Khan Files Third Quarter 2012 Financial Results

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 10, 2012) - Khan Resources Inc. (CNSX:KRI) ("Khan" or "the Company") announced today that it has filed its financial statements and management's discussion and analysis for the three and nine months ended June 30, 2012 on SEDAR and has posted these documents to its website

Highlights for the quarter include:

  • On July 26, 2012 the Tribunal hearing the Company's $200 million international arbitration action against the Government of Mongolia ruled entirely in Khan's favour on matters of jurisdiction and has dismissed all of Mongolia's objections to the continuance of the suit. The action will now progress to the phase in which the panel will rule as to the merits of the arbitral claims and the amount of damages suffered by Khan arising from the Mongolian Government's expropriatory and unlawful treatment of Khan in relation to the Dornod uranium deposit located in northeastern Mongolia.

  • On June 30, 2012, the Company recognized non-cash impairment losses of $15.9 million that have reduced all of the Company's tangible assets to their estimated recoverable values as at June 30, 2012. The Company concluded that it is highly unlikely that the exploration and mining licenses for the Dornod deposit will be renewed and returned. In conjunction with this determination, the Company also decided to close the Dornod Project Camp.

  • On Monday, May 14, 2012 the Company's common shares commenced trading through the facilities of the Canadian National Stock Exchange ("CNSX") under the symbol "KRI".

  • Regarding the $300 million lawsuit against Atomredmetzoloto JSC ("ARMZ"), the Company announced on April 20, 2012 that it has filed an appeal with the Court of Appeal for Ontario in relation to the March 12, 2012 decision of the Ontario Superior Court in favour of ARMZ. The appeal is scheduled to be heard on September 11, 2012.

  • On April 19, 2012, the Company announced the closing of a non-brokered private placement financing resulting in the issuance of 13,600,000 common shares at a price of $0.17 per common share for gross proceeds of $2,312,000. The Company plans to use the proceeds of the offering to advance the international arbitration case against the Government of Mongolia, for the lawsuit against ARMZ and for general corporate purposes.

  • The Company's interim financial statements have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ('IFRS") and in Canadian dollars ("CAD"). Comparative statements, previously prepared in US dollars under Canadian Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP"), have been adjusted for changes in the functional and reporting currencies of the Company and its subsidiaries and other IFRS adjustments.
