Vancouver, B.C. Canada, January 11, 2018 - Belmont Resources Inc. (TSX.V: BEA; FSE: L3L1; DTC Eligible - CUSIP 080499403); (Belmont, or the Company)

International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID)
Further to our news release dated August 22, 2017. The Company has re-engaged the law firm Derains & Gharavi of Paris, France to pursue annulment proceedings relating to the arbitral tribunal ICSID decision made on August 18, 2017. Legal costs of this action are being borne by a third party as previously agreed.

Mr. Vojtech Agyagos, CEO/President comments; If the definitive annulment decision is made in our favour, Belmont will be automatically be restored as a claimant in the Belmont-EuroGas vs. Slovak Republic arbitration, and the arbitration will proceed as if no prior verdict had been made. The claims of Belmont and EuroGas Inc. arose out of the revocation of the claimants exclusive rights for mining activities at the Gemerska Poloma talc deposit allegedly without compensation, despite three decisions of Slovakias Supreme Court declaring such action illegal.

It is the view of the dissenting judge of the ICSID Tribunal that the actual dispute arose after the critical date of March 14, 2009 and as a result, falls squarely within the Tribunals jurisdiction ratione temporis provision found at Article XV(6) of the 2010 Canada-Slovakia BIT (the BIT or the Treaty). Further details of the 12 page Dissenting Opinion of Professor Emmanuel Gaillard ICSID Case No. ARB/14/14 can be reviewed on the website
