Construction of the Retreatment Project

As previously disclosed, on March 1, 2018, the Company and its subsidiary Barplats Mines (Pty) Limited (“Barplats”)
entered into a framework agreement (the “UG Agreement”) with Union Goal Offshore Solutions Limited (“Union
Goal”) relating to construction, mining and processing of the tailing resource and offtake of chrome concentrate from
the Barplats Zanfontein UG2 tailings facility (the “Retreatment Project”) located at the Company’s Crocodile River
Mine in South Africa (“CRM”). The Company and Union Goal have extended the completion of all the conditions
precedent of the UG Agreement until July 15, 2018.

The Company continues the construction phase of the Retreatment Project with the expected completion date
estimated at the end of Q3 2018. Construction work on the chrome processing circuit continues to progress well while
work continues on schedule at the tailings facility to prepare for the mining phase and good progress continues on
building the walls for the deposition of tailings with the target for initial production remaining the fall of 2018. The
estimated total capital requirements for Barplats in relation to the Retreatment Project remain at ZAR 191,242,000
(US$14,389,000) with costs in the amount of ZAR32,759,000 (US$ 2,465,000) incurred to May 31, 2018.
