Half year trading statement

Further to the trading statement of the 10(th) June, EME announces a trading update for the half year to 30(th) June.

The Company continues discussions with its share, loan and warrant holders with a view to a short term injection of cash to enable the continuation of operations. These discussions held during June, have been sufficiently positive to embolden the Company to proceed with additional surveying of the exploration licences under its control in Edo State, Nigeria. Accordingly, the Directors will be in Nigeria during July to organise and join in with a scouting expedition to determine the optimal area for a low cost core hole drilling exercise.

A further statement will be made towards the end of September to coincide with the Company's interim results.
