Toronto, April 17, 2018 – Golden Share Resources Corporation (“Golden Share” or the “Company”, TSXV: GSH) announces its intention to spin out its energy storage business into a new public entity, with the Company retaining its mineral exploration business. In conjunction with its legal and tax advisors, Golden Share is reviewing various options for structuring and implementing such a transaction. While the Company intends to proceed expeditiously, it is not yet in a position to determine when any such spin out might be completed and will keep the market informed by way of subsequent announcements if and when further developments warrant. Any such transaction will be subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
As previously announced, Golden Share’s energy storage business currently consists of a series of agreements as follows:
The Strategic Partnership Agreement between Northwest Mining & Exploration Group and Golden Share (announced on May 24, 2016).
The License Agreement with the Battelle Memorial Institute, the operator of the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory ("PNNL") for the U.S. Department of Energy (announced on October 18, 2016).
The Agreement for Commercializing Technology with PNNL (announced on January 30, 2018).
The Letter of Intent with Hunan Vanadium Valley New Energy Technology (announced on February 12, 2018).

WARNING: Certain statements in this press release may be forward-looking, including those with respect to the Company’s intention to spin out its energy storage business. Although the Company believes the expectations reflected in such statements are based on reasonable assumptions, it can give no assurances that its expectations will be achieved. Such assumptions, which may prove incorrect, include that the Company will be able to identify a viable mechanism for spinning out that business in a manner that is feasible from a legal, tax and commercial perspective, as well as the ongoing viability of that business until the spinout is complete. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from expectations include legal, tax or commercial issues that make such a transaction impractical, and PNNL's inability to develop the battery on time, within budget or at all due to technical, personnel or other obstacles.
