Investors outside Australia should note that while ore reserve and mineral resource estimates of the Company in this document comply with the JORC Code (such JORC Code-compliant ore reserves and mineral resources being "Ore Reserves" and "Mineral Resources" respectively), they may not comply with the relevant guidelines in other countries and, in particular, do not comply with (i) National Instrument 43-101 (Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects) of the Canadian Securities Administrators (the "Canadian NI 43-101 Standards"); or (ii) Industry Guide 7, which governs disclosures of mineral reserves in registration statements filed with the SEC. Information contained in this document describing mineral deposits may not be comparable to similar information made public by companies subject to the reporting and disclosure requirements of Canadian or US securities laws. In particular, Industry Guide 7 does not recognise classifications other than proven and probable reserves and, as a result, the SEC generally does not permit mining companies to disclose their mineral resources in SEC filings. You should not assume that quantities reported as “resources” will be converted to reserves under the JORC Code or any other reporting regime or that the Company will be able to legally and economically extract them. This Presentation contains references to Mineral Resource and Ore Reserves estimates, which have been extracted from the Company’s ASX announcements on 4 May 2022 titled “Resource Update” and on 2 September 2021 titled “Feasibility Study 2 - Fully Funded to Production”. See page 39 for a summary of the Project’s Mineral Resources and Ore Reserves. This Presentation also contains references to Exploration Results which have been extracted from various ASX announcements dated as indicated throughout this Presentation. The Company confirms that it is not aware of any new information or data that materially affects the information included in the said announcements, and in the case of estimates of Mineral Resources and Ore Reserves, that all material assumptions and technical parameters underpinning the estimates in the relevant market announcements continue to apply and have not materially changed. The Company confirms that the form and context in which the Competent Persons’ findings are presented have not materially modified from the original market announcements. The Company first reported the production targets and forecast financial information derived from its production targets in accordance with Listing Rules 5.16 and 5.17 in its ASX announcement on 2 September 2021. The Company confirms that all material assumptions underpinning the production targets and the forecast financial information derived from the production targets continue to apply and have not materially changed. FINANCIAL DATA All dollar values are in Australian dollars (A$ or AUD) unless otherwise stated. The information contained in this Presentation may not necessarily be in statutory format. Amounts, totals and change percentages are calculated on whole numbers and not the rounded amounts presented. The pro forma historical financial information provided in this Presentation is for illustrative purposes only and is not represented as being indicative of the Company’s views on its future financial condition and/or performance. The pro forma historical financial information has been prepared by the Company in accordance with the measurement and recognition requirements, but not the disclosure requirements, of applicable accounting standards and other mandatory reporting requirements in Australia. 4 Investment Highlights The completed funding solution sees BGL fully funded into production with total liquidity of $351m as at 31 March 2022 to fund the $252m capex from Feasibility Study (FS2) released in September 2021 One of the highest-grade, lowest cost mines in Australia with the FS2 highlighting first 5 years forecast to produce over 200kozpa and a life of mine production of 183kozpa for over 8 years, 1Moz Reserve with grade of 6.1g/t and an All In Sustaining Cost of A$1,014/oz 1 FS2 highlighted sector leading EBITDA margins of 66% and A$1.8b of pre-tax free cash flow 1 and will be one of only 8 assets in Tier 1 jurisdictions that produce over 180kozpa at a head grade over 5g/t gold Significant upside potential with multiple drill rigs turning, low delivery costs of A$18 per Resource oz and a Resource that is growing at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 81%; Recent MRE update to 1.7Moz @ 11.2g/t of Indicated and a Global Resource of 3.1Moz @ 9.9g/t to be incorporated into an upcoming project optimisation study and updated Reserve estimate 2 Committed to sustainable mining practices and forecast to be the lowest Greenhouse Gas emitting gold mine on a per ounce basis in Australia, with a vision to be one of Australia’s best-in-class ‘Green and Gold’ miners that will generate $2.3B of economic value add into the economy Significantly de-risked with over 4,570m of underground development already completed, 5 independent mining areas by first production and over 484,000m of diamond drilling completed at the project and with simple metallurgy and recoveries of 96.7% Fully funded to production with total liquidity of $351m as at 31 March 2022 to fund the dual track strategy of project development and exploration with $252m capex from the updated FS2 study 1. Based off FS2 study and assuming a A$2,400/oz gold price. 2. Refer ASX announcement dated 4 May 2022 The production targets in this Presentation are underpinned by approximately 29.8% Inferred Mineral Resources. There is a low level of geological confidence associated with Inferred Mineral Resources and there is no certainty that further exploration work will result in the determination of Indicated Mineral Resources or that the production target itself will be realised. 5 The BGL Value Proposition: Exploiting Our Competitive Advantages GROWTH Only ~50% of the BGL Resource sits within the 1.5Moz mine plan. Further upside potential from conversion drilling, low discovery costs of A$18/oz STRATEGIC ESG FOCUS Forecast to be the lowest Greenhouse Gas emitter per ounce on the ASX with a vision to be one of Australia’s best-in-class ‘Green and Gold’ miners and well insulated for any future carbon tax legislation GRADE & SCALE One of the highest-grade, lowest cost mines with an All in Sustaining Cost of A$1,014/oz 1 ; and one of the fastest growing gold developments globally in a Tier 1 mining jurisdiction 10.0g/t PROFITABILITY The project is forecast to deliver sector leading EBITDA Margins of 66% and A$1.8b of free cashflow pre-tax (assuming a A$2,400/oz gold price) over the initial 8.1 year mine life 1 2.4 Moz + at 9.9g/t 3.1Moz 72% IRR A$1.8b FCF One of Australia’s highest-grade gold mines, with exciting exploration potential and an accelerated development timeline that is fully funded to production VALUE ACCRETION FROM CONSTRUCTION TO PRODUCTION Comparable single asset development companies experienced on average share price appreciation of +163% between announcing the start of construction and reaching commercial production (Slide 8) 1.
