Khan Receives Notice of Delisting from TSX and Announces Conditional Approval for Trading on the CNSX

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 12, 2012) - Khan Resources Inc. (TSX:KRI) ("Khan" or the "Company") announced today that it has received a notice from the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") that the TSX has decided to delist the Company's securities effective at the close of market on May 11, 2012. The TSX has determined that the Company has failed to meet the continued listing requirements of the TSX, on the basis of its determination that the Company: 1) has ceased to be actively engaged in ongoing business, 2) discontinued or divested a substantial portion of operations, 3) did not spend at least $350,000 on exploration and/or development work in the most recent year, and 4) has discontinued or materially changed the nature of its business. These determinations are as a result of the Company putting its Dornod uranium project in Mongolia on a care and maintenance status and initiating an international arbitration action for US$200 million in January 2011 against the Government of Mongolia and its state-owned uranium company, MonAtom LLC.

Trading in the Company's common shares will continue on the TSX for 30 days before delisting. The Company is pleased to announce that its common shares have been conditionally approved for trading on the Canadian National Stock Exchange ("CNSX"). While there can be no assurance that the CNSX listing will be completed prior to the TSX delisting, the Company is hopeful the formal approval by the CNSX will be completed in the near future and there will be no disruption to trading in Khan shares during the change-over. The Company will inform shareholders of the details of the transition when determined.
