Toronto, Ontario CANADA, March 21, 2014 /FSC/ - Stans Energy Corp.(TSX-V: HRE, OTCQX: HREEF), ("Stans" or the "Company")has been informed that the Inter-District Court of Bishkek (the "Court") has ruled in favour of the Kyrgyz General Prosecutor's Office ("SPO") with respect to its claim regarding Stans' wholly owned Kutessay II Project.
This administrative case was filed on March 26, 2013 against the State Agency on Geology and Mineral Resources under the Government of the Kyrgyz Republic ("SGA") to annul the December 21, 2009 Minutes of Negotiations (registration No. 1736-H-09) between the SGA and public company OAO Kutisay Mining (100% owned by the Government of KR). Kutisay Mining LLC is involved in the case as a third party. Stans reserves the
right to appeal this verdict to the Bishkek City Court within one month from the date of receipt of the written decision.
The Company's arbitration lawsuit is ongoing with the next hearing scheduled for March 31, 2014. Management's counsel believes that this ruling strengthens Stans' arbitration case at the Moscow Chamber of Commerce.
The Company will update shareholders and the investment community in due course once a written decision is provided by the Court.
