Renewal of Exploration Licences

Altona (AIM: ANR), a coal exploration company focused on South Australia, is pleased to announce that its joint venture company, Arckaringa Coal Chemical Joint Venture Co Pty Ltd, has been granted the renewal of its three Exploration Licences for its tenements, Westfield (EL5676), Wintinna (EL5677) and Murloocoppie (EL5678).  The new licences expire on 6 June 2019. 

Altona has reduced the size of EL5677, removing an area that the Board considers to be least likely to contain economically extractable coal.

All Exploration Licenses issued by the South Australia government have a minimum expenditure target. The minimum expenditure targets are as follows:

EL5676                        AUD 960,000

EL5677                        AUD 880,000

EL5678                        AUD 400,000

This announcement contains inside information for the purposes of Article 7 of Regulation (EU) 596/2014.
