FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

14 February 2019

TUNGSTEN CORPORATION PLC

("Tungsten" or the "Company")

Resignation of CEO

Tungsten Corporation (AIM: TUNG) announces that Richard Hurwitz, Chief Executive Officer, has informed the Board of his resignation from the Board with immediate effect. He will leave the Company on 15 February 2019.

Tungsten has appointed headhunters to identify a new CEO and expects to make an appointment in March 2019. In the meantime, Tony Bromovsky has moved from Non-Executive to Executive Chairman on an interim basis and David Williams, Chief Financial Officer, will oversee day-to-day operations. As announced on 11 February 2019, Vivienne Maclachlan has also joined the Board as a Non-Executive Director.

Trading for November and December 2018 was in line with expectations and demonstrates the progress being made through the Operating Review. Unaudited revenue for the two months was approximately GBP6.3 million and EBITDA was positive. Net cash at 31 December 2018 was GBP1.8 million, growing to GBP2.5 million at 31 January 2019. The Company is planning to release details of its third quarter trading to 31 January 2019 on 25 February 2019. Tungsten reiterates its full-year FY19 outlook, including revenue expectation of GBP36 million to GBP36.5 million, EBITDA profit for the full financial year and sufficient capital to deliver current plans.

As reported in Tungsten's Interim Results on 13 December 2018, the new and refreshed Board, together with senior management, are currently undertaking an operating review addressing all aspects of Tungsten's business (the "Operating Review"). The Operating Review has already substantiated many of Tungsten's strengths. It has also clearly identified a number of growth inhibitors and demonstrated how they can be rapidly and effectively addressed. The review is now focused on the steps required to accelerate near-term revenue and profitability growth. Significant progress has already been made towards this and more is currently being done. The Board of Tungsten expects to complete the Operating Review by April 2019 and thereafter implement the recommended outcomes in close collaboration with the new CEO.

Tony Bromovsky, Chairman, commented:

"The Board wishes to thank Rick for his valuable contribution to the Company since his appointment as CEO in 2015 and we wish him well in his future endeavours."
