This initial stage of the research centered on c haracterisation of the mine ralogy and geochronology of select sample s from Weednanna . • Mine design optimization work progressed significantly during the quarter with several optimized pit shells (Whittle 3D) generated for varying Au and Fe commodity prices. T he Weednanna processing p lant design detailed review is nearing completion with major components and long lead time items being selected and identified . • A regional exploration target review of the Wilcherry Hill tenements was completed identifying 174 targets, predominantly Iron, G old and Silver/Lead/Zinc. The review will be used to prioritise our ongoing regional exploration program at Wilcherry Hill. • Evaluation of alternative / Green energy solutions for the Weednanna project co ntinued with a Risk workshop undertaken to identify potential risks for the various power generation options being investigated. Detailed analysis of each power option is currently underway to determine the scale of infrastructure required to meet site demand, capital and operating costs, security of genera ting capacity and indicative costs for each option. Options assessed include PV (solar) with b attery storage, Wind generation, conventional diesel generation and combinations of all three options. • Travel r estrictions imposed due to the Covid - 19 virus conti nued to cause disruptions to corporate and exploration activities during the quarter. Commencement of the recent Diamond drilling program was delayed due to the inability of contractor personnel to access South Australia. Personnel continue to work remotel y from the c orporate office and access to South Australian exploration locations remains restricted due to interstate travel restrictions and quarantine requirements. • Cash reserves of $ 2.02 million a s at 3 0 September 20 2 1 . WILCHERRY PROJECT, SOUTH AUSTRALIA (100%) Weednanna Exploration • Following the validation of the regional database earlier in the year, a detailed review of the regional database was completed to identify and rank the 174 targets identified. The level of geological knowledge on each target ranges from conceptual (based on magnetics or gravity) to detailed resource (based on drilling) and will be used to plan future exploration programs at Wilcherry Hill. The region has historically been explored for base metals and iron over the past 2 decades, however the detailed review has identified Iron, Gold and Silver/lead/zinc targets with a QUARTERLY REPORT Alliance Resources Ltd - Quarterly Report for Period Ended 3 0 September 2021 2 further 32 conceptual structural and magnetic targets . This information will be used to plan our regional exploration program in coming years. • The diamond drilling program , originally planned for June , commenced during the quarter to provide diamond core for geotechnical evaluation for the mine and processing plant location and include s 1 deeper hole to test gold mineralisation extensions of the Weednanna resources, below the current Mineral Resource Estimate. • The next phase of exploration RC drilling i s planned, to commence in Q4 2021 to infill areas within the Weednanna resource where drill density is considered too wide and to test northern extensions to the resource between shoots 7, 8 and 3. Drilling around shoot 3 is designed to upgrade the resource from the inferred to indicated resource category, allowing this material to be included in the mine d esign and scheduling. • Rehabilitation of old exploration tracks and past drill programs continued during the quarter to comply with tenement requirement s . Weednanna Study W ork • The design of the Weednanna processing plant , completed during the last quarter i s currently being reviewed in detail to ensure the target metallurgical parameters will be achieved . Review and selection of major components and long lead time items is currentl y underway. • Detailed open pit design and cost analysis works for the Weednanna project c ontinued during the quarter with several open pit optimi s ation runs completed for gold and iron ore. Preliminary cost models were reviewed for each design, and various staged mining operations reviewed. Work will progress to the review of underground ore shoot s to determine potential mining mechanisms and the waste dump modelling . • Weather data collection is ongoing and the s urface hydrological modelling was completed d uring the quarter . Noise monitoring equipment was removed from site following sufficient data collected to update the historic site noise database. WEST AUSTRALIAN EXPLORATION Nepean Project (E15/1658) • No on - ground activities were undertaken during the quarter due to the focusing on completion of the Weednanna project evaluation, regional database validation work and rolling restrictions on interstate travel as a result of Covid - 19 . • The next phase of exp loration planned at the Project is aircore drilling to test for gold in regolith anomalism, which may be used as a vector towards a primary gold deposit . • An aboriginal heritage survey is planned at the Hawkesbury and Penrith prospects to provide clearance for the planned aircore drilling program in early 2022. This heritage survey is planned to be completed during October 2021. Kalgoorlie South Project (E26/208, P26/4460 - 63, P15/6389, & PLA26/4458 - 4459) • An aeromagnetic survey has been designed to collect hi gh resolution magnetic imagery over the northern area of the Kalgoorlie South Project. The survey area is constrained to the north by the Kalgoorlie Nickel Smelter and to the south by effective historic RAB and aircore drilling completed by Newcrest in 200 1 .

Otherwise, a figure for the estimated quarters of funding available must be included in item 8.7. I f i tem 8 . 7 is less than 2 quarters, please provide answers to the followi ng questions: 8.8. 1 Does the entity expect that it will continue to have the current level of net operating cash flows for the time being and, if not, why not? Answer: Yes 8.8.2 Has the entity taken any steps, or does it propose to take any steps, to raise further cash to fund its operations and, if so, what are those steps and how likely does it believe that they will be successful? Appendix 5B Mining exploration entity or oil and gas exploration entity quarterly cash flow report A SX Listing Rules Appendix 5B ( 17 / 07 / 20 ) Page 5 + See chapter 19 of the ASX Listing Rules for defined terms. Answer: The entity proposes to raise new equity through a capital raising in due course. The major shareholder companies associated with the director Mr Ian Gandel, namely Gandel Metals Pty Ltd and Abbotsleigh Pty Ltd , currently collectively own 72.18 % of the issued capital of the entity and have committed to participate in any capital raisings fo r the next 12 months , thus providing the entity with a solid platform to raise sufficient capital to continue to fund its operations. This commitment, coupled with the entity’s history of successfully raising funds, plus the fact that the top 20 sharehold ers own in excess of 90% of the entity’s issued capital leads the Board of Directors to believe any capital raising will be successful. . 8.8.3 Does the entity expect to be able to continue its operations and to meet its business objectives and, if so, on what basis? Answer: The entity does expect that it will be able to continue its operations and to meet its business objectives based on the entity’s expectations to raise capital as detailed in Answer 8.8.2 above Note: where item 8.7 is less than 2 quarters, all of questions 8.8.1, 8.8.2 and 8.8.3 must be answered.
