AIM Exploration Inc. Background and update as of Fall 2016 $

Henderson, NV – AIM Exploration Inc. (OTCQB:AEXE) is pleased to provide a comprehensive background and update as of Fall 2016

AIM Exploration Inc. was originally formed with the objective to develop a Feldspar mine in the Philippines and source other valuable mining properties worldwide. In mid 2014 AIM acquired what is considered a rich anthracite coal mining concessions in Peru from Percana Mining Corp., a privately held company. AIM continued to look at and consider other properties however none of the other properties AIM reviewed had the long term profitability potential AIM was looking for. During this period AIM continued to operate the Feldspar properties in the Philippines however in 2016 the change within the government in the Philippines made significant changes to mining laws which AIM studied and after careful consideration elected to cease all operations in the Philippines and concentrate all efforts and resources on the Peruvian properties in view of the high profit potential.

As stated above in mid 2014, Aim Exploration, Inc. entered into a Mining Concession Asset Acquisition Agreement with Percana Mining Corp.. Through this acquisition AIM acquired ownership/control over 1,000 hectares of mining concessions located in Peru.

Prior the completion of the acquisition AIM hired a USA geologist/ mining engineer (Mr. Karl Gurr of Gustafson and associates) to complete a site visit and review the previous documentation and reports previously obtained by Percana Mining Corp. Mr. Gurr provided a detailed report to AIM and based on this report AIM was confident the concessions would prove out. The concessions appeared to be rich with anthracite coal and all previous samples (and subsequent samples) tested indicated a very high quality of anthracite. The mining concession properties are adjoining properties, on one section of the property there were and continues to be approximately 20 operating mining tunnels that are, and continue to be operated by artesian miners who reside close by. AIM has continued to allow the artesian miners to operate on their own however the company has contracted with virtually every miner to work strictly for AIM. In addition, AIM, through the direction and guidance of Mr. Karl Gurr intends to further explore and develop the properties. One of the reports the previous owners (Percana) obtained by a qualified Peruvian geologists estimates there are in excess of six hundred million tons of coal within their properties, we must advise however this report is not 43-101 compliant and therefore cannot be relied upon for investment purposes however AIM believes strongly in the report.

From a background standpoint prior to AIM taking control of the property the previous owners worked very hard over a number of years developing a strong rapport with the local inhabitants in villages close to the mining site. Through their efforts they obtained approval from the locals to explore and develop the properties. AIM continues to work very closely with the previous owners as the current President & CEO of AIM was the President of Percana and the other director of Percana is very closely involved and will be overseeing the operations in Peru. AIM has developed very close relations with key people in Peru and has strong ties not only with the locals but with strong legal and accounting teams in Peru.

AIM has personnel in Peru working diligently to continue to develop operations within the country. AIM has spent a great deal of time developing and refining the infrastructure to ensure profitable operations, including but not limited to coal extraction from the existing tunnels, transportation of the coal from the mine site to a holding site in Trujillo (approx. 200 KM), and further transport to the Port of Salaverry located within 2 KM of the holding site. AIM has developed strong ties with the Port Authority and feels extremely confident of their co-operation.

The board of directors of AIM are seasoned professionals as is the case with all the individuals and firms they choose to work with, AIM carefully considers everyone they choose to work with as they must understand the underlying AIM philosophy —- AIM cares! AIM not only cares about the people but cares about the environment. An example how much we care is we have over the years assisted members of the small communities close to the mine sites with medical needs, and helping the families and children in the communities through bring much needed medication, sporting equipment to the children and we even hold annual Christmas parties for the needy families.

Of late AIM, knowing that miners are working in less than desirous situations they recently hired a company Caduceus Software Systems Corp. (aka Caduceus) to work with the company to ensure the safest environment possible. Caduceus is a company that specializes in harsh environment situations and safety consulting, and can provide certificates for AIM’s mining crew. It is intended that Caduceus work with the miners and provide the AIM crew with Confined Space and Advanced Rescue entry and attendant certificates, Fall protection and Fall Arrest cards, Draeggar Monitoring training, and conduct FIT tests.

While AIM continues to set up and refine operations within Peru the President of AIM has been concentrating on the marketing of the anthracite coal. Over the years many potential purchasers have shown a great deal of interest working with AIM, however knowing and understanding the long term effects of developing marketing relationships AIM was very careful selecting the group they feel has the strongest long term potential for the shareholders of AIM. During the past 18 months AIM has developed a very strong working relationship with an Indian firm (Prina Energy) to market the coal. The relationship with the President of Prina Energy is very strong. After a site visit in Peru, Prina not only completely viewed the entire AIM properties but was also introduced to all AIM personnel in Peru and met with the key players in Peru and developed a strong understanding of the detailed logistics AIM has developed.

Through this association initially Prina Energy provided AIM with an LOI to purchase coal direct; however subsequent to that AIM and Prina have developed an even stronger relationship and is now in the final stages of setting up a joint venture operation head-quartered in Dubai UAE DMCC.

The DMCC was established in 2002 as a strategic initiative of the Government of Dubai with a mandate to provide the physical, market and financial infrastructure required to set up and operate a thriving commodities marketplace, today they are officially recognized as the largest Free Zone in the United Arab Emirates with over 12,000 registered companies under license.

Setting up the marketing arm in Dubai is a strategic move for long term growth and profitability for AIM, Prina has strong ties in the UAE not only with high level long term buyers but access to appropriate financing which AIM will require for operational working capital.

In addition, Prina, through close connections will attract the level of buyers needed to make AIM a profitable corporation over the long term.

This joint venture will be completely set up in the very near future and operations will commence.

It is anticipated that commencing January 2017 all the operations will be underway and shipping of coal is anticipated for March 2017.
