"The Invecture take-over offer provided $2 million of cash from an initial placement closed on October 2, 2013 and provides liquidity to shareholders through a cash offer at a significant premium to the spot price prior to the deal announcement. The Invecture offer has the unanimous support of our Board of Directors and we recommend that shareholders tender their shares."

About Kimber

Kimber owns mineral concessions covering in excess of 39,000 hectares in the prospective Sierra Madre gold-silver belt, including the Monterde property, where three gold-silver mineral resources have already been defined. The most advanced of these, the Carmen deposit, has been extensively drilled and has undergone detailed geologic modeling. The completion of the Updated Preliminary Economic Assessment for Monterde in 2011 represented a significant step forward for Kimber and supported further evaluation and more advanced economic studies at the Monterde deposits, with the recently updated mineral resource estimate for the Carmen deposit representing a component of those activities.
