The highly radiopure about 250 kg NaI(Tl) DAMA/LIBRA set-up is running at the
Sasso National Laboratory of the I.N.F.N.. First results exploiting the model
independent annual modulation signature for Dark Matter particles in the
halo are presented (exposure of 0.53 ton x yr). The DAMA/LIBRA data confirm
evidence for the presence of Dark Matter particles in the galactic halo as
by the former DAMA/NaI experiment. The combined analysis of the data of the
experiments (total exposure 0.82 ton x yr) gives a C.L. at 8.2 sigma.
