Drilling Update

Latest Drilling Supports Potential for Stage 2 Underground Mining at Barruecopardo Project

The Board of Ormonde is very pleased to report the results of the recently completed drilling program at the Barruecopardo Tungsten Project in Salamanca, Spain ('Barruecopardo' or the 'Project'). The purpose of this drilling program was to further confirm the potential for the mineral resources to be expanded and extended at depth, with a view to enabling development of a 'Stage 2' underground mine at the Project.

Highlights

· Excellent results obtained from 2,000m drilling program commenced during Q4 2015 including:

BAR83: 23m @ 0.26% WO from 172m (including 4m @ 1.23%WO)

BAR83: 5m @ 1.95 % WO3 from 404m

BAR85: 25m @ 0.21% WO from 334m (including 5m @ 0.59%WO)

BAR86: 6m @ 2.59% WO from 253m

· Results further support the current resource interpretation at Barruecopardo;

· Confirm the significant potential to extend tungsten mineralisation at the Project: and

· Demonstrate the potential to extend the nine year mine life at Barruecopardo substantially through the development of a 'Stage 2' underground mine at the Project

Steve Nicol, Ormonde's Managing Director, commented:

'The excellent drilling results achieved from the recently completed drilling program below the base of the planned open pit are most satisfying, confirming our belief that there is significant potential to substantially extend the mine life at Barruecopardo through the development of a Stage 2 underground mine. Works in this regard, including further drilling,will continue during the project construction and initial production periods.'

Drilling Results

The five hole drill program was carried out with the objective of confirming extensions tothe mineralisation at depth beneath the main central part of the planned 9 year open pit, whilst also following up a potentially expanded zone of mineralisation under the shallow northern end of the planned open pit which was identified by drilling in 2012.

An opportunity exists to significantly extend the currently defined nine year mine life of the Project through the development of a Stage 2 underground operation, with the identification of additional mineral resources below the central part of the planned open pit being the primary focus in this regard. The results of this initial drilling program lends growing support to this potential. The Project Company will continue to advance its goal of establishing and developing a fast track Stage 2 underground mine at the Project.

Drilling in the Northern area (BAR83, BAR84, and BAR87), below the shallow end of the currently defined open pitconfirmed that this part of the resource is more complex, with multiple schist blocks present within the granite being intersected during drilling. Further drill testing is warranted to follow up on the original results from the 2012 drilling, but such work will not be immediately prioritised.

A full table of significant intercepts is provided below.

Project Timeline Update

In February the Companyreported upon an administrative appeal in relation to an element of the compulsory land acquisition process underway which the Companyconsidered to be merely vexatious. This belief has been supported by a recent negative finding (favourable to the Company's position) at the initial administrative level of this appeal process, however Project timelines remain likely to be impacted. Following receipt of updated specialist legal advice related to the relevant appeals process and timelines the Companyis now finalisingdiscussions with its project partner and debt provider on the optimisation of the project delivery schedule with details to be announced in due course.

Notes to table:

All lengths are down-hole lengths.

Significant intercepts at 0.1% WO cut-off (4m minimum width of intercept).

Where cut grades are shown these are after application of a 5% WO top cut.

Sampling, Assaying and Quality Control Measures were implemented as part of the drilling program.

All core has been routinely logged by an experienced geologist. Relevant core intervals were split in half by Diamond saw, with half being sent for assay and the other half being retained in the core boxes for reference. Sampling is carried out over one metre intervals.

Sample preparation and analyses were performed at ALS Chemex (Spain). Assays are reported using the fusion XRF method. Reference samples (blanks, duplicates and certified standards) are routinely included in each sample batch as quality control measures. In addition check assays are performed on selected mineralised samples.

EurGeol Dr. Mark Holdstock, PGeo, a qualified person as defined in the Guidance Note for Mining, Oil and Gas Companies, June 2009, of the London Stock Exchange, acting in his capacity as consultant geologist, has reviewed and approved the technical information contained in this announcement.
