("Shanta Gold" or the "Company")

Results of Notes Placing

Further to the announcement yesterday, Shanta Gold is pleased to announce that US$25 million in nominal value of senior unsecured subordinated convertible loan notes due 2017 ("Notes") in the Company (the "Placing Notes") have been successfully placed by Liberum Capital Limited ("Liberum Capital") with institutional and other investors.

The coupon of the Notes has been set at 8.5% per annum and the conversion price of the Notes has been set at 29.53p, representing a 25% conversion premium to the closing mid-market price on the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange plc ("AIM") on 3 April 2012. The Placing Notes will raise gross proceeds of US$25 million (approximately £16 million).  Together with the Equity Placing announced yesterday, the Company has raised gross proceeds of approximately US$40 million (approximately £25 million).

It is expected that the Placing Notes will be issued on or around 13 April 2012, conditional upon the placing agreement dated 4 April 2012 and made between the Company, the executive directors of the Company and Liberum Capital becoming unconditional and not being terminated prior to the issue of the Placing Notes.
