All conditions to the Transaction have now been satisfied, save for final receipt of the change in control approval from the Minister of Mineral, Energy and Water Resources of the Republic of Botswana (the “Botswana Consent”). The Botswana Consent were received by Cobre, however, corrections were required and these corrections have been requested and are expected back in the next few weeks.

The first technical committee meeting has already been held and proposed drill targets and budgets have been prepared for consideration by KML joint venture committee. Metal Tiger will provide an update will be provided to shareholders once plans and budgets have been formally approved and drill contracts have been awarded. It is anticipated that this will happen imminently and both parties are using best efforts to ensure that closing matters and relevant transfers are done as quickly as possible to ensure that drilling can commence as soon as possible.

Notes to Editors:

Metal Tiger PLC is admitted to the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange AIM Market (“AIM”) with the trading code MTR and invests in high potential mineral projects with a base, precious and strategic metals focus.

The Company’s target is to deliver a high return for shareholders by investing in significantly undervalued and/or high potential opportunities in the mineral exploration and development sector. Metal Tiger has two investment divisions: Equity Investments and Project Investments.

Equity Investments invests in undervalued natural resource companies. The majority of its investments are listed on AIM, the TSX and the ASX, which includes its interest in Sandfire Resources Limited (ASX: SFR). The Company also considers selective opportunities to invest in private natural resource companies, typically where there is an identifiable path to IPO. Through the trading of equities and warrants, Metal Tiger seeks to generate cash for investment for the Project Investments division.

Project Investments is focused on the development of its key project interests in Botswana, where Metal Tiger has a growing interest in the large and highly prospective Kalahari copper/silver belt through its interest in Kalahari Metals Limited.

The Company actively assesses new investment opportunities on an on-going basis and has access to a diverse pipeline of new opportunities in the natural resources and mining sectors. For pipeline opportunities deemed sufficiently attractive, Metal Tiger may invest in the project or entity by buying publicly listed shares, by financing privately and/or by entering into a joint venture.
