("Blenheim" or the "Company")

Result of General Meeting

Blenheim is pleased to announce that at the Company's General Meeting held earlier today, both resolutions were duly passed.

As a result, shareholders have granted the directors the authority to allot and issue up to 75,000,000 ordinary shares of 0.1 pence each in the capital of the Company ("Ordinary Shares"), (the "Consideration Shares"), as partial consideration for the conditional acquisition of a 30 per cent interest in Nashwan Holdings Ltd ("Nashwan"), as announced by the Company on 30 March 2017. The remaining consideration for the investment in Nashwan is £200,000 in cash (the "Cash Consideration"). Completion of the Company's investment in Nashwan was conditional on shareholders granting the directors the authority to allot and issue the Consideration Shares and will now take place within 5 business days. 

Pursuant to the terms of the acquisition, the issue of the Consideration Shares and the payment of the Cash Consideration to Mr Harry Sutherland remains conditional on Nashwan successfully being granted with exploration licences over both its Menianbala and Djidje projects within 90 days of the date of completion, or by such other date agreed between the parties. Blenheim will make further announcements in this respect in due course.

Shareholders have also granted the directors the authority to allot and issue Ordinary Shares on a non-pre-emptive basis up to an aggregate nominal amount of £398,577. Accordingly, the Company now has the requisite authority to complete the conditional placing of 222,222,222 Ordinary Shares to raise £1 million before expenses, and to issue 11,111,111 warrants over Ordinary Shares to Cornhill Capital Limited, the Company's broker (announced on 27 April 2017).

Application has been made for 222,222,222 new Ordinary Shares, which rank pari passu with the Company's existing issued Ordinary Shares, to be admitted to trading on the AIM Market of the London Stock Exchange ("AIM"). Dealings on AIM are expected to commence at 8:00 a.m. on or around 3 May 2017 ("Admission").

Further to the announcement of 27 April 2017, and pursuant to the authorities granted by shareholders at the Company's general meeting of shareholders held on 7 February 2017, £1 of the proceeds of the placing, having been raised for this specific purpose, shall be used by the Company to redeem in total the 23,790 deferred shares of £49 each in the capital of the Company in issue (the "Deferred Shares"). The Deferred Shares carry no voting rights and have effectively no economic value. The redemption of the Deferred Shares will be completed as soon as reasonably practicable following Admission.


Total Voting Rights


Following Admission, the issued share capital of the Company will comprise 620,798,836 Ordinary Shares with voting rights attached (one vote per share). The Company does not hold any shares in treasury. This figure of 620,798,836 may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculation by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, the share capital of the Company under the Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.
