AURASIAN MINERALS RECEIVES US $750,000 IN RELATION TO DISPOSAL OF WAMUM PROJECT

Aurasian Minerals plc (“Aurasian” or the “Company”) is pleased to confirm that funds have been received in relation to the sale of its stake in the Wamum Project located in Papua New Guinea.

The $750,000 will be used, subject to the successful completion of the proposed acquisition of Moroccan Minerals announced on 1 December 2015, to fund the Chadine Project in Serbia and will enable the company to focus on the initial phase of drilling which is expected in the first half of 2016.

Due diligence is progressing well on the purchase of Moroccan Minerals and paper work to Moroccan Minerals shareholders is expected to be posted prior to the New Year. Aurasian is hopeful to close the Moroccan Minerals transaction early in 2016.
