CALGARY, AB--(Marketwired - August 31, 2017) - Niko Resources Ltd. ("Niko" or the "Company") (TSX: NKO) provides the following update:

As disclosed in its August 11, 2017 press release announcing its operating and financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2017, in order to fund the projected cash requirements of the Company's assets in India and its other cash requirements over the next few months, the Company requested consent from the Lenders under its amended and restated facilities agreement to use a portion of the funds in a restricted cash reserve account. A decision from the Lenders on this request is now expected before the end of September 2017. An adverse decision from the Lenders will have a material adverse impact on the Company's ability to fund its operations and is likely to lead the Company to take steps which could be adverse to all stakeholders.
