(“Vast” or the “Company”)


Vast Resources plc, the AIM-listed mining company, notes that both the agreement on the Chiadzwa Community diamond project with Katanga Mining (Pvt) Ltd, ZCDC and the expected finance facility for US$13,500,000 (net) were not signed last week as anticipated.

The delay in signing the diamond agreement is purely a matter of availability due to international travel commitments of the relevant stakeholders.  Discussions in line with previous expectations, save on timing, continue with both parties and the Company looks forward to updating the market as and when there is anything further to report.
