NOT FOR RELEASE, PUBLICATION OR DISTRIBUTION IN WHOLE OR IN PART IN, INTO OR FROM ANY JURISDICTION WHERE TO DO SO WOULD CONSTITUTE A VIOLATION OF THE RELEVANT LAWS OF SUCH JURISDICTION

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

20 January 2012

RECOMMENDED CASH OFFER FOR KALAHARI MINERALS PLC ("Kalahari") BY TAURUS MINERAL LIMITED ("Taurus") (A COMPANY FORMED AT THE DIRECTION OF CGNPC URANIUM RESOURCES CO., LTD ("CGNPC-URC") AND THE CHINA-AFRICA DEVELOPMENT FUND ("CADFund"))

Offer update

On 8 December 2011 CGNPC-URC announced that the boards of Kalahari and CGNPC-URC had reached agreement on the terms of a recommended cash offer for the entire issued and to be issued share capital of Kalahari (the "Offer"), the full terms and conditions to which were set out in the offer document issued by Taurus on 5 January 2012 (the "Offer Document").

Level of Offer acceptances

As at 1:00 p.m. (London time) on 19 January 2012, Taurus had received valid acceptances from Kalahari Shareholders in respect of 74,811,264 Kalahari Shares representing approximately 29.4 per cent. of the existing issued share capital of Kalahari. These acceptances include acceptances received in respect of 9,518,813 Kalahari Shares, representing approximately 3.7 per cent. of the existing issued share capital of Kalahari, which were subject to irrevocable undertakings procured by Taurus from the Kalahari Directors.

As at 1:00 p.m. (London time) on 19 January 2012, Taurus held non-binding letters of intent to accept the Offer from Henderson Alternative Investment Advisor Limited and Henderson Global Investors Limited (together "Henderson"), for which acceptance had not yet been received, relating to 3,538,716 Kalahari Shares, representing approximately 1.4 per cent. of the existing issued share capital of Kalahari.

The terms of the Kalahari Directors' irrevocable and the non-binding letters of intent received from Henderson are set out in paragraph 3 of Appendix 5 to the Offer Document.

Deadline for receipt of Offer acceptances

The Offer, which remains subject to the terms set out in the Offer Document, will remain open for acceptances until 1.00 p.m. (London time) on 2 February 2012.

ASIC Relief and Extract Bid

On 8 December 2011, ASIC made declarations under section 655A(1)(b) of the Australian Corporations Act modifying the application of certain provisions of Chapter 6 of the Australian Corporations Act to Taurus, Miraculum, CADFund, CGNPC-URC and other named related bodies corporate of those entities ("ASIC Relief"). Under these declarations, Taurus may acquire a relevant interest in more than 20 per cent. of Extract Shares in connection with the acquisition of Kalahari Shares under the Offer without the acquisition resulting in a breach of section 606(1) of the Australian Corporations Act.

Under section 608(3) of the Australian Corporations Act, a person having a relevant interest in more than 20 per cent. of a company's voting shares also has a relevant interest in any securities held by that company or in which that company otherwise has a relevant interest.

Earlier today, Taurus filed a Form 603 notice with the ASX, confirming that, as Taurus had acquired a relevant interest in 78,349,980 Kalahari Shares representing 30.8 per cent. of Kalahari's existing issued share capital, Taurus also has a relevant interest in the 107,342,087 Extract Shares held by Kalahari (constituting 42.74 per cent. of the total number of Extract Shares on an undiluted basis).

Taurus' relevant interest in 78,349,980 Kalahari Shares comprised valid acceptances from Kalahari Shareholders in respect of 74,811,264 Kalahari Shares and a further 3,538,716 Kalahari Shares which are subject to non-binding letters of intent to accept the Offer.

Terms and expressions used in this announcement shall, unless the context otherwise requires, have the same meanings as given to them in the Offer Document.

Opening Position and Dealing Disclosure Requirements under the Code

Under Rule 8.3(a) of the Code, any person who is interested in 1 per cent. or more of any class of relevant securities of an offeree company or of any paper offeror (being any offeror other than an offeror in respect of which it has been announced that its offer is, or is likely to be, solely in cash) must make an Opening Position Disclosure following the commencement of the offer period and, if later, following the announcement in which any paper offeror is first identified. An Opening Position Disclosure must contain details of the person's interests and short positions in, and rights to subscribe for, any relevant securities of each of (i) the offeree company and (ii) any paper offeror(s). An Opening Position Disclosure by a person to whom Rule 8.3(a) applies must be made by no later than 3.30 pm (London time) on the 10(th) business day following the commencement of the offer period and, if appropriate, by no later than 3.30 pm (London time) on the 10(th) business day following the announcement in which any paper offeror is first identified. Relevant persons who deal in the relevant securities of the offeree company or of a paper offeror prior to the deadline for making an Opening Position Disclosure must instead make a Dealing Disclosure.

Under Rule 8.3(b) of the Code, any person who is, or becomes, interested in 1 per cent. or more of any class of relevant securities of the offeree company or of any paper offeror must make a Dealing Disclosure if the person deals in any relevant securities of the offeree company or of any paper offeror. A Dealing Disclosure must contain details of the dealing concerned and of the person's interests and short positions in, and rights to subscribe for, any relevant securities of each of (i) the offeree company and (ii) any paper offeror, save to the extent that these details have previously been disclosed under Rule 8. A Dealing Disclosure by a person to whom Rule 8.3(b) applies must be made by no later than 3.30 pm (London time) on the business day following the date of the relevant dealing.

If two or more persons act together pursuant to an agreement or understanding, whether formal or informal, to acquire or control an interest in relevant securities of an offeree company or a paper offeror, they will be deemed to be a single person for the purpose of Rule 8.3.

Opening Position Disclosures must also be made by the offeree company and by any offeror and Dealing Disclosures must also be made by the offeree company, by any offeror and by any persons acting in concert with any of them (see Rules 8.1, 8.2 and 8.4). Details of the offeree and offeror companies in respect of whose relevant securities Opening Position Disclosures and Dealing Disclosures must be made can be found in the Disclosure Table on the Panel's website at www.thetakeoverpanel.org.uk, including details of the number of relevant securities in issue, when the offer period commenced and when any offeror was first identified. If you are in any doubt as to whether you are required to make an Opening Position Disclosure or a Dealing Disclosure, you should contact the Panel's Market Surveillance Unit on +44 (0)20 7638 0129.
