    Placings to raise 750,000 and 600,000 to fund business development and working capital.

    Accudo Metals Pty Ltd. proposes to proceed with a definitive feasibility study on the potential use ofAlexanders leaching technology, subject to completion of its funding arrangements.

    Continued granting of important patents for leaching of oxides using AmmLeach and sulphides usingHyperLeach in key mining jurisdictions, including Canada and USA respectively.

    Broad mining industry interest in using AmmLeach for base metals recovery from amenable depositsas the focus on limiting capital deployment and reduction in All in Sustaining Costs (AISC).

    Exciting potential for leaching technologies in the recovery of cobalt, the key and currentlyirreplaceable component for delivery of thermal stability of most electric vehicle lithium ion batteries.

    New research and development (R&D) initiatives for the recovery of metals lithium and vanadiumwhich have important use in high technology energy storage equipment and solutions.

    The Electric Vehicle Initiatives (EVI a multi-government policy forum of16 major global economies) target isfor 20m EVs by 2020, and for 30% EVsales market share by 2030.

    Lithium global demand forecast toincrease from c.240kt LithiumCarbonate Equivalent (LCE) in 2017to >500kt LCE by 2025.

    EV & Energy - metals use for electric vehicles and energystorage:

    Cobalt - ~ 50% of worlds resources and supply from DRC

    Lithium - Li-Ion batteries

    Vanadium - vanadium flow batteries

    Zinc - Zinc Air battery technology for grid storage applicationsfrom a solar generation station.

    Nickel - Li-Ion battery cathode combination of Ni-Mn-Co.Demand for high-purity class 1 nickel may increasesignificantly from 33Kt in 2017 to 570Kt in 2025.

    Overarching this, the best method, in our opinion, for extracting these metals whereores are amenable is .

    Hydrometallurgy - an efficient and environmentally friendly leaching technology

  • The background

    Hydrometallurgy processes have major benefits

    Higher returns by increasing mine-site metal product value.

    Can makes uneconomic ore bodieseconomic.

    No associated concentrate costs, ie:transport, smelter & refinery charges(which can be > 40% of containedmetal value).

    Valuable metal by products can becredits, unlike concentrateproducers.

    Environmental benefits significant
