Exercise of Options

Asiamet Resources Limited ("ARS" or the “Company”) reports that it has received notification from option holders to exercise options over 5,000,000 new common shares in the share capital of the Company (the “New Common Shares”). The Company has today issued the New Common Shares to the option holders and has received C$280,000 at a weighted average exercise price of C$0.056 per option as a result of the exercise of these options.

Application has been made for the New Common Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM (“Admission”).  It is expected that Admission to AIM will become effective and dealings in the New Common Shares will commence on or around 11 June 2018.  The New Common Shares will rank pari passu in all respects with the existing common shares in the Company.

The total number of common shares outstanding after completion of the issue of the New Common Shares will increase from 927,663,355 to 932,663,355.  This represents the total number of voting rights in the Company and may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they can determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in the Company under the Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure and Transparency Rules.
