TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 02/05/13 -- Asian Mineral Resources Limited ("AMR") (TSX VENTURE:ASN) is pleased to announce that it has filed a preliminary prospectus in respect of a proposed shareholder rights offering (the "Rights Offering"). The proceeds from the Rights Offering will be used by AMR to fund capital expenditures for the construction of, and other development activities for, the Ban Phuc Nickel Project and for working capital purposes.

Under the terms of the Rights Offering, AMR shareholders will be given the opportunity, pro rata with their existing ownership, to acquire common shares ("Common Shares") of AMR for $0.05 per share (the "Subscription Price"). Each AMR shareholder will receive one right ("Right") for each Common Share held and 2.10083 Rights will entitle the holder thereof to subscribe for one Common Share. AMR shareholders that fully exercise their Rights will be entitled to subscribe for additional Common Shares, if available, that were not subscribed for by other Rights holders. The Rights will be exercisable for at least 21 days following the date of mailing of the final prospectus.

AMR currently expects the final prospectus relating to the Rights Offering to be mailed to Shareholders eligible to participate in the Rights Offering by early March, 2013 and the Rights Offering to be completed before the end of April, 2013.

In connection with the Rights Offering, AMR's largest shareholder, Pala Investments Limited ("Pala") has agreed, pursuant to a standby purchase agreement, to purchase at the Subscription Price, all of the Common Shares, if any, not otherwise purchased pursuant to the exercise of Rights under the Rights Offering at the expiration date.

The Rights Offering will be made only in the provinces of British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Ontario, New Brunswick and Newfoundland and, subject to compliance with applicable law, certain other jurisdictions where such offering is permitted to be made (the "Eligible Jurisdictions"). The Rights Offering is not an offering of Common Shares for sale in any jurisdiction outside the Eligible Jurisdictions. The final prospectus will disclose the procedures and restrictions relating to participation in the Rights Offering by shareholders resident outside of the Eligible Jurisdictions.

The record date and the expiry date of the Rights Offering will be determined prior to the filing of a final prospectus. AMR will make a further announcement with respect to these matters at the time of the filing of the final prospectus.
