CNMC Goldmine Holdings Limited Signs Memorandum of Understanding with University of Malaya for Research Collaboration

The board of directors of CNMC Goldmine Holdings Limited announced that CNMC has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Malaysia's University of Malaya (UM) for research collaboration. Under the MOU, CNMC and UM have agreed to form a research unit for in-depth studies on mineralization of gold and rare earth elements in Malaysia. Research work, to be carried out in Malaysia by a PhD student and four MSc students from UM, will be funded by a grant of MYR 1.5 million from CNMC over three years. The students from UM will get to work with CNMC's geologists, who in turn will be able to make use of UM's research facilities. Dr. Jasmi Hafiz Abdul Aziz, head of UM's Economic Geology Research Group and a council member of the geological society of Malaysia, will oversee the students' research work. The Board is of the view that the research collaboration will benefit the group's ongoing exploration activities. CNMC operates a gold mine in the state of Kelantan and will continue its efforts to seek opportunities to expand its minerals portfolio, including acquiring exploration and mining assets in Malaysia and neighboring regions.

FSBM Ctech Sdn Bhd Files Legal Action Against University of Malaya and Technitium Sdn. Bhd

FSBM Holdings Berhad announced that its subsidiary FSBM Ctech Sdn Bhd had on 5 November 2015 filed on 21 October 2015 in the Kuala Lumpur High Court, against University of Malaya (University Malaya Medical Centre) as first defendant and Technitium Sdn Bhd as second defendant for the recovery of MYR 10,370,791.94. TSB was awarded a contract by UMMC on 8 April 2006 and TSB subsequently sub contracted to CTECH a portion of the project in 28 April 2006. TSB has since been wound up on 18 June 2012 and liquidators have been appointed. CTECH has obtained sanction from the liquidators to represent TSB to recover the sums due and payable by UMMC to TSB. CTECH is claiming the sum of RM10,370,791.94 to be paid to TSB at an interest of 6% per annum on the said sum of RM10,370,791.94 from the date of judgment until full settlement including cost, and any other relief which the Court deems fit. The 1st case management has been fixed for 23 November 2015. The Company will take all the necessary and possible steps to recover the debts from UMMC. UMMC had filed a Notice of Appearance to the High Court on 16 November 2015. The Writ of Summons and Statement of Claim are not expected to have any impact on the operations on the Group but should the suit be in the Company’s favour, there will be positive financial impact on the Group. The company is not expected to incur any further losses arising from the Writ of Summons and Statement of Claim.
