Net Asset Value at 30 September 2019

Starvest PLC (LON:SVE), the London Stock Exchange AIM listed specialist mining and resources investment business, announces a Net Asset Value update as at 30 September 2019.

Callum Baxter, Chairman and CEO, commented: 'A difficult trading environment for exploration and mining stocks has prevailed throughout the current year as a result of reduced capital market funding for important field exploration programmes and development work. Despite the adverse setting, several investee companies in our portfolio have weathered the poor market conditions and delivered strong exploration and operational results. From this we have achieved an increase of 22% in our Trading Portfolio Value over the past 12 months. We have also seen a 25% increase in our Net Asset Value over the 12 month period to 30 September 2019, and a 21% increase in our Net Asset Value per Share. We look forward to continued positive performance from our specialist mining portfolio.'

The net asset value as at 30 September 2019 was as follows:
