See Slide 20 for full Reserve Estimate Boab Metals Limited ASX:BML Boab Metals Limited ASX:BML 6 Effective and efficient r esource definition Drilling by Boab Metals at Sorby Hills has delivered continued growth in Resource size and confidence. ? The Phase IV drilling program was primarily designed to acquire core for the DFS Metallurgical and Geotechnical test work. ? In addition to achieving its primary objectives Phase IV drilling materially increased Resource confidence and identified sig nif icant opportunities to expand the scope DFS mining and processing capacity. Post Phase IV drilling, an interim Mineral Resource Estimate increased Measured Resources by 54% (98kt Pb and 3Moz Ag). Measured and Indicated Resources comprises 92% of the current mining inventory. Sorby Hills orebodies are large, shallow and gently dipping Mineral Resource Estimates reported at 1.0% Pb cut - off (Pb Domains only), Zn is not included.

Drill rig in action during the recently completed Phase V drilling program Boab Metals Limited ASX:BML 8 DFS metallurigcal testwork results Recently finalised metallurgical testwork has confirmed high recoveries 1 up to 95%Pb (Fresh Ore) and 90%Pb (Oxidised Ore); up to 87%Ag (Fresh Ore) and 92%Ag (Oxidised Ore) ? Some 1,420kg of core recovered from 35 HQ diamond drill holes completed during the Phase IV and V drill program utilised for testwork including: • Flotation, • Comminution, • Mineralogy, • Heavy Liquid Separation, • Tailings Thickening, • Concentrate Filtration; and • Concentrate analysis. ? Results have revealed separate flotation of Oxidised and Fresh Ore will deliver significant uplift in metal recovery across the Life of Mine versus blended ore treatment. Core recovered from the Phase V drilling program at Sorby Hills 1. See ASX announcement 19 November 2021 Boab Metals Limited ASX:BML 9 Potential increase in project scope Phase V drilling aimed support an expanded processing capacity at Sorby Hills by targeting: • Resources located outside but adjacent to the PFS Open Pit designs. • Conversion of I nferred R esou rces contained in the PFS Open pit designs to increase the Ore Reserve. • high - grade Resources located at Alpha ( 2.0Mt at 5.0% PbEq.) 1 and Beta (3.3Mt at 6.3% PbEq.) 1 which to date have been excluded from Mine Plan optimisations. Key benefits of an expanded processing plant may include: • Higher operating margins; • Stronger operating cash flows; and • I ncreased value for Boab shareholders. The Sorby Hills PFS Mine Plan comprised a total of 14.8Mt ore at 4.7% PbEq. being processed through a 1.5Mtpa process plant o ver 10 years. 1. See Slide 19 for full Mineral Resource Estimate. Refer to appendix for Pb Equivalent calculations Results from phase IV and V drilling and the DFS Metallurgical program will act as key inputs to an investigation into the potential to expand the proposed processing capacity at Sorby Hills Drill rig in action during the recently completed Phase V drilling program Boab Metals Limited ASX:BML 10 Project financing Boab is well progressed on preparing the Sorby Hills Project for project financing Boab has engaged BurnVoir Corporate Finance to advise on, analyse and arrange a project finance solution for the Sorby Hills Project. The Company has engaged with Australia Government financing agencies • Northern Australian Infrastructure Facility (“ NAIF ”); or • Export Finance Australia (“ EFA ”), Australia’s export credit agency (“ ECA ”). ? Sorby Hills has passed through Stage 1 (Initial Review) of the NAIF’s updated three - Stage debt finance assessment and approval process and will look to advance to Stage 2 (Detailed Review) as the Company moves toward a Decision to Mine*. ? Boab has received a Letter of Support from EFA with regards to potentially providing direct or in - direct financing support to the Project. In addition to the Australia Government financing agencies Boab has had ongoing positive engagement with a number of Australian and international commercial banks. *At this stage, NAIF and EFA has not made any decision to offer finance and there is no certainty that an agreement will be reached between the parties Representatives from NAIF and Commercial Banks together with Boab Senior management looking out over the Sorby Hills deposit (Oct 21) Boab Metals Limited ASX:BML 11 Sorby Hills offtake and joint venture progress Tier - 1 offtakers have confirmed a strong appetite for the Sorby Hills Lead - Silver concentrate ? The Sorby Hills Project is located only 150km by sealed road to from the Port of Wyndham. ? Boab is currently in the advanced stages of a competitive offtake tender process for their 75% share of the Sorby Hills concentrate. ? The execution of binding offtake agreements will be a key pillar supporting the securing of project finance for Sorby Hills. JV Partner Yuguang supportive of accelerated development ? Yuguang has reaffirmed their strong appetite for the Sorby Hills Lead - Silver concentrate and potentially increasing their offtake participation above that which they are currently entitled by virtue of their 25% joint venture interest in the Project ? Yuguang has confirmed their commitment to the accelerated development of the Project and working constructively with Boab to ensuring the Project is bankable and fully - financed. Wyndham Port (Source: Cambridge Gulf Limited) Boab Metals Limited ASX:BML 12 Establishing enduring legacy within the local community Boab is a proud corporate citizen in the Kimberley and keen to play their part in improving economic and social outcomes in the region. ?

Funded up to Final Investment Decision Boab Metals Limited ASX:BML 14 Strategic Acquisition of Manbarrum Zinc - Lead - Silver Project Location of the Manbarrum Project relative to the Sorby Hills and Eight Mile Creek Projects. Boab has recently acquired a 100% interest in the Manbarrum Zinc - Lead - Silver Project Key h ighli ghts include: • Manbarrum is strategically located 25km east of the Sorby Hills Lead - Silver - Zinc Project. • Mineral Resources declared at two prospects within the Manbarrum project area 1 ; • Conceptual open pit mining studies completed by CSA Global in 2018 identified the opportunity to improve project economics via toll treating at a future plant located at Sorby Hills; and • 175km 2 of prospective tenements (including two granted mining leases) covering geology genetically related to that found at Sorby Hills allowing for an effective transfer of technical knowledge. • The Zinc dominant nature of the Manbarrum deposit may upgrade the Zinc potential for the Sorby Hills Project. The Sorby Hills PFS did not consider Zinc to be payable in concentrate. 1 Refer to the Todd River Resources prospectus dated 4 April 2017 2 Refer BML Announcement 21 July 2021 Thank you Simon Noon – Managing Director & CEO info@BoabMetals.com www.BoabMetals.com www.linkedin.com/company/boab - metals 16 Board and management Technical team David English - Chief Operating Officer Kevin Reynolds - Project Metallurgist Simon Dorling - Exploration Manager Wealth of experience gained in operations and project development across some of Australia’s most prominent resource projects and processing operations.

Silver Equivalent Calculations • Lead recovery of 93.3% (weighted average of oxide and fresh Pb recoveries); and • Lead Payability rate of 95%. It is Boab’s opinion that all elements included in the metal equivalent calculation have a reasonable potential to be recovered and sold. The formula used to calculate lead equivalent grade is: Metal Eq (percent) = G pri + (G pri × [? i R i S i V i G i ]/(R pri S pri V pri G pri )) where R is the respective metallurgical metal recovery rate, S is the respective smelter return rate, V is metal price/tonne or ounce, and G is the metal commodity grade for the suite of potentially recoverable commodities ( i ) relative to the primary metal ( pri ). Metal equivalents are highly dependent on the metal prices used to derive the formula. Boab notes that the metal equivalence method used above is a simplified approach. The metal prices are based on the PFS values adopted and do not reflect the metal prices that a smelter would pay for concentrate nor are any smelter penalties or charges included in the calculation. Owing to limited metallurgical data, zinc grades are not included at this stage in the lead equivalent grade calculation. Boab Metals Limited ASX:BML
