2.   Basis of presentation
     The Group is domiciled in South Africa. The audited summarised consolidated financial results at and for the year ended
     27 December 2016 comprise the company and its subsidiaries (the 'Group').
     The Group's principal accounting policies are in terms of International Financial Reporting Standard (IFRS), and have been 
     applied consistently over the current and prior financial years.
     On 5 March 2014 the company announced that the board of directors had taken the decision, subject to approval by the
     company's shareholders, to discontinue the operations in a phased and orderly manner during 2014 and to realise value for
     the company's assets during 2014 and 2015. The decision was approved at the Annual General Meeting of the company held
     on 9 May 2014. The company will be wound down and deregistered in due course. The above information highlights that the
     going concern principle is not applicable in the preparation of the company's financial statements. When the company ceases
     trading the directors are of the opinion that the company will be in a position to discharge all of its liabilities, due to the 
     company's cash resources and to recover the assets at their carrying amounts. The effect, if any, of preparing the summarised 
     consolidated financial statements, other than on the going concern basis will be negligible. Consequently the financial 
     statements have been prepared on a basis consistent with IFRS which among other things, requires writing assets down to their 
     recoverable amounts. It also requires recognising a liability for contractual commitments that may have become onerous as a 
     consequence of the decision to cease trading.

     The Group's consolidated summarised financial results have been prepared in accordance with the requirements of the
     JSE Limited Listings Requirements for Provisional Financial Statements, and the requirements of the Companies Act of South
     Africa applicable to summarised consolidated financial statements. The Listings Requirements require Provisional reports to
     be prepared in accordance with the framework concepts and the measurement and recognition requirements of IFRS, the SAICA Financial 
     Reporting Guides as issued by the Accounting Practices Committee, Financial Pronouncements as issued by the Financial Reporting 
     Standards Council, and as a minimum contain the information required by IAS 34: Interim Financial Reporting.

     The directors take full responsibility for the preparation of the provisional report and the financial information has been correctly
     extracted from the underlying annual financial statements.

     The auditors, Deloitte & Touche, have issued their unmodified opinion on the consolidated financial statements for the year ended
     27 December 2016. The auditor's report contains an emphasis of matter paragraph regarding the basis of preparation used to
     prepare the consolidated and separate financial statement in the current year: "Without qualifying our opinion, we draw attention
     to the basis of preparation note, Note 1.2, in the consolidated and seperate financial statements regarding the basis of preparation
     used to prepare the consolidated and separate financial statements in the current year." The audit was conducted in accordance
     with International Standards on Auditing. This provisional report has been derived from the consolidated financial statements
     and consistent in all material respects, with the consolidated financial statements. Copies of their audit reports on these summarised 
     consolidated financial statements and consolidated financial statement are available for inspection at the Company's registered office. 
     Any reference to future financial performance included in this announcement, has not been audited or reported on by the Company's auditors. 
     The auditor does not report on the commentary hereon.

     Shareholders are advised that, in order to obtain a full understanding of the nature of the auditor's engagement, they should
     obtain a copy of the auditor's report together with the accompanying financial information from the company's registered office.

The Group realised a comprehensive income of R13.9 million for the year compared to a loss of R37.2 million for the previous year. The
main contributors to the profit were interest earned and adjustments to certain provisions.

Total interest earned during the year on cash investments was R9.4 million.

The adjustments made to provisions included R9 million to the rehabilitation provision, R3.6 million to the provision for retention incentives,
and R2.4 million to the provision made during 2015 for brokerage fees.
The Group's expenses relating to the discontinuation of its businesses totalled R11.3 million, including R3.0 million for management and
staff, R2.0 million of administration expenses, R1.5 million for general works, and R3.0 million for continuing the Nelspruit plant site's
committed electrical supply.

Net cash utilised by operations during the year totalled R41.7 million (2015: R14.6 million). Working capital increased during the year by
R4.1 million (2015: decrease of R93.6 million).

The Group's year end cash balances decreased by R81.8 million from R185.6 million to R103.8 million, reflecting net cash utilised by
operations (R41.6 million) and the payment of a dividend of 100 cents per share (R49.1 million).

The only remaining non-current assets held by the Group is the plant site in Nelspruit. Efforts to market the plant site continue. The sale
of the plant site most likely will require closure of the outstanding remediation order or a transaction that otherwise addresses the Group's
outstanding obligations to remediate and monitor the site.

Efforts also continue to address outstanding matters related to the Group's former plant site in Newcastle, Australia and the former calciner
plant in Hotazel, South Africa. These matters will need to be resolved before the Company can be delisted and deregistered.
The Group intends to pay a dividend after the Nelspruit plant site is sold and thereafter to delist and deregister the Company and to pay
a final dividend.

On 31 May 2016 Mr Collin Naicker resigned as Operational Director.

These summarised consolidated financial statements have been prepared by EJ Nel CA(SA) in her capacity as Financial Director of the Group.
