Update on Convertible Loan Note

Altona (NEX: ANR.PL), a mining investment company with significant coal resources in Australia, announces that its joint venture partner, Sino-Aus Energy Group Ltd (“Sino-Aus”) has not been granted the Chinese government permit, allowing it to transfer funds out of China, in order to satisfy the 90 day subscription terms of the convertible loan note it entered into on 30 January 2019.

Sino-Aus has reported that the conditions set by the Chinese government to grant such a permit, have tightened in the past 18 months, but that it is willing to reapply for the permit at a later date, as it remains a strong supporter of Altona’s strategy.

In the meantime, the Company is considering a number of alternative funding options to provide it with the capital it needs to execute its 2019 business objectives, including its mining assets is South Australia and the potential investment into an operational Chinese vanadium mining company.
