("Egdon" or "the Company")

Springs Road-1 Reaches Total Depth

Egdon Resources plc is pleased to report the main points from the announcement made this morning by IGas Energy plc ("IGas") as they concern the Springs Road-1- ("SR-01") well on license PEDL140, in which Egdon holds 14.5% interest:

· The Springs Road-1 well has reached a total depth of 3,500 metres after encountering all three pre-drill targets - the Bowland Shale, the Millstone Grit and the Arundian Shales.

· A hydrocarbon bearing shale sequence of over 250 metres was encountered within the upper and lower Bowland Shale (as announced on 11 March 2019). In addition, significant gas indications were observed within the Millstone Grit sequence, deeper parts of the lower Bowland Shale and the Arundian shale.

· The cores and wireline logs will now undergo a suite of analysis, the first results of which should be available in the second quarter of 2019 and which will give us further insight into the resource potential and shale characterisation that will be utilised for future appraisal and development of the wider East Midlands area.

· The Springs Road drilling performance has been very encouraging with improved rates of penetration leading to better than anticipated drilling performance and lower costs.

Commenting on the announcement Mark Abbott, Managing Director of Egdon Resources plc, said:

"These results from the Springs Road-1 well are highly encouraging, having encountered all three pre-drill objectives and demonstrating the presence of a significant sequence of hydrocarbon bearing shales. We await with anticipation the results of the detailed core and wireline log analysis which will provide additional insight into the resource potential of the Gainsborough Trough where Egdon holds interests in 82,000 net acres. We look forward to updating shareholders in due course."

Notes to Editors:

Gainsborough Trough

Egdon has extensive operated and non-operated acreage interests in the Gainsborough Trough unconventional gas plays in the East Midlands.

Egdon are the third largest net acreage holder in the Gainsborough Trough play with 82,000 net acres with shale/tight gas potential.

Egdon's licences in the Gainsborough Trough contain an estimated 20 TCF of net Undiscovered GIIP in Upper and Lower Bowland-Hodder Shales (or 40% of Egdon's total net undiscovered unconventional resources GIIP of 51 TCF (ERCE 2014 and 2016 see below). The Springs Road-1 well is the first modern well employing the latest logging and coring techniques to test these Carboniferous age tight gas and shale gas plays with Egdon's acreage.

Further information on the Gainsborough Trough is available on our website at http://www.egdon-resources.com/gainsborough-trough/ and http://www.egdon-resources.com/operations/uk/east-midlands/

Egdon was formed in 1997 and listed on AIM in December 2004.

ERCE Estimates

ERCE's estimates of undiscovered GIIP are subject to exploration risk, which may be considerable. ERCE has not assessed this risk as no Prospective Resources have yet been attributed to these properties by Egdon and ERCE, and further geoscientific and engineering data need to be acquired to be able to quantify these resources. ERCE notes that mining of the overlying coal measures has occurred in a number of the licences, which may affect site access and drilling operations. In the case where Prospective Resources are identified within these licences, there is no certainty that any portion of the resources will be discovered. If discovered, there is no certainty that it will be commercially viable to produce any portion of the resources.
