   30 May 2019 
 
   Vast Resources plc 
 
   ("Vast" or the "Company") 
 
   Subscription to raise GBP900,000 before costs 
 
   Vast Resources plc, the AIM-listed mining company, is pleased to 
announce that it has raised in aggregate GBP900,000 before costs through 
a placing (the "Placing") of 775,862,068 ordinary shares of 0.1p in the 
Company (Ordinary Shares) at a price of 0.116p per Ordinary Share (the 
"Placing Shares").  The Placing was undertaken by SVS Securities plc, 
joint broker to the Company. 
 
   The Placing Shares were issued under existing authorities available to 
the Board relating to the Baita Plai Polymetallic Mine ("Baita Plai") 
and for general corporate purposes. The cash raised from the Placing has 
been calculated to be sufficient to meet all the Company's financing 
needs in connection with its activities in Romania and general working 
capital until drawdown of the Loan Finance, as defined below. 
 
   As announced on 29 April 2019, the Company has received a draft term 
sheet containing the material indicative terms from a Swiss bank for a 
loan finance of up to US$10 million. This is to be applied in connection 
with the Company's Romanian projects including full repayment of the 
US$4 million plus accrued interest by the Company to Mercuria.  While 
due diligence on the provision of the Swiss bank loan finance and/or any 
equivalent (the "Loan Finance") progresses, the Company plans to incur 
some of the necessary pre-production expenditure for Baita Plai in 
advance of the receipt of the Loan Finance.  This will significantly 
reduce the lead time up to commencement of production. 
 
   The pre-production expenditure will include the commencement of the 
installation of a seven-kilometre tailings pipe to the tailings dam and, 
as is required in the Company's licence, the installation of a new and 
independent electricity supply at Baita Plai in addition to the supply 
the Company has already installed. Expenditure will also include the 
cost of the independent report from SRK Consulting (UK) Ltd as mentioned 
in the Company's announcement of 28 May 2019. The money raised from the 
Placing will be applied for these purposes plus for general expenses at 
Baita Plai and for general corporate purposes. 
 
   Admission of and Dealings in the Placing and Subscription Shares 
 
   The issue of the Placing Shares is conditional on their admission to 
trading on AIM ("Admission").  Application is being made for the Placing 
Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM and it is expected that 
Admission will become effective and dealing in the Placing Shares will 
commence on or around 4 June 2019.  The Placing Shares will rank pari 
passu with existing Ordinary Shares. 
 
   Following Admission, the total issued share capital of the Company will 
be 8,721,033,379.  The above figure of 8,721,033,379 may be used by 
shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they will 
determine if they are required to notify their interest in Vast under 
the FCA's Disclosure and Transparency Rule.
