Khan Files Second Quarter 2013 Financial Results

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - May 17, 2013) - Khan Resources Inc. (CNSX:KRI) ("Khan" or "the Company") announced today that it has filed its financial statements and management discussion and analysis for the six months ended March 31, 2013 on SEDAR and has posted these documents to its website

Highlights for the quarter include:

  • International arbitration action against the Government of Mongolia - Submissions on the merits and damages arising from the Mongolian Government's expropriatory and unlawful treatment of Khan were filed by the Company on December 7, 2012. With that filing, Khan's claim has been revised upwards from $200 to $326 million. The December 7, 2012 submissions were pursuant to the Tribunal's ruling on July 26, 2012 which dismissed all of Mongolia's objections to the continuance of the suit. A Statement of Defense and Counterclaim by the Respondents was submitted to the Tribunal on April 5, 2013. Additional submissions by both the Claimants and Respondents will be submitted in the summer and fall of 2013. The formal hearing by the Tribunal on the merits and damages for the case is scheduled for November 11 through November 15, 2013.
  • Atomredmetzoloto ("ARMZ") litigation - On April 2, 2013 the Court of Appeal for Ontario dismissed Khan's appeal to validate, substitute or dispense with service of Khan's Statement of Claim. ARMZ had avoided service of the Statement of Claim as the Russian Ministry of Justice had invoked Section 13 of the Hague Convention which allowed Russia to refuse to serve ARMZ as a matter of Russian sovereignty or security. Khan is reviewing the decision and is considering the options available to it. The next stage of appeal would be the Supreme Court of Canada.
  • Khan holds 15.5 million common shares of Macusani Yellowcake Inc. ("Macusani") which represents 9.7% of the 159.5 million Macusani outstanding common shares. The value of the Company's investment in Macusani as at March 31, 2013 was $1,708,000, a decrease of $466,000 from its value at September 30, 2012.
