Note to Editors:


It is proposed that the Company's Investment Policy will be to invest principally, but not exclusively in the resources and/or resources infrastructure sectors, with no specific national or regional focus. The Company may be either an active investor and acquire control of a single company or it may acquire non-controlling shareholdings.


The proposed investments to be made by the Company may be either quoted or unquoted; made by direct acquisition or through farm-ins; may be in companies, partnerships, joint ventures; or direct interests in resources projects. Target investments will generally be involved in projects in the exploration and/or development stage. The Company's equity interest in a proposed investment may range from a minority position to 100 per cent. ownership.


The Company will initially focus on projects located in the Middle East and Asia but will also consider investments in other geographical regions.


The Company will identify and assess potential investment targets and where it believes further investigation is required, intends to appoint appropriately qualified advisers to assist.


The Company proposes to carry out a comprehensive and thorough project review process in which all material aspects of any potential investment will be subject to rigorous due diligence, as appropriate. It is likely that the Company's financial resources will be invested in a small number of projects or potentially in just one investment which may be deemed to be a reverse takeover under the AIM Rules.

Where this is the case, it is intended to mitigate risk by undertaking an appropriate due diligence process. Any transaction constituting a reverse takeover under the AIM Rules will require Shareholder approval. The possibility of building a broader portfolio of investment assets has not, however, been excluded.


The Company intends to deliver shareholder returns principally through capital growth rather than capital distribution via dividends. Given the nature of the Company's Investing Policy, the Company does not intend to make regular periodic disclosures or calculations of net asset value.
