Bannerman Receives Shareholder Approval for New RCF Convertible Note and Plans to Proceed With the Pilot Plant Program

PERTH, AUSTRALIA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/19/14 -- Bannerman Resources Limited (ASX:BMN)(TSX:BAN)(NAMIBIAN:BMN) ("Bannerman" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that at the Extraordinary General Meeting ("EGM") of the Company held today, shareholders overwhelmingly voted in favour of the A$4 million in funding to be provided by Resource Capital Fund VI L.P. by way of a new convertible note which will enable the Company to proceed with the pilot plant program at its Etango Project.

The full results are available on Bannerman's website at www.bannermanresources.com and on SEDAR (www.sedar.com).

The Company intends to issue a drawdown notice immediately, in line with the previously stated target of commissioning the pilot plant in the December quarter. The granting of construction and supply contracts remains subject to obtaining the requisite environmental approvals from the Ministry of Environment and Tourism.

Bannerman's Chief Executive Officer, Len Jubber said:

The favourable outcome of the EGM signals recognition of the value of the continued support of RCF as Bannerman continues to pursue its strategy of positioning the Etango project for fast track development in a rising uranium price environment. The growing number of production cutbacks and project delays / deferrals, coupled with the ongoing construction of reactors, is increasing the likelihood of an upcoming supply deficit, and associated increase in the uranium price.

Bannerman's advanced Etango Project remains one of the very few globally significant uranium projects that can be realistically be brought into production in the medium term."
