The company has successfully completed its Eastern Conductor drilling program including the rehabilitation of all drill holes. This program represents extensional drilling immediately to the east of the proposed Uley 2 pit. Drilling encountered significant graphitic intersections. The first set of results (MD704, MD705, MD706) of the drilling program are expected next week. Results from this program will have a significant impact on the Uley 2 expansion strategy. The option of extending Uley 2 to the east has a number of advantages including the speedy pathway to a very low-cost extension of the Uley 2 pit.


The company will hold its AGM as a virtual meeting at 11:00am (AWST) on Friday, 19 November 2021 online at https://agmlive.link/QGL21.


The company lodges its Quarterly Activity Report and Appendix 5B.


Shareholders in this company should consider crystallising a capital loss in 2021/22 by selling their worthless shares. From 1 October 2021 we have made this process much easier and quicker. It can now be achieved online by entering transaction details here. While this usually makes good economic sense, we recommend you seek professional advice before buying or selling securities, your accountant is probably the best person.


The company lodges its Annual Report to shareholders.


The company provides an initial update on the Uley Drilling (Eastern Conductor). Two holes completed as part of the Phase 1 drill program. Successful testing of the Eastern Conductor, confirming expected high grade graphitic intersections within the Cook Gap Schist. MD704 intersected several graphitic zones. MD705 also intersected several graphitic zones, geological logging of this hole is still in progress. Drilling so far confirms the orientation and mineralisation properties displayed in the previously drilled section, 50m to the south of the current drill line (9,475m grid N). Graphitic intersections present within the Phase 1 drill program are validation for the use of geophysical conductive anomalies as an indicator for potential graphite mineralisation.


The company mobilises its personnel, equipment and the drill rig for the diamond drill program over the Eastern Conductor.

The Company has corrected a transcription error in the prior announcement (released 21 May 2021) relating to the quote attributable to ACT Capital.


The company appoints ACT Capital GmbH as its lead arranger and placement agent in connection with a bond offering for the financing of stage 1 of the Uley 2 process plant and related infrastructure. The funding structure proposed is a senior secured bond to be listed on the Luxembourg Stock Exchange (LuxSE) Exchange regulated Euro MTF market. The security package will include the Uley 2 business and project assets. Chimaera Capital Markets has been retained as the Company's financial adviser and will work with ACT Capital to ensure timely completion of the key milestones. The Company is well progressed in finalising the transaction's legal structure and will shortly commence the ratings process.


The Company's filed its 2021 Half Yearly Financial Statements as required in March 2021 without any audit disclaimer or qualification. Despite satisfying the conditions set for requotation, the ASX has advised that the suspension will not be lifted until the initial drilling as outlined in the Company's announcement of 7 May 2021 is completed and the results from that drilling released to the market. The Board does not agree with the ASX's concerns in reaching its decision but will seek to satisfy this condition as soon as practicable whilst also continuing the other activities of the Company.


The Company has now confirmed the scope of Uley 2 extension drilling program. This program will be divided into two stages. Stage 1 will cover the southerly extension of the existing Uley 2 pit location and Stage 2, the Eastern Conductor. The precise location of drill holes is based on the Company's extensive geophysical survey data combined with the structural data generated from the 2014 Drill Program from which the existing JORC 2012 reserves and resources were derived. The scope of the further exploration of one other of the additional high grade graphite envelopes within EL 6224 has not been finalised and will be the subject of a further announcement once the Company has concluded its work.


The company lodges its Quarterly Report and Appendix 5B.


The Company has notified shareholders of the general meeting to be held on 28 May 2021 seeking shareholder approval for the issue of new shares to related parties. This issue of shares is part of the placement of new shares to institutional and sophisticated investors announced by the Company on 21 March 2021. The significant renewed interest in the funding of critical minerals projects resulted in the Company making further progress in its discussions and negotiations with prospective financiers. The Company is in advanced discussions with candidates for the provision of lead arrangement and placement services in connection with a European bond offering. The Company continues its work with Sunlands on progressing the advanced processing and manufacturing pathway for the production of graphite storage media. This media, based on flake graphite sourced from Uley 2, is the critical component to be installed within Sunlands' thermal energy storage battery cells. In connection with the renewal of Exploration Licence 6224, the Board has approved the next stage of drilling development. The Company also releases a cleansing prospectus to remove any trading restrictions on the sale of shares issued by the Company prior to the closing date or otherwise under the prospectus. The prospectus also relates to an offer of 7,838,450 fully paid ordinary shares in the Company to the related entities to raise 509,499.25.

The company has not yet received any details of the information relating to the company's 2020 annual financial report. The Directors' position in respect of the Company's Report is clearly expressed in it and remains unchanged.

The Board notes that the technical work in relation to Uley 2 has been successfully completed and the project's feasibility has been established on its proved and probable resources alone. The Board remains confident that any uncertainty in the capital markets will be resolved once industrial activity returns to business as usual.
