SouthGobi Resources Announces Extension of Delisting Review by TSX Until September 30, 2015

HONG KONG, CHINA--(Marketwired - Aug. 30, 2015) - SouthGobi Resources Ltd. (TSX:SGQ) (HKSE:1878) ("SouthGobi" or the "Company") today announces confirmation of the extension to the Toronto Stock Exchange (the "TSX") delisting review until September 30, 2015.

As announced by the Company on July 29, 2015, a meeting of the Continued Listing Committee of TSX (the "Committee") was scheduled on August 25, 2015 and their decision was expected no later than August 28, 2015.

On August 28, 2015 the Company received confirmation from the Committee that it will schedule a review meeting on September 28, 2015 and will defer its delisting decision as to whether the Company has met the listing requirements of the TSX until September 30, 2015.

The Company believes the extension will provide sufficient time for the implementation of the Proposed Funding Plan described in the Management's Discussion and Analysis (the "MD&A") issued on August 13, 2015, which will allow it to meet its short term financing needs, and that it will be compliant with the continued listing requirements of the TSX; however, no assurance can be provided that the Proposed Funding Plan will be successfully implemented or to the outcome of the remedial delisting review when it occurs and the Company's Common Shares may become subject to delisting from the TSX.

If, at any time, the TSX becomes aware of additional negative developments such that the continued trading or listing of the Company's securities is contrary to the public interest, an expedited review will be initiated.
