Loan Agreement and Industrial Action

Loan Agreement

Further to the announcement dated 25 November 2016, regarding "the Loan Agreement" with Mr. Jia
Bang Wang, the Company wishes to report that it has received a further tranche of US$250,000. The
Company is currently working with Mr. Wang to assist with the release of the balance of the loan monies.

The board of directors are mindful of the Company's cash position, which has been improved by the
delivery of this tranche of the loan, and will continue to exercise prudence in its expenditure. The
Company will update the market on progress of the shipping, instalment and commissioning of the
Concentrator Circuit presently and will provide a further operational update in the coming days.

Industrial Relations Update

The negotiation of annual wage increases has ended in a dead lock, and the employees have embarked
on industrial action in the form of a strike. The Company and Union Officials have met at the CCMA to
resolve issues. To date, 10 May 2017, the Company has lost 5 days' production, as a direct result of
the strike.

On 9 May 2017, the picketing rules have been signed at the CCMA, thus allowing non-striking workers
to return to work. The operation will be run with skeleton staff in the interim.
