Virginia Energy Grants Incentive Stock Options

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - August 24, 2017) - Virginia Energy Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE: VUI) ("Virginia Energy" or the "Company") has granted 3,940,000 stock options to directors, officers and consultants of the Company, subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval. The options will have a term of 5 years, expiring on August 21, 2022, and will allow the holder to purchase a common share in the Company at a price of $0.15. Any shares issued on the exercise of these stock options will be subject to a four-month hold period from date of grant.

The Board announces the resignation of Mr. Norm Reynolds, the original discoverer of the Coles Hill uranium deposit and one of the founders of Virginia Energy. It was through his persistence, hard work and diligence that the project was first advanced to a feasibility study by a subsidiary company of Union Carbide in the early 1980's. His advice and guidance will be missed and we wish Norm well in his future endeavours. Joe Kiely, a long time associate of the company in the capacity as previous Chief Financial Officer, has joined the board and will take Norm's place on the Audit Committee.
