Gold Production Opportunity Proceeds


Metal Tiger plc (LON:MTR) the London Stock Exchange AIM listed investor in strategic natural resource opportunities is pleased to announce that yesterday the Company exercised its option to participate in the Semenovsky Tailings Project ("STP") gold production opportunity in partnership with Eurasia Mining (LON:EUA).


Readers wishing to understand the background to this opportunity should review the Company's announcement dated 16th November 2015 together with further updated information provided in the subsequent announcement dated 12th February 2016.


Paul Johnson Chief Executive Officer of Metal Tiger plc commented "I am please to confirm that Metal Tiger will be participating in this gold production opportunity.  The project fundamentals, particularly recently updated and announced in February made exercise of this option an obvious commercial decision for the Company. 


By exercising this option Metal Tiger is committed to a payment of up to US$100,000 for due diligence, US$50,000 of which has already been paid in option fees, leaving up to $50,000 payable for the due diligence phase.


We will be meeting with Eurasia shortly to review forward planning and will update the market with our plans for due diligence completion and 2016 activities, in the near term.  Metal Tiger also continues to receive interest in this project from third parties and will update the market should this interest crystallise.


Metal Tiger continues to build its portfolio of interests, now with a clear focus on its 'Metal Projects' Division.  The STP is an excellent addition to the larger scale opportunities in Botswana, Spain and Thailand, where significant progress is being made and further market updates are expected shortly."
