Long Forgotten Uranium Bonanza Rediscovered, Kilimanjaro Unleashes Somalia Uranium Exploration Initiative

BELIZE CITY, BELIZE--(Marketwired - April 15, 2014) - The directors and management of Kilimanjaro Capital (GXG:KCAP)(OTC PINK:KIMJF) are pleased to provide an update on the Company's evolving interests in Somalia where Kilimanjaro Capital currently has a 5% earn in interest in the 1,161,400 acres Amsas-Coriole-Afgoi (ACA) Block.

It is all but forgotten that prior to the 1991 civil war, Somalia was one of Africa's largest suppliers of uranium with tons of proven reserves and even more undiscovered. Somali uranium powered Iraq's infamous nuclear program. Brazilian, UAE, American, and Italian companies scrambled for concessions and had big plans for the region including US major Westinghouse. Then the civil war broke out in 1991, the Ministry of Mines and its records were destroyed and all traces of uranium mining disappeared. US State Department declassified documents indicate the disastrous "Black Hawk Down" Mogadishu intervention in 1993 may also have been intended to secure uranium resources from falling into the wrong hands.
