In addition, 375,000 new ordinary shares of no par value in the Company have been issued to an adviser at the Issue Price in lieu of cash fees (the "Fee Shares").
The Subscription Shares and the Fee Shares (together, the "New Ordinary Shares") represent approximately 6.0 per cent. of the enlarged issued share capital (as enlarged by the New Ordinary Shares).

Further details on the Subscription
The Subscription is conditional on admission of the New Ordinary Shares to trading on AIM ("Admission"). The New Ordinary Shares will be fully paid and will rank pari passu in all respects with the Company's existing ordinary shares of no par value ("Ordinary Shares"). Application will be made to the London Stock Exchange for Admission. It is expected that Admission of the New Ordinary Shares will become effective and that dealings in such New Ordinary Shares will commence at 8.00 a.m. on 26 October 2017. Following Admission of the New Ordinary Shares, the Company's issued share capital will consist of 835,915,779 Ordinary Shares with voting rights. Landore Resources does not hold any Ordinary Shares in treasury.
The aforementioned figure of 835,915,779 Ordinary Shares may be used by shareholders in the Company as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, Landore Resources under the Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.
