The independent technical report, entitled “NI43-101 Technical Report, Magnetite Mineral Resource, Lake Giles Magnetite Project, Western Australia (“2020 Technical Report”) with an issue date of September 29, 2020 was prepared in accordance with the requirements of National Instrument 43-101 (“NI 43-101”).

The Technical Report was completed by independent geological consultants CSA Global Pty Ltd (CSA Global).
The previous Mineral Resource estimates presented to the market between 2009 and 2019 consisted entirely of Inferred resources, including 710 million tonnes (“Mt”) at the Moonshine deposits. During 2019 the Company completed a program of infill drilling across some of the Moonshine deposit to upgrade the Mineral Resource category to include Indicated and Measured resources. The Mineral Resource upgrade has delivered sufficient resources in the appropriate categories to underpin the current Lake Giles Iron Project Feasibility Study.
The updated Mineral Resource estimates incorporate the recent drill assays and has resulted in an increase in the size of the Moonshine mineral resources, including resource category upgrades to now include Measured and Indicated resources. Approximately 30% of the Moonshine resource is now classified as Indicated with approximately 7.5% classified in the Measured category.
Highlights of Mineral Resource estimates:
· Measured resources of 53.9 Mt at 30.8% Fe head grade and 66.0% Fe DTR concentrate grade
· Indicated resources of 218.7 Mt at 27.5% Fe head grade and 66.1% Fe DTR concentrate grade
· Inferred resources of 997.0 Mt at 28.4% Fe head grade and 64.6% Fe DTR concentrate grade
