Vast Resources plc
(“Vast” or the “Company”)

Placing and Subscription to raise £600,000 before costs

Vast Resources plc, the AIM-listed mining company, is pleased to announce that it has raised in aggregate £600,000 before costs through a placing (the “Placing”) and subscription (the “Subscription”) of 444,444,444 ordinary shares of 0.1p in the Company (Ordinary Shares) at a price of 0.135p per Ordinary Share (the “Placing and Subscription Shares”).  The Placing was for 407,407,407 Ordinary Shares and was undertaken by the Company’s joint broker SVS Securities plc.  The Subscription was for 37,037,037 Ordinary Shares of which 7,407,407 were taken up by Andrew Prelea and 29,629,630 were taken up by Roy Tucker, directors of the Company.

222,222,222 of the Placing and Subscription Shares were issued under existing authorities available to the Board relating to Baita Plai Polymetallic Mine (“Baita Plai”) and for general corporate purposes and 222,222,222 of the Placing and Subscription Shares were issued under existing authorities available to the Board relating to exploration for and mining of diamonds in Zimbabwe as approved by Shareholders on 11 March 2019. 

The Placing and Subscription will be applied as to £300,000 to maintain the Company’s operations at Baita Plai and for general corporate purposes prior to the receipt of more substantial funding post the proposed restructuring of the Company (subject to the approval of shareholders at the forthcoming General Meeting of the Company on 23 April 2019), and as to £300,000 for working capital at the Heritage Concession in Zimbabwe which will include preparation for immediate mobilisation on signing of the joint venture contract with the Chiadzwa Community Trust.

Admission of and Dealings in the Placing and Subscription Shares
The issue of the Placing and Subscription Shares is conditional on their admission to trading on AIM ("Admission").  Application is being made for the Placing and Subscription Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM and it is expected that Admission will become effective and dealing in the Placing and Subscription Shares will commence on or around 17 April 2019.  The Placing and Subscription Shares will rank pari passu with existing Ordinary Shares.

Following Admission, the total issued share capital of the Company will be 7,945,171,311.  The above figure of 7,945,171,311 may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in Vast under the FCA's Disclosure and Transparency Rule.

Following Admission the Ordinary Shares held by Andrew Prelea and Roy Tucker will be 39,179,476 and 69,569,992 respectively representing 0.49% and 0.88% respectively of the total enlarged share capital of the Company.
