Mr Kirkham consents to the inclusion of this information in the form and context in which they occur. 2 . See Prospectus dated 16 September 2020 and ASX release dated 23 July 2020 “Lustrum to Acquire Copper Projects in Canada and Namibia” 14 In June 2020, a JORC (2012) compliant resource (reported by G. Kirkham) was completed at the Lynx deposit representing approximately 600 metres of a 12km trend of mineralisation on the Onaman property. Inferred Mineral Resources with reasonable prospects for eventual economic extraction have been estimated at Lynx in conformance with the JORC Code (2012) as detailed in Table 1.

Metal equivalents were calculated using appropriate prices and recoveries as outlined in JORC Table included in Schedule 5 and using the following equation : CuEq = 0 . 85 *Cu ( % ) + 0 . 343 *Au (g/t) + 0 . 004 *Ag (g/t) . Tonnage is reported as dry tonnes .
