Resources or the Company) advises that 3,742,393 vested performance rights 
issued pursuant to the Base Resources Long Term Incentive Plan (LTIP) have been 
exercised. 
 
Of the vested performance rights that have been exercised, 3,616,862 were from 
the 2017 LTIP cycle that vested following performance testing as at 30 
September 2020.  The remaining 125,531 performance rights that have been 
exercised were from the 2016 LTIP cycle that vested following performance 
testing as at 30 September 2019. 
 
For each performance right that was exercised, LTIP participants were allocated 
one fully paid ordinary share in Base Resources previously acquired on-market

In accordance with the terms of the LTIP, the exercise price was nil and the 
shares were allocated for nil cash consideration. 
 
The LTIP participants that exercised vested performance rights included
