AVIEMORE MINING RIGHT UPDATE
Buffalo updates shareholders on the proceedings in respect of the notice received from the Minister of
Mineral Resources in South Africa (?the Minister?) withdrawing the Director-General?s decision to grant
Mining Right 301 (?MR301?), as well as withdrawal of the approval by the Regional Manager of the
Environmental Management Plan in respect of that right, as announced on August 27, 2015.
On August 28, 2015, Buffalo instituted proceedings against both the Minister, as the first respondent,
and the Avemore Trust, as the second respondent, to seek urgent relief as previously advised ("Urgent
Application"), with the matter anticipated to be heard on September 1, 2015.
On August 31, 2015, the state attorney provided the Company's lawyers with notice that it will (i) not
oppose the Urgent Application and (ii) abide by the order handed down by the court in the Urgent
Application. However the Avemore Trust requested a postponement of the hearing of the Urgent
Application, which postponement was agreed to, subject to the Company being allowed to continue
mining operations in the MR301 area. Accordingly, the postponement was granted, and the Urgent
Application will now be heard during the course of the week commencing on September 14, 2015. In the
interim, the court has granted immediate relief to the Company for mining operations to continue in the
MR301 area until the Urgent Application is heard and finally ruled upon by the court.
Further details will be provided in due course.
