Borneo Resource Investments Repays Convertible Notes

BOTHELL, WA--(Marketwired - Jun 9, 2014) - Borneo Resource Investments Ltd. (OTCQB: BRNE) (the "Company" or "Borneo"), a mining company that mines gold and develops producing gold mining properties in Indonesia, today announced it has repaid in cash its third and only remaining convertible note with Asher Enterprises, Inc., with a principal amount of $42,500, before any conversion of the note into common stock.

Borneo had previously announced that it had repaid its two prior convertible notes to Asher Enterprises including one in January 2014 in the principal amount of $37,500 and another in April 2014 in the principal amount of $32,500, both before the conversion feature for each of those loans was triggered. As a result, Borneo currently has no remaining notes with Asher Enterprises. On June 2, 2014, Asher Enterprises filed a Form 13G with the Securities and Exchange Commission indicating it did not beneficially own any shares and was not entitled to shares of the Company's stock.

"We are thankful to Asher Enterprises for the support they have given our company. Their funding helped Borneo become a revenue-generating mining company with gross profits. We are generating cash flows based on two gold mining properties currently in production, which should increase with two more gold mining properties slated to begin production in the third quarter of 2014," stated Borneo CEO Nils Ollquist.

Borneo has also amended the terms of a warrant issued to its Chief Financial Officer. The warrant, which was issued on December 17, 2013, was exercisable immediately from the date of grant until it expired at the end of its five-year term. In accordance with the amended terms, the warrant may not be exercised until December 17, 2016. The other terms of warrant remain unchanged.
