Tower Resources plc

Completion of Subscription and Director's Dealings

Tower Resources plc (the "Company" or "Tower" (TRP.L, TRP LN)), the AIM listed oil and gas company with its focus on Africa, is pleased to announce that, further to the Company's announcement earlier today outlining the proposed subscription (the "Subscription") for 15 million new Ordinary Shares (the "Subscription Shares"), the Company has successfully placed 15,000,000 new Ordinary Shares and raised gross proceeds totalling GBP150,000 at a Subscription Price of 1.00 pence per share. The Subscription Price of 1.00 pence per share represents a premium of 17.6% to the closing mid-price on 20 June 2019.

As previously disclosed, the purpose of the Subscription is principally to fund working capital requirements as financing negotiations for the Thali license and drilling of the NJOM-3 well scheduled for Q3 2019 continue.

Pursuant to the Subscription, Jeremy Asher, Chairman and CEO, has entered into an Agreement (the "Subscription Agreement") to subscribe for 15 million new Ordinary Shares in the Subscription for GBP150,000 as detailed below.

The participation of Jeremy Asher (the "Director Related Party") constitutes a related party transaction in accordance with AIM Rule 13. Accordingly, Peter Taylor and David M Thomas, acting as the independent Directors, consider, having consulted with the Company's Nominated Adviser, SP Angel Corporate Finance LLP, that the terms of the Director Related Party participation in the Subscription is fair and reasonable insofar as the Company's shareholders are concerned.

The following table sets out the Directors' shareholdings and percentage interests in the issued share capital of the Company following completion of the subscription.

Tower Resources Cameroon S.A, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tower Resources plc, holds a 100% interest in the shallow water Thali (formerly known as "Dissoni") Production Sharing Contract (PSC), in the Rio del Rey basin, offshore Cameroon. Tower was awarded the PSC on 15 September 2015 for an Initial Exploration Period of 3 years.

The Thali PSC covers an area of 119.2 km(2), with water depths ranging from 8 to 48 metres, and lies in the prolific Rio del Rey basin, in the eastern part of the Niger Delta. The Rio del Rey basin has, to date, produced over one billion barrels of oil and has estimated remaining reserves of 1.2 billion barrels of oil equivalent ("boe"), primarily within depths of less than 2,000 metres. The Rio del Rey is a sub-basin of the Niger Delta, an area in which over 34.5 billion barrels of oil has been discovered, with 2.5 billion boe attributed to the Cameroonian section.

An independent Reserve Report conducted by Oilfield International Limited (OIL) have highlighted the contingent and potential resources on the Thali licence and the associated Expected Monetary Value (EMV) as follows:

-- Gross mean contingent resources of 18 MMbbls of oil across the proven Njonji-1 and Njonji-2 fault blocks;

-- Gross mean prospective resources of 20 MMbbls of oil across the Njonji South and Njonji South-West fault blocks;

-- Gross mean prospective resources of 111 MMbbls of oil across four identified prospects located in the Dissoni South and Idenao areas in the northern part of the Thali licence;

-- Calculated EMV10s of US$118 million for the contingent resources, and US$82 million for the prospective resources, respectively.

In accordance with the guidelines for the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange, Dr Mark Enfield, BSc, PhD, FGS, Advisor to the Board of Tower Resources plc, who has over 30 years' experience in the oil & gas industry, is the qualified person that has reviewed and approved the technical content of this announcement.
