Amendment to Liontown CLN and Operational Update  


Mila Resources Plc (LSE:MILA), the post-discovery gold exploration accelerator, is pleased to announce that, following the publication of its Propspectus on 16 October 2023 and completion of its £2m fundraise on 9 November 2023, it has agreed with Liontown Resources Limited (ASX: LTR) ("Liontown") to amend the terms of the Convertible Loan Note issued to Liontown on 26 July 2023 ("CLN").


On 26 July 2023 Liontown subscribed for A$100,000 unsecured convertible loan notes issued by Mila.

Following the amendment Liontown has agreed that Mila will convert the AS$100,000 into 5,147,475 fully paid Mila Ordinary Shares at a conversion price of 1 pence per share.


In addition Mila has also agreed to issue Liontown warrants to subscribe for up to a further 5,147,475 Ordinary Shares exerciseable at a price of 2 pence per share at any time until 29 January 2027.


Operational Update - Liontown to Commence Work

Further to the announcements of 27 July 2023 and 11 October 2023, Liontown is scheduled to commence exploration for lithium at the Kathleen Valley Gold Project in Western Australia ('Kathleen Valley' or the 'Project') this week.  Liontown has commissioned a aerial imgery survey for its baseline studies to comply with heritage and environmental regulations ahead of the sampling and drilling works on the Project. 


As previously announced, Liontown has identified several lithium targets in the northern and central areas of the Project, which coincide with the gold target areas previously identified by Mila.  Under the joint venture between Liontown and Mila, Mila will be able to access and conduct gold and base metal test work from the drilling core provided by Liontown drill programme. The board of Mila expects that this will significantly reduce the overall cost and timeframe of Mila's exploration activities within the coincident areas.


Further information regarding Liontown's activities and results will be provided in due course.


Mark Stephenson, Executive Chairman of Mila commented: "Liontown's lithium exploration activities in the northern part of our Kathleen Valley Project will provide direct benefits to Mila and will provide invaluable data to us as we plan our next phase of exploration across the wider project area, and begin targeting the concentrated zones of high-grade gold mineralisation identified in our recent drill programme.  


"We look forward to receiving Liontown's data and analysis in the coming weeks and will continue to report back to shareholders as in due course."



An application will be made for the 5,147,475 new Orindary Shares issued to Liontown to be admitted to trading on the Official List and the London Stock Exchange ("Admission") and Admission is expected to take place on or around 8.00a.m. on 2 February 2024.
