TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 10, 2011) -Khan Resources Inc. (TSX:KRI) ("Khan" or "the Company") announced today that it has filed its financial statements and management's discussion and analysis for the three and six month periods ended March 31, 2011 on SEDAR and has posted these documents to its website

From a financial perspective, the Company's net loss for the three month period and six month period ended March 31, 2011 was $0.02 and $0.02 per share respectively compared to losses of $0.02 and $0.04 for the same periods in the prior year. During the second quarter, the Company also subscribed for 3 million units of Macusani Yellowcake Inc.

The Company's investment in YEL at March 31, 2011 was $8.1 million based on period end market values and $4.3 million based on cost.

Significant developments during the second quarter included the filing on January 10, 2011 of an international arbitration action against the Government of Mongolia for its unlawful and expropriatory treatment of Khan in respect of the Dornod deposit. The Tribunal will consist of three well-known and highly respected international arbitrators: Mr. L. Yves Fortier of Canada (appointed by Khan); Mr. Bernard Hanotiau of Belgium (appointed by Mongolia); and Mr. David A.R. Williams of New Zealand (appointed as the presiding arbitrator by Messrs. Fortier and Hanotiau). The Tribunal is expected to convene an in-person hearing to discuss the procedure by which the arbitration will proceed in the very near future.

In addition, subsequent to the end of the second quarter, Khan and ARMZ entered into settlement discussions in an attempt to resolve Khan's $300 million lawsuit against ARMZ. The discussions were not successful and Khan will reintroduce a motion in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice to dispense with or order substitute service in respect of the suit.
