The first draw-down represents ~50% of the total bond proceeds. • The bond was well supported by a combination of large Australian and international funds, as well as the Australian Government body, the Clean Energy Finance Corporation (CEFC). • The Pilgangoora Lithium-Tantalum Project remains on schedule with first spodumene concentrate expected during June 2018. • Stage 1 plant construction and mine development continues to advance rapidly. Direct shipping ore (DSO) operations are also now underway, with first sales expected in early Q2 2018.
