Repayment of Convertible Loan



Amur Minerals Corporation ("Amur" or the "Company"), the nickel-copper sulphide mineral exploration and resource development company focused on the far east of Russia, is pleased to announce that the Company has today repaid in full the balance ($853,000) of the convertible loans outstanding to Riverfort Global Opportunities PCC Limited and YA II PN Ltd  ("Riverfort") under the loan facility announced on 13 February 2018.



Robin Young, CEO of Amur Minerals Corporation, commented:


"The investment and support provided by Riverfort since February 2018 enabled Amur to continue the development of the project with the successful completion of the 2018 drill season, and the initiation of our current TEO feasibility study work programme. The 2018 field season allowed the Company to confirm the continuous mineralisation between the Ikenskoe and Kubuk deposits and to conduct infill drilling for resource classification. The Company was also able to complete the acquisition of the bulk samples for metallurgical test work, hydrological and rock mechanic drilling in 2018, all of which form important inputs into the TEO report."
