In addition, by reason of Evolution's acquisition of Ernest Henry, from today, all agreements implementing the economic joint ventures between Glencore and Evolution entered into on 23 August, 2016 have ended and Glencore has no further obligation to deliver any gold, copper concentrate or other metals under these agreements from 1 January 2022. Evolution also assumes all rehabilitation obligations and liabilities and will replace Glencore's rehabilitation bonds.

Glencore will offtake 100% of the copper concentrate produced at EHM.
