About Mawson Resources Ltd (TSX:MAW, FRANKFURT:MRY, PINKSHEETS:MWSNF)

Mawson Resources Ltd is a resource acquisition and development company with metal and energy interests.

Mawson has distinguished itself as a leading Scandinavian gold and uranium exploration company with a focus on the flagship Rompas project in Finland. As the European Union moves to reduce its reliance on carbon-based energy sources and continues to debate energy security, Mawson is well positioned to provide Europe with the option to fuel its future. In addition, the Company is exploring for gold and copper in the highly prospective Cordillera of Peru with a focus on a new gold-copper discovery at Alto Quemado.

With a strong cash position and a multi-jurisdiction European and South American portfolio, Mawson is ideally positioned to enhance its status as a leader in the uranium and gold industries.

On behalf of the Board,

"Michael Hudson"
