Nashwan Investment Update


Further to the announcements made on 30 March 2017 and 27 April 2017 with regard to Blenheim's conditional investment into Nashwan Holdings Limited ("Nashwan"), Blenheim is pleased to confirm that it has been advised by Nashwan that it now holds Convention d'Etablissement permits for its prospective lithium project areas, Menianbala and Djidje, in Bougouni province, Mali.


Nashwan and Blenheim are confident that the final issuance of the Arrête permits, as required under Malian law, which confirm the grant of the exploration licences, will now be granted.   


Further announcements will be made in due course detailing the planned work programme over the licence areas and confirming the formal grant of the exploration licenses.  


Blenheim and Nashwan have now updated the terms of the Company's investment, such that the Company has taken unconditional ownership of 30 per cent of the issued share capital of Nashwan, with the consideration, being £200,000 in cash and the issue of 75,000,000 ordinary shares of 0.1p each in the capital of Blenheim, only becoming payable following the grant of the final exploration licences at both Menianbala and Djidje. £100,000 of the £200,000 cash consideration is to be invested directly into Nashwan by the vendor to fund prospecting and exploration costs, with no dilution to Blenheim's 30 per cent interest.


Blenheim's Chairman, Chris Ells, commented: "Blenheim is pleased that Nashwan has agreed the establishment conventions for the Menianbala and Djidje licences which will accelerate commencement of the work programme on these two licence areas.


The Company intends to make a further announcement on the work programme in the near future.


Blenheim is now entering an exciting phase in the Company's development as an investor in the fast growing lithium market and we look forward to reporting progress from our burgeoning interests in Mali."
