Alset Completes Trenching and Channel Sampling at Champion Graphite

THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - July 27, 2016) - Alset Energy Corp. (TSX VENTURE:ION) ("Alset" or "the Company") is pleased to announce the completion of a trenching program at their Champion graphite property. The program was designed to expose areas of interest where the Company previously identified flake graphite that graded from 1.7% to 8.98% carbon (See PR dated May 25, 2016). Mapping of the trenches has been completed and has confirmed the presence of disseminated to semi-massive sections of flake graphite. A total of 226m of channel sampling has been collected and sent to Activation Laboratories for analyses. The exposed bedrock will also allow for mini-bulk samples for metallurgical purposes after the initial results have been received and compiled.

The Company has also granted 300,000 options to consultants of the Company exercisable at $0.39 for a period of 5 years subject to the Company's stock option plan and TSX.V approval.

Clinton Barr (P.Geo.), V.P. Exploration for Alset Energy Corp, is the qualified person responsible for this release.

On behalf of the Board of Directors of Alset Energy Corp.,

Stephen Stares, President
