Shambesai Gold Project, Kyrgyz Republic (MSR 100%)

Manas Resources Limited

ACN 128 042 606

A Kyrgyz Republic Energy and Minerals Parliamentary Committee hearing on 10 December 2013 recommended the immediate development of the Shambesai Gold Project and instructed national and local authorities, via official decree, to allow development to continue unhindered and according to current schedules, subject to Manas meeting government and local community laws and guidelines.
The Committee hearing reviewed all licence and permit submissions made by Manas including environmental and social surveys, considered support and concerns from the local community and reviewed the socio‐ economic contribution the Shambesai Gold Project will make to the Kyrgyz Republic and, in particular, the Maidan community nearest the deposit.
Manas expects it will receive a structured support regime that unites both government and community backing as one and is a further important step towards the commencement of development of the Shambesai Gold Project in 2014 as a result of the Committee's recommendation.

Project Permitting

Manas's 100%-owned Kyrgyz subsidiary CJSC Z-Explorer was issued the "Shambesai Infrastructure Land Transformation and Land Allotment" or "Land Permit" in September 2013, and since then the Company has been working on key submissions to advance towards the commencement of construction. Of particular importance is the completion and submission of the OVOS, the Kyrgyz Republic equivalent of an Environmental and Social Impact Assessment.
Throughout the December 2013 Quarter, Manas has been working in conjunction with the Maidan local community, and the relevant Kyrgyz State Agencies and Ministries for the timely submission of the OVOS. Manas expects to submit the OVOS during the March 2014 Quarter. Upon this submission and commencement of the approval process, Manas plans to initiate the completion of detailed project design.

Project Financing

Discussions regarding financing of capital requirements for the Shambesai project are advancing with banks and institutions in North America and Asia.
Manas will be updating the Shambesai Bankable Feasibility Study (BFS) schedule to reflect the current project timeline in regards to obtaining environment and construction permits and timing for the drawdown of project finance opportunities.

Exploration

Upon completion of the regional 2013 programs at Obdilla and Ulugtau, Manas has commenced planning for the 2014 programs. Exploration is expected to commence at the Shambesai Project at the end of the winter season towards the end of the March 2014 Quarter.

Assessment)

- Land acquisition, government and community relations expenses

Note: The Mineral Resource was estimated within constraining wireframe solids based on a nominal lower cut-off grade of 0.2 g/t Au. The Mineral Resource is quoted from all blocks above a cut-off grade of 0.3 g/t Au for Oxide Resources and 0.75 g/t Au for Sulphide Resources. Low grade refers to blocks above cut-off and below 2.0 g/t Au, while High Grade refers to blocks above 2.0 g/t Au. Differences may occur due to rounding.

The information reported above was prepared and first disclosed under the JORC Code 2004. It has not been updated since to comply with the JORC Code 2012 on the basis that the information has not materially changed since it was last reported.
