Atlantis Resources Limited

Grant of awards to Director

Atlantis Resources Limited (AIM: ARL, "Atlantis", or the "Company") announces that today it has granted an award over 1,000,000 ordinary shares of no par value in the Company ("Ordinary Shares") under the Company 2013 Long-Term Incentive Plan ("the Plan"), as amended by the Board in January 2016, to the Company CEO, Tim Cornelius.

The vesting of the awards is normally subject to ongoing employment with the Company. Subject to the rules of the Plan, the award will vest one third on 11 December 2016, one third on 11 December 2017 and one third on 11 December 2018 and remain exercisable until the tenth anniversary of the grant date.

The award has been granted in the form of an option with an exercise price per Ordinary Share of £0.50.

The Remuneration Committee met in late 2015 to consider the exercise price of this option award when the share price had been trading well below 50p for the previous 12 months and was then trading at a discount of more than 25% to the exercise price. At that time the Remuneration Committee unanimously agreed to recommend to the board that the options be awarded and in January 2016 the board formally accepted this recommendation and agreed that it should be implemented at the earliest possible opportunity but due to a series of technical close periods the board were unable to authorise this award until now.

At the same time all outstanding options granted to Tim Cornelius on 11 December 2013, totalling 1,063,830 Ordinary Shares at an exercise price of £0.94 per share will be cancelled. A separate notification has been issued in respect of this cancellation.
