China Gengsheng Minerals Announces New Breakthrough in Castable Technology to Enhance Safety and Longevity of Heating Furnaces in Industrial Processes

October 1, 2009

GONGYI, China, Oct. 1 /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 it has made a major
breakthrough in industrial material technology with the invention of a new
type of castables.

The new castable product, called Si-Enhanced Anti-Creep High-Aluminum
Castable (SEAC HAC), is created by adding silicon and other minerals to the
traditional raw material such as bauxite so that the finished product has the
characteristic of much lower probability of creep, which is a gradual change
of shape under stress during high-temperature industrial processes, for
heating furnaces at steel mills and other industrial plants.

On September 29, 2009, the Science & Technology Bureau of Zhengzhou City,
Henan Province reviewed the testing results of Gengsheng’s SEAC HAC and more
than 10 industrial material experts from regional universities such as Wuhan
Science & Technology University, Henan Science & Technology University,
Zhengzhou University, and Henan Space Institute, as well as engineers from
Shanghai Baosteel at the product evaluation event acknowledged the potential
applications of this new product. Gengsheng has filed a patent for the SEAC
HAC, which has also been confirmed to meet the Q/HGS 015-2009 national
standards as published by China’s National Refractory Product Quality
Inspection Center.

“Gengsheng’s pipeline for new products has never been stronger, thanks to
our steady effort to ratchet up our R&D,” said Mr. Shunqing Zhang, Chairman
and CEO of Gengsheng. “After the introduction of our light castables as an
energy-saving back lining in the industrial furnace, we are now announcing
this more significant innovation, which has been accepted for trial use by
four major steel companies in China. Our SEAC HAC can extend the lifespan of
industrial furnaces by up to 30% and it has much wider application and greater
market potential than all of our previous innovations, as high-aluminum
castables currently make up almost half of China’s$5 billion monolithic
refractory market. Our strategy is to increase our marketing effort for this
new product at industry shows, through positive feedback from our existing
customers and with the endorsement of research institutes.”
