(via TheNewswire)

October 7, 2019 - TheNewswire - Vancouver, BC - Reconnaissance Energy Africa Ltd. (the "Company" or "ReconAfrica") (TSXV:RECO) is pleased to announce it has received its Environmental Clearance Certificate ("Drilling Permit") from the Office of the Environmental Commissioner, Namibia Ministry of Environment and Tourism, covering the entire PEL 73 permit, which extends over an area of 6.3 million acres (25,000 km2), in northeastern Namibia.

"Further, we are pleased with the ongoing support we have received for our planned operations, at all levels of Namibia's government."
