"The Company is fully funded for its current exploration programme in Cameroon and our partners are funding our other ongoing exploration programmes."

Following Admission, the Company's issued share capital will be 1,492,289,522 Ordinary Shares.

Notes to Editors:

 

Oriole Resources PLC is an AIM-listed exploration company, operating West Africa. It is focused on early-stage exploration in Cameroon (Bibemi and Wapouzé projects) and the more advanced Senala gold project in Senegal, where IAMGOLD has the option to spend US$8 million to earn a 70% interest. Year two commitments have been met at all three projects. The Company has several interests and royalties in companies operating throughout Africa and Turkey that could deliver future cash flow, and it continues to assess new opportunities in both regions.
