Shunqing Zhang, Chairman and CEO and the Company.
“The proceeds give us sufficient cushion in a difficult economic environment,
with steel factories curtailing production. And because of the slowdown in the
alternative energy space worldwide, we are delaying our launch of our 2,083-
ton-capacity fine precision abrasive production line until later this year.
Depending on the improvement in market condition, we will use this $2.9-
loan to start the production and shipment of the abrasives.”

Gengsheng has built the new facilities and is now awaiting equipment
purchase and installation to produce the fine precision abrasives from silicon
carbide (SiC), which are ultra-fine, high-strength, grain-like pellets with
uniform shape, and have applications in surface-polishing and slicing of
precision instrument such as solar panels.
