("Oracle", the "Company")


Update on Non-Binding MoU with HH Private Office


Oracle Power PLC, the AIM listed international natural resource and power project developer (AIM:ORCP), announces that further to the announcement on 29 July 2020, the Board of Oracle and The Office of His Highness Sheikh Ahmed Dalmook Al Maktoum ('HH Private Office') continue to work closely on the evaluation of potential mining opportunities in Africa.


Following the completion of initial assessments on the iron ore asset in Guinea which was referred to in the announcement of 29 July 2020, the Board of Oracle and HH Private Office have together reached the agreement that they will not pursue this project further and instead will jointly focus on additional opportunities within the natural resources sector in Africa.  The Company will provide further updates regarding these opportunities as they arise.


Naheed Memon, CEO of Oracle, commented :


"We continue to work with The Private Office of His Highness Sheikh Ahmed Dalmook Al Maktoum to generate interesting opportunities which merit further evaluation.  The ongoing support of HH Private Office, both in terms of our flagship Thar Block VI Project and this potential collaboration in new mining projects in Africa, strengthens our fundamentals as an international natural resources and power project developer. I am greatly encouraged by the shared motivation and engagement, amongst all parties, as we continue to build Oracle Power PLC."
