Net Asset Value

Baker Steel Resources Trust Limited (the "Company") announces its unaudited net asset value per share at 29 September 2017:

Net asset value per Ordinary Share: 50.4 pence

Since 31 August 2017 the NAV per share has decreased by 4.4% primarily due to a fall in the share price of Ivanhoe Mines Limited on the Toronto Stock Exchange and the increase in the value of Sterling against the currencies in which the Company's investments are denominated.

Investment Update


Cemos Group plc ("Cemos")

During September 2017, Cemos launched a rights issue of Convertible Unsecured Loan Stock ("CULS") to raise up to €10 million to fund the construction of a cement plant at its Tarfaya project in Morocco. The cement plant will be manufactured, constructed and initially operated by Loesche GmbH based in Düsseldorf, Germany, which will also be providing vendor financing for the plant.


Civil works have commenced for the cement plant which will have a capacity of up to 324,000 tonnes per annum and is planned to be in production in the third quarter of 2018. Total capital costs are budgeted at under €12 million and the operation is expected to have a payback of less than two years.


During September 2017, the Company supported the CULS issue, investing a further €2.25 million.



Gateway Mining Limited ("Gateway")


During September 2017, the Company conditionally committed to investing up to A$10 million in Gateway, an Australian Stock Exchange listed company which is in the process of acquiring certain hard coking coal assets in the Bowen Basin, Queensland, Australia. The investment, which will be a mixture of convertible loan notes and equity, is conditional inter alia on Gateway raising at least a further A$15 million and completion of the acquisition of the coal assets.


Further information will be available once Gateway publishes its prospectus which is expected during October 2017.
