Under the proposed merger, shareholders of Avocet will receive 1 share of Lion One for every 9.5 shares held in Avocet.(1) Based on the closing price of Lion One shares on December 19, 2012, the merger implies an offer price of A$0.072 per Avocet share,(2) representing a premium of 28.73% to the closing price of Avocet shares on December 20, 2012, and a premium of 28.07% to the 60-day volume-weighted average price of Avocet shares for the period ending December 20, 2012. Under the terms of the MIA, Lion One will issue, subject to regulatory approval, 11,106,772 common shares, representing 18.5% of the outstanding shares of the Company.

Combined assets of the merged Lion One and Avocet entity (the "Merged Entity") will include:


--  The Tuvatu Gold Project in Fiji - Lion One's advanced exploration
    project with current resources of 480,000 ounces inferred (2,618,000
    tonnes at 5.71 g/t Au) and 172,000 ounces indicated (760,000 tonnes at
    7.05 g/t Au).(3) 
--  An historic probable reserve under Australian JORC guidelines of 269,000
    oz. at 6.63 g/t Au based on a feasibility study carried out in year 2000
    by Bateman Engineering.(4) 
--  A 25% interest carried to production in the Olary Creek iron ore project

    a mineralised structure identified over a strike of over 13km with gold
    grades up to 13 g/t Au and silver grades to 1660 g/t Ag in rock chips. 
--  A strong portfolio of other precious metal and uranium projects in Fiji,
    Australia, and Argentina. 
--  An experienced team comprising members of both Avocet and Lion One
    capable of rapidly advancing the combined assets of the Merged Entity. 
--  Cash and cash equivalents of approximately CAD$18 million. 
--  A market capitalization in excess of CAD$35 million (based on the share
    price as at December 20, 2012) with the potential for a marketing re-
    rating.

Board of Directors' Recommendations

The independent directors of Avocet recommend that Avocet shareholders vote in favour of the merger in the absence of a superior proposal for Avocet and subject to an independent expert concluding that the Scheme is in the best interests of Avocet shareholders.

Transaction Structure and Terms

Under the proposal, Lion One will acquire all the issued ordinary shares of Avocet by way of the Scheme, where eligible Avocet shareholders will receive 1 Lion One share for every 9.5 Avocet shares held. On completion of the Scheme, Avocet shareholders and Lion One shareholders will hold approximately 18.5% and 81.5%, respectively, of the issued common shares of the Merged Entity (assuming that no options are exercised by Avocet or Lion One option holders). Lion One shareholders will continue to hold their existing Lion One common shares.

The merger is subject to Australian Court and Avocet shareholder approvals, with respect to Avocet shares, and TSX Venture Exchange approval with respect to new shares of Lion One created under the Scheme. The full terms of the MIA will be released by Avocet to the ASX in a separate announcement.

Avocet shareholders will receive a scheme booklet, which will contain full details of the proposed merger, the basis for the Avocet independent directors' recommendation, and an Independent Expert's Report. It is anticipated that the scheme booklet will be dispatched to shareholders in early March 2013, and that a meeting of Avocet shareholders to vote on the scheme will be held in early April 2013. It is expected that the merger will be implemented in April 2013.

About Lion One Metals Limited

Lion One Metals is focused on the exploration and development of prospective multi-million oz. gold deposits in the Fijian Islands. The Company's flagship Tuvatu Gold Project is situated in the Sabeto Valley, along Fiji's corridor of mineralized volcanic centers, approximately 50 km southeast of the 11 million ounce Vatukoula gold deposit. The Fijian Islands exhibit similar "island arc" geology that gives rise to many of the SW Pacific's major gold deposits such as Vatukoula, Ok Tedi, Porgera, and Lihir.
