Savannah Resources Plc

Secondary Listing on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange


Savannah Resources plc (AIM: SAV, FWB: AFM and SWB: SAV) ('Savannah' or the 'Company'), the AIM quoted resource development company, is pleased to announce that it has successfully applied for a secondary listing of the Company's ordinary shares of 1p each ('Ordinary Shares') for trading on the Quotation Board Segment of the Open Market of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange ('Secondary Listing'), commencing at 9am CET, 4 September 2018.  The Board believes that the Secondary Listing, which was facilitated by Steubing AG, a leading securities trading bank based in Frankfurt, will increase the Company's investor and corporate visibility in Europe, particularly in Germany, which is one of the continent's largest consumers of lithium.  This is particularly relevant with regards to the Company's focus on the advancement of the Mina do Barroso Lithium Project in northern Portugal, which has already proved to be Western Europe's largest new spodumene Lithium discovery.


David Archer, Chief Executive Officer of Savannah said today, "The secondary-listing on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange will increase the Company's capital markets and corporate visibility in mainland Europe.  We have a portfolio of exciting projects at various stages of development including the Mina do Barroso Lithium Project in northern Portugal, copper projects in Oman and the Mutamba Mineral Sands Project in Mozambique.  Europe and particularly Germany, is a major consumer of lithium and demand fundamentals going forward remain strong.  With Mina do Barroso being the largest spodumene lithium discovery in Western Europe we anticipate greater demand for Savannah's shares and this Secondary Listing will help facilitate investment by European investors in the Company.


"With the Mina do Barroso Feasibility Study currently underway, which is fully funded following our recent fundraise of £12.5 million, we remain focused on fast tracking our Portuguese project into production during 2020.  We are confident that significant further upside exists, with excellent potential to increase the Mineral Resource Estimate in due course."


The Company's Ordinary Shares have been admitted to the Secondary Listing under the symbol AFM.  Following the Secondary Listing, the Company's issued share capital will continue to trade on the London Stock Exchange (AIM: SAV) as well as the Börse Stuttgart (SWB: SAV).
