EML peer comparison

Highlights:

·   Potential capex saving of US$7.5m compared to the Scoping Study by utilising existing storage and loading facilities in Port of Casablanca as opposed to the Port of Mohammedia as envisaged in the Scoping Study

·   Indicative mine-to-port logistics cost quotes from Moroccan National Rail Company show no change in operating cost from the Scoping Study, despite a slight increase in transport distances given the potential use of rail rather than trucks for the majority of the journey

·   Access to a significantly larger port with a greater draft capacity, allowing a wider range of vessel sizes to be loaded, potentially reducing overall bulk shipping costs to target markets, including Brazil

·   Ongoing discussions with numerous Moroccan entities, including the Port Authorities, present opportunities for further improving Project economics ahead of upcoming Feasibility Studies
