AgriMinco Completes Sale of Interest in Danakil Project

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 05/13/14 -- Further to press releases of March 19 and May 8 of 2014, AgriMinco Corp. (TSX VENTURE:ANO) ("AgriMinco" or "Company") is pleased to announce that Premier African Minerals Limited ("Premier") has today exercised the option to acquire AgriMinco's entire 30% interest in the Danakil Potash project, Ethiopia (the "Project").

The consideration payable by Premier to the Company on completion of the acquisition of the Project comprises:

(i) The cancellation of all the common shares of AgriMinco owned by Premier for no consideration. As at the date of this announcement, Premier is interested in 120,821,176 AgriMinco shares representing approximately 42% of AgriMinco's issued share capital with a value of C$1,812,317.64 based on the last closing price of AgriMinco shares of C0.015 per share on May 12, 2014, the last practicable date prior to the publication of this announcement.

(ii) Deliver and effect payment of debt settlement agreements in favour of the Company releasing the Company from an aggregate of C$2,265,819.50 in liabilities.

(iii) The issue to AgriMinco of new Premier ordinary shares with a value equal to C$1,000,000 based on the volume weighted average price per Premier ordinary share for the five trading days immediately prior to and following the option exercise. Based on the closing mid-market price of a Premier ordinary share of 0.975p on May 12, 2014, the last practicable date prior to the publication of this announcement, this would result in the issue of 55,847,589 new Premier ordinary shares.

In aggregate, the consideration on completion is estimated on present pricing at C$5,078,137.10.

Commenting on the transaction, Bruce Cumming, CEO, said: "Completion of this transaction has placed our company in a position of being free of all secured debt, significantly reduced our shares in issue and provides a source of funds into the immediate future whilst still retaining a small interest in the Danakil Project and allowing us to re-evaluate our remaining West African interests either with a view to further monetizing or developing those or any other opportunity."
