The Company announces that as a result of payment defaults by Bounty Oil & Gas NL ("Bounty") under the joint operating agreements relating to the Kiliwani North Development Licence and the Nyuni Area PSA, that Bounty is now deemed to have transferred its interests in such assets to the Company's wholly-owned subsidiary, Ndovu Resources Limited, and the other non-defaulting parties. The transferred interests include all rights and liabilities except that Bounty will, pursuant to the joint operating agreements, remain liable for its share of any outstanding work commitments and abandonment costs.


Subject to the completion of certain formalities, Aminex's interests in the Kiliwani North Development Licence (which contains the Kiliwani North field and Kiliwani South prospect) and the offshore Nyuni Area PSA have therefore increased by 6.383% and 6.6667% respectively.
