General Disclaimer This presentation may include forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are based on management’s expectations and beliefs concerning future events.

  • 3. Disclaimer Ore Reserves and Mineral Resources Reporting Requirements As a company with securities listed on the ASX, Gindalbie is required to report its ore reserves and mineral resources in compliance with the Australasian Code for Reporting of Exploration Results, Mineral Resources and Ore Reserves (the “JORC Code”). While Gindalbie’s reserve and resource estimates comply with the JORC Code, they may not comply with the relevant guidelines in other countries, and do not comply with the U.S. SEC's Industry Guide 7, which, among other things, may require the use of different assumptions for the estimation of reserves, and does not recognise mineral resources. Accordingly, Gindalbie would not be permitted to report mineral resources in an SEC filing. Investors should note that Gindalbie's ore reserves may be lower if they were calculated under Industry Guide 7 and that its mineral resources are not proved or probable reserves, for the purposes of Industry Guide 7 and there can be no assurance that such mineral resources will ultimately be converted into such reserves or that Gindalbie will be able to legally and economically extract them. Future Performance This announcement contains certain “forward looking” statements. The words “believe”, “anticipate”, "expect”, “project”, “forecast”, “estimate”, “potential”, “could”, “may”, “target”, “consider” and “will” and other similar expressions are intended to identify forward looking statements. Forward looking statements, opinions and estimates provided in this announcement are based on assumptions and contingencies which are subject to change without notice, as are statements about market and industry trends, which are based on interpretations of current market conditions. Forward-looking statements including projections, indications or guidance on future earnings or financial position and estimates are provided as a general guide only and should not be relied upon as an indication or guarantee of future performance. There can be no assurance that actual outcomes will not differ materially from these statements. To the full extent permitted by law, Gindalbie and its directors, officers, employees, advisers, agents and intermediaries disclaim any obligation or undertaking to release any updates or revisions to the information to reflect any change in expectations or assumptions. There are a number of risks, both specific to Gindalbie and of a general nature which may affect the future operating and financial performance of Gindalbie and the value of an investment in Gindalbie including and not limited to economic conditions, stock market fluctuations, iron ore demand and price movements, timing of access to infrastructure, timing of environmental approvals, regulatory risks, operational risks, reliance on key personnel, reserve and resource estimations, native title and title risks, foreign currency fluctuations, and mining development, construction and commissioning risk. 3
