Net asset value per Ordinary Share: 81.1 pence.

The fall in the listed values of gold shares, and in particular that of Caledonia Mining Corporation Plc which affected the pricing of Bilboes Gold following the agreement to sell Bilboes in July 2022 for a consideration including Caledonia shares, was outweighed by the fall in Sterling during the month.

The Company had a total of 106,462,502 Ordinary Shares in issue with a further 700,000 shares held in treasury as at 31 August 2022.

First Tin Plc ("First Tin")

During August First Tin announced that it had commenced the Definitive Feasibility Study ("DFS") at its Taronga tin deposit in Australia. The DFS is being delivered by a consortium of Australian companies led by independent mining consultant Mincore Pty Ltd. It is expected that the study will be completed by the end of 2023.

First Tin Plc also announced that it has commenced the DFS at its Tellerhäuser tin deposit in Saxony, Germany. German consulting company, DMT GmbH & Co. KG, which has been appointed to undertake the DFS at Tellerhäuser has worked extensively in Germany and internationally. The study is expected to be completed during the second half of 2023. As part of the DFS workstream, First Tin has commenced a programme of diamond drilling at Tellerhäuser Germany, focussed on adding high grade tin mineralisation to the Indicated Resources already defined at the project. The drilling will consist of five parent diamond drillholes, with each having up to five deviation holes, designed to intersect the deeper, high grade Dreiberg tin mineralisation at a nominal 50m x 50m spacing around the parent holes. The deviation technique was chosen for its cost effectiveness given the upper 800m is host rock. The program will take approximately six months to complete, with first assay results expected during Q4 2022.

On 1 September 2022 F irst Tin Plc announce d that the results from the latest two diamond drillholes received from the Gottesberg tin project in Germany show that they intercepted broad zones of higher grade mineralisation . These and earlier results help validate First Tin's hypothesis that a higher-grade core exists within the large but moderate grade Gottesberg deposit. Results have now been returned from ten drillholes with six drillholes remaining outstanding. Gottesberg is a potential source of high-grade mineralisation that may be able to be pre-concentrated and transported to a central milling facility at the Tellerhäuser project, which is approximately 25km away, for additional processing.
