GreenRoc Mining Plc: Commencement of Trading on AIM

Alba Mineral Resources plc (AIM: ALBA) is pleased to confirm the admission to trading on AIM ("Admission") of GreenRoc Mining Plc ("GreenRoc") following Alba's divestment of its Greenlandic mining assets to GreenRoc.

GreenRoc's ordinary shares began trading on AIM this morning under the TIDM GROC with an implied market capitalisation of GBP11.1 million having raised gross funds of GBP5.12 million. Alba is the majority shareholder of GreenRoc with a 54 per cent. stake.

GreenRoc has acquired all the Greenlandic mining assets of Alba being the Thule Black Sands Ilmenite Project, the Amitsoq Graphite Project, the Melville Bay Iron Project and the Inglefield Multi-Element Project (the "Greenland Projects"). GreenRoc intends to progress exploration and development activities in respect of the Greenland Projects with the aim of securing a mining licence and commencing commercial production at one or more of the projects within the earliest practicable timescale.

George Frangeskides, Executive Chairman, commented : "I am delighted to see GreenRoc trading on AIM this morning. For a long time, we have strongly believed that moving our Greenland assets into a Greenland-dedicated listed vehicle is in the best long-term interests of Alba and its shareholders. With significant backing for GreenRoc demonstrated by the GBP5.12 million raised on IPO, and with a management team possessing the expertise required to fast-track project development, we believe that our Greenland Projects are now strongly positioned for growth. As the majority shareholder in GreenRoc, Alba stands to benefit greatly from that."

"With our Greenland Projects now divested, we look forward to focusing on the development of our UK and Irish precious and base metal assets."
