Kryso Resources PLC

Further Excellent Drill Intersections from Pakrut

20 April 2010

                              Kryso Resources plc                              

                          (`Kryso' or `the Company')                           

        Further Excellent Drill Intersections from Pakrut Gold Deposit         


  * Ore Zone 1: 25.5m at 7.5 g/t, 42.4m at 5.4 g/t and 12.0m at 6.4 g/t Au
  * Ore Zone 3: 9.0m at 7.5 g/t and 13.5m at 7.5 g/t Au (with 4.5m at 20.1 g/t)
  * Updated resource estimate will form part of the Pakrut Bankable Feasibility
    Study (`BFS')
  * BFS results expected to be available at the end of Q2 2010
Kryso Resources plc, an AIM listed gold exploration and development company, is
advancing its Pakrut gold project in Tajikistan through a bankable feasibility
study (BFS), is pleased to report highly encouraging assay results from
drilling at Pakrut completed in the second half of 2009. The results have been
received from the SGS Group in South Africa, the independent assay laboratory
used by the Company. Significant intercepts were obtained from 12 of the 14
holes analysed.

In Ore Zone 1, mineralization was intercepted at depths of 230-400m below the
adit level, confirming that the mineralization is consistent and occurs at
economic grades to at least these depths. The deepest hole drilled at Pakrut
during the Soviet era vertically intersected Ore Zone 1 at 508m, reportedly
returning 34.4g/t Au over 2m. Ore Zone 1 remains open at depth.

The two high grade intercepts recorded in the shallower areas of Ore Zone 3
indicate that this zone is considered highly likely to host economic grade
mineralization. Similarly, intersections in Ore Zone 6a are at potentially
economic grades (see full results table below).

Overall, the results confirm the near vertical attitude and consistent shape of
the Pakrut ore bodies, which are likely to be amenable to underground mining

Trevor Davenport, Non-Executive Chairman and interim Managing Director of
Kryso, comments:

`These results indicate that there is excellent potential to expand the
underground resource base at Pakrut, and vindicate the decision to reorient the
Pakrut BFS around an underground mining case. In this context, the results from
Ore Zone 1 continue to show good grades and continuity at depth, is
particularly exciting. Combined with the intersections from drilling in the
first half of 2009 and subject to the findings of the BFS, these results
suggest that Pakrut has potential to develop into a significant underground
gold mining operation.'

About the Pakrut Gold Project

The Pakrut gold project, of which Kryso has 100% ownership, is situated in
Tajikistan approximately 112km northeast of the capital city Dushanbe. Pakrut
has total JORC Code-compliant gold resources of approximately 2.8 million
ounces (assuming a cut-off grade of 0.5g/t Au) and is located within the Tien
Shan gold belt, which extends from Uzbekistan into Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan and
western China, and which hosts a number of multi-million ounce gold deposits.

Drilling at Pakrut has previously returned numerous exciting intersections,
including 123.7m at 6.1g/t Au, 42m at 11.2g/t Au and 50m at 5.7g/t Au. A
bankable feasibility study (BFS) for the Pakrut project is currently being
undertaken by the Beijing General Research Institute of Mining & Metallurgy

About Tajikistan

member of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) and the Shanghai
Cooperation Organisation. Tajikistan hosts numerous operating precious metal
mines as well as the largest aluminium smelter in Central Asia. Kryso's
management team has extensive experience in the mining industry in Tajikistan.
