(“Ndovu”) and Solo Oil PLC (“Solo”) for participation in the Likonde-1 well in Tanzania, Solo has given notice that it intends to exercise its option to take up a 12.5% interest in the Ruvuma Production Sharing Agreement in Tanzania and in the Joint Operating Agreement between Ndovu and Tullow Oil (operator). Completion of the exercise of option is subject to:

- Execution of a Deed of Assignment of interest from Ndovu to Solo.

- Formal approval of the Deed of Assignment by the Tanzanian authorities.

After drilling Likonde-1, Solo has earned the right to participate in any further drilling on the licences covered by the Ruvuma PSA through contributing 12.5% of ongoing costs. On completion of the conditions referred to above, Solo will become a full party to the Ruvuma joint operating agreement with interests in the PSA held as follows: Tullow (operator) 50%, Ndovu (Aminex) 37.5% and Solo 12.5%.
