Notes

 

i Please note that national forms may vary due to specific national legislation (Article 3(1a) of Directive 2004/109/EC) as for instance the applicable thresholds or information regarding capital holdings.

 

ii Full name of the legal entity and further specification of the issuer or underlying issuer, provided it is reliable and accurate (e.g. address, LEI, domestic number identity). Indicate in the relevant section whether the issuer is a non UK issuer.

 

iii Other reason for the notification could be voluntary notifications, changes of attribution of the nature of the holding (e.g. expiring of financial instruments) or acting in concert.

 

iv This should be the full name of (a) the shareholder; (b) the natural person or legal entity acquiring, disposing of or exercising voting rights in the cases provided for in DTR5.2.1 (b) to (h)/ Article 10 (b) to (h) of Directive 2004/109/EC; (c) all parties to the agreement referred to in Article 10 (a) of Directive 2004/109/EC (DTR5.2.1 (a)) or (d) the holder of financial instruments referred to in Article 13(1) of Directive 2004/109/EC (DTR5.3.1).

 

As the disclosure of cases of acting in concert may vary due to the specific circumstances (e.g. same or different total positions of the parties, entering or exiting of acting in concert by a single party) the standard form does not provide for a specific method how to notify cases of acting in concert.

 

In relation to the transactions referred to in points (b) to (h) of Article 10 of Directive 2004/109/EC (DTR5.2.1 (b) to (h)), the following list is provided as indication of the persons who should be mentioned:

 

– in the circumstances foreseen in letter (b) of Article 10 of that Directive (DTR5.2.1 (b)), the natural person or legal entity that acquires the voting rights and is entitled to exercise them under the agreement and the natural person or legal entity who is transferring temporarily for consideration the voting rights;

 

– in the circumstances foreseen in letter (c) of Article 10 of that Directive (DTR5.2.1 (c)), the natural person or legal entity holding the collateral, provided the person or entity controls the voting rights and declares its intention of exercising them, and natural person or legal entity lodging the collateral under these conditions;

 

– in the circumstances foreseen in letter (d) of Article 10 of that Directive (DTR5.2.1 (d)), the natural person or legal entity who has a life interest in shares if that person or entity is entitled to exercise the voting rights attached to the shares and the natural person or legal entity who is disposing of the voting rights when the life interest is created;

 

– in the circumstances foreseen in letter (e) of Article 10 of that Directive (DTR5.2.1 (e)), the controlling natural person or legal entity and, provided it has a notification duty at an individual level under Article 9 (DTR 5.1), under letters (a) to (d) of Article 10 of that Directive (DTR5.2.1 (a) to (d)) or under a combination of any of those situations, the controlled undertaking;

 

– in the circumstances foreseen in letter (f) of Article 10 of that Directive (DTR5.2.1 (f)), the deposit taker of the shares, if he can exercise the voting rights attached to the shares deposited with him at his discretion, and the depositor of the shares allowing the deposit taker to exercise the voting rights at his discretion;

 

– in the circumstances foreseen in letter (g) of Article 10 of that Directive (DTR5.2.1 (g)), the natural person or legal entity that controls the voting rights;

 

– in the circumstances foreseen in letter (h) of Article 10 of that Directive (DTR5.2.1 (h)), the proxy holder, if he can exercise the voting rights at his discretion, and the shareholder who has given his proxy to the proxy holder allowing the latter to exercise the voting rights at his discretion (e.g. management companies).

 

v Applicable in the cases provided for in Article 10 (b) to (h) of Directive 2004/109/EC (DTR5.2.1 (b) to (h). This should be the full name of the shareholder who is the counterparty to the natural person or legal entity referred to in Article 10 of that Directive (DTR5.2) unless the percentage of voting rights held by the shareholder is lower than the lowest notifiable threshold for the disclosure of voting rights holdings in accordance with national practices (e.g. identification of funds managed by management companies).

 

vi The date on which threshold is crossed or reached should be the date on which the acquisition or disposal took place or the other reason triggered the notification obligation. For passive crossings, the date when the corporate event took effect.

 

vii The total number of voting rights shall be composed of all the shares, including depository receipts representing shares, to which voting rights are attached even if the exercise thereof is suspended.

 

viii If the holding has fallen below the lowest applicable threshold in accordance with national law, please note that it might not be necessary in accordance with national law to disclose the extent of the holding, only that the new holding is below that threshold.

 

ix In case of combined holdings of shares with voting rights attached “direct holding” and voting rights “indirect holding”, please split the voting rights number and percentage into the direct and indirect columns – if there is no combined holdings, please leave the relevant box blank.

 

x Date of maturity/expiration of the financial instrument i.e. the date when right to acquire shares ends.

 

xi If the financial instrument has such a period – please specify this period – for example once every 3 months starting from [date].

 

xii In case of cash settled instruments the number and percentages of voting rights is to be presented on a delta-adjusted basis (Article 13(1a) of Directive 2004/109/EC) (DTR 5.3.3.A).

 

xiii If the person subject to the notification obligation is either controlled and/or does control another undertaking then the second option applies.

 

xiv The full chain of controlled undertakings starting with the ultimate controlling natural person or legal entity has to be presented also in the cases, in which only on subsidiary level a threshold is crossed or reached and the subsidiary undertaking discloses the notification as only thus the markets get always the full picture of the group holdings. In case of multiple chains through which the voting rights and/or financial instruments are effectively held the chains have to be presented chain by chain leaving a row free between different chains (e.g.: A, B, C, free row, A, B, D, free row, A, E, F etc.).

 

xv The names of controlled undertakings through which the voting rights and/or financial instruments are effectively held have to be presented irrespectively whether the controlled undertakings cross or reach the lowest applicable threshold themselves.

 

xvi Example: Correction of a previous notification.

ECR Minerals #ECR – Technical Director Adam Jones Updates on Bumper Grades in Hole 34

Technical Director Adam Jones discusses the bumper gold grades in hole BH3DD034 at HR3, Bailieston. Adam talks through the gold grades discovered at different levels in zones 1-4, and outlines his conclusions for the collective data picture across the Maori Reef and Hard Up Reef. Alan asks whether there is a case for developing a mine on ECR’s land at Nagambie-Rushworth, and Adam discusses the the likely activities across the region. We then look at further developments at Creswick, technical target follow-ups and soil samples, before Adam outlines upcoming activities over the next few months, including drill rig movements, Blue Moon etc.

ECR Minerals #ECR – Multiple High Grade Gold Intercepts from hole BH3DD034 at HR3, Bailieston Victoria

ECR Minerals plc (LON: ECR), the exploration and development company focused on gold in Australia, is pleased to announce a progressive update from drilling at HR3, Bailieston with high gold intercepts received for hole BH3DD034. Visible gold was previously announced from this hole (see announcement dated 14th March 2022)

ECR Minerals plc has 100% ownership of the Bailieston Project (EL5433) which contains the gold prospects known as HR3, Cherry Tree, Blue Moon and Black Cat. The projects are operated by ECR’s Australian wholly owned subsidiary Mercator Gold Australia Pty Ltd (“MGA”).

ECR CEO Andrew Haythorpe commented: “This is an outstanding result, capably executed and delivered by Adam and the drill team. As a geologist myself, along with the team, I am excited by the continuity of grade and the manner in which the Maori Anticline is further revealing itself through each assay result. There is clearly much more to come.”

ECR Chairman David Tang added: “There is a palpable sense of excitement at ECR Minerals as the intensive drilling campaign across our Victoria assets is now, despite the delays in assay processing, yielding consistently high gold grades. I am delighted for Adam and the team – this exceptional result today and the continuity of grade between Zone 2 and Zone 3 could well indicate a significant find. We look forward to the remaining assay results from the adjacent holes.”

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Drillhole BH3DD034 returned four high gold grade intercepts at drilled depths; (0.3m@ 20.34 g/t Au from 18.2m), (0.65m @ 13.02 g/t Au from 54.2m), (0.3m @ 10.59 g/t Au from 97.9m) and (0.25m @ 45.0 g/t Au from 149.2m).
  • Visible gold recorded at 149.2m depth.
  • Mineralised zones show continuity to adjacent previously drilled intercepts in hole BH3DD019.

BH3DD034

Hole BH3DD034 was one of four holes completed as follow-up drilling to previously announced hole BH3DD019 (see announcement dated 2nd March 2022), where four mineralised ‘zones’ were identified down-hole. The location of this drilling is shown at the top of the plan in fig 2 (linked above). To date, drilling and geological logging has been completed with assay results pending for complimentary adjacent drillholes BH3DD032, BH3DD033 and BH3DD035.

Hole BH3DD034 was drilled between the 4th and 11th of April 2022, and finished at a total drilled depth of 167.5m. Drilling was completed over six working days averaging 28m per day, which includes mobilisation and setup time. Progress was initially hampered by water loss and broken ground within the first 100m of drilling.

Visible gold was reported at a depth of 149.2m, hosted within a narrow bedded laminated quartz vein. Gold specks up to a particle size of 2mm are present. This vein resulted in an intercept of 0.25m @ 45.0 g/t Au. The immediate wall rock either side of this vein is supported by low, sub-gram gold grades representing a mineralised drilled interval of 6.7m @ 2.13 g/t Au from 146.3m. Three other mineralised zones have been identified further up-hole including 0.3m @ 20.34 g/t Au from 18.2m, 0.65m @ 13.02 g/t Au from 54.2m and 0.3m @ 10.59 g/t Au from 97.9m. Each mineralised zone is approximately spaced throughout the drilled hole depth (see fig 1).

Arsenopyrite (sulphide) crystals in the shape of small lathes and needles were seen within the high-grade interval at 97.9m. Sulphides crystallised in this manner are known to be associated with good gold values, such as those at nearby deposits located at Nagambie and the Fosterville Fault zone.

ECR Geologists have linked some of the four mineralised zones in BH3DD034 to similar zones in hole BH3DD019. Intercepts in hole BH3DD019 are within 50m to the south of intercepts in BH3DD034. Details of the link between mineralised zones can be seen in fig 1. In particular, we have noted the continuity of grade between Zone 2 in BH3DD019 and Zone 3 in BH3DD034. Due to the broken nature of these intercepts, a clear understanding of the dip of mineralisation is not well understood at this stage. The laminated texture of the quartz and the relationship of the angle of quartz intercepts to bedding planes infers that the mineralised zone is likely to be bedding parallel in nature. The veins reside in the hanging-wall of a narrow fault where bedding dip angles change dramatically. This fault contains low gold mineralisation.

LOOKING FORWARD STATEMENTS

With the results of BH3DD034 now received, the board eagerly awaits the results of adjacent holes BH3DD032, BH3DD033 and BH3DD035. Despite the narrow nature of the reported mineralised zones, there is high optimism for continuity of mineralisation as seen currently by the correlating intercepts between hole BH3DD019 and BH3DD034.

It is becoming clear the fold hinge (termed the ‘Maori Anticline’) hosts multiple narrow faults and bedded veins that host gold-antimony (stibnite) mineralisation. Heading south from BH3DD034 toward the intersection of the Maori Reef with the Hard-Up Reef, drilling is now complete for hole BH3DD038. Logging is nearly complete, with samples already in waiting for completion of assays at the laboratory. Similar mineralised zones as seen in BH3DD034 have been identified in the latest drilling and the Company is looking forward to publishing these results in due course. The mineralised system is open immediately to the north of BH3DD034 and it is with this understanding that a complimentary drillhole will be undertaken within this vicinity.

ECR Minerals #ECR – Andrew Scott talks to Andrew Haythorpe

ECR Minerals CEO Andrew Haythorpe talks to Andrew Scott. Andrew discusses the reasons behind the appointment of Adam Jones – his technical knowledge and attention to detail which has resulted in some science based breakthroughs. Andrew says the board are looking at projects wider afield, and discusses the Danglay gold project in the Philippines before returning to Bailieston and the challenges created by the COVID driven assay delays. Andrew looks at Blue Moon, where there are good grades over 2m and a strong antimony association. The drill collars have all been planned by Adam, now awaiting drilling permissions. Andrew then looks at Lolworth, where access agreements have been made with landowners, and with field crews all set they could be ready to go in 6-8 weeks. Andrew looks at the Queensland structure, a multiple host environment, including large porphyry / breccia structures similar to Mt Leyshon & Kitston, plus epithermal veins (similar to Hemlo in Canada) and the historic Charters Towers mine. He concludes with the value opportunity – a great believer in Warren Buffet’s philosophy – why now – GARP – Growth at the Right Price – lots of growth opportunity, good commercial business and jv opportunities with neighbours.

I know he impressed our CEO on his recent trip to Victoria, and, looking forward, the Company will now benefit from his guidance and input on a higher strategic level.

ECR CEO Andrew Haythorpe added: “My decision to join ECR was very much influenced by the manner in which Adam has managed the Company’s ongoing drilling campaigns in Victoria as well as the skillset and vision demonstrated in his assessment and acquisition of the Lolworth Range project. My recent trip served to confirm my early impressions, and I very much look forward to working closely with him and benefitting from his expertise as we develop our asset portfolio.”
