(f) In no circumstances will the inability of one or more members to access, or to continue to access, an electronic participation facility or facilities affect the validity of a meeting or any business conducted at meeting, provided that sufficient members are able to participate in the meeting as are required to constitute a quorum. (g) Nothing in this rule 13.7 is to be taken to limit the powers conferred on the Chair of the meeting by law. 13.8 Accidental omission The accidental omission to give notice to, or the non-receipt of notice by, any of those entitled to it does not invalidate any resolution passed at a meeting of members. 13.9 Class meetings Rules 13 to 17 apply to a separate meeting of a class of members as far as they are capable of application and modified as necessary.

A proxy, attorney or representative may, but need not, be a member. 15.8 Position of proxy or attorney if member present The appointment of a proxy or attorney is not revoked by the member attending and taking part in the general meeting, but if the member votes on a resolution, the proxy or attorney is not entitled to vote, and must not vote, as the member's proxy or attorney on the resolution. 15.9 Priority of conflicting appointments of attorney or representative If more than one attorney or representative appointed by a member is present at a meeting of members and the Company has not received notice of revocation of any of the appointments: (a) an attorney or representative appointed to act at that particular meeting may act to the exclusion of an attorney or representative appointed under a standing appointment; and Base Resources Limited Constitution 20 (b) subject to rule 15.9(a), an attorney or representative appointed under a more recent appointment may act to the exclusion of an attorney or representative appointed earlier in time. 15.10 More than two current proxy appointments An appointment of proxy by a member is revoked (or, in the case of a standing appointment, suspended for that particular meeting) if the Company receives a further appointment of proxy from that member which would result in there being more than two proxies of that member entitled to act at a meeting. The appointment of proxy made first in time is the first to be treated as revoked or suspended by this rule. 15.11 Continuing authority An act done at a meeting of members by a proxy, attorney or representative is valid even if, before the act is done, the appointing member: (a) dies or becomes mentally incapacitated; (b) becomes bankrupt or an insolvent under administration or is wound up; (c) revokes the appointment or revokes the authority under which the appointment was made by a third party; or (d) transfers the share to which the appointment relates, unless the Company has received written notice of the matter before the start or resumption of the meeting at which the vote is cast. 16.

Replaces section 250E(1) 2. See Listing Rule 6.9 Base Resources Limited Constitution 21 (b) on a poll every member entitled to vote who is present in person or by proxy, attorney or representative, or who has submitted a Direct Vote: (i) has one vote for every fully paid share held; and (ii) subject to paragraph (c), in respect of each partly paid share held has a fraction of a vote equal to the proportion which the amount paid bears to the total issue price of the share; and (c) unless: (i) permitted under the Listing Rules; and (ii) otherwise provided in the terms on which shares are issued, in calculating the fraction of a vote which the holder of a partly paid share has, the Company must not count an amount: (iii) paid in advance of a call; or (iv) credited on a partly paid share without payment in money or money's worth being made to the Company. 16.3 Casting vote of Chair If an equal number of votes is cast for and against a resolution at a meeting of members: (a) if the Chair of the meeting is not (or if the Chair were a member would not be) entitled to vote, the matter is decided in the negative; and (b) otherwise, the Chair has a casting vote whether or not the Chair is a member. 16.4 Votes of joint holders If there are joint holders of a share, any one of them may vote at a meeting of members, in person, by Direct Vote or by proxy, attorney or representative, as if that holder were the sole owner of the share. If more than one of the joint holders of a share (including, for the purposes of this rule, joint legal personal representatives of a dead member) are present at a meeting of members, in person or by proxy, attorney or representative, and tender a vote in respect of the share, the Company may only count the vote cast by, or on behalf of, the most senior joint holder who tenders a vote. For this purpose, seniority depends on the order in which the names of the joint holders are listed in the Register. If more than one of the joint holders sends a Direct Vote to the Company, only the Direct Vote sent by the joint holder whose name stands first in the Register counts. 16.5 Votes of transmittees and guardians Subject to section 1072C, if the Board is satisfied at least 48 hours before the time fixed for a meeting of members, that a person: (a) is entitled to the transmission of a share under rule 31; or (b) has power to manage a member's property under a law relating to the management of property of the mentally incapable, that person may vote as if registered as the holder of the share and the Company must not count the vote (if any) of the actual registered holder. Replaces section 250E(3) Base Resources Limited Constitution 22 16.6 Voting restrictions If: (a) the Act or the Listing Rules require that some members are not to vote on a resolution, or that votes cast by some members be disregarded, in order for the resolution to have an intended effect; and (b) the notice of the meeting at which the resolution is proposed states that fact, those members have no right to vote on that resolution and the Company must not count any votes purported to be cast by those members. If a proxy purports to vote in a way or in circumstances that contravene section 250A(4), on a show of hands the vote is invalid and the Company must not count it and on a poll rule 17.3(c) applies. 16.7 Decision on right to vote A Voting Member or Director may challenge a person's right to vote at a meeting of members. A challenge may only be made at the meeting. A challenge, or any other doubt as to the validity of a vote, must be decided by the Chair, whose decision is final. 17. HOW VOTING IS CARRIED OUT 17.1 Method of voting (a) Subject to rules 13.7(d), 17.1(b) and 17.2, each matter submitted to a general meeting is to be decided in the first instance on a show of hands of the members present and entitled to vote.

Subject to the terms of issue of shares, the rights attached to a class of shares are not treated as varied by the issue of further shares of that class. 24. CERTIFICATES 24.1 Uncertificated securities Unless the Listing Rules and the ASX Settlement Operating Rules allow the Company to issue a certificate for particular securities, the Company: (a) must not issue a certificate for those securities; and Base Resources Limited Constitution 28 (b) may cancel a certificate for them without issuing another certificate.

See Listing Rule 8.14 Base Resources Limited Constitution 29 26. PARTLY PAID SHARES 26.1 Fixed instalments If a share is issued on terms that some or all of the issue price is payable by instalments, the registered holder of the share must pay every instalment to the Company when due. If, having been given notice of the instalment in accordance with rule 26.4, the registered holder does not pay it when due, rules 26.7 to 26.16 apply as if the registered holder had failed to pay a call. 26.2 Prepayment of calls The Board may: (a) accept prepayment of some or all of the amount unpaid on a share above the sums actually called as a payment in advance of calls; (b) agree to payment by the Company of interest at a rate no higher than the Interest Rate on that part of the advance payment which for the time being exceeds the aggregate amount of the calls then made on the shares in respect of which it was paid; and (c) unless otherwise agreed between the member and the Company, repay the sum or part of it. 26.3 Calls made by Board Subject to the terms of issue of a share and to any special resolution passed under section 254N, the Board may: (a) make calls on a member for some or all of the money unpaid on a share held by that member; (b) make a call payable by instalments; and (c) revoke or postpone a call before the due date for payment. 26.4 Notice of call The Company must give a member on whom a call has been made or from whom an instalment is due, written notice of the call or instalment: (a) within the time limits; and (b) in the form, required by the Listing Rules. 26.5 Classes of shares The Board may issue shares on terms as to the amount of calls to be paid and the time for payment of those calls which are different as between the holders of those shares. The Board may make different calls on different classes of shares. 26.6 Obligation to pay calls Subject to section 1072E(8), a member subject to a call must pay the amount of the call to the payee named in the notice of call no later than the time specified in the notice. Joint holders of a share are jointly and severally liable for calls. See Listing Rule 6.24 and Appendix 6A, Rules 5 and 5.1 Base Resources Limited Constitution 30 26.7 Called Amounts If a call is not paid on or before the day specified for payment, the Board may require the member liable for the call to pay: (a) interest on the amount of the call at the Interest Rate from that day until payment is made; and (b) all costs and expenses incurred by the Company because payment was not made on that day. 26.8 Proof of call If on the hearing of an action for recovery of a Called Amount it is proved that: (a) the minute books of the Company record the Board's resolution making the call; (b) notice of the call was given under rules 26.4 and 36.1; and (c) the person sued appears in the Register as a holder of the share in respect of which the call was made, proof of those matters is conclusive proof of the debt. 26.9 Forfeiture notice At any time until a Called Amount is paid, the Board may give the relevant member a notice which: (a) requires the member to pay the Called Amount; (b) states the Called Amount at the date of the notice; (c) specifies how to calculate the Called Amount when payment is made; (d) specifies a date at least 14 days after the date of the notice by which and a place at which payment must be made; and (e) states that if payment is not made at that place on or before that date, the share to which the call relates is liable to be forfeited. 26.10 Forfeiture If the requirements of a notice given under rule 26.9 are not satisfied, the Board may forfeit the share in respect of which that notice was given (and all dividends, interest and other money payable in respect of that share and not actually paid before the forfeiture) by resolution passed before the Called Amount is paid. 26.11 Disposal and re-issue of forfeited shares A share forfeited under rule 26.10 immediately becomes the property of the Company. Subject to the Listing Rules, the Board, on behalf of the Company, may: (a) re-issue the share with or without any money paid on it by any former holder credited as paid; or (b) sell or otherwise dispose of the share, and effect or execute and register a transfer of it, to the person, and on the terms, it decides. See Listing Rule 7.39 Base Resources Limited Constitution 31 26.12 Notice of forfeiture The Company must promptly: (a) give notice of the forfeiture of a share to the member who held the share immediately before the resolution for forfeiture was passed; and (b) enter the forfeiture and its date in the Register. A written declaration that a share was forfeited on a specified date and notice of forfeiture was given in accordance with this document signed by a Director or Secretary is, in the absence of proof to the contrary, evidence of those facts and of the Company's right to dispose of the share. 26.13 Cancellation of forfeiture The Board may cancel the forfeiture of a share on any terms at any time before it disposes of that share under rule 26.11. 26.14 Effect of forfeiture A person who held a share which has been forfeited under rule 26.10 ceases to be a member in respect of that share but remains liable to pay the Called Amount until it is paid in full. The Board may elect not to enforce payment of an amount due to the Company under this rule. 26.15 Application of proceeds The Company must: (a) apply the net proceeds of any re-issue, sale or disposal of a forfeited share under rule 26.11 (after payment of all costs and expenses) to satisfy the Called Amount; and (b) subject to the terms of issue of the share, pay any surplus to the person who held the share immediately before forfeiture. 26.16 Title of new holder The title of the new holder of a forfeited share is not affected by any irregularity in the forfeiture or the re-issue, sale or disposal. The sole remedy of any person previously interested in the share is damages which may be recovered only from the Company. The new holder is not liable for the Called Amount. 26.17 Mortgage of uncalled capital If the Company grants a mortgage or charge over uncalled capital, the Board may delegate the power to make calls to: (a) the person in whose favour the mortgage or charge is granted; or (b) a trustee or agent for that person, on the terms (including power to further delegate) and subject to any restrictions the Board decides. If the Board does so, a call made in accordance with the delegation is treated as made by the Board. This rule does not limit rule 8. Base Resources Limited Constitution 32 27. COMPANY LIENS 27.1 Existence of liens Unless the terms of issue provide otherwise, the Company has a first and paramount lien on each share for: (a) all money called or payable at a fixed time in respect of that share (including money payable under rule 26.7) that is due but unpaid; and (b) amounts paid by the Company for which the Company is indemnified under rule 27.4. The lien extends to all dividends payable in respect of the share and to proceeds of sale of the share. 27.2 Sale under lien If: (a) the Company has a lien on a share; (b) an amount secured by the lien is due and payable; (c) the Company has given notice to the member registered as the holder of the share: (i) requiring payment of the amount which is due and payable and secured by the lien; (ii) stating the amount due and payable at the date of the notice; (iii) specifying how to calculate the amount due when payment is made; and (iv) specifying a date (at least 10 business days after the date of the notice) by which and a place at which payment of that amount must be made; and (d) the requirements of the notice given under paragraph (c) are not fulfilled, the Company may sell the share as if it had been forfeited under rule 26.10. Rules 26.11, 26.15 and 26.16 apply, to the extent practical and modified as necessary, as if the Called Amount in respect of that share were the aggregate of the amount referred to in paragraph (b) and the costs and expenses incurred by the Company because that amount was not paid when due. 27.3 Protection of lien The Company may do anything necessary or desirable under the ASX Settlement Operating Rules to protect a lien or other interest in shares to which it is entitled by law or under this document. 27.4 Indemnity for payments required to be made by the Company If the law of any jurisdiction imposes or purports to impose any immediate, future or possible liability on the Company, or empowers or purports to empower any person to require the Company to make any payment, on account of a member or referable to a share held by that member (whether alone or jointly) or a dividend or other amount payable in respect of a share held by that member, the Company: (a) is fully indemnified by that member from that liability; See Listing Rule 6.13 Base Resources Limited Constitution 33 (b) may recover as a debt due from the member the amount of that liability together with interest at the Interest Rate from the date of payment by the Company to the date of repayment by the member; and (c) subject to rule 30.5, may refuse to register a transfer of any share by that member until the debt has been paid to the Company. Nothing in this document in any way prejudices or affects any right or remedy which the Company has (including any right of set off) and, as between the Company and the member, any such right or remedy is enforceable by the Company. 28. DIVIDENDS 28.1 Accumulation of reserves The Board may: (a) set aside out of profits of the Company reserves to be applied, in the Board's discretion, for any purpose it decides and use any sum so set aside in the business of the Company or invest it in investments selected by the Board and vary and deal with those investments as it decides; (b) carry forward any amount out of profits which the Board decides not to distribute without transferring that amount to a reserve; or (c) do both. 28.2 Payment of dividends Subject to the Act, rules 28.3 and 28.11, and the terms of issue of shares, the Board may resolve to pay any dividend it thinks appropriate and fix the time for payment. The Company does not incur a debt merely by fixing the amount or time for payment of a dividend. A debt arises only when the time fixed for payment arrives. The decision to pay a dividend may be revoked by the Board at any time before then. 28.3 Amount of dividend Subject to the terms of issue of shares, the Company may pay a dividend on one class of shares to the exclusion of another class. Subject to rule 28.4, each share of a class on which the Board resolves to pay a dividend carries the right to participate in the dividend in the same proportion that the amount for the time being paid on the share bears to the total issue price of the share. 28.4 Prepayments, payments during dividend period and credits without payment For the purposes of rule 28.3: (a) an amount paid in advance of calls is not taken into account as part of the amount for the time being paid on a share; (b) if an amount was paid on a share during the period to which a dividend relates, the Board may resolve that only the proportion of that amount which is the same as the proportion which the period from the date of payment to the end of the period to which the dividend relates bears to the total period to which the dividend relates, counts as part of the amount for the time being paid on the share; and (c) an amount credited on a partly paid share without payment in money or money's worth being made to the Company is not taken into account as a part of the amount for the time being paid on a share. Paragraph (c) replaces section 1072F(3)(b) Replaces section 254U Base Resources Limited Constitution 34 28.5 Dividends in kind The Board may resolve to pay a dividend (either generally or to specific members) in cash or satisfy it by distribution of specific assets (including shares or securities of any other corporation), the issue of shares or the grant of options. If the Board satisfies a dividend by distribution of specific assets, the Board may: (a) fix the value of any asset distributed; (b) make cash payments to members on the basis of the value fixed so as to adjust the rights of members between themselves; and (c) vest an asset in trustees. 28.6 Payment of dividend by way of securities in another corporation Where the Company satisfies a dividend by way of distribution of specific assets, being shares or other securities in another corporation, each member is taken to have agreed to become a member of that corporation and to have agreed to be bound by the constitution of that corporation. Each member also appoints each Director and each Secretary their agent and attorney to: (a) agree to the member becoming a member of that corporation; (b) agree to the member being bound by the constitution of that corporation; and (c) execute any transfer of shares or securities, or other document required to give effect to the distribution of shares or other securities to that member. 28.7 Source of dividends Subject to the Act and the Listing Rules, the Board may resolve to pay a dividend to some members from a particular source and pay the same dividend to other members entitled to it from another source. 28.8 Method of payment The Company may pay any cash dividend, interest or other money payable in respect of shares by cheque sent, and may distribute assets by sending the certificates or other evidence of title to them, through the post directed to: (a) the address of the member (or in the case of a jointly held share, the address of the joint holder named first in the Register); or (b) to any other address the member (or in the case of a jointly held share, all the joint holders) directs in writing, or by any other method of payment or distribution the Board decides, including electronic transfer. 28.9 Treatment of payments (a) If the Board decides that payments will only be made by electronic transfer into an account (of a type approved by the Board) nominated by a member, but no such account is nominated by the member or an electronic transfer into a nominated account is rejected or refunded, the Company may credit the amount payable to an account of, or for the benefit of, the Company (including an account held by its share registry) to be held until the member nominates a valid account or it is disposed of in accordance with the laws relating to unclaimed monies. Base Resources Limited Constitution 35 (b) If the Board decides that a payment may be made to members by either: (i) electronic transfer into an account (of a type approved by the Board) nominated by a member; or (ii) cheque, then, where a member does not: (iii) have a registered address (or the Company believes that a member is not known at the member’s registered address); and (iv) the member has not nominated an account (of a type approved by the Board), the Company may credit an amount payable in respect of the member’s shares to an account of, or for the benefit of, the Company (including an account held by its share registry) to be held until the member claims the amount payable or nominates a valid account, or it is disposed of in accordance with the laws relating unclaimed monies. (c) An amount credited to an account under rules 28.9(a) or 28.9(b) is to be treated as having been paid to the member at the time it is credited to that account. The Company will not be a trustee of the money and no interest will accrue on the money. 28.10 Joint holders' receipt Any one of the joint holders of a share may give an effective receipt for any dividend, interest or other money payable in relation to that share. 28.11 Retention of dividends by Company The Company may retain the dividend payable on a share: (a) of which a person seeks to be registered as the holder under rule 31.2 or 31.3, until that person is registered as the holder of that share or transfers it; or (b) on which the Company has a lien, to satisfy the liabilities in respect of which the lien exists. 28.12 No interest on dividends No member may claim, and the Company must not pay, interest on a dividend (either in money or kind). 29. SHARE PLANS 29.1 Implementing share plans The Board may adopt and implement one or more of the following plans on such terms as it thinks appropriate: (a) a re-investment plan under which any dividend or other cash payment in respect of a share or convertible security may, at the election of the person entitled to it, be: (i) retained by the Company and applied in payment for fully paid shares issued under the plan; and Base Resources Limited Constitution 36 (ii) treated as having been paid to the person entitled and simultaneously repaid by that person to the Company to be held by it and applied in accordance with the plan; (b) any other plan under which members or security holders may elect that dividends or other cash payments in respect of shares or other securities: (i) be satisfied by the issue of shares or other securities of the Company or a related body corporate, or that issues of shares or other securities of the Company or a related body corporate be made in place of dividends or other cash payments; (ii) be paid out of a particular reserve or source; or (iii) be forgone in consideration of another form of distribution from the Company, another body corporate or a trust; or (c) a plan under which shares or other securities of the Company or a related body corporate may be issued or otherwise provided for the benefit of employees or Directors of the Company or any of its related bodies corporate. 29.2 Board's powers and varying, suspending or terminating share plans The Board: (a) has all powers necessary or desirable to implement and carry out a plan referred to in rule 29.1 (including a plan approved by members); and (b) may: (i) vary the rules governing; or (ii) suspend or terminate the operation of, a plan referred to in rule 29.1 (including a plan approved by members) as it thinks appropriate. 30. TRANSFER OF SHARES 30.1 Modes of transfer Subject to this document, a member may transfer a share by any means permitted by the Act or by law. Unless permitted by the Listing Rules, the Company must not charge any fee on transfer of a share. 30.2 Market obligations The Company: (a) may do anything permitted by the Act, the Listing Rules or the ASX Settlement Operating Rules that the Board thinks necessary or desirable in connection with the Company taking part in a computerised or electronic system established or recognised by the Act, the Listing Rules or the ASX Settlement Operating Rules for the purpose of facilitating dealings in shares; and (b) must comply with obligations imposed on it by the Listing Rules or the ASX Settlement Operating Rules in relation to transfers of shares.

Property in and title to a document of transfer that is delivered to the Company (but not the shares to which it relates) passes to the Company on delivery. 30.4 Restricted securities If, at any time, the Company has securities on issue classified by ASX as ‘restricted securities’, then despite any other provision of this document: (a) a holder of restricted securities must not dispose of, or agree or offer to dispose of, the securities during the escrow period applicable to those securities except as permitted by the Listing Rules or ASX; (b) if the restricted securities are in the same class as quoted securities, the holder will be taken to have agreed in writing that the restricted securities are to be kept on the Company’s issuer sponsored subregister and are to have a holding lock applied for the duration of the escrow period applicable to those securities; (c) the Company must refuse to acknowledge any disposal (including, without limitation, to register any transfer) of restricted securities during the escrow period applicable to those securities except as permitted by the Listing Rules or ASX; (d) a holder of restricted securities will not be entitled to participate in any return of capital on those securities during the escrow period applicable to those securities except as permitted by the Listing Rules or ASX; and (e) if a holder of restricted securities breaches a restriction deed or a provision of this constitution restricting a disposal of those securities, the holder will not be entitled to any dividend or distribution, or to exercise any voting rights, in respect of those securities for so long as the breach continues. 30.5 Refusal to register transfer The Board: (a) may refuse to register a transfer of shares only if that refusal would not contravene the Listing Rules or the ASX Settlement Operating Rules; (b) without limiting paragraph (a), but subject to the Act, the Listing Rules and the ASX Settlement Operating Rules, may refuse to register a transfer of shares where the registration of the transfer would create a new holding of an Unmarketable Parcel; (c) subject to section 259C, must not register a transfer to a subsidiary of the Company; and Replaces section 1072F(2) Replaces section 1072F(3) Base Resources Limited Constitution 38 (d) must not register a transfer if the Act, the Listing Rules or the ASX Settlement Operating Rules forbid registration.

If section 1072C applies, this rule is supplemental to it. 31.4 Refusal to register holder The Company has the same right to refuse to register a personal representative or person entitled to shares on the insolvency or mental incapacity of a member as it would have if that person were the transferee named in a transfer signed by a living, solvent, competent member. 32.
