New World Oil and Gas Settlement Update


On 26 May 2015 Metal Tiger announced that, following market disposals of New World Oil and Gas (LON:NEW) shares totalling £169,891.60, only £17,243.53 had been received by the Company reflecting the limited proportion of stock delivered and settled on the Company's stockbroking account. 


Metal Tiger is now able to confirm that the Company has received payment of the full balance of money due from New World Oil and Gas disposals.   In addition the Company has also received confirmation that its remaining holding of 18,354,545 shares in New World Oil and Gas has been settled on the Company's stockbroking account.


After deducting legal costs incurred to protect the Company's position given the well reported settlement difficulties, and trading commissions, from the gross settlement proceeds, Metal Tiger has received a net £160,654.92 from the sales proceeds of the 28,700,000 New World Oil and Gas Shares sold and retains a now settled holding of 18,354,545 shares.  This compares to an original entry cost for 47,054,545 shares of £31,526.55.


The net proceeds received will be applied to further the current and potential new interests in the Company's Direct Equities and Direct Projects divisions.

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.
