TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Aug. 21, 2015) - Khan Resources Inc. (CSE:KRI) ("Khan" or "the Company") announced today that it has filed its financial statements and management's discussion and analysis for the nine months ended June 30, 2015 on SEDAR and has posted these documents to its website

Significant Events and Current Status

International arbitration award - On March 2, 2015 the international arbitration tribunal rendered an award to Khan as compensation for the Government of Mongolia's illegal actions in relation to the cancellation of Khan's uranium licenses in 2009. As of the date of the approval of this MD&A, August 20, 2015, the award aggregates to approximately $105 million (US) with interest currently accruing at a rate of 2.78% or $7,256 per day. In Canadian dollars at August 20, the value of the total award was $137 million.

On June 12, 2015 the Company filed a petition for confirmation of its international arbitration award in the US District Court in the District of Columbia. When confirmed, the award will be executable in the US as a court judgement and the Company can begin a process of seizure of non-immune Mongolian sovereign assets. The Government of Mongolia has until Sept 4, 2015 to respond to the petition.

On July 9, 2015, the Government of Mongolia filed a notice in the French Court of Appeal in Paris for annulment of the international arbitration Award. The Government of Mongolia has given no indication on what basis it seeks to annul the Award and has until Dec. 8, 2015 to file their first submission. Khan believes that this attempt to annul the Award will not succeed and is merely an attempt to delay for reasons of its domestic political agenda, the inevitable payment of the Award that is now due and payable.

The Company issued 5 million common shares at a price of $0.40 per share and received aggregate gross proceeds of $2 million. The proceeds of the private placement will be used to advance proceedings to enforce the collection of the arbitration award.

During the nine months ended June 30, 2015 the Company has also received proceeds of $480,000 from the exercise of share options by its Directors, Officers and employees.

Cash balances are also being supplemented by the sale of investments.
