Pan African is pleased to inform shareholders that the South African Department of Mineral
Resources and Energy (DMRE) has granted the renewal of the Company’s Barberton Mining Rights
for a period of 30 years.

Official notification of the grant of the renewal in terms of section 24 of the Mineral and Petroleum
Resources Development Act, 2002 (Act 28 of 2002) (MPRDA) was received by the Group on 1 June
2021, and comprises renewals of the mining rights for the Fairview, New Consort and Sheba Mines
(all of Pan African’s Barberton mining rights).

The renewal applications submitted by the Company included detailed technical reports and mine
works programmes that support mining at the Barberton operations for the 30-year renewal period.

Pan African CEO Cobus Loots commented:

“Our exploration and mining teams at Barberton have made exceptional progress over the past years,
applying modern exploration, development and mining techniques to increase underground gold
production and the lives of our mining operations. We view the granting of the mining right renewals
by the DMRE for a 30-year period as an endorsement of our efforts and operations.

As one of the largest employers in the Barberton area, Pan African has invested significantly in, and
will continue to invest in community and ESG initiatives, including community infrastructure and large
scale agriculture projects that improves the lives of our stakeholders and the economic sustainability
of the region.”
