Posted: Updated:

TORONTO, ONTARIO / ACCESSWIRE / March 10 2014 / Maxim Resources Inc. (“Maxim” or the “Company”) (TSX V: MXM Frankfurt: MSH OTCBB: MXMSF) is pleased to announce that it has closed its securities exchange with Global Resources Investment Trust plc (“GRIT”).

The Company issued 5,500,000 common shares at $0.125 per common share to GRIT, in exchange for 380,256 ordinary shares of GRIT (the “GRIT Shares”), at the deemed price of ?1.00 per GRIT Share.

The Company will now seek to sell the GRIT Shares through the facilities of the London Stock Exchange. During the first six months, all sales of GRIT Shares will be arranged by GRIT. While the Company will seek to maximize the proceeds it receives from the sale of its GRIT Shares, there is no assurance as to the timing of disposition or the amount that will be realized. Funds realized from the sale of the GRIT Shares will be used by the Company for general working capital and exploration expenses.

The GRIT Shares were distributed pursuant to a prospectus published by GRIT in the UK on February 28, 2014. GRIT’s application to list its ordinary shares on the premium listing segment of the Official List and to trade on the London Stock Exchange’s main market became effective today. GRIT’s distribution of the GRIT Shares to the Company and other Canadian based issuers was also made pursuant to a discretionary exemption order granted by the Ontario and British Columbia Securities Commissions by order dated November 13, 2013.

GRIT has been established to exploit investment opportunities in the junior mining and natural resources sectors worldwide, with an investment objective to generate medium and long-term capital growth. GRIT has conducted share exchange transactions with 41 junior resource companies (32 headquartered in Canada), acquiring an initial portfolio of their securities in exchange for 39,520,012 ordinary shares having a deemed value of ?39,520,012 (approximately C$73,250,000).
