Generative

Sisorta

Complete geological re-interpretation and commence JORC Resource update.

Catak

Complete initial program of mapping, surface sampling and geophysics.

Corporate

Annual general meeting to be held on 20 November 2014.

Tax ruling being sought from the Australian Tax Office (ATO) regarding the tax treatment of proposed return of capital.

Complete the return of capital (if approved by shareholders) on 12 December 2014.

Complete the process of reducing the Company's corporate cost structures in Australia and Turkey to ensure its staffing and corporate overheads are appropriate for the future strategic direction of the Company.

SALE OF THE KESTANELIK GOLD PROJECT

On 24 October 2014, the Company received US$40 million in cash from the sale of the Kestanelik Gold Project to
Nurol Holdings A.S., a leading Turkish industrial group (the Transaction).
Initially announced on 25 July 2014, the Transaction was overwhelmingly endorsed by shareholders at an ordinary general meeting of the Company held on 13 October 2014. More than 98% of proxies received for the meeting were cast in favour of the sale.
The sale of the Kestanelik project delivered significant benefits for Chesser shareholders. Pitched at a significant premium to the prevailing share market valuation of the company, the sale has crystallised the value of the project for shareholders, reduced development and funding risks and provides the opportunity for a significant capital return to be made.

Scoping Study Update

In August 2013 the Company released an Updated Scoping Study for the Kestanelik Project and announced that Company's Directors had approved the commencement of a pre-feasibility study for the Project. The Company commenced the pre-feasibility study in October 2013.
The Company had planned to complete and report the outcomes in the September 2014 quarter however in light of the proposed transaction for the disposal of the Kestanelik Project, a decision was taken to suspend all study related work.

CATAK Gold

(Chesser earning up to 100%)

During the September quarter the Company undertook a limited work program at the Catak Project which included an initial program of mapping, surface sampling and geophysics at the Catak Project. The program is to be completed in the December quarter.
The Company also continued a surface sampling program aimed at collecting a representative suite of high grade and low grade vein material for petrographic analysis. The aim of this program is to better constrain target depths in the various mineralized vein structures exposed on the Catak property.

SISORTA Gold

(Chesser 51%)

During the September quarter the Company focused its resources and efforts on completing the sale of the Kestanelik project and as a consequence no work was undertaken in relation to the Sisorta Project during the quarter.

CORPORATE

During the quarter the Company completed the sale of the third and final tranche of 312,500 Pilot Gold Inc shares that were received pursuant to the sale of the Karaayi Project in September 2013.
The Company commenced the process of reducing its corporate cost structure in Australia and in Turkey to ensure that its staffing levels and corporate overheads are appropriate for the future strategic direction of the Company.

FUTURE ACTIVITIES

Following completion of the sale of the Kestanelik Project Chesser will have estimated cash (after tax and transaction costs) of approximately A$42.05 million prior to any distribution of proceeds from the Transaction to Shareholders. The Company intends to utilise these funds for the following purposes.

a. Return of funds to shareholders

Chesser Directors will seek shareholder approval for a capital return of A$0.15 per share (approximately A$33.15 million), with shareholders to vote on the proposal at the forthcoming Annual General Meeting ("AGM") in Brisbane on November 20, 2014. Details of the proposed return of funds are set out in the Notice of AGM that is available at www.chesserresources.com.au .
Set out below is an indicative timetable for the Return of Capital (if the Resolution is approved by Shareholders):

Implementation of the Return of Capital - anticipated date of distribution of funds and distribution statements to Shareholders

Friday, 12 December 2014

* All dates and times are indicative only. The Company reserves the right to vary these dates and times. All dates and times refer to Brisbane time. The Company will make an announcement to ASX of any changes if they occur.

As disclosed in the AGM Notice of Meeting, the Company is seeking a ruling from the Australian Taxation Office confirming that the return to shareholders will be treated as a capital return for taxation purposes.

If shareholders wish to receive their Return of Capital distribution by direct bank transfer, the Company advises Shareholders to provide their Australian bank account details to the Share Registry by completing the Tax File Number (TFN) and Bank Account Notification Form enclosed with the Notice of AGM . Shareholders who do not provide their bank account details to the Share Registry will receive the Return of Capital distribution via cheque which may delay the receipt of funds.

b. Exploration activities

If shareholders approve the return of capital, Chesser will retain approximately A$8.9 million in cash to be used to fund exploration activities.
In the short term and subject to continued positive exploration results, Chesser will maintain an exploration presence in Turkey by continuing exploration at its Sisorta and Catak Projects.
In addition, the Company is actively reviewing opportunities to add growth projects to its portfolio, with a focus on precious metals exploration and development in favourable jurisdictions where Directors and senior management can apply their skills and experience to create value for shareholders.
The Company believes that its healthy retained cash balance enables it to differentiate itself from many junior resources companies in the market today, as it is now in the enviable position of having sufficient cash reserves to take advantage of opportunities that develop. In assessing potential opportunities the Company will apply a rigorous and disciplined approach to its evaluation of any potential investments.
