VANCOUVER, June 10, 2013 /CNW/ - Mediterranean Resources Ltd. (TSX: MNR;
Frankfurt: MHM1) ("Mediterranean") wishes to advise the market that it
has received an unsolicited non-binding offer from an ASX-listed
explorer with a view to undertaking a merger with this company. The
assets of the Australian company consist of several exploration
properties and cash.
This entity has also mooted a financing (by the entity to MNR) of
$250,000 (in either a loan or equity) in the short-term.
As with all such offers, the Board of Directors is taking this proposal
into consideration and balancing it against other alternatives that
have appeared in recent weeks.
Meanwhile the company is advancing with the previously announced IPO of
its main Turkish subsidiary Akdeniz Resources Madencilik on the Venture
Board (GIP) of the Istanbul Stock Exchange. Negotiations on this issue
have been advancing with the Capital Markets Board (SPK) in recent
weeks. Timetabling for the issue shall begin shortly.
Signed on behalf of the Board of Directors.
