Astra Resources PLC: ASTRA RESOURCES PLC APPLIES FOR LISTING IN CANADA

Adelaide, Australia -13thMay 2014:

Astra Resources PLC ("Astra") would like to announce that its board has
decided to apply for a listing on the Canadian Securities Exchange ("CSE").

This new listing in North America will allow Astra the efficient and seamless
transition from a company historically financed mostly from European, Asian
and Australian investors to one whose main focus is now on global investor
relations including the U.S. and Canada. While Astra has already other
longstanding stock exchange relationships, the Company's management believes
this new listing constitutes the right move for Astra in order to intensify
its international investor relations and increase investors' access to
Astra's stock around the globe. Once trading on the CSE, Astra will file for
immediate secondary listings on Frankfurt and Berlin.

Astra is currently finalizing all required documents for this listing and is
looking forward to start trading on this innovative securities exchange,
which is well suited for a globally active company. Astra intends to keep its
existing GXG listing where the Company was upgraded from First Quote to Main
Quote.

Astra is confident this listing will give the company a strong foundation to
carry out its ambitious plans for the next years.

About CSE:

The Canadian Securities Exchange (CSE) began operations in 2003 to provide a
modern and efficient alternative for companies looking to access the Canadian
public capital markets. The operating company, CNSX Markets Inc., was
recognized by the Ontario Securities Commission as a stock exchange in 2004.
Designed to meet the needs of emerging companies and their investors, CSE has
grown continuously and now lists more than 200 equities, government bonds and
structured products. In September 2007, the exchange launched the first
continuous auction market to trade securities listed on other Canadian stock
exchanges. The new facility introduced a high capacity, low latency trading
environment combined with an attractive fee structure that enabled the
Canadian trading community to use advanced trading technologies to their full
advantage, while delivering cost savings enhancing the competitiveness of the
Canadian markets. Following the completion of "Project One" on December 2,
2013 CSE listed symbols and stocks listed on other Canadian exchanges are now
being traded on a single system at the CSE.
