“We appreciate investors’  support for this fundraising and the recent placing, the combined funds  have now placed us in the position to recommence  and  aggressively  pursue  ground  operations  in  our  Lake  Victoria  Goldfields operations,  including  the  recently  acquired  Imweru  and  Lubando  licenses,  which  currently hold  a  JORC  compliant  Total  Mineral  Resource  of  798,000  ounces  of  gold  (See  Resource Table in attached file).

In addition, all exploration costs relating to the Company’s Haneti Nickel PGMs and Gold project are being covered by Votorantim under our Joint Venture Agreement. As announced on 9th September, our work programme at Haneti is on track and generating very valuable
and encouraging data.

The Company is also in very advanced discussions with our Korean partners EWP, on the further development of the Rukwa Coal to Power Project (“RCPP”) and we hope to update the market shortly in this regard. Latest developments have shown a keen interest for participation in the RCPP from potential funding institutions, as well as growing support from key stakeholders.

We are now well positioned and focused to progress all elements of the Kibo business.”
