Pathfinder Minerals Plc

("Pathfinder" or the "Company")

Further re. enforcement of English costs orders

Pursuant to orders by the English High Court on 23 August 2016 for the sale of a total of 19,824,000 shares in the Company held by JV Consultores Internacionais Limitada (a company controlled by Jacinto Veloso) and Diogo Cavaco (together the "Defendants") (the "Orders for Sale"), Pathfinder announces that it has sold all of the 11,012,000  shares formerly held by JV Consultores Internacionais Limitada  for a consideration of 0.8325 pence per share, generating gross proceeds of £91,675 for the Company. The proceeds will further aid Pathfinder in pursuing the recovery of its mining licences.

The Orders for Sale were granted as a result of the Defendants' failure to comply with any of the orders for costs awarded against them in respect of the English High Court proceedings brought by Pathfinder in 2012.

As a result of the sale, the Defendants no longer hold any shares in the Company. The sale of these existing shares does not dilute the Company's issued share capital.
