Shambesai Gold Project, Kyrgyz Republic (MSR 100%) Sanitary Protection Zone approved

During the September Quarter, the Company announced that the Sanitary Protection Zone (SPZ) for the Shambesai Gold Project had been approved by the State Ministry of Health and the State Agency for Environmental Protection and Forestry. The SPZ is the final part of the Kyrgyz Republic Environmental and Social Impact Assessment process and allows the completion of final design permitting and community
consultation for Shambesai.

The SPZ is a buffer zone established around industrial and mining facilities under Kyrgyz environmental legislation where activities are controlled to ensure any potential possible environmental impacts are limited. For the Shambesai project the SPZ, which is established through independent environmental modelling, doesn't extend over any of the local village areas and confirms the project is likely to have minimal to no impact on any current agricultural and residential use, thus reducing the level of compensation required.
The issuance of these further permits is another major milestone that assists in progressing the financing of
Shambesai.
Manas continues to work towards obtaining approval of the final design and infrastructure permits required to commence construction. The first step, the environmental audit of the Process Plant Basic Engineering, was successfully completed, and the technical and safety review is currently underway. Manas has recently received the Basic Engineering design for the mine infrastructure and the open pits from its Kyrgyz Republic consultant Asia Rudd Project and will submit the final design documentation for approval during the December
2014 Quarter.
During the December Quarter the Company will continue to focus on progressing technical permitting and community relations while maintaining the cost-cutting initiatives that have been implemented throughout the year. These initiatives include the reduction of non-essential staff, the completion of technical requirements according to licensing condition and the maintenance of community and government relationships. Given these cost reduction strategies, it is estimated that total administration and project expenditure will drop to
$650,000 for the December Quarter. The Company is also assessing the potential for divestment of some non- core assets which could not only provide some revenue but also reduce holding costs.

Project Financing

Discussions regarding financing the full capital requirements for the Shambesai Gold Project continue with three institutions from Asia and Europe. These mining finance institutions and investors have shown interest in providing single-package financing solutions for the proposed development of the Shambesai gold mine.
Each of the financiers have completed or are near to completing their due diligence assessment of the project and have shown strong interest in participating in the development, either through debt and/or equity. Final discussions are planned with each of the financiers in coming weeks. Proposals under discussion include
equity/debt finance packages and cornerstone investment into the project company.

Cash and Liquid Assets

At the end of the September 2014 Quarter, Manas held cash reserves of approximately $1.5M as well as listed securities of approximately $300,000.

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.
