THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO–(Marketwired – May 24, 2016) – Alset Energy Corp. (TSX VENTURE:ION) (“Alset” or “the Company”) would like to update shareholders regarding the recent trading halt on the Company’s shares. As part of the due diligence being conducted on the mineral concessions held by Litio Mex, S.A.de C.V. (the “Optionor”) pursuant to the recently executed binding Letter of Intent (“LOI”) (See Alset PR dated May 10, 2016), the Company engaged legal counsel in Mexico to verify title and status of the concessions included in the LOI. Certain discrepancies were brought to the attention of the Company that required further verification with the Optionor and the requisite State and Federal governing bodies in Mexico. As a result, the Company requested that trading of its shares be halted while this verification was completed. The Company is pleased to inform shareholders that the Optionor’s initial representations to the Company regarding ownership were accurate and the issue relating to title has been resolved to the satisfaction of the Company.
Alset can acquire any or all of the concessions by paying any outstanding taxes owed on any or all mineral concessions that Alset would like to acquire, and;

- US$30,000 on second anniversary of signing the Definitive Agreement;
- US$35,000 on third anniversary of signing the Definitive Agreement;
- US$40,000 on fourth anniversary of signing the Definitive Agreement; and
- US$60,000 on fifth anniversary of signing the Definitive Agreement
The property will be subject to a 2.25% NSR in favour of the Optionor of which 1% can be purchased by the Company for US$250,000. Alset has agreed to pay a finders’ fee to a third party of 10% based on the value of the option.
