TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 21, 2010)- Khan Resources Inc. (TSX:KRI) ("Khan") announced today that its 58%-owned Mongolian joint venture subsidiary, Central Asian Uranium Company, LLC ("CAUC") has filed a formal claim in the Capital City Administrative Court in Mongolia challenging the legal basis for the notice received from the Mongolian Nuclear Energy Agency (the "NEA") purporting to invalidate CAUC's mining license 237A. The claim asserts, among other things, that the NEA has no legal authority to make a decision to invalidate the mining license and that the NEA's purported decision to do so violates the provisions of Mongolian law. CAUC is seeking a declaration of the Court that the NEA's purported action to invalidate the mining license is itself invalid. Khan's 100%-owned Mongolian subsidiary, Khan Resources LLC ("Khan Mongolia") is in the process of preparing and intends to file a similar claim on substantially the same basis in due course in respect of the NEA's purported invalidation of Khan Mongolia's exploration license 9282X.
