Beowulf Mining plc

("Beowulf" or the "Company")

Subscription to raise £500,000

Beowulf (AIM: BEM; Spotlight: BEO), the mineral exploration and
development company, is pleased to announce a subscription for new
ordinary shares of £0.01 each to raise £500,000 before expenses (the
"Subscription").

The funds will be used for general working capital purposes, as well
as legal advice in respect of the Kallak North application and give
the Company financial flexibility to support Vardar Mineral's
("Vardar") plans for the Mitrovica and Viti Projects in Kosovo.

Details of the Subscription, Issue of Equity, and Total Voting Rights

Pursuant to the Subscription, the Company will issue 9,090,909 new
ordinary shares of £0.01 each (the "Subscription Shares") to raise
approximately £500,000 (before expenses) at a price of 5.5 pence per
new ordinary share. The Company held approximately £791,177 in cash
at 30 September 2019.

Application has been made to the London Stock Exchange for the
Subscription Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM on or around 28
October 2019 ("Admission"). The Subscription Shares will rank pari
passu with existing ordinary shares of £0.01 each.

Following Admission, and in accordance with the Financial Conduct
Authority's Disclosure ("FCA") and Transparency Rules, the Company
hereby announces that it will have 597,730,179 ordinary shares in
issue, each share carrying the right to one vote. The Company does
not hold any ordinary shares in treasury.

Following Admission, the above figure of 597,730,179 ordinary shares
may be used by shareholders in the Company as the denominator for the
calculations by which they will determine if they are required to
notify their interest in, or a change to their interest, in the share
capital of the Company under the FCA and Transparency Rules.

Kurt Budge, Chief Executive Officer of Beowulf, commented:

"Markets remain challenging for junior natural resource companies, and
further uncertainty is created by Brexit, so to it is good to have
raised funds and modestly strengthen the Company's cash position.

"In Sweden, we continue to work with legal advisers regarding our
Kallak application, as we wait on a decision from the Swedish
Government, and with the recent award of the Parkijaure nr 6
Exploration Licence we are investigating the potential for additional
iron ore resource around Kallak. Also, we are discussing with Vardar
the next steps for the Mitrovica and Viti projects in Kosovo.

"I look forward to updating shareholders on further developments."

About Beowulf Mining plc

Beowulf's strategy is to build a sustainable and innovative mining
company, which creates shareholder value by developing mining assets,
delivering production and generating cash flow, and in so doing meets
society's ongoing need for minerals, metals and economic prosperity.

Beowulf is developing a high-quality asset base, which is diversified
by geography and commodity, enabling it to simultaneously advance
several projects up the mining value curve and create shareholder
value.

Additionally, the Board of Directors continues to look beyond the
Company for value creation opportunities.

The Company's first priority remains the award of the Exploitation
Concession for Kallak North, and thereafter completing the Scoping
Study. The introduction of a strategic partner/investor who
understands the value of Kallak as a high-quality asset, which could
be in production within four to five years, is an ongoing
consideration, but does not preclude the Company from continuing to
add value to Kallak in the meantime.

Fennoscandian Resources ("Fennoscandian"), the Company's graphite
business, is pursuing a strategy to develop a `resource footprint' of
natural flake graphite prospects that can provide `security of
supply' and enable Finland to achieve its ambition of
self-sufficiency in battery manufacturing. The Company is a
recipient of Business Finland funding, which is supporting
Fennoscandian to move downstream, and develop its knowledge in
processing and manufacturing value-added graphite products.

The Company owns 40.1 per cent of Vardar, a UK registered exploration
company with a focus on the metal endowed Balkan region and one of
the first companies to be awarded exploration licences in Kosovo.
Vardar holds exploration licences for the Mitrovica and Viti
projects. Both projects are located within the Tethyan Belt, a major
orogenic metallogenic province for gold and base metals which extends
from the Alps (Carpathians/Balkans) to Turkey, Iran and Indochina,
and contains several world class discoveries. The Tethyan Belt of
south-east Europe can be regarded as Europe's chief copper-gold
(lead-zinc-silver) province.
