Steven Poulton, Chief Executive of Altus, commented:

“The updated JORC 2012 resource statement as announced by ASX listed Canyon Resources testifies to the potential world class nature of the Minim Martap bauxite project. Our existing Birsok bauxite project is located contiguous with Minim Martap and is presently the subject of a joint venture with Canyon. Drilling by Canyon at Birsok has delineated a number of high grade bauxite plateaux with results including 48.8% Al over 6m with low reactive silica of 1.8%. Discussions are underway with Canyon in respect of vending the joint venture into Canyon. Altus presently holds 8,000,000 shares in Canyon which have a current market value of £1.0M / C$1.7M. We look forward to updating shareholders on the discussions in due course.”
