CALGARY, AB--(Marketwired - June 24, 2016) - Niko Resources Ltd. ("Niko" or the "Company") (TSX: NKO) announces that, further to its news release of June 10, 2016 regarding its solicitation of consents (the "Consent Solicitation") to amend the trust indenture (the "Indenture") governing its outstanding 7% convertible senior unsecured notes due December 31, 2017 (the "Notes"), it has received consents from holders of the requisite amount of the Notes to amend the Indenture.
