Cameron Parry, Metal Tiger CEO commented: "Metal Tiger is pleased to announce this additional fundraising of £300,000 which has been undertaken to enable the Company to engage with additional strategic opportunities in respect of both Metal Tiger's Direct Equities and Direct Projects divisions.
The increasing awareness about Metal Tiger and its investing success to date has led to the Company receiving various invitations to review additional natural resource equity and project opportunities. The availability of numerous opportunities and the sensible commercial terms that can be negotiated reflects the limited capital available across much of the natural resource sector during this bottoming phase of the resources cycle.
Good value opportunities will not be available to the same extent as the sector recovery ensues and the time to grow Metal Tiger's portfolio of interests is now, in an ambitious but measured way.
This additional financing enables Metal Tiger to now engage with certain additional strategic opportunities and we look forward to providing further information to market as soon as commercial negotiations allow."

Notes to Editors:
Metal Tiger Plc is a natural resources focused investing company quoted on the London Stock Exchange AIM Market ("AIM") with the trading code MTR and two investment divisions, Direct Equities and Direct Projects.
The Direct Equities division invests in quoted natural resource explorers and developers, with a combination of shares and warrants providing a potential non-debt financing instrument and enhanced return potential.
The Direct Projects division invests in operational mineral exploration projects with current investments in Spanish Gold & Tungsten, Thai Gold, Copper & Antimony, and Tanzanian Gold and Uranium. The Direct Projects investment division also has working collaborations to identify new investment opportunities in Russia (platinum focus) and Turkey (gold focus), in association with experienced in-country partners.
Metal Tiger's target is to deliver a high return for shareholders by investing in significantly undervalued and/or high potential opportunities in the mineral exploration and development sector timed to coincide where possible, with a cyclical recovery in the exploration and mining markets.
