Statesman Resources Ltd. announces that on 5 September 2012 it signed an agreement with Agri Energy Limited to join with Statesman in its exploration efforts in Africa. Agri has agreed to acquire a 49.9% shareholding of Statesman Africa Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Statesman. Statesman Africa Limited holds via another subsidiary a seventy five per cent (75%) working interest in Block 14 in Sudan and has a number of other opportunities it is pursuing in Africa. The agreement is for an initial period of 12 months and requires Agri to fund its 49.9% share of activities. As part of the overall transaction, Agri has advanced Statesman US$800,000 as a loan which will cover some of the initial costs associated with Statesman Energy Africa’s efforts in Africa.

The agreement is subject to both the approval of the Exchange and is subject to Agri undertaking a re-compliance process pursuant to the Australian Securities Exchange Listing Rules, which requires Agri shareholder approval which could take up to three (3) months.

With respect to Block 14 in Sudan, Statesman has satisfied the first of its financial obligations through the payment of its share of a Signature Bonus which totalled approximately CDN$1.6 million. Significant operations are expected to commence in Sudan within the next few months.
