Paradigm Resource Closes Investment in Provider of Breakthrough Technology for
    the Extraction & Recovery of Latent Precious Metals from Complex Ores

PR Newswire

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 20, 2013

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Paradigm Resource Management
Corporation ("Paradigm Resource" or the "Company"; OTCBB: PRDC) today
announced that it has completed the previously announced strategic investment
in TOSS Plasma Technologies Limited ("TPT") by way of issuing new shares of
the Company.

Founded in 2003, TPT has developed a breakthrough technology and processing
system, using ultra-temperature (between 8,000 degrees Celsiusto 12,000
degrees Celsius) radio frequency plasma torch, to extract latent precious
metals from certain types of complex ores. TPT is headquartered in Tokyo with
a pilot plant and research center based in Yamagata prefecture in Japan. TPT's
target market is a traditional industry with an abundance of complex ores
containing "latent" precious metals that have not been exploited due to
technical limitation of available minerals processing technologies. The RF
Plasma technology provides the technical breakthrough that has been validated
by the phenomenal post-processing assay results on recovered precious metals
from select complex ores.

TRANSACTION TERMS

The transaction was carried out by way of a Stock Purchase and Exchange
Agreement between AMSA Development Technology Co. Ltd. dated July 24, 2013
(the "Agreement"), whereby the Company will issue 80,700,000 common shares in
exchange for 804,600 shares, or 30%, of the outstanding common stock of TPT.
The implementation of this transaction shall be subject to approval by at
least 66 2/3% of the votes cast at a special meeting of Paradigm Resource
shareholders. Pursuant to the terms of the Agreement, the transaction is also
subject to applicable regulatory approvals and the satisfaction of certain
conditions customary in transactions of this nature. The Agreement also
provides for, among other things, appointment of Mr. Takanori Ted Ozaki
(currently TPT Founder and President) as the Company's new Chief Executive
Officer, non-solicitation covenants as well as the Company's option to
repurchase up to 44,833,333 shares from TPT either in the form of cash or
common shares.

Executive Officer and a new VP of Business Development, whom were approved at
a special meeting of Paradigm Resource shareholders held on July 31, 2013:

mining sector. We are confident that with his leadership we can take Paradigm
Resource to a whole new level," says Robert M. Price who is relieved from his
