Suspension of Listing and Proposed Voluntary Liquidation of Pembridge Resources plc

London, United Kingdom - Pembridge Resources plc (LSE: PERE) ("Pembridge" or the "Company") announces that following consultation with the FCA, the Company has requested the FCA to suspend the listing of its shares from 7.30 am on 18 May 2023.

The Company holds an investment of 11.1% in Minto Metals Corp ("Minto"), which is the Company's main asset. On 15 May the Company announced the suspension of mining by Minto and the suspension of Minto's trading on the TSXV. Also, the Company announced that that it was unlikely to receive C$2 million due from Minto, of which C$250,000 was payable in instalments during 2023 and is deemed critical to the Company cash flow over the next 12 months , and that it was reviewing its ability to continue to trade as a going concern.

Further to the announcement made by the Company on 15 May 2023, the Board of Directors of the Company met on 17 May 2023 and resolved in light of the financial position of the Company, given the operational suspension of the Minto mine and suspension of trading in the Minto shares on the TSXV, to engage insolvency advisers at Evelyn Partners LLP and to commence steps to place the Company into Creditors' Voluntary Liquidation. A General Meeting of the Company will be convened as soon as practicable to formally resolve that the Company be wound up voluntarily.

A request has been made to the FCA to suspend trading of the Company's share as of 18 May 2023.

Notwithstanding the suspension of trading in the Company's ordinary shares, the Company will continue to make announcements as and when there are any developments that require announcement in accordance with its obligations under the Listing Rules, the UK Market Abuse Regulation and the Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.
